If you live in a small place, finding room for all of your essentials can be challenging. So what can you do besides wish for an extra closet? Elevate your organizational efforts—literally. These hanging storage ideas will allow you to use storage space you didn’t even know you had.
Colorful Coat Knobs
Coats. Hats. Umbrellas. Bulky and oddly shaped items like these eat up closet space. Luckily, you can transform any blank wall into helpful hanging storage using coat knobs. You can even create an interesting design feature by scattering the knobs across a wall instead of aligning them. Most types require a drill for installation, but what if you live in a rental where drilling into walls is a no-no? Try peel-and-stick knobs, such as the colorful LOSJÖN hangers from Ikea.
Retail Display Turned Home Storage
Grid panels are typically used to create store product displays. At home, you can use them to store pretty much anything you can hang, such as tools and shoes. Many office supply and hardware stores sell grid panels, and they come in a variety of sizes and colors ready for your DIY touch.
