One way we have found to maximize our space is by using hooks. Such a simple solution, yet so very helpful. We have them everywhere.
Some of my favorite hook placements are:
To hang a mobile above our son's crib.
To hang a sweet nest in our daughter's room.
To hang a fern in our kitchen.
To hold our pot holders.
For coffee mugs and tea cups.
To save a bit of counter space and hold our bananas.
To hold our scrub brush and allow it to drip dry.
To have a towel at a reachable level for our kids in the bathroom.
And when it is not scorching hot, I love to hang a flowering plant out front!
We also have a hook on our deck to attach a clothesline to a tree.
We have many hooks in our basement to hang clothes and also hang tools.
We are so thankful for how cheap and easy to implement hooks are! What a space saver!
