4. Fake Linen Closet
No linen closet? No problem. You can make one with a few linen baskets. With 4-6 square or rectangular baskets, connect them with your wall in a stacking fashion. These can be attached with nails, command strips, or anything else that will be stable. You can fill these baskets with folded towels and robes to put them on display.
5. Magnetic Knife Holder
