When you live in a small space, you have to get crafty with how you store your things. That could mean buying under-bed clothing bins, investing in a multi-compartment shoe rack, or figuring out the best way to organize your reusable food containers. You really have no idea how creative you can be until you realize your groceries won’t fit inside your fridge! But even if you think you’ve got it all figured out, many of us small space dwellers are completely overlooking some prime storage spots that every home has. I’m talking about corners, of course!

The Best Corner Organizers: Closet, Kitchen, Bathroom

Because they can be quite narrow and out of the way, it’s understandable if you’ve never considered placing any furniture in these elusive spots. But there’s actually a whole category of home goods that have cornered this market. To see what I mean, just check out the organizers we’ve rounded up below. There’s one (or in some cases, a few) for every room of the house that’ll help you make the most out of previously unused spaces.

Do you have a corner organizer you love? We want to hear all about it! Let us know your favorite in the comments below.

Whether you place it by the front entryway or in your bedroom, there's no doubt you'll get tons of use out of it.

You could technically place this triangular shelf riser anywhere you want on the kitchen counter, whether that's by the sink or next to the stove. But it'll also fit neatly into that spot below where the cabinets meet, transforming your lack of pantry space. The riser can hold anything from cookware to dry goods, as long as it doesn't outweigh 22 lbs.

Embrace French farmhouse vibes with this adorable two-door corner cabinet, which is available in five different sizes and finishes. You get all the necessary assembly hardware and instructions included in your purchase, not to mention an accessory that adheres the cabinet to the wall so that it never budges.

Optimize your laundry space with this chic hamper, which sports a minimal canvas bag and steel frame, complete with wheels. You have the option to purchase it with or without a lid. We definitely recommend the former, as you can use the surface to hold your detergent, dryer sheets, and other laundry accessories. The hamper stays so out of the way, you might even forget it's there.

We suggest getting this tiny but spacious corner bookcase if you struggle to fit a nightstand next to your bed. The unit measures just under a foot wide, so you can place it in the corner next to your bed and have open shelving without anything pressing up against the side. The piece would also look great as a side table by the sofa with its wooden finish and minimalist design.

You can really put it anywhere, including on your desk or even in the bathroom. At $27, the shelf is a total steal.

Showers need organization, too, and this adhesive corner shower caddy is a great option. "I was impressed with the light-yet-sturdy construction of these black, slatted iron trays," wrote AT contributor Barbara Bellesi Zito in her review. The organizers use adhesive hooks to lock them in place and, thanks to their suction cups, can hold more than you'd expect.
