Designing The Perfect Room For Your Daughter? 3 Creative Ways To Add Much Needed Storage Space

Vanessa Washington

Teenage girls are notorious for having too much stuff in their room. Now that you're designing your daughter's new room, you'll want to include some extra storage. You might think that means adding more closet space or completely remodeling her room. Luckily, it doesn't mean that…at all. With just a few creative touches, you can give your daughter all the storage space she needs for all the little things she owns. Here's some ideas to get you started.

Towel Racks Aren't Just For the Bathroom

If you thought towel racks were just for the bathroom, you haven't seen them used for additional storage. This simple idea incorporates towel racks and wicker baskets for a simple way to make room for all those little things your daughter uses every day.

Supplies You'll Need

  • Towel racks of various lengths

  • Wicker baskets

  • Shower curtain hooks – two for each basket

  • Electric drill


  1. Use a drill to attach the towel racks to the wall.

  2. Open one shower curtain hook and carefully push one end through the spaces at the top of your wicker basket.

  3. Repeat the process to place the second shower hook on the basket.

  4. Using the shower curtain hooks, hang the basket on towel rack.

  5. Hang several towel racks around the room to create additional storage space.

Don't Pass By those Old Wood Crates

Those wood crates that are used to ship fruit and vegetables can be transformed into bedroom storage space.

Supplies You'll Need

  • Several wood crates

  • Various colors of acrylic spray paint

  • 4" wood screws

  • Electric drill


  1. Apply a coat of spray paint to your crates and allow them to air dry.

  2. Use your drill to hang your crates on the wall using the 4" wood screws.

  3. Be sure the crates are hung with the openings facing out.

Take the Spice Rack Out of the Kitchen

If your daughter is into beads, you might be tired of finding them all over the room. This storage idea will keep the beads safe and secure, while still making them accessible for use. Bring a spice rack into your daughter's room. Fill each spice bottle with various beads and store the bottles in the spice rack.

When you're designing your daughter's new room, remember to plan for her storage needs. You don't have to remodel or spend a lot of money. These simple storage ideas will help you provide your daughter with the space she needs to keep her new room neat and tidy.
