Keeping your home organised can help you find what you need quickly and easily. It's also a great way to maximise storage space.


Bunnings Workshop members have shared plenty of ways to organise different parts of their home.


Below are some examples for inspiration. Let us know if you need a hand with replicating any of them. 


1. Install a pegboard


Pegboards are an easy way to tidy up tools without taking up limited floor space in a garage or shed. Leanne (@lcooksey88) used Pinnacle pegboards to mount and display her tools.

2. Redesign your pantry


Workshop member @Acewoodhome transformed their standard walk-in pantry into a stylish and practical butler’s pantry. With plenty of shelving, dedicated containers and labelling, it’s easy to keep organised and tidy.

4. Make a cutlery organiser
