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.

Leaning Mirror

$156.99

This full-length mirror leans against the wall, so you don’t need to worry about mounting it. It sports a clean, minimalist iron frame finished in black with a wood backing. If you do want it off the floor and on your wall, though, it can mount in minutes (hardware included!).
