above the door shelves
Often our floors, especially against the walls, get the most cluttered in a small space. Our reflex is to find ground storage or to stuff something away in a cabinet or series of shelves. Hanging a shelf above the door solves all of those problems.
is it a bookshelf? or a table?
cover your clutter
DIY a storage box for your bookshelf that appears as if it’s a collection of books. Instructions are as easy as cutting the spine off a book (it’s painful to kill a book, we know) and gluing it on a box.
easy corner storage
Displaying jewelry on a shelf or on hooks around your vanity mirror is an option (that often looks pretty, too). But if you would prefer to hide at least some of your stuff, consider a storage mirror like this one.

graduate from ottoman storage with a bench
We all know (and have owned) storage ottomans, but this bench is a sophisticated game changer. We’re picturing it at the foot of your bed. It can store anything from extra clothing (guilty) or blankets.
try an expandable table
Entertaining in small spaces is hard for too many reasons. And throwing a dinner party? That’s almost out of the question. Almost. Expandable tables allow for more seating and table space all without the need of a space for a whole extra (and unsightly) folding table.
