10+ home gym storage solutions that are smart and stylish

10+ home gym storage solutions that are smart and stylish

Let’s face it: Home workouts are hella convenient. I do them all the time, as for me, it’s so much easier to get through a workout vid than sweating it out in front of a load of strangers. That being said, it can be real difficult to find ways to organize all of that equipment.

I currently have all my weights, resistance bands, and mats crammed into my spare room, which is a bit of a mare TBH. They’re taking up way too much floor space, which is very precious in my tiny rental. There must be a storage solution for this, right?

Turns out, there are lots of great ideas out there! These pics and vids are all totally genius ways to keep your gym equipment in one place. By copying these, you’ll be able to make all your pieces easily accessible for when you want to have a workout sesh.

Gym storage ideas that are perf for small workout spaces

Whether you have a home gym or are repurposing another room (like me!), storing gym equipment in a stylish way is a fab idea. As well as picking out inspo, I’ve also rounded up some buys, so you can start getting organized ASAP.

The prices below were correct at the time of publishing this article.

1. Soften it up with baskets and boxes

Soften up your space by using baskets and boxes to store your home gym equipment. By using a cute storage solution like this, your equipment can be stored anywhere in your apartment without ruining the aesthetic. If your home gym area is a beautiful, cozy space, it will makes you happy to be there and more likely to work out — win, win, right? I absolutely love the home gym pictured by @updatemycape, with its minimalist shelving and woven storage baskets.

2. Peg it on the wall

Peg boards are honestly a total dream for renters who can’t hang things up on their wall. They provide vertical storage, and can be styled so they look part of the decor. You can easily create hooks for resistance bands, foam rollers, yoga mats or dumbbells, and add shelves for cozy plants and motivational signage to get you in the groove. I’m totally into the pink gear that @_megortiz has used in her gym, which looks majorly Barbiecore. Try to pick a color scheme and stick to it to recreate this look. 

3. Hang up a yoga mat rack

I love a home yoga sesh, but shoving yoga mats into a pile in the corner of the room doesn’t exactly look cute. Instead, make your Instagrammable yoga mat part of the decor with hooks if your landlord is all good with you drilling into walls. You could even put yoga blocks on top and hang towels on the hooks too. If you can’t drill into walls, go for a dedicated mat holder instead, that you can neatly tuck away. Add an indoor plant or three for all the boho vibes.

4. Organize your gym in a closet

If you have bright gym equipment that’s grabbing too much attention in your room, then stowing it out of sight is a fab idea. If you have a closet that you aren’t using, you could build sturdy AF shelving into it, to carry even your heaviest dumbbells. Professional organizer Amy Bloomer at Let Your Space BLOOM has packed all her pieces into one space, making the equipment very accessible. The easier it is to grab, the easier it is to get going and working out. Right? Right…

5. Use your gym gear as decor

Ugly gym equipment? NTY. If you’re really stuck on space, go for gym equipment that actually matches your interior for a fun way to showcase your personality in your space. Like, there’s no point buying a cute yoga mat from the TikTok shop, and keeping its beauty hidden from the world. I’m so into this set-up from Cara Newhart from Never Skip Brunch has created, with metallic dumbbells and a cork yoga mat. It looks like the dreamiest nook to work up a sweat in, TBH.

6. Add a foldable desk
