I am lucky to have high ceilings, which allows me to have vertical storage pieces in even the narrowest of corners. Here are a few of my favorite finds for when you need a lot of storage in a tiny space.

1. The Grid Tower is perfect for a tight bathroom space. CB2, $199

2. There are endless options for the Pipe Bookcase, including book, media, and office storage. Adding baskets also gives an added clothing storage option. West Elm, $499

3. At only 16" wide, this shelf can be squeezed into any living or dining room nook. Room and Board, $600

4. The Sapiens bookcase is the perfect solution for book worms, as it holds and displays a lot of books in a narrow space. Design Within Reach, $198-$298

5. The studio narrow wall shelf has become a classic. Pottery Barn, $299

6. The 6-drawer Malm chest makes the perfect vanity when you don't have space for a traditional style vanity. IKEA, $179

7. The Madison Loop Ladder bookshelf is a modified version of the studio wall shelf. Target, $149.99

8. For the shoe hoarder, this 4-tier shoe tree is a dream come true. Container Store, $39.99
