In secondary and high schools, getting their first locker can be an exciting time for students. It can feel special to be able to manage their own personal items, and even decorate the locker how they like.
While it is essential for students to maintain a neat and organised school locker, it is fun to also decorate the locker to reflect their own personality.
Let’s see some of the fantastic locker ideas for schools.
1. Motivational Locker Magnets
These decorative magnets help inspire creative energy and support a happy mood.Consider adding bright fridge-style magnets that send good vibes whenever you open the locker door.
2. Pen Organiser with Drawer
Whether you want to organise highlighters or favourite colours of pens, this attractive pen organiser with a small drawer can be an excellent addition to your DIY locker decorating ideas.
3. Shelf Hanging Locker Organizer
These shelf-hanging organisers are a fun locker addition that offers lots of storage and also prevents damage to lockers. You can maintain your locker’s cleanliness and maximise your school locker organisation using the various pockets of the organiser.
4. Magnetic Whiteboard
A magnetic whiteboard that you can stick on the inside of the door can be a helpful tool to help you stay organised and efficient. Whether writing down the essentials you need for the next class, or recording important dates, times or other important information, you can note your reminders on this whiteboard.
5. String Lights or LED Fairy Lights
These battery-operated lights are perfect for giving that warm and inviting feeling, making it fun to open the locker door. Make your private space your own by lighting it up with these inexpensive fairy lights.
6. Plastic Hooks
These super cheap plastic hooks can not only serve the purpose of hanging your gym bag or coat, but you can also hang attractive mini plants or something else of your liking.
7. Custom Locker Magnets
Motivational quotes are excellent, but magnets with your name engraved on them give you a personalised feeling. But before placing such name-labelled magnets, it is necessary to check school locker decorating rules.
8. Hanging Storage
This cloth-made hanging storage is another school locker essential. You can store your phone, brushes, iPad, extra pencils, or whatever you need nicely, making your locker look more glamorous and organised. However, this item only takes up a little of that coveted locker space.
9. Magnetic Clips
When searching for practical yet attractive locker items, these super cute magnetic clips are a great addition to any locker. They are a stylish way to hold art, homework, and more, helping keep your locker from becoming cluttered.
10. Small Calendar
A small calendar to tape to the inside of the door can work magnificently. You use it to mark important due dates and other events.
11. Picture Frames
One ideal way to customise your space is by decorating your locker with your favourite pictures. Placing attractive photos of your family or loved ones in the lockers not only represents your personality and interests, but can be motivating and a happy reminder throughout the day. These magnetic picture frames also prevent your photos from becoming damaged.
12. Metal Book Ends
These metal bookends work best to keep your book storage from falling apart. You can easily accommodate your books, binders, notebooks or more and hold them back from tumbling from one side or the other.
13. Magnetic Key Holder
It is easy to lose your keys if kept in your backpack or pocket. It’s easy for them to fall out without being noticed, to drop to the bottom of the bag or even get stuck in a book, making them hard to find. This key holder is an effective way to hang the keys within the locker so that you don’t lose your keys and can find them quickly.
14. Pencil Case
Though originally designed to store extra pens, scissors, markers, stencils or other essential stationery items, these huge pencil cases can be a great way to store spare items in your locker so you won’t run short of your daily items.
15. Air Fresheners
The air fresheners with an appealing fragrance in the lockers provide a soothing feeling and can bring a smile to your face when you open them.
16. Locker Emergency Kit
Emergency kits in small pouches are the perfect way to store personal belongings like make-up, lipsticks, body sprays and other emergency supplies you might need.
