If you live in a teeny tiny apartment, it's obviously critical to make the most of every square foot you have available. Even if you're in a larger home, decluttering and smart space optimization can make a huge difference. Here are the 24 top-rated products we found that have helped thousands of people free up space in their homes.


1. Replace your bulky knife block with this magnetic strip

Average rating: 4.9/5 stars (90+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This is a first-class product. It is very easy to install (the directions are superb). It is beautifully made and very sturdy. It looks extremely attractive: sleek and cool and unobtrusive. It holds my heavy Henckels knives very strongly. Would recommend to anyone."


2. Combine 18 tools into 1 with this credit card sized pocket tool

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (680+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "Many envelopes were opened, bottlecaps popped and bolts turned. Strong and sturdy construction with a good weight. It is the size of a credit card and fits perfectly in my wallet."


3. Save space on your coffee table (and never lose the remote again) with this armrest organizer

Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (75+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I have this hanging on the side of my ottoman in front of my love seat and it is perfect for holding the tv remote control, a TV guide, a pair of glasses, a pad and pen, and in the larger pocket, my iPad and Kindle."


4. Get a full workout in your living room with these 15-in-1 dumbbells

Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (3,300+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I expected a lot from these and they're exceeding expectations. They're nicely designed and well-manufactured. The weight-changing mechanism is clever and not overly-complicated. I work out at home and don't have space for many pairs of dumbbells. The ability to quickly switch between light and heavy weights is allowing me to do a lot of exercises that I haven't been able to do before with my one pair of heavy dumbbells."


5. Limited counter space? Use this over-the-sink cutting board

Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (75+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This is a lifesaver for me. I have a single sink so am usually washing & cutting vegetables right next to it. But the counter space I have next to the sink is limited & often as I'm dicing, things roll off the board & into the sink - this is especially true of carrots. So my solution is to just lay this board across the sink. That way, I can still chop on my counter (which is closer to the stove if I'm cooking) but have the veggies placed on the Over the Sink board."


6. Give yourself extra counter space with this over-the-stove countertop

Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (220+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This makes a quick and easy extra bit of counter space over two of my stove burners. It cleans up easily. And it fits in my cabinets for storage when I need all four burners. Like it a lot."


7. Use every inch of your fridge space with these bottle magnets

Average rating: 4.2/5 stars (25+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "Awesome product. Even better in person than photo. The wow factor is well worth the cost."


8. Speaking of magnets, this magnetic ironing pad eliminates the need for an ironing board

Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (250+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I wanted something to iron my clothes on without having to purchase and store a large ironing board. This was the perfect solution! It attaches magnetically to the top of the washing machine, and is a standard heat resistant quilted surface that is specifically made to iron on. Magnets keep it perfectly in place while you do your work, and I don't worry about scorching it since it is heat resistant. Highly recommend as a replacement to a large ironing board."


9. Throw out your bulky drying rack and replace it with this roll-up drying rack

Average rating: 4.9/5 stars (860+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "The drying rack has made my life so much easier in my kitchen. It's like having an extra counter top or space. I don't have to dry my dishes on the counter on a towel I can just lay them on the drying rack and be done."


10. This collapsible laundry basket is simple to store when not in use

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (85+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I love this laundry basket. I really thought it would collapsed as soon as I put something in it, but it is very sturdy when opened and closes easily for storage. Works great in my small laundry area where I don't have a lot of storage space."


11. Add extra storage in your bathroom with this pocketed shower curtain

Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (610+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This is the perfect solution for my tub/shower situation. We have no shelving and showerhead racks tend to get rusty/caked with soap and have even fallen off. We've had this in the shower for 3 months now and it's great. It holds all our bottles, razors, and bars of soap."


12. Keep the good times flowing with this ultra slim wine bottle holder

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (65+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "Works great, love the look, the functionality, and the space savings compared to many wine bottle holders."


13. Hide your long, unsightly cables and prevent tangling with this cable manager

Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (25+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This was the best cable management I have purchased. I have purchased several and this one keeps the cords truly wrapped and the magnet is strong enough to keep the buds or end of cord attached. The product is quality material and not bulky. I purchased 2 one for my laptop cord and one for my earbuds. I have recommended this to my friends and family. I will buy more in the future."


14. Fit more towels in a small bathroom with this swivel towel rack

Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (525+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This rack arrived quickly and was easy to install. Looks beautiful. I have a very small bathroom with no room for a regular towel rack. This is the perfect solution. Already received compliments from guests."


15. This drop-leaf dining table is a must for any tiny living room

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (160+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This table is great! I had wanted to get one similar to this, but it was over a thousand bucks. This one is pretty close to what I wanted, and for $50, I can't believe how much money I saved! It's a great space-saver, and it looks pretty. Definitely a great investment."


16. Get the most storage in every nook and cranny with a corner shelf

Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (700+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I bought 3 of these to install in the shower because we have no sort of storage in our bathroom and it was driving me nuts. It took me about 20 minutes to install all 3 shelves. I'm very happy with them!"


17. Replace your big blender with this compact personal blender

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (650+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "For such a small blender it's powerful. It has had no problem powering through frozen fruit and veggies for my smoothies 1 to 3 times a day! I purchased it because of the price, but the quality has been wonderful. The take along bottle is also good, I like how sleek it is, and the top is really cool looking."


18. And this compact space heater can replace your bulky one

Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (315+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This is a really nice little heater. It is reasonably quiet and puts out a healthy blast of heat. It's compact size allows it to be placed anywhere and it has very solid construction. I normally only need the 600 watt setting. The 1200 watt setting does a good job at taking the chill off my 10x10 bedroom."


19. This dining table + ottoman set has tons of storage and takes up minimal space

Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (6+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This dining set is perfect for my small space. It was relatively easy to put together and the quality was decent for the price. It really ties my kitchen together to make it look cohesive and classy."


20. This beautiful ottoman can store up to 6 pairs of shoes

Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (60+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I am so loving my shoes ottoman. I purchased two because I live in an apartment and needed extra storage for my shoes. Everyone who saw them wanted to know where I bought them."


21. Or opt to save floor space with this sleek wall-mounted shoe rack

Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (40+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "These modern and minimalist shoe racks are perfect for creating an entryway where there is no entryway, in our small 1920s home. They are well made and do the job of keeping dusting shoes off the floor."


22. Free up some cupboard space with a collapsible salad spinner

Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (330+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I really like this salad spinner, it works great, dries as well as a full size but collapses. It saves a couple inches of storage space, which I never have enough of."


23. And while you're at it, these nesting utensils are a must-have (also available in grey

Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (55+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "This is great - it looks good on the counter, doesn't take up much space, and let me get rid of a bunch of utensils that were cluttering up a drawer. I live in a small house without much kitchen drawer space, so a solution that can live neatly and compactly on the counter or on a shelf is ideal."


24. And finally, replace your big strainer with this clip-on strainer (works with all pot sizes)

clip on strainer

Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (780+ reviews)

Reviewers say: "I've cooked a million meals, easily, over my lifetime, often for extra people helping us out on our farms. I am not a fancy cook, but a cook out of necessity. How I wish I had had this little gizmo long ago! If you have any hesitation, thinking that maybe it won't hold properly or fit properly, let me assure you it does. When in a hurry to fix a quick dish, every little time-saver (and sink/mess/big strainer in your already full sink while cooking) this is a very appreciated kitchen addition."
