30 Genius Home Storage Hacks That Will Clear Up So Much Space

Here’s how to make your space a whole lot bigger.

If each new place you move into seems like a tighter squeeze than the last, you’re not imagining things. In fact, over the past ten years, the size of a new one-bedroom apartment has shrunk 8 percent, while freshly-built studios are, on average, 18 percent smaller than they were a decade ago. Unfortunately, just because our homes are getting smaller doesn’t mean our stuff is, and for many people, downsizing to fit the needs of a place you’ll only call home for a few years doesn’t make much sense, either.

But here’s some good news: smart storage—and a little ingenuity—can go a long way when it comes to making your space seem bigger, cleaner, and better organized. We’ve rounded up 30 genius home storage hacks that will leave you wondering what to do with all that extra space. And for more great ways to spruce up your space.
