Everything You Need to Upgrade Your School Locker
Take your locker from blah to fab with a few must-have accessories.
Makeovers are always on our mind, but with the start of a new school year, we’re thinking about a totally different kind of makeover — a locker makeover.
Lockers are often small, lifeless, and, let’s get real — painted some pretty weird colors. So, you might be surprised when we show you how easy it is to turn this small piece of real estate into a functional and stylish locker mecca for your books and personal stuff.
Keep reading to get our best locker upgrade tips and tricks. Locker design school is officially in session!
1. Locker Shelf
Even in a small locker, adding a shelf will immediately give you twice as much space. Use a shelf to help you stay organized; put all your books and notebooks in the order of your daily class schedule, so they are easier to grab as you come and go all day.
2. Mesh Cup With Mirror
Another easy, functional upgrade is adding a mirror to your door. This mesh cup stores extra pencils, pens, sticky notes, and even lip gloss.
You don't technically have a wall, but you can still decorate with wallpaper. Choose a fun pattern like these simple polka dots to transform the whole look of the inside of your locker.
4. Magnetic Disco Ball
Truth time: Sometimes school isn’t so much fun. But you can make sure every trip to your locker is with its own disco ball. This magnetic disco ball hangs from the top of your locker and will bring a smile to your face every time you open it.
5. Polaroid Frames
Keep pics of all of your besties on the inside of your locker with these adorable, retro photo frames. The frames are meant to make each of your pics look like an old school Polaroid pic. They're magnetic, so they can easily be moved around.
Do you need a rug in your locker? Probably not. But this adorable, fluffy, shag locker rug probably changes your mind. Keep this rug at the bottom of your locker and use it to make your space look more like its own stylish little room.
7. Mini Vase
Brighten up your school day with a pretty, fresh flower. This magnetic, ceramic vase can hold one stem. Go faux, or place a fresh flower and replace it every few days.
8. Washi Tape Magnets
Keep track of all of your sticky notes, important scraps of paper, or receipts with these cute, washi tape magnets. Use the magnets to hang photos, artwork, or inspiring quotes.
9. Alphabet Magnets
Use these magnets for reminders, or leave cute messages for your friends in their lockers. These alphabet magnets will help you connect with your friends via inside jokes, funny messages, or encouraging ones.
