DIY Space-Saving Solutions and Storage Ideas For Your Home

May 16, 2018

When everything in your home is organized or has its own space, it makes cleaning and cooking easier and more fun. If you’re tight on space or you’re looking to maximize your storage, here are some innovative DIY solutions for your home.

DIY Space-Saving Solutions and Storage Ideas For Your Home


  1. Island storage – If you’re not using your island for seating, consider adding a few shelves under one side of it for more storage. Glass jars and wooden crates can store everything from kitchen necessities and decorative items to vegetables and recycling. 
  2. Paper towel drawer - To keep your paper towels out of sight but convenient to use, a paper towel drawer is a good solution. An open-faced drawer with a built- in dispenser gives you easy access to paper towels and a place to store extra rolls.
  3. Glide-out shelving - To maximize all the space in your cabinets and pantry, install glide-out shelving. Hard to reach items will be easier to find and you can double your storage space. Whether you're looking to create space under your bathroom sink or better organize your pots and pans, glide-out shelving is the perfect solution.
  4. Baskets, bins, and jars - Everything looks better and is easier to find when it's organized. Keep track of items in your pantry by keeping like items together in the same baskets. Use glass jars to store baking supplies such as flour, sugar, and salt. Use bins in your closets to store clothing by season. 
  5. Floating shelves - You can add these fun and functional shelves to any room in your home to add storage. In your kitchen, you can display your favorite decorative items or keep your frequently used items within arm's length. You can mix and match sizes and styles for an eclectic look.
  6. Create-your-own-island - If your kitchen space does not include an island, consider creating your own by repurposing an old piece of furniture. Paint and update an old console table to create an additional area to prep and serve food with pizzazz. 
  7. Add a desk - Since your kitchen is the hub of your home, a desk will keep you organized. If your layout allows, add a side desk to the end of your cabinets. It can also serve as a convenient space to do homework.
  8. Drop zone - When your family comes in after a busy day, it's a good idea to have a drop zone for shoes, backpacks, and more. Convert a small closet to a drop zone if you don't have the space to add one. Remove the hanging bar and add hooks, cubbies, and shelves to store frequently used items.

You don't have to invest a lot of money to add some extra storage in your home. Think about simple ways to use the space you already have and make it better. Happy organizing!
