DIY Crafty Storage Solutions At Home

Whether you are living in a flat no bigger than a shoebox in the centre of a city or have a four bedroom detached house in the countryside, we could all do with storage solutions to help keep the space organised and tidy.

A disorganised cluttered home will start to have a negative effect on your day-to-day life as you are slowed down by missing keys, phones, wallets and other items among the mess. Of course, self storage such as RSS can help you remove a large amount from your home without having to get rid of it. But, before you put everything into storage there are ways to find it within your own home.

Are you feeling crafty? Then why not give your home a bit of character and create these yourself? Here are a few DIY crafty storage solution ideas to get you started:


Art Piece Jewellery Box

Jewellery is one of the hardest things to find a home for and organise. Necklaces and bracelets often end up at the bottom of a jewellery box, tangled together, never to be worn again. But not with this handy art piece jewellery box you can create yourself. You can either buy a painting or, if you are feeling creative, paint your own – then turn it into a place that hides jewellery, saves space and looks fantastic!

Painted Mason Jars

Use various containers such as mason jars, vases and tin cans to create storage for a variety of things. Paint and decorate these however you wish and then they can be used in the office for stationary, in the kitchen for utensils or they could be attached to bathroom walls to hold toiletries.

Branch Clothing Rack

Do you find that your wardrobe doors are bursting open and you struggle to find anything to wear due to the sheer amount that is in there? Try displaying your favourite items using this funky branch clothing rack. Simply head out into the countryside to find the perfect branch – this can be as short or long as you wish – clean it up and attach it with picture wire to your desired location.

Magnetic Strip

Create your own magnetic strip – this can be used in the kitchen for knives or other utensils, in the bedroom for items such as nail clippers and tweezers or the kid’s playroom for toy cars. Don’t just stick a long magnet to the wall, this can be as creative as you wish and designed to fit in with the room. If you are going for a rustic feel in the kitchen, for example, then take some reclaimed wood and drill holes in the back for the magnets.

Suspended Table

Suspended furniture makes rooms look more spacious and are easy to create yourself. A floating table, for example, takes up the empty space rather than your much needed floor space. These are easy to create with a board and wire – they can be as big or small as you wish and decorated to complement the room.
