You can never have enough storage around the home.


Adding more storage options allows you to keep your house clean and tidy, plus helps ensure you can quickly and easily find what you need.


Fortunately, it can be easy to create new storage that is not only practical but also a stylish addition to your home.


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

2. 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. We have step-by-step instructions for building your own here - How to build a toilet roll holder shelf.


3. Portable workbench and garage shelving by @Tara86 


A 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.

5. Bin storage box by @ponting72 


Here’s a wonderful 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.

With the goal of increasing storage space and providing a functional workspace, Workshop member lcooksey88 tackled this impressive garage makeover using Pinnacle storage products such as pegboards to mount and display various tools.

9. Changing kitchen cupboards to drawers by @pete_brig 


Drawers are much more practical and accessible than cupboards. You can typically fit a lot more in a drawer, and items are easier to reach. 


10. Wine storage and bookshelf using pallet timber 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.
