18 Cool Lego Storage Solutions
Creative Solutions for Organizing Legos
Most moms (and dads) want to encourage their children to build with Legos, but are sick of stepping on them everywhere!
In my house, we devote a drawer of our coffee table to storing Legos. This makes it easy to clean up, and helps keep partial builds together and out of the way while not being used. There are many more creative options out there, though. Here are some of them!
1. Awesome Homemade Lego Storage Desk
This is an easy and inexpensive do-it-yourself option for storage. You need:
- Two Sterlite plastic storage carts, measuring 14.5" by 24".)
- Three 15" by 15" Lego base plates.
- A piece of plywood, measuring 15" by 45"
Affix the base plates to the plywood, and attach the plywood to the plastic storage carts.
2. Acrylic Storage Bricks
3. Lego Organization by Color
Organizing Legos by color is a great way to store them. Simply label plastic storage tubs with the different colors. In addition, you can try separating them out by shape or purpose.
4. Our Lego Coffee Table
The pictures below are my storage solution. We have a coffee table with large, deep drawers. We organize the loose bricks by color into old strawberry cartons and save room for partial builds. It works for us, and when they're put away you wouldn't even know they're there.

6. Awesome Clear Acyrilic Storage Containers
7. Under-the-Bed Lego Storage
Built-in under-the-bed drawers are great for storing toys like Legos. However, you don't need to have a special bed. You can store anything under the bed with plastic storage tubs, or prettier wooden containers.
8. Homemade Tables With Storage
If you're pretty handy, you can turn a plain Ikea desk into a Lego workspace with storage. On one of the tables, use a saw to cut out holes to hold plastic containers, which can be used to store blocks when not being used.
