You can never have enough storage around the home.


Plenty of storage options allow you to keep your house clean and tidy, plus help ensure that you can quickly and easily find what you need.


Fortunately, it can be easy to create new storage options that are not only practical but also stylish additions to your house.


The Workshop community can provide plenty of inspiration. Here’s the top 10 most popular storage projects on Workshop by pageviews:

 ChargingStation.jpgCordless drill charging station

1. Cordless drill storage charging station by @Wayne


This very clever storage solution for cordless drills has been a consistently popular project on Workshop. Keen woodworker Wayne also made a second version earlier this year.


2. Custom garage storage by @boris


Although we haven’t seen the end result, this custom garage storage solution has inspired many Workshop visitors and members alike. An organised, clutter-free garage is obviously a popular goal.


3. New shed storage project by @Tara86


Another terrific example of what can be achieved to create customised storage and an accessible working area even with relatively limited space. The portable workbench is a particularly smart idea, and the discussion also includes great storage ideas from other community members like @Rolando.

4. Bin storage box by @ponting72


Here’s a great way to ensure rubbish bins are out of sight but still easily accessible. It’s a neat and tidy solution that could be customised to your needs.


5. Kitchen herb storage ideas


This popular discussion kicked off by @Andadams contains many great kitchen herb storage solutions, including clever custom creations from ralph and aly that help ensure common ingredients are easily accessible and organised.  


6. Pallet wine storage and bookshelf by @KGriff1


Looking for a quick and cheap storage solution, KGriff1 recycled a pallet into a fantastic shelf to store wine, books and potted succulents. All that was needed was some extra MDF and some sanding work.


7. Home made shelves by @RobPegley


Using lengths of cheap pine that were painted then “distressed” by sanding back, these D.I.Y. shelves also feature scaffolding joints. Creator Rob describes the look as “punky, industrial, vintage and playful”.

8. Toilet roll holder shelf by @Rodney


Who would have thought you could turn toilet paper storage into a work of art? This creative and striking feature enlivens the smallest room in the house and has been much admired.


9. Pallet wood toy chest by @Jonb


Playfully dubbed “the Blackbeard”, this large toy chest was built to last from recycled pallet timber and can store a large collection of playthings.


10. Wooden vinyl record storage project by @Dallas_Mc


An attractive bespoke storage box with hinged lid for a growing vinyl record collection, complete with leather pulls and gold hinges.
