Storage doesn’t have to be complicated. Hanging organisers are a fantastic space solution — perfect for smaller collections or children’s bedrooms. 

Made from fabric, hanging organisers are one of the best LEGO set storage ideas because they come with multiple shelves. This allows you to store your LEGO pieces in plastic boxes or their original sets. 

You can hang these organisers on doors or walls, keeping LEGO bricks easily accessible and off the floor (trust us, you really want to avoid stepping on LEGO). 

Suitable for small- to medium-sized sets, they offer a neat way to store bricks by colour or type and are an affordable, practical, no-fuss storage option.

How to store your LEGO: step-by-step guide

How to store LEGO boxes

Start by looking at your collection to determine how many LEGO boxes you have and how much space is available. 

You can either invest in some sturdy shelving units or a bookcase capable of holding the weight and size of your boxes, or stack them in an available corner.

When organising, stack your LEGO sets by size, theme or set number. This will make it easier to find specific sets when you need them. You could also create and print labels for each stack to make them easier to identify.

Keep your boxes in a cool, dry space and check them from time to time for signs of wear or pests if you’re storing them in the garage or shed. 

How to store extra LEGO pieces

If you’ve organised and displayed your main LEGO sets but still have some extra LEGO pieces lying around, purchase a tackle box or drawer divider to prevent them from getting lost. 

Sort them into compartments by colour or size to make them easy to find when needed, and regularly organise your pieces as you collect new ones to avoid mess and confusion.

How to store big LEGO sets

When it comes to big LEGO sets, consider using glass cabinets or sprawling bookcase displays to show off your hard work without the pain of dismantling your larger sets. 

If you don’t want your LEGO on display, you could also try under-bed storage boxes that will easily fit your collection. Just remember to dust them regularly to keep them looking their best.

How to store LEGO once built

You’ve spent hours, maybe even days, painstakingly building your LEGO Eiffel Tower, made from 10,001 pieces, and can’t bear taking it down and wasting all your hard work.

We get it — we wouldn’t want to either. And you don’t have to. There are plenty of ways to store built LEGO sets!

Simply decide where you want to display or store your work of art and invest in a display case, floating shelf or bookcase to showcase your model.

How to store LEGO sets for investment

If your LEGO is an investment piece, you’ll want to take extra care of it. Choose a storage location that’s safe, secure and, most importantly, not exposed to the elements or drastic changes in temperature. 

Store the sets in their original boxes and within plastic containers with lids to protect them from dust and moisture. If you’re stacking them, do so carefully or steer clear of this altogether to avoid your LEGO becoming damaged or misshapen. 

Periodically check on the condition and contents of your storage boxes to ensure they stay in mint condition. You should also avoid storing your sets directly on the ground, which can expose them to dirt, moisture and dust, and can damage your pieces over time.

How to store display LEGO

Choose an eye-catching location in your home and invest in a high-quality display case or a glass cabinet to show off your LEGO sets in all their pride and glory.

Arrange your models in a way that showcases their best features and incorporate lighting to enhance their appearance and create a striking display. 

Keep the area clean and dust-free, and rotate your sets from time to time to keep your display looking fresh and exciting.
