1. Utilize vertical space
For even the tiniest bathrooms, hang high shelving for a smart storage solution. Since it may be out of everyday reach, we love how this design uses the extra wall space to display décor (how cool is the antique train sign?), plants, and extra toiletries. Even a few rolled up towels add to the spa-atmosphere.

If there’s one thing you can’t have enough of in a kitchen, it’s places to pack things away out of sight – and these smart solutions that will save you space in spades.

Let’s face it—revamping your shoe storage isn’t nearly as exciting as overhauling the pantry. Restacking your spices is an instantly gratifying, Instagram-worthy project, but the shoes you hide in the back of your closet just don’t seem as pressing.

I haven’t addressed the issue, either, because it’s always been just functional enough to ignore. I’m upgrading to a bigger closet though, and I’m officially in the market for a new solution.
So, unless you’re a cast member on the Real Housewives with a color-coded walk-in closet, your shoes probably don’t get the space and attention they deserve. Below, we’ve rounded up storage options from the classic to the unconventional. Bonus: They look cool, too.
