Sometimes—okay, most of the time—finding storage in a small space requires us to get crafty. Sure we’ve all heard of the usual small-space game changers, but what to do when there’s still not enough room for all your stuff?

Yes, mechanical… as in, storage solutions that have a moving part, and more importantly, the ability to be hidden away from plain sight when not in use. Not only does mechanical storage open up a whole new world of organizing opportunity, it allows you to make use of a previously unused space—something that’s pretty momentous when you live in a tiny place.
