Trying to keep a home organized can be incredibly tough. You start to pack things away without any rhyme or reason, and suddenly you don’t know what is where. Plus, you need extra storage space, but how would you do that in a small area?
With these, that’s how. Here are 15 solutions to add space to ANY home.
1. Kitchen Sink Storage Trays
Trays allow you to use space that’s normally too far back. Make your life easier by adding trays under your sink.
2. Back-of-Door Shelving
Utilize the back of your cupboards for extra storage.
3. Behind Closet Door Storage
By adding shelving to the doors of your closet, you free up ample space within and have a more organized space.
4. Tray Divider
Some cupboards tend to be taller, so there’s wasted space as most kitchen items aren’t particularly tall to begin with. Add a tray divider to utilize that space.
5. Loft For Kids
If your house has no dedicated space for a playroom, why not convert unused space in your foyer? All it takes is a little handiwork!
6. Shelves and Drawers under Cupboards
Most people tuck away appliances or just organize things on the counter. By adding shelving and drawers, you automatically create a more organized, spacious area in your kitchen.
7. Open Shelving
Look around your home for blank spaces. Normally, you are using it at all and, by adding some simple shelves, you are able to make everyday items more accessible.
8. Under-Cabinet Drawers
Remove the kick boards underneath cabinets and you automatically have more storage in your home.
9. Baskets Above Cabinets
For items you don’t use all the time, put them in decorative baskets and place them above your shelving units.

12. Behind-the-Door Storage
We open and close doors all the time, never thinking about the wall behind it. By adding some slim shelves, you make extra space in whatever space you’re using.
13. Slide-Out Storage
Have really thin, empty spaces that just do nothing but collect dust? Add some slide-out storage. It’s easy to use and immediately adds plenty of storage space.

14. In-the-Wall Hidden Storage
There’s no such thing as too many mirrors, right? Why not crave a small space out of the wall and conceal it with a mirror? This will function as a kind of giant medicine cabinet.

16. Add Chains
There’s a lot of wasted space in clothing closets, as the clothes only hang so low. By adding chains, you utilize more of that empty space.
