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

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 has also made another version, and we have published a full step-by-step guide to making your own.


2. New shed storage project 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.


3. 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.

4. D.I.Y. portable bike stand by @Tara86 


Tara created a wonderful portable bike stand on castors so she could quickly and easily move them around. After receiving many plaudits from the community and requests from members wanting to build something similar, Tara generously shared step-by-step instructions on how to replicate the project.


5. 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.


6. 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.


7. 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.

8. D.I.Y. pallet wood shelf by @Tara86 


This wonderfully simple project is not only a great way to add storage, but also an attractive feature using recycled pallet timber.


9. Pull out storage to utilise space next to fridge by @DIYology 

This simple yet brilliant project made from pine, dowel and runners has inspired other community members to create their own versions. We are also looking forward to an upcoming new revision where the shelves can be moved up and down for added flexibility.  


10. 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.
