If your home is short on storage space and long on clutter, you can understand how important it is to maximize every square inch. This is where hidden storage comes in. Hidden storage DIYs can help you tuck your stuff away, so you can enjoy a tidy home while keeping everything you need within reach. Here are 10 hidden storage ideas you can start using today.
1. Inside Cabinet Doors
If you’re not storing things on the inside of your kitchen cabinet doors, then you’re missing out on some valuable — and handy — storage space. Use Command Hooks to avoid drilling any holes.
2. Under Cabinets
Chances are, you’ve got some unused wall space under your kitchen cabinets that could be used to store things and keep your counters clutter free.
3. Small Walls
You might thing that small stretch of wall is useless, but it’s not. Especially in a kids’ room, it can be used for valuable shelving and hanging storage.
4. Under the Stairs
If you have stairs going up, you’ve likely got some empty space underneath that could be used for something awesome….like simple shelving. This under-stair space has been turned into a pantry.
5. Look Up
If you want to make the most of your space, look up. Near your ceiling, you’ve probably got some space that would be ideal for some shelving. Take your bathroom, for example. Is there anything stored above the bathroom door?
6. Over the Toilet
Some simple floating shelves over your toilet can be used to store toilet paper, soap, towels, or knick-knacks. Make it look cute with baskets and wire bins.
7. On the Deck
If you have an elevated deck, why not create a “trap door” of sorts that can be walked on, but also hide ample storage space underneath?
8. Between the Studs
Try carving out a little space between studs in your home to create a shallow closet for mops and brooms. Genius!
9. In the Corner
Got a corner you never thought you could do anything with? Try creating some corner shelves, and you’ll essentially be adding square footage to your home.
10. Under the Sink
How many spray bottles are under your kitchen or bathroom sink? Install a cheap and easy tension rod and you can hang them under there instead of sitting them on the shelf. You’ll save precious storage space this way.
