    1. A colorful horseshoe magnet to give your bare fridge doors some character.

    Get it from Amazon for $14 (available in three colors; get the bottle opener for $17.72.)

    2. Or, an organizational rack for the side of the fridge with a spot for paper towels, frequently used spices, and plenty of hooks for utensils.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.43.

    3. A sheep toilet paper holder that'll hold your guest's attention (in addition to your rolls).


    Promising review: "After using the bathroom, my husband sought me out to inform me that he loves this product. He was so delighted, and I was surprised at his reaction to the toilet paper holder. We used to stack our TP on top of the toilet tank. Easy to put together, and stands on floor. It holds lots of TP, and best of all, it is cute." —Murphy

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    4. A tiki tissue box holder to make you feel very blessed.

    Promising review: "I've purchased this as a gift for 10 years. It is beautiful, functional, unique, and made of exceptionally durable material. It is ALWAYS received well." —Barbra Tucker

    Get it from Amazon for $20.49+ (available in three colors).

    5. A humidifier for your radiator — it requires no electricity, so just fill it up with water, plop it on top, and voila: air-improving vapor.

    MoMA Design Store

    Get it from the MoMA Design Store for $34.95.

    6. A metallic-flecked toilet seat so your cheeks can have a taste of luxury.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69+ (available in small and large and in silver and gold).

    7. A dispenser that'll give your paper towels the happily ever after they deserve.

    Artori Design

    Get it from Artori Design for $38.90.

    8. A space-saving outlet shelf so you don't have to let that Sonos speaker gather dust on the floor of your bedroom.


    Promising review: "The quality of the product is excellent. I like the plain explanations on the instructions, and the box contains everything you'll need to get this thing hung, whether you have a GFCI or a regular duplex outlet. I put this in my bathroom to get a Play 1 off the counter. It is the perfect size, shape, and color for this application." —J.Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    9. A wall-mountable catchall can fit in any tight space without looking sloppy.

    Fruit Super

    Get it from Fruit Super for $32.

    10. An "upright bookmark" to turn any stray coffee-table book or magazine into a centerpiece.

    Sight Unseen

    Get it from Sight Unseen for $39.

    11. A two-tier storage shelf that'll teach you to stop cutting corners and use your kitchen corners.


    Promising review: "I have a relatively small sink for everything I needed to fit on it. This was a perfect solution, and it fits nicely in the bathroom. It was easy to build, and holds a lot of stuff!" —Sam Poll

    Get it from Amazon for $19.

    12. A pack of Q-hooks — a reimagining of the classic S-hook — to make the inside of your closets look nice and tidy and actually stay put on the rod when you go to grab a shirt.

    Patrik Lindell / Via

    Get it from Nak Nak for $18 (for a set of three).

    13. A wine glass rail if you'd like to make use of the undersides of your cabinets instead of, you know, the insides.

    Promising review: "I have two cabinets, side-by-side, and installed one rail on either side to make the install symmetrical. It was perfect. The company supplies a number of different sized fasteners to install almost anywhere." —Jim M.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.87.

    14. An LED showerhead attachment that'll change colors with the temperature of the water so you never have to chance jumping into an ice-cold (or scalding hot) stream of water.

    Promising review: "This showerhead is fantastic. My other showerhead was very noisy and the water flow/coverage was not that great. The main problem was that you had to reach into the shower to see if the water was warm enough to get into the shower, plus it took a one-minute minimum to warm up to a comfortable temperature. This new head allows us to see when the water is cold, warm, and hot, it allows us to set a temp that we like visually (color of blue, green, red depict three temp ranges), has versatile spray selections although we basically use just the rain shower setting. Also, a giant plus is how fast the shower warms up to temperature now; I'm guessing this benefit is because the better water flow allows the hot water to reach the head faster. Anyway, this is a perfect addition, is not a gimmick, and the product is attractive and appears to be well built." —V. Henry

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    15. And a motion-sensor LED toilet light if you're looking for an alternative to a boring night-light (or just something that'll turn your butt purple).,

    Promising review: "This is the coolest night-light! Every person in our family loves it, from my 2-year-old to my 33-year-old husband! Our bathroom is large and there are no outlets near the toilet, so our children got scared to use the bathroom at night. Now, they are super excited to use the bathroom and love that it turns on as soon as they reach the hallway. It's very slim, not bulky at all, and totally not an eyesore. My nieces thought it was a cleaner and were excited to find it was a light (with colors!). I also have to note that the company has AMAZING customer service. Not only did they respond to my emails, but they did so within five minutes and during the weekend. I wish more companies had this kind of service!" —Victorialemieux

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    16. A countertop drying rack for a houseplant you definitely can't kill.


    Promising review: "Purchased this drying rack because the 'towel on the counter' method was taking up too much space and drying took forever. This is now easily one of my favorite purchases as a mom! The rack is cute, well-designed, and saves so much space on the counter. Because you can place items on the branches and on the bottom, the amount of bottle parts, pacifiers, and teethers you can fit on this rack is nothing short of impressive." —KJPetersen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.36.

    17. A window-mounted cat bed to support up to 50 pounds of feline weight — sounds like a major upgrade to your kitty corner if you ask me.

    Promising review: "It's been nine months and Tucker still loves this bed 10 times more than anything else I've bought him. He sleeps in it any time he's not sleeping with me... it's his main 'place' in the house. Several friends have bought it upon my recommendation and their cats love the sunny seat just as much." —Jen B

    Get it from Amazon for $19.55.

    18. An optical-illusion placemat that'll make your guests think their plate is sinking into the table.

    MoMA Design Store

    Get it from the MoMA Design Store for $14.95.

    19. A mirrored storage cabinet that'll attach onto your door hinges, giving you a full-length mirror with the space of five standard medicine cabinets.


    Promising review: "Solved my bathroom storage problem! At my new rental, I am not allowed to drill into any of my bathroom walls (apparently they're filled with piping). So that meant no medicine cabinet, and there's a window right above the toilet, so an over-the-toilet solution was a no-go, too. Besides both of those issues, my bathroom is TINY, with little room for any regular cabinet anyway. I installed the Cabidor in one evening on my own, with the hardest part literally being unpacking it (packed to survive the apocalypse!). I was worried I'd have to completely remove my regular door, but it's way simpler than that!" —D. Gualda

    Get it from Amazon for $209.99.

    20. Or, an over-the-door closet rod to take full advantage of your door's vertical storage space.


    Promising review: "These are great if you need extra closet space, for hanging clothes you are organizing to pack for a trip, or to hang things after ironing. As others have stated, my door is too close to the wall to hang it on the back side, but if you have a room where you don't care if people see the clothes, they certainly give you additional hanging space!" —jannymarie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

    21. A pair of genius pull strings so you'll never be confused about whether the string you're tugging at controls the fan or the light.

    Promising review: "Love these pulls! I accidentally purchased a ceiling fan that did not have a remote. It was hung in my guest room. Everyone, including myself, had difficulty distinguishing the fan chain from the light chain. With these pulls, the guess is over. They are super cute and extremely practical. They are priced well, too! A must have!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.33+ (available in nickel and bronze).

    22. A shower curtain liner with pockets, because who are you kidding? Every inch of storage space matters in your very small bathroom.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect solution for my tub/shower situation. We have no shelving, and showerhead racks tend to get rusty/caked with soap and have even fallen off. We've had this in the shower for three months now and it's great. It holds all our bottles, razors, and bars of soap." —Rachel B

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    23. A bed for your sponge, because even sponges should have good overnight back support.


    Promising review: "If Ratatouille breaks into my house and starts cooking wonderful meals, he'll now have a place to rest." —Reginald Superior

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

    24. A magnetic key rack you can attach to your light switch — a great space-saving move if you don't want to commit to mounting a new rack.


    Promising review: "It is the most minimalistic way of hanging your keys. With nothing sticking to it, you won't notice its presence. The magnet seems strong even given the small size. It is able to hang a bunch of keys without problem." —Heidi7

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.
