    Consider these your best friends when it comes to stashing and stowing your stuff

    The challenge to almost any homeowner is trying to fit everything they own in what is often very limited space. We’ve seen the most clever storage ideas, but how many of them make use of the vertical space in our homes?

    Stand in the middle of your home, look up, and discover just how much more space you’ve got. Here’s a quick guide on what you will likely need to maximize that vertical space.

    File organizers

    Place them upright inside kitchen cabinets and easily slide in trays and cookie sheets. This way, you see everything you have at a glance.

    Framed canvas

    Hang those dainty earrings against a framed canvas and save space on your dresser (not to mention this will also prevent your accessories from getting all tangled up).

    Canvas bags

    A pretty alternative to laundry baskets on the floor would be labeled canvas bags attached to a towel bar on the wall. Make sure the holes and hooks on the canvas bags are sturdy enough to hold the weight of your laundry.

    Magnetic boards

    Versatile enough to hold notes on the wall above your desk, or knives on your kitchen wall, magnetic boards are easy to install and clean.

    Chains

    With some S-hooks, you can transform a simple chain into a bag organizer. Inside your closet, use trouser hangers on a vertical chain to neatly store scarves.

    Ladder

    Magazines don’t always have to take up space on your coffee table or side table. Find an old ladder where you can hang them; let the ladder rest against a blank wall.

    In the bathroom, place it on the floor and let it lean against the wall directly above the toilet tank and use it for hanging towels.

    Find out how this handy organizer can go beyond the garage: Hang it on one wall of your home office or above a stand-alone kitchen counter—place the pegs at your desired height and hang away!

    Towel bars

    Here’s a nifty trick: Install two towel bars parallel to each other on your bathroom wall and use it for storing rolled hand towels or toilet paper rolls.

    Plate rack

    A built-in plate rack on the wall can also serve as a bookshelf in a child’s playroom.

    Foldable plate racks, on the other hand, are helpful in organizing pot lids inside kitchen cabinets.

    Plant hangers

    [​IMG]
    In the playroom, plant hangers (similar to the one in photo) can hold smaller toys and minimize the danger of you or your kids tripping over them on the floor.

    Cooking essentials such as onions, garlic, and other vegetables you can keep outside the refrigerator can also be placed here. Make sure you hang it close to the prep area for easy access.
