While book lovers might feel aghast at the thought of putting their books in hangers, this decor solution is meant for kid’s books, which have fairly thin spines. This way, you can keep all their favorite reads in a corner. This simple solution is created with a hanging holder, felt, some wood, and string. It can also be rolled up for easy storage.
Never forget your keys again, thanks to this colorful wood slice holder. Simply paint it in bold, vivid colors, add small hooks, and hang it near the door so you won’t ever find yourself breaking into your own home again.
Charging stations will no longer look disorganized and messy thanks to this simple but brilliant decor solution. Turn a bottle of baby lotion into a cellphone holder that hangs from your charger so everything is just in one place, making for a more streamlined look.
Hidden drying racks
Bulky drying racks are a thing of the past. If you have clothes that can’t go in the dryer, attach a DIY folding rack to an empty wall. It will save you a lot of space in the laundry room.
Sliding laundry baskets
If you have a ton of laundry baskets with no home, build a simple dresser that allows you to store them between washings. The best part is that you can keep the top of the dresser as a folding or storage space as well.
Small items bin
Find a place to store odds and ends of your day-to-day life, like keys, coins, ID cards, and such. You need a bowl or a small box that serves as a “catch-all” by the entrance of your home so that you have a convenient place for them. You can buy a box or a bowl anywhere, but why not try this leather DIY?
Spices are always important in the kitchen, but they can be a bit tricky to store. Magnetizing looks pretty, but they can take up a lot of wall space. Cupboards will just lead to a lot of digging around. So why not use a shower rack to organize your spices instead? It’s an insanely simple solution to such a common problem.
If you’re the kind of person who has a key to everything—the front and back doors of your house, your room, your best friend’s house, your boyfriend’s house, your office locker, your gym locker, your vintage car, your fridge (you get the picture)—then you’re going to want to have an easier way of remembering which key goes where. The best way to do this? Paint them with nail polish! You can shave off some precious time looking for the right one in your key ring.
Shelves are pretty pricey, and many of them look pretty run-of-the-mill. If you want prettier shelves, DIY options are great solutions. Start with inexpensive staircase shelves that can save you a lot of room space, they’re less bulky and considerably prettier to look at.
Vertical storage spaces
Shower caddies are pretty useful. If you can find a tension-based caddie, it will be perfect for the laundry room to store your detergent, cleaning supplies, towels, clothespins, and other odds and ends.
We have already talked about many decor solutions, but this “IKEA hack” is particularly pretty brilliant. If finding space for a vanity is difficult, then why not find one that can roll around so that you can work at your most convenient space for the day. Perfect, right?
This incredibly easy hack can make your life simpler. Instead of looking at a mess of electronic wires on your night stand, attach them to binder clips to the side of your desk. Thread the charger cable through and your messy tangle of wires can finally disappear.
These decor solutions are very easy to follow so you can start doing them yourself and turn your home into a cozier place of abode.
