8 Smart Storage Solutions for Really Narrow Spaces
Okay, we admit it: We’re obsessed with organizing. So naturally, the bigger the challenge, the more fun we have figuring out how to organize it. That’s why we rounded up some of the best ideas for arranging really narrow spaces (think: the sliver of space between your fridge and the wall, and a strip of wall in your pantry) to inspire your own home organizational endeavors.
Here are some of the smartest ways to make the most of skinny spaces.
1. Invest in a storage tower.
Turn even the tiniest bit of spare room in your pantry into a storage-savvy display with a compact pull-out drawer cabinet. This slim tower from The Container Store is small enough to squeeze into a narrow closet, but offers enough storage room for all sorts of snacks and shelf-stable ingredients.
2. Or a slide out storage tower.
Similar to a pullout drawer cabinet but with easy-to-access open shelves, this Slide-out Storage Tower on Amazon is an awesome way to utilize the tight space between your fridge and the wall, and even comes with wheels for easy maneuvering.
3. Consider picture ledges.
Slim, sleek, and super easy to install, wall-mounted picture ledges — like MOSSLANDA ledges from IKEA — provide just enough room to store all sorts of stuff (like cutting boards or baking pans) and are small enough to fit nearly anywhere. You can even tuck them into a corner and use them to hold folding chairs, like IKEA has done in this kitchen above.
4. Score a door storage cabinet.
Got a door to a pantry to a laundry room off the kitchen? This storage cabinet from Amazon attaches directly to your door’s hinges and offers eight whopping shelves of storage space.
5. Discover pull-out solutions.
6. Pick up a slim rolling cart.
A little rolling cart goes a long way in a cramped (and storage deprived) room. This wheeled wonder from Amazon comes equipped with three spacious storage baskets and will set you back less than 20 bucks.
7. Buy a Clutterbuster.
If you don’t already know about space-saving potential of a Clutterbuster then now’s the time to wise up. Designed for hanging clothes, coats, and towels, this swiveling cutie attaches directly to your door hinges for unexpected storage space. It could work some magic for all your aprons and kitchen towels.
