My Dream Home: 10 Cool and Creative Storage Ideas

by Dagmar Bleasdale on December 29, 2011


Do you like to organize or declutter? I love finding cool and creative solutions for mountains of toys or the hundreds of books we have.

Here are 10 of the coolest and most creative storage ideas I’ve found.

Maybe they will inspire you to organize or declutter?

1 Cutting off the first step of the ladder to have all that storage under the bed is genius:

2 Two inexpensive bookcases and a little trim make this look like an expensive build-in:

3 I wish I had the space to do this:

4 Yes, please! Cool storage under stairs:

5 Why didn’t I think of this? Just use a hanger to store all your scarfs:

6 How clever is this inexpensive roll-out pantry?

7 I have enough little tea cups for jewelry storage to do this:

8 This would be so easy to do! Wooden crates, spray paint cans, a few nails, and voila — cool and inexpensive storage that would work in any room.

9 Hang baskets from towel rods. This would work great in a pantry or laundry room.

10 Wouldn’t it be nice to have a whole cupboard to just store Christmas or holiday items? We have to lug ours into the attic.

What are your favorite creative storage solutions in your home?

There is something about really well organized storage that makes me feel like a rock star mom, although it’s usually a dream and not a reality for me!

The crates on the wall as shelves are very cool, and such a simple idea.

I love numbers 4 and 6. We have deep closets and rolling the shelves out would be so nice! Regarding number 7, I found “jewelry bowls” on Etsy and bought one and I love it! I love buying hand made and it is such a cool idea!

Thanks for sharing these!!
