There’s an inner OCD in all of us, no matter how messy we are. The sight of a perfectly organised pantry; or a colour-coordinated wardrobe leaves us feeling absolutely complete. But actually being organised? Not so easy - there's the chore of decluttering; then finding the right storage solutions that won't take up more space (or cramp your style).
Which means you haven't seen these babies yet! Stylish, space-saving and (best of all) under $50, you’d be hard pressed not to turn into a full-fledged neat freak with these too-good-to-be-true storage buys.
For the Doorway:
Easily mounted onto any wall, this sleek, minimalist steel shelf – great for holding onto letters and knick-knacks - doubles as a nifty magnetic key holder.
Turn on the charm by literally begging your guests to stay with this eye-catching wall-décor piece. Made of bent metal, curved up edges serve as useful hooks for holding keys, scarves and pocket umbrellas.
Turn that eyesore into an asset; if you’ve got ugly electrical boxes or switches to hide, consider hitching up this pegboard shadowbox to keep prying eyes away. Totally modular, users can add knobs and shelves to make it a unique storage/display piece!
For the Living Room:
Bringing the best of both worlds, this slanted shelving piece includes knobs for convenient hooking – and works as a cute wall feature as well.
This is one classy end-table that packs a punch. Slim and easily stowed into tight corners, the mesh-wired piece also includes a magazine holder compartment and a top shelf you can use to conveniently place your cuppa while chilling out on the sofa.
Honeycomb, hexagonal shapes are all the rage now – and just like Lego blocks, these multi-purpose honeycomb planters/storage cubbies can be mixed and matched to create a stunning wall-scape.
Often overlooked, your wall corners serve as perfect spots for squeezing in a little more storage (without taking up much square footage). Maximise your limited area with this corner standing display rack – set in a stylish mint green.
If your home is slowly becoming a cluttered, second-hand bookshop, organize those tomes and stack them up like an avant-garde piece of wall art – with a conceal wall-mounted book ledge!
For the Kitchen:
A place for everything, and everything in its place – easily customizable, this drawer organizer includes detachable knobs that users can tweak according to their utensils’ size – for the perfect fit.
Low on countertop space? Free up from bulky knife and utensil racks, and go for this clean magnetic strip mounted up on your wall instead.
Every space counts – utilize those small gaps lying around corners with an ultra-slim kitchen trolley, which measures just 16cm in diameter. You’d be surprised how much items can be squeezed in just that small area alone – canned drinks, cleaning products, spices and even fresh foods.
All is not lost – even if you’ve maxed out on valuable shelf space. This under-shelf system can be hitched onto any shelving plank for extra storage space! The unit even comes with a pole and hooks for hanging your daily essentials, like rag cloths or brushes.
For the Bedroom:
Get a mirror that looks good and makes you look even better. Set in a classy, brass finish, this semi-circle mirror’s other half is actually a convenient holder for your jewelry.
No more rolled up belts, scarves or ties that always unwind themselves. Set in a stylish rose-gold finish, this triangular hanger comes with 15 mini-triangles that could hold them all with ease.
Love doing everything on the bed? You’ll love this – forego the side tables for a caddy which can be attached onto the sides of your bed. So, whenever you’re dozing off to sleep, putting away your remote, phone, spectacles and iPad is just within arm’s reach.
Alas, where has this been all along? With an ingenious S-shaped design, this hanger can carry up to 5 pieces of clothing at once. The next best thing besides purging clothes from a bursting closet.
Great as a drying rack or décor piece, this slim clothes ladder can be effortlessly placed against a wall for that rustic, nonchalant look.
For the Bathroom:
3M’s clear, waterproof acrylic version is ideal for bathrooms. Users can stick them on cabinets, walls, tiles and metals – and it can be easily removed with just a pull of the tab.
A godsend for domestic goddesses everywhere, this multi-purpose rack is useful in both the kitchen and bathroom. There’s a ledge to place your cleaning essentials, hooks to hang face towels, and a circular pole to stock up on a couple rolls of toilet paper! Nifty.
For the Study:
There’s more to this bookend than keeping your folders and books upright. Small ledges at the sides transform the otherwise not-so-useful item into a holder for your pens and accessories.
This monitor riser is a one-stop storage/organization system – complete with carved in holes for your mug, stationery, and iPhone. It’s U-shaped design also means you can stow away your keyboard and mouse underneath for a clean and uncluttered desk!
We love pegboards – and for good reason. They can be modified to any combination possible based on your needs and items! Create your own study dashboard using a couple of knobs and shelves on this capacious piece.
For the Garden:
Likewise, this boxy planter doesn’t necessarily need to be used for propping up your plants. It’s spacious confines and bottom shelves make it a versatile addition for keeping toys, blanket or other household items away.
Available in a variety of bold hues, get two times the potting space with this standing planter. Or, you can place those leafy greens on the top bunk and keep your gardening tools out of sight and mind below.
