1. tosca Dish Riser
Running out of space in your kitchen cabinets? This dish riser will help you out. It breaks up your cabinet space, allowing you to store dishes on and below it so you’re not left with a giant messy jumble of plates. Just make sure you read the dimensions first to ensure it’ll fit in your cupboard.
2. plain Side Table With Storage Shelf
As the name implies, this super simple side table is a sleek and streamlined replacement for a typical nightstand. Tuck your half-read books, candles and reading glasses in the open storage compartment, and what was once a cluttered tabletop is now somewhat concealed.
3. tosca Accessory Tray/mirror
We love a good dual-use product, so naturally we were drawn to this mirror and accessory tray hybrid. It’s just the right size to store some of your smaller makeup products as you get ready.
4. leaning Ladder Rack
We’ve already dreamed up tons of uses for this rack, but our favorite is propping it up in the bathroom as a towel rack. When you have a big family, towels start to take over the space, but with this ladder, they’re all in one place. And they’ll look kinda nice for once.
5. over-the-door Hooks Folding Hanging Coat Rack
Simply hook it over the door and fold out the rack when you need a little extra hanging storage space. When it’s not in use, you can fold it back in for a barely-there look. Buyers call it a game changer for small closets and point out that you can also use it to hang clothes to dry.
6. plate Toilet Paper Stocker
Say goodbye to your ugly toilet paper bin. This thing is sleek and will save you precious closet and cabinet space. Load your excess rolls into this case, and the sloped interior will ensure that they automatically dispense each time you pull one out. Genius.
7. tower Ladle Holder And Lid Stand
At first glance, this seems like a kitchen item you might be able to live without. But the 400 five-star reviews say otherwise. “I wish I had known about this item sooner! I can’t believe I’ve been living in my space for seven years struggling with my pot lids and a regular spoon rest,” writes one reviewer. Another notes that the design is so minimal and unobtrusive that it easily blends in on her countertop. Needless to say, we want one.
8. remote Control And Pen Holder
Is your coffee table a total mess? Same. And part of that chaos comes from remotes, coasters and various odds and ends strewn all over it. This holder provides storage compartments for all thosethings. Fingers crossed you’ll never have to dig between the couch cushions for the remote again.
9. plate Magnetic Spice Rack
The outside of the fridge is usually reserved for magnets and family photos, but this super useful spice rack is making us rethink that. It’s magnetic, so it’ll stick onto the side of the fridge (or anyother metal surface), freeing up a little more storage space in your pantry. Win!
