Store remotes

Remote controls and coffee table styling don’t exactly go hand in hand. Corinne from @my_mayfair shares her simple trick of using a Kmart long canister to keep remotes organised yet discreet. It’s just one of her top Kmart organisation tips in her video below.

Family hub planner

Any hack to make running a household easier is a winner in our book — and when it looks this darn stylish, it gets bonus points! Soph is the maker and organising queen behind @nestihome on Instagram and explains how she made this giant family planner.

“I used two sheets of the Kmart chalkboard vinyl, three of the medium and narrow drawer tidies for mail sorting and two cork boards. I used foam double sided tape to attach the drawers and a white ‘Posca’ pen to write with”.

This has got to be one of cleverest, most useful DIY projects we’ve seen to date! A fab example of a project done on a budget, using clever Kmart hacks to get your life super organised!

School bag station

School stuff gets everywhere… so this Kmart hack really grabbed our attention. Maricar took the 8-cube storage shelf and made a few adjustments to create this brilliant school bag station.

Paired next to the Kmart book shelf to store all the other school bits and pieces, this makes a great storage system for keeping everything neat and tidy. Ahh, organised bliss and an absolute winner in our clever Kmart hacks for an organised home!

Organise your life with Kmart… everything

Are you ready for some serious organisation envy?! Check out how Hannah Barclay has organised her entire home with almost all Kmart products. Her bathroom is so tidy and organised, and that craft supply cupboard is art in itself!

We also love the use of a lazy susan for storing cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink.

Stylish study nook

For our more advanced DIYers… this one’s for you! Check out this fabulous study / home office nook that Venetia Elbourne-Hobbs created! Wall mounted, these shelves have been custom built to perfectly fit the stylish bamboo Kmart drawers, desk trays and magazine file.

We are seriously impressed!

Neat ‘n’ tidy bin solution

Staying in the kitchen, here’s an idea to keep your bins neat, tidy and out of sight! Michelle took the Kmart parquetry cabinet and two Kmart bins to create this clever bin storage solution. A great idea if you have pets or small children who think bins are something to play with!

Timber lazy susan

A lazy susan is super useful in the kitchen. We love using them to store condiments, or in pantries to utilise those awkward corner spots. Kim has taken it to the next level by attaching a timber tray to the top of the clear lazy susan. Stylish and useful!

Caddy hack

There’s more than meets the eye with this clever Kmart hack that Alanna made. She says it was an easy weekend job that required no power tools as she used the existing screws and holes.

“I wanted the caddy the same height as the bath so moved the tiers up and cut the legs to height. Then used the original top tier as a lid and now have somewhere to store my lady things,” she explains.

Hanging planters as wall pockets

You’ve most likely seen the Scandi-style wall pockets from high-end design stores but they come with a high-end price tag. Ashleigh created a similar look using the Kmart hanging planters. Genius!

Bamboo drawer as floating shelf

Whether you’ve got a young child who loves reaching for cords or simply want a discreet way to display smaller electronics, such as your home phone, Megan has found the solution! She turned a bamboo drawer upside down and mounted it to the wall to create a wall shelf with an underside that is large enough to keep cables out of sight.

Water bottle storage

Look… this one isn’t revolutionary, but it is handy so we thought we’d still include it in our clever Kmart hacks. These stackable wine bottle holders are a great solution for storing water bottles. They work great in the pantry or, as Style Curator writer Dan has done, put them in your fridge to have plenty of cold water on hand.

Create your own removable storage shelves

If you have high shelves in your home, it can be tricky to fully utilise the space, especially if you’re renting and can’t make any permanent changes. Another clever Kmart hacker came up with this handy solution. Simply secure two Kmart mesh shelves together with cable ties, trim and that’s it!
