DIY corner – what to do if you don’t have the space for it?

However, it should be noted that a DIYer needs a place to pursue his interests. Tools take up a lot of space, besides, usually DIY is not clean enough to be engaged in, for example, in the bedroom or living room. The ideal situation is if you have a garage or backyard, but this is not always the case. Fortunately, a DIY corner can be arranged even on a small balcony in a block of flats. Find out how to do it!

DIY on the balcony – how to organize it?

Look around your balcony and consider how much space you are able to devote to a DIY corner. Sometimes it may turn out to be quite a lot. In some cases, on the other hand, every inch of space counts. Adjust the size of your work surface to the amount of space. Ideally, it should be a table with drawers, or maybe an old desk? You can easily store tools or screws in the drawers so that they do not lie on top.

Space for tools is a must

If you manage to organize your drawers, that’s great, but it won’t always be possible. That’s when you need to invest in tool bins. You can find them both in stationary stores and online. Just remember to secure them properly – especially if you have pets at home and don’t want them to reach screws or scissors.

A workshop board will add character!

A great option is workshop boards. If you have the opportunity, it’s definitely worth getting such an item. You can put a lot of tools and accessories on it, and at the same time it will make your DIY corner get a proper character. Thus, the workshop board has not only a practical function, but also a decorative one.
