5 Creative Ways to Store Floats & Poolside Items

Pool floats are a staple of any fun pool. Whether you use them to lounge in the water for relaxation or to ride fearlessly into battle with your friends, a pool just isn't complete without at least a few of these recreation regulars. But with great fun comes great responsibility. When pool time is over, finding proper and convenient storage for these larger items like pool floats, toys, towels, and other poolside accessories can be a challenge.

Thankfully, there are a ton of creative people out there. And since we love checking in on our Leslie's communities to make sure everyone is enjoying their pools, we thought we'd find who had some great ideas on creative ways to store floats and other poolside items.

Check out these options below. Hopefully one (or more) of them can help you get your backyard setup closer to pool perfection.

PVC pipes are a popular choice when it comes to DIY pool float storage holders. We love this simple design from the blog Semigloss Design. When floats and tubes are too heavy or awkwardly shaped, a net to corral them just won’t do.

Rack your Rafts
