    1. A rose gold grid panel that can hold plants, cups, and kitchen tools as well as neatly clip lose papers you might have strewn about.


    Promising review: "This is an adorable, well made shelf. It fits my art supplies and knickknacks perfectly. I am incredibly pleased with the aesthetic of the item and it inspired an entirely new theme for my room." —Fox V.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    2. A wine shelf for keeping your good glasses safely stored and your best bottles on display.

    Crate & Barrel

    Get it from Crate & Barrel for $49.95 or a rustic wood version from Amazon for $59.99.

    3. A set of Matryoshka measuring cups — they're gonna nestle into a small corner and take up hardly any space, even if you insist on keeping them on display 24/7.


    Promising review: "I adore unique items for my kitchen, especially when they are cute and save space at the same time! These measuring cups are wonderful. I always keep them nested on my counter top next to my flour/sugar canisters. They work very well, are well made, easy to clean, and unlike many cheap measuring cups where the measurement starts to come off after many uses/washes, there is nothing printed on these. It's all etched into the plastic. I've gotten lots of comments on them. These are a great gift!" —Kate Mahoney

    Get them from Amazon for $14.26.

    4. A rotating utensil holder — a useful way to ~spin~ your storage in the best direction.


    Promising review: "This is a very convenient and nice looking utensil holder. When I first got it I didn't really think it looked like anything too special, but once I started to use it I was impressed. It is heavier than I imagined it would be, which reflects the quality of it. It has little compartments inside that allow you to separate your utensils so that don't lean to one side. It has little divots in the bottom to catch the utensils and prevent things from sliding around. The fact that it spins seems like a cool little added feature, but it is actually much more convenient than I could have imagined. It doesn't take up much counter space and it is pretty enough to sit on the counter without being an eyesore." —Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $19.19.

    5. A thin shelving system that'll solve all the vintage-sink-means-no-counter conundrums in any historic home.


    Promising review: "This is a perfect storage piece if you have a small bathroom. Assembly was easy. It looks nice and I was surprised that I could really store more than just toilet paper, plus the added top shelf area helps too because it gives you a little extra place to set items other than just the bathroom sink top. I'm happy with my purchase." —Donna Theobald

    Get it from Amazon for $94.99.

    6. A makeup organizer you can get to help ~makeup~ with your boo after taking up their side of the sink for the last...several years.


    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    7. A brilliant over-the-sink cutting board for any chef who doesn't have the space to prep food fancier than instant macaroni.


    Promising review: "This is exactly what I hoped it would be. My kitchen sink does not have any counter space next to the side with the garbage disposal. I was constantly transferring peelings from one area to another with predictable messes and drops on the way to the disposal. However now, with this simple but great device, I can sweep whatever directly into the disposal. The colander is on the smallish side but adequate, the cutting board area is stable, and the extender arms hold it securely. And the whole thing can go into the dishwasher. I leave it out because I use it every day and I definitely recommend it." —PAE

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    8. A pack of eco-friendly hair, face, or body bars so you can enjoy your shower without bottles taking up all your space.


    Promising review: "I love that this is a sample pack because I’m the kind of customer who doesn’t like to buy things if I don’t know I’m going to like them. My family and I have been testing these out for almost a month now I love them. I found them really easy to use, I had to show my kids how to use them and they were able to do it on their own. I love there are no plastic bottles because they don't take up much space and I love how my hair feels! I highly recommend this sample pack!" —Ashley

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three styles).

    9. A razor holder that'll obviously be so convenient I ~mustache~ myself, why didn't I get this sooner?

    Animi Causa

    Get it from Animi Causa for $16.99.

    10. Or a Billie Razor so you can drop the pink tax and pick your razor up off the bathroom counter (and attach it to a specially designed holder instead).


    The starter kit includes the razor handle, two blade cartridges, and a magnetic wall holder. Each razor cartridge has five blades encased in charcoal shave soap. Check out our full Billie razor review to hear all about this dreamy shaving system.

    Get it from Billie for $9.

    11. A magnetic refrigerator organizer that's gonna stick to your fridge and store your kitchen favorites — just scooch over all those travel magnets to make some room.


    Promising review: "I put this on the refrigerator and I have the spices on it that I use the most. There is a towel bar on the bottom so I can wipe my hands before going into the refrigerator. I love it." —Karen Clarke

    Get it from Amazon for $77.99+ (available in two styles).

    12. A coffee mug holder that'll slide underneath a shelf, freeing your cabinets from bulky mugs and giving them space to store anything that's been calling your countertop home for far too long.


    Promising review: "This is a great space saver. I bought one for hanging coffee cups in a tight space and the other I am using to hang my scarves — works perfectly." —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    13. A swivel knife block/cookbook stand for when you can't ~stand~ trying to find space for your recipe book any longer.

    Food 52

    14. A magnetic tool set so your garage stays organized and your shop doesn't end up looking like a ~tool~ uses it.


    Promising review: "After years of using a knife block we decided to free up some counter space and install this magnetic strip for our knives. It was easy to install, the magnet is very strong, and we now have extra space on our kitchen counter. Win, win, win." —A. Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    15. A slide-out storage tower you can hide in any tight crevice to give yourself some serious storage space.


    Promising review: "I don't know how we lived without this thing. I live in an older home with absolutely no storage in the kitchen and I was amazed how much this holds." —K. Johnsen

    Get it from Amazon for $31.56.

    16. A darling makeup case so *cute* you'll wanna keep it out forever, but so good at *storage* you'll actually be able to make room for it on the counter.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "It’s a lot smaller than I thought but super cute and it fits my everyday stuff perfectly." —Saffa

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10 (available in three colors).

    17. A suction cup soap and sponge holder for a charming way to keep your sink free of extra things.

    19. Or a toothpaste and toothbrush set that'll let you keep the brushes you have safe, clean, and off the counter while also making sure your children never waste toothpaste again.


    Promising review: "This has been a great purchase. I installed it in the shower, which was very easy to do. The sticky sides are made well. I had no problem applying them and nothing is falling off. The toothpaste dispenser is like magic — you put the tube in, put your toothbrush under and push against it, and you get a nice portion of toothpaste. I really like this and I’m probably going to buy another one for the other bathroom." —J.D.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.16+ (available in three sizes).

    20. A magnetic knife set — it'll be like a rainbow over (and not on) your kitchen counter.


    This set comes with a magnetic strip and sharpener, and a cheese, pizza, paring, utility, slicer, bread, and chef knife.

    Promising review: "When I saw this set I was speechless. It is beautiful. It also comes in a wonderful box. I love the beautiful colors and that each knife has what it's for written on it. This would be a great wedding gift or for someone learning to cook...any gift really! I was so impressed with this set and the quality of the knives. My only regret is that I didn't buy a few more to keep around for gifts. They are very sharp. I would not hesitate to buy these again." —meg_73

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    21. A honeycomb wine holder people are gonna be ~buzzing~ about when they see how beautifully it stores the drinks that get them buzzed.


    Get it from Amazon for $42.99.

    22. An eight-tier wall and door rack for anyone who has been wracking their brain over how to store their food without a pantry.


    Promising review: "This thing is freaking awesome! It is so sturdy and can hold some really heavy stuff! I used the door hooks to hang it on the back of a door. A single person can assemble and mount this easily. I didn't end up using all of the shelves since some of the items I need to store are large and heavy — I liked having the option of leaving them out and just using as many as I needed. This is a great product and I will buy it again for other closets and storage areas." —Chimera

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two heights).

    23. A simply lovely hook shelf that'll give your kitchen an open and airy appearance while also giving your counter space the luxury of finally being clean and open.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59, or get a similar one from Amazon for $29.99.

    24. A toilet-framing shelf so your lack of counter space won't have you down in the ~dumps~.


    Promising review: "I love it! For a couple of years I've been looking for a storage solution for my son's bathroom. These shelves are a great alternative to drilling holes in the bathroom tile. This is a wonderful price and quality." —Y. Coop

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

    25. A microwave cart may add just a small amount of counter space, but it's sure to make a big difference.


    Get it from Amazon for $44.49.

    26. A sponge, soap, and scrubber holder for making sure the tools that keep your dishes clean won't make your counters dirty.


    Promising review: "It may sound silly that something this small and simple should make me so happy but it does, every day, and many times a day. I was so sick and tired of those dumb suction cups always giving way and things dropping into the sink. This basket is PERFECT!! It's out of the way and leaves plenty of room for working in the sink. It has plenty of room for sponge, sink stopper, and scrub and nail brushes, with room to spare." —Raina

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    27. A waterproof storage pouch to hang on the wall of your kitchen, bathroom, or workshop and store everything from paint brushes to toothbrushes, all while giving you the extra space you need to actually prepare a project.


    Promising review: "Great for small items you want to organize out of the way in a small space. It has nice neutral colors that will match most decors. It's perfect for getting all my bottles and tubes of makeup off my bathroom vanity while still making them easy to grab." —jenishops

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four colors).

    28. A copper utensil holder that'll keep your utensils in place and have your kitchen looking golden.


    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    29. And finally, an over-the-sink dish drying rack because losing all that counter space to drying dishes can be a real ~drip~.


    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to assemble this rack. It's not flimsy. The quality is very sturdy. It fits over my large sink and is adjustable so I'm assuming it can fit most sinks. It's got a lot of holders in various sizes so can fit a lot of items like sponges and liquid dish soap bottles. I love how it stores all my go-to sink and dish washing items in one place. It makes my kitchen look much more organized and neat." —Moonray

    Get it from Amazon for $170 (available in two colors).
