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.

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.
