If there’s anything I’ve learned from the tiny house movement (oh, and living in New York City), it’s that storage space can be found in, or created out of, the most unexpected places. Every square inch of a tiny house has to be maximized for organized storage, but even the largest houses can benefit from their sleek, smart solutions.
The products and ideas below are collapsible, stashable, and take advantage of often overlooked storage opportunities, like the sides of the fridge, between the toilet and vanity (yeah, that space), and high, high up on the walls.
My bedroom is short on space, but I wanted a dedicated space to do my hair and makeup, so I put a shallow floating shelf up on the wall and hung a mirror above it. It’s the perfect size to hold all my supplies, and doesn’t take up much space at all.
Perhaps you’ve just donated a bunch of shoes, or perhaps your new living quarters don’t have the capacity they used to… either way, an adjustable shoe rack is the answer. Plus, when you eventually break down and buy a few more pairs, there’s room to accommodate them.
