Even if you don’t have that luxury, when presented with the right materials, you can customize your own closet to maximize the space for all your belongings. Get your closet makeover started with hanging organizers with shoe pockets on the side, which fit folded pants, tops, and sweaters, vertical over-the-door organizers for containing purses, a slim profile shoe rack for the closet, and stylish baskets for the storage you keep up high.

Between the shoes that immediately get kicked off when you get home, to the mail that seems to pile up out of nowhere, it doesn’t matter what size your entryway is—it’s probably going to get cluttered. Some solutions? A full-length wall mirror with hooks for scarves, hats, and umbrellas serves a dual purpose for small spaces. You coula also create your own closet with a wooden hall tree with cabinets, shelves, and knobs for hanging. Alternately, if you have a few feet of entrance space, a storage bench is a perfect spot for putting on shoes. Install shelving above for extra hanging space and you’re all set.

Yes, a standard kitchen comes stocked with cabinets and shelving designed to hold your kitchen essentials. Sometimes, though (especially if you live in a small apartment), it’s just not enough space. From stylish labeled utility kitchen canisters to sleek drying racks, don’t overlook the items that give function and style to your kitchen. De-clutter your counter space with vertical storage solutions such as a magnetic kitchen organization rack that holds a paper towel roll, spices, and hanging utensils, or try an expandable kitchen counter organizer that adds an extra tier to put your small appliances on top of each other.
