12 Ways to Bring Order to Your Tiny Home

Clear the clutter with smart (and chic!) storage solutions.

If space is at a premium in your home, you're probably always searching for creative storage solutions. Small spaces aren’t usually known for their generous closets or expansive pantry spaces. My little home is only 750 square feet, so I’m definitely a card-carrying member of the Small Space Club.

I've rounded up 12 of my favorite picks to help you tackle just about every storage challenge in your home — with style.

This full-length mirror easily leans against the wall, so you don’t need to worry about mounting it. Plus, it comes with hooks and rods to help with additional storage. You can use the hooks for scarves, purses, jewelry and hats. And with a couple of hooks, you could even hang baskets on the rods to store even more accessories.

When you only have a tiny amount of space in your entryway, a bench like this might be the perfect solution. It offers a convenient spot underneath to store shoes, and you could keep a basket or two on top to store winter gear and mail.

4: Corner Hanging Bar

This corner bar could be a lifesaver in tiny spaces. You could use it in an unused corner of your room for extra hanging space, or add it inside a simple reach-in closet to give yourself more room to hang clothes. It would even be great in a laundry room to hang clothes that need to be air dryed.

Its design lets you set up the tower over a cart or a mini-fridge to maximize your space, and it gives you two large shelves and a bar to store dish towels or kitchen utensils.
