Do you have an awkward wall? My old apartment had a narrow kitchen. The refrigerator was at the end, and opposite was a cabinet. In between was an awkward wall that I could never do much with without something blocking one of the doors. So I just left it blank. These "trompe l'oeil" stickers by Mar Mar Co would have been quite useful. The witty wall graphics come with a metal hook to allow you to hang things with. The hook doesn't take up any floor space, and blends in with the graphic. We loved this trash can (which comes with a hook to hang plastic bags) and coat hanger (with a hook for coats, etc...) featured in the latest Elle Decoration (UK edition).
