Broom holder

This broom holder easily fixes to the back of a door to keep cleaning supplies neat and out of sight.





The project


I wanted to hang some brooms and dustpans from the laundry door to keep everything tidy. I had leftover timber and stain from making my desk, and purchased holders and hooks.


How to build a broom holder


Step 1


Sand and stain the wood, and let it dry for a day.


Step 2


Mark out where to place the broom holder on the wood and pre-drill holes. I placed mine at 60mm from the edge. Then mark the position of your fixing screw in-between the broom holder as this will hide the fixing. Pre-drill for mounting.


Step 3


Measure out where to place the holder on the door. For me, it was 1500mm from the floor to the top of the holder.


Step 4


Add silicone or another adhesive to the back of the wooden holder. Mount the wooden holder through your pre-drilled holes and make sure it is level.

Step 5


Attach the broom holder through your pre-drilled holes and any other hooks.

It keeps everything tidy and if any of the attachments or hooks break over time, they can be easily replaced.
