Keeping a small space organized and well-decorated is an ongoing challenge. (We have a whole section of our site dedicated to it, after all.) And while there are a million ways to hack it, there are some basics that are good to have on hand no matter your style. Ahead, three Amazon buys currently on sale that can help you maximize your minimal space.
Unless you’ve really mastered minimalism, chances are you can always use a bit more vertical stacking space. Seville Classics’ expandable shelf was designed for kitchens but is great in almost any room in the house. It can expand from 15″ to 30″ with no special equipment required, meaning you can move it around as needed. The flat, wide slats on the top also mean you can balance smaller things with ease, and the treated surface is rust- and corrosion-resistant.
If your shelves are limited, over-door storage is also a classic solution. It’s great for cutting boards and baking sheets that can cause clutter in cabinets. But you can also get creative – enthusiastic Amazon reviewers have also used it to store foil and plastic wrap and even liquor bottles. (Even if your at-home bar set-up isn’t that fancy, you could adapt that hack for oils and vinegars.) The rack can also be mounted for a more secure, permanent set-up.
In a perfect world, we could all have giant laundry rooms where delicate and hand-wash-only clothes could be air-dried with ease. Until then, however, there is the foldable drying rack. AmazonBasic’s accordion-style version gives you 11 rungs for drying both small and large items, with a 32-pound weight capacity. Collapsed, you can easily fit it under your bed or in a hall closet, and its treated to resist mildew and rusting from wet clothes.
