6 hanging storage ideas to keep your home tidy

1. Hang your shoes

Rather than having a pile of shoes scattered all over the floor, try installing a hanging shoe rack on the back of the door or a nearby section of wall. You can buy shoe racks that hang from the top of the door, which make installation easy.

2. Hanging storage baskets

Sometimes you just need a way to quickly tidy up a room. Hanging storage baskets attached to the walls provides a place to store miscellaneous items. Fabric storage baskets create a colourful, casual look, or you can use wicker baskets for a sturdier solution.

3. Closet alternatives

Even if you don't have a wardrobe in your bedroom, you can still hang up your clothes to keep them crease-free and beautiful. Install a hanging rail to hold your shirts or dresses, and then add a set of hanging shelves for your other clothes. If you don't want your wardrobe on display, hang up a curtain in front of the rail to obscure your clothes from view.

4. Use cupboard doors

If you live in a small home, such as a city apartment, then you need to make the most of every bit of storage space. Attach hanging storage racks to the doors of all cupboards and cabinets to create a space for small items that would otherwise fill up the drawers. For example, rather than using up an entire drawer for cutlery, try putting it in storage pots that hang from the door of a kitchen cabinet.

5. Pots and pans

A hanging rack of pots and pans in the kitchen not only frees up cabinet space, but it also gives the kitchen a rustic farmhouse appeal. Install a series of hooks on a kitchen wall so that you can hang up your pans and utensils when they're not in use instead of hiding them away in cupboards.

6. Hang your bike

Even modes of transport are easy to hang. You can create a hanging rack for your bicycle out of a simple piece of wood. You can also combine the hanging rack with a bookshelf to give yourself even more storage space.

These six ideas will give you a great head start in creating more space in your home or apartment.
