Our brains naturally want to look at the horizontal spaces we have available to us – drawers, floors, shelves, etc. Unfortunately, you will inevitably run out of room. You can’t always add more square footage to your house, but what if you took advantage of the space above you? Using the space you have, you can double (or even triple) your storage by implementing vertical solutions. These tips and tricks are especially beneficial for smaller spaces where every inch really counts, but vertical storage is useful in any size home.

Plus they have a cute little drawer for all your seasoning packets! Whoever thought of these really is a genius, aren’t they?

A great way to store items vertically is to simply hang a few hooks on the wall. Command hooks are great for more than just hanging up pictures and other decor, they’re the perfect organizing solution for small spaces like this!
When we walked in to organize this craft room and saw a giant 10-foot long pegboard wall, we were in organizer heaven! This wall gave us endless possibilities, and we definitely had fun with it. But you don’t have to have an entire wall of peg board to be organized. The Container Store has a Peg-Board Tiered Cart Attachment that will level-up and double-up your vertical storage without taking up an entire room.
When trying to find any additional space, this highly valuable organizing real estate is often forgotten about – behind the door. But organizers never forget!
