2. An easily hangable T-shirt organizer for everyone who's running out of dresser space to store the million and one t-shirts you can't bear to throw away.
3. A handy mobile shelf to squeeze the most out of those teeny crevices in your home. You can store canned food, seasonings, hair supplies, accessories — anything really. With four wheels, this mobile unit is totally easy to move.
4. A entryway shoe rack and umbrella stand so those last-minute essentials have a place to live rather than being scattered throughout your apartment. Leave everything right at the door in an orderly fashion with this sturdy wooden tool.
6. A hidden bookshelf because bulky bookshelves are eating up all your floor space. Mount them on the wall so they can double as decor 📚!
7. An ottoman to use as a coffee table or an entryway bench. Either way, it'll hide your shoes, magazines, and other clutter in *style*.
8. A wood finisher to restore your wood surfaces to their original glory and bounce light within a room. The brighter a space, the larger it looks.
9. A drop-leaf dining table to expand when it's time to host guests, and shrink when you're eating alone.

11. A space-saving Murphy bed that looks like a shelf during the day but pulls down when you need to rest. It's made of genuine Birchwood, unlike most beds on the market.
12. Or a sleek, easy-assemble Thuma Bed that has nine inches of space underneath i.e. an excellent underbed storage opportunity.
13. A useful toilet paper stocker, because there's nothing worse than realizing you're out of paper AFTER you've done your business. Why put toilet paper in the closet or the cabinet, when you need it in the bathroom?
14. A set of two floating shelves — so-called unicorns of interior design, because they look amazing in most spaces. Take your books, knickknacks, hair products, or anything really, off the floor with the ultimate small space storage solution.
15. A luxury white linen duvet set so you can instantly elevate your cramped bedroom — I mean living room. After all, there's a reason hotel interior designers use white sheets.
16. A litter box enclosure that keeps the litter box out of sight and out of... smell. The enclosure is also a bench, so it'll be less obvious that you have pets running the space.
17. A set of six neutral prints to make a gallery wall and make that hallway feel like less of a tunnel and more like a journey.
18. Or a set of digital prints to add dimension and movement to visually expand those walls that feel like they're closing in on you.
19. A set of cube shelves because they're an amazing open and closed storage solution. Put a few baskets in there to style your mess or stack a few units together to divide a room.
20. A mold and mildew stain remover spray so you can erase the questionable, yet unexplainable stains that have been on your rug since the first month you got it. Clean stuff automatically makes your space feel less cramped.
21. A hanging handbag organizer because your purses deserve better than your kitchen counter. Free up that space and start using it for cooking again!
24. A neutral rope basket so you can gracefully hide your mess. Whether you place it in a closet or on a shelf, this will look so much better than having random stuff lying around.
25. A wall sconce with an exposed bulb that can be hardwired or easily plugged in. Either way, you won't waste floor space on a lamp.
27. A set of furniture legs because lifting your bed or dresser off the ground creates the illusion of more space.
28. A TV mount that's easier to install than you think, trust me. Not only does mounting save floor space, it draws the eye up for a better viewing experience.
29. A mirror for bouncing light within a space and therefore making it feel bigger and more luxurious.
30. A curved cat wall bed because floor space is at a premium and your fur baby needs someplace to escape.

33. A cleaner and deodorizer to affordably restore your carpet to its glory days, you know, before it acquired that dingy color. Having clean surfaces automatically makes a room appear larger.
34. A zippered sleeve for anyone who's tired of tripping over wires everywhere. No more feeling like Britney Spears in Toxic trying to limbo under all of those cords.
35. A brushed nickel Command Hook so you can hang your face masks, towel, or jackets rather than throwing them on the chair. Making organization easy is key to maintaining a pristine space.
36. A set of magic hangers to get maximum usage out of your tiny closet space without wrinkling your clothes.
