We are constantly searching for ways to improve our homes. And we are always faced with a number of different problems that seem to have no easy solution. How do I make more space to store stuff? Where do I put these cleaning supplies? I can’t stand the sight of tangled cables everywhere! Why isn’t there a gun that shoots condiments?
Good news! The answer to these and many other similar issues has been found, courtesy of brilliant inventors and designers from all over the world. Here is how you can bring perfect order to your house and make sure everything is arranged in the most efficient way possible. These 25 ideas, compiled by Diply, will amaze you with their simplicity and ingenuity.
1. Hide yo cords, hide yo phone
Phones, chargers, and cords don’t really have to stay on top of the counter or nightstand, now do they? They are quite unsightly, so keeping them hidden is your best option. And the easiest way to that is by installing outlets at the back of your drawers!
2. Point blank range
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to shoot someone in the face with mustard? You have?! Weirdo… Anyway, now you can actually do that with this condiment gun! It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s fun, so let’s roll with that…

3. The tension is palpable
All that room in your cupboards that seemingly can’t ever be used doesn’t have to be wasted. Adding some tension rods will segment that extra space and allow you to make good use of it.

4. Out of sight, out of mind
Litter box. Inside a cupboard. With a cat flap. Now you’re talking! You may even completely forget there is a litter box in there! No, no, don’t do that, don’t forget – you still need to clean it!

5. You vs. counter clutter
Small countertop appliances are what you might call a necessary evil. They’re useful, but they take up too much space and make your countertop look messy and disorganized. So why not just stash them away in a cabinet like this?

6. That’s a tall order!
When you’re trying to reach those high shelves but you’re coming up a bit short, just use a sliding ladder. It’s useful and it looks cool – it’s got no shortcomings!
7. Just hanging
You never seem to have enough space in your bathroom. But with these shelves that hang from a towel rack you will never again wonder where to put those spare rolls of toilet paper and the extra washcloths. But you may wonder where to put your towels.

11. Under the sink
Just because you don’t have a cupboard enclosing your sink, it doesn’t mean that all that space under it is wasted. You can install a shelf under the pipes for extra towel storage space.

You can’t place a normal drawer under the sink. But you can have one that goes around the pipes. It’s the perfect place to store cleaning supplies.
13. It’s in the hole!
It’s a cutting board and it has a hole through which you can get rid of the waste super easily. Just remember to open the drawer with the bins as well…

You can get a garbage bag more easily if you take the roll out of its box and keep it on a rack, kind of like toilet paper. Keep it out of sight by placing it under the kitchen sink.
