We all have it: blank wall space that can be put to work! Whether yours is in an entryway, mudroom or kitchen, try these solutions for a neater (not to mention cuter) life at home.

3. A Soft Basket

Yes, there is a difference. A soft basket corrals everyday stuff, like sunscreen and sunglasses, with charm.

4. A Floating Shelf

Preferably, one with room to display art. It'll pretty up even the most hyper-tidy space.

5. Lidded Boxes

When placed up high they're ideal for gloves and other out-of-season accessories.

6. The Perpetual Calendar

It's always in style, and helpful for seeing the month at a glance as you dash out the door.

7. A Key Rack

This means never searching for yours again — or for the dog leash.

8. Hooks

If mounted low on a wall, they make backpacks, handbags and totes easy to grab and go.
