Tebru Adjustable Bed Risers

Whether you live in a tiny apartment or a sprawling home, we all could use a bit more closet space. One clever way to make room for more storage is to outfit your bed with a set of risers. Once your bed is lifted, you can keep out-of-season clothes and extra shoes hidden underneath but not out of reach. We recommend covering up the risers with a bedskirt, and no one will be the wiser.
To buy: $35 for a 4-piece set (was $47); walmart.com

Brown four-panel room divider from Walmart photo

Oriental Furniture Room Divider

If you live in a studio apartment, you know the importance of maintaining—or often creating—personal space. A room divider not only adds a chic boho design element, but it can also cut a room in two for added privacy. And when it's not in use, you can simply fold it up and slide it away to open the room back up.

Brown wood ladder from Walmart photo

Vintage Farmhouse Ladder

It seems like every bedroom has "the chair"—you know, the place where you keep both clean and dirty clothes instead of hanging them back up or tossing them in the hamper? If your room doesn't have enough square footage for one (let alone a pile of clothes), you can use this hack for some extra storage. Propping a design-friendly ladder against a free wall will not only look chic, but also give you a place to drape blankets, t-shirts, jeans, or anything else without cluttering what space you do have.

Red and black mini vacuum from Walmart photo

Dirt Devil Power Stick Lite Vacuum

You may not have enough closet space to store a large vacuum (nor an expansive carpet to justify one), which is why this Dirt Devil vacuum is a must for small spaces. It's lightweight yet powerful, so it can clean up even yeti-level pet hair shedding. And for small messes, you can simply remove the hand vac. It's a multipurpose find—and it's only $35.

Black over the toilet bathroom shelves from Walmart photo

Zenna Home Bathroom Storage

Not many small-space dwellers have the luxury of an entire bathroom closet or even a set of built-in shelves. This over-the-toilet storage system acts as a replacement for both, as it's able to hold towels, toiletries, and other essentials right where you need them. We like this unit because it has an open shelf, as well as two cabinets to hide away not-so-pretty items.
