Despite the small spaces, your jewelry deserves some tender loving and care, and this means storing all your pieces of jewelry right.
For most of us, unfortunately, this is easier said than done, which means that you may be struggling with a lackluster storage solution for your jewelry, which is why your jewelry is either all over the place or why you keep losing your favorite pieces.
To bring that struggle to an end, here are some of the best storage solutions for your jewelry, especially if you don’t have too much space.
Jewelry storage ideas for small spaces
1.Get a Bracelet display.
To make the most of the space on your dresser and to comfortably hold all your bracelets with ease, you may want to buy or make a DIY bracelet display.
This display is T-shaped with a wide circular or square, or even rectangular base made of wood or metal like brass. In addition to holding your bracelets, this display would also hold your watches comfortably. You could also loop some of the longer necklaces around it.
For most of the DIY pieces, the display is made of an upcycled paper towel roll which you may want to cover with a piece of cloth made of velvet or any other soft material to hold the bracelets and watches in place while also protecting them.
This bracelet display will not take up too much space, and it’s not going to cost you much money.
2.Magnetic jewelry display
Make the most of your vertical spaces with this magnetic jewelry display. It is designed elegantly, and it not only works as an effortless display for your jewelry but also is an elegant décor piece.
You may like the magnetic bit that holds your stud earrings with ease, and the best part is that you won’t ever have to worry about the stud earrings disappearing on you when you need them.
The design of the display also allows for fast and easy access to the jewelry. You may like the vertical wooden bar positioned about 1/3 the length of the display from the bottom because this will hold the extra pieces that haven’t been hung up just yet. The hooks at the bottom will hold your necklaces, bracelets, and the bigger hoop earrings with ease.
3.Hooks and/or metallic chains
This is the other effective way of taking advantage of the vertical spaces in your home. In this case, you will need some chains and hooks to hold your earrings and necklaces from.
This is a particularly great solution for you if you own tens of dangling earrings and need to keep them in an area where you can see each piece and the pairs easily. The hooks would hold your bracelets, anklets, and necklaces.
The best part about the hooks and chains option is that you can have multiple chains and hooks on the wall or just a few, depending on the number of jewelry you own. Naturally, you will need more space if you are big on jewelry and accessories.
This is also a simple DIY project. You only need to screw at least one thin strip of solid wood on the wall then get the screws and attach a number of the hooks to that strip of wood from which your bracelets and necklaces will hang.
For the earrings, you’d have to screw a long and thick stainless steel chain to that wood on the wall – you will hook your dangling hook earrings to the chain.
4.Get creative with hooks on driftwood pieces.
If you are creative and need to incorporate some unique designs into your small space, driftwood would be a great option for you.
Driftwood is affordable, but what makes it a great choice for most people has to be the fact that driftwood blends with pretty much all kinds of décor, from Scandinavian styles to farmhouse homes décor styles.
So, you could easily use driftwood for décor. If you cannot buy ready-to-use driftwood, you may opt to salvage driftwood pieces from the neighborhood, clean it, then cut it into the appropriate size.
You will need small hooks to screw it to the wall and hang the jewelry from. You will need twine or rope to hang your driftwood from.
5.Industrial pipe DIY jewelry display
If the table-top tissue roll holder option doesn’t work for you, try the industrial pipe display. This will work well for you if you are into industrial styles or if you like to infuse some industrial style to your home décor, and the pipes do the job really well. The best part is that the sturdiness of these pipes makes the jewelry display perfect for hanging heavier and chunkier jewelry pieces. Just make sure that the base is heavy to support the pipes and the jewelry.
Not only is this strategy effective, but it’s also fairly affordable, and the pipes come in different shapes and sizes, meaning there is something for everyone.
And if you want this piece to really pop, choose the black piping, and screw it to a heavy chunk of wood, preferably one in black or dark brown, to make the metallic color pop.
You need to screw the metallic piping to that sturdy piece of wood to create the T-shape from the industrial pipes. Once stable and secure, you could add any number of horizontal pipes of varying lengths to the pipe to hang additional pieces of jewelry.
6.Use a travel jewelry case.
There are multiple varieties of travel jewelry cases on the market today, and they make excellent jewelry storage solutions for use at home.
All you need to do is to find one of the cases that features a hanging design when opened.
With such a case, you can hang the jewelry behind the door or in the wardrobe, and all your jewelry pieces will be secure, easily accessible, and not taking up needed space.
7.Use a retro-tiered dish.
This provides an elegant display for all your jewelry, especially for the pieces you wear often. You can place this piece on the bedside table, and you don’t have to worry about it taking up much space.
These are just some of the storage ideas for your jewelry if you have limited space. They are not only functional but also stylish, and most of these ideas will not break the bank.
