Lego tables don't have to be a huge piece of furniture that takes up half the living room! It can be as simple as a storage ottoman, or double as a homework desk when playtime is over. Having a designated Lego building area helps keep the pieces from wandering throughout the house!
My son loves this DIY Lego table with storage bins that I put together for him. He can create whole worlds on the baseplate covered tables, and store away his favorite builds in the pull-out drawers underneath. The overhead storage bins are perfect for sorting smaller blocks by color or size.
This simple floating shelf packs a ton of storage for Lego pieces, and the shelf above can display all his creations! It hovers over my son's small Lego table as a shelf, but could be turned into a wall-mounted Lego table as well.
This adorable DIY storage cube is perfect for keeping Lego or Duplo pieces in one spot, and the lid doubles as a building area!
Lego Minifigure Storage
Lego storage isn't limited to just bricks! I never quite realized how many minifigures my son had until I saw them all in one bin! When he's in the middle of an imaginary ninja battle, finding the right bad guy in that jumble of pieces is tough. By giving these little characters their own space, it frees up storage for other things and makes them easier to find!
This DIY Lego minifigure display case is easy to build with just 1x2 boards and plywood. Add extra fun for kids with adhesive Lego tape that sticks to the walls and ceiling! This Lego minifig storage gets them out from underfoot and on display. The free woodworking plans make this project even easier!
My son is constantly pawing through pieces trying to find that elusive one at the bottom. The clear sides of this DIY Lego bin make it easy to spot what he's looking for, and two baseplate slots means he can build a city on the go anywhere!
We spotted these genius Lego storage bags at BrickCon this year, and Swoop Bags was kind enough to send over a few to try out. It's amazing how many pieces fit inside one of the large bags, with room for multiple kids to gather around and build together.
Clean up is a snap! Just pull the cord and all the pieces get "swooped" up into the bag!
The mini bags, like this one, are perfect for travel or for separating minifigures from the other loose bricks.
With a huge Lego collection like ours, sorting by color isn't enough! By breaking down loose pieces into individual small bins by color and size, our son can find exactly what he's looking for when working on a big build!
This hanging organizer is great for small spaces! Hang a clear shoe organizer over the door and fill each pocket with different colored Lego pieces.
Lego Storage Containers
The Lego minifigure head is an iconic part of these building toys. I can't even count the number of disembodied heads hidden in the carpet of our playroom! Make putting them away fun with one of these giant minifigure heads!
When all the Play-doh has dried up, turn the containers into these adorable Minifigure heads!

Your lego storage area looks fantastic! I have a quick question though- can your son reach the wall mounted organizers? Or do they come down during play time for easy access? They look tall in the picture, but maybe that’s just the photo angle.
And I love Her Tool Belt's portable lego tote for the car! That really is genius!

It looks like the organizers are really high on the wall, but they're only a few feet high. The attic ceiling is sloped, so the point where it meets the wall is only 3 feet tall.
