The Best Over-the-Door Storage Racks and Organizers
Make the most of vertical door space with these clever organizers that creatively store all your household essentials.
Though not statistically studied, we think the most underutilized part of any room or closet is the door. The hidden potential of storage is unmatched, especially when a door is only hiding the mess inside. I recently revamped my bathroom closet with a rack system from The Container Store, and I still marvel over how organized everything is now.
Over-the-door racks are an effective way to organize while maximizing limited space. We'll walk you through our favorite picks in a wide array of styles and materials, offering options that fit a variety of lifestyles and storage needs.
Whether you need more storage on the back of your entry door, shower door or cabinet, this compact over-the-door organizer is a perfect choice. A mesh basket stores kitchen or bathroom essentials, small bags and other necessities, while six hooks provide space to hang towels, hats, utensils or clothing.
The pocket style over-the-door racks are usually large enough to accommodate a pair of shoes for ladies or children but may only fit one shoe per pocket for men's styles. They prevent dust from accumulating, and you can see the whole shoe from the outside for easy access. They're also handy in other rooms of the house for household tools, toys and supplies.
Racks are very efficient and provide air circulation but only display the soles of shoes and can catch dust. Shoes slip onto the frame, providing a way to maximize the number of shoes stored in a system. Hiding your shoes is now super easy; just close the door.
