You've got great stuff, but you've got a lot of it. When your space is cramped and cluttered, even the most amazing and beautiful things can look like a total mess. But, it would be a shame to hide all of your amazing stuff away in a closet. Here, seven storage solutions that let you show off your belongings while keeping them tidy and orderly.

1. Urban Outfitters Leaning Clothing Rack, $69

A carefully chosen selection of clothing on a clothing rack adds color to a room and makes it seem like you're one of those people who is actually capable of having a capsule wardrobe.

2. Bunkhouse and Broadway Diamond Book Shelf, $114

No matter what you put on this wood and metal shelf — be it books, plates, or anything in between — their beauty will add character to the room.

3. Pottery Barn Kids Angled Bookcase, $269

Of course, you should teach your children to put their toys away, but when the toys are super cute, leaving them on display is good for everyone. (Plus that shelf is totally adaptable once your little one gets older.)

4. Anthropologie Hanging Jewelry Organizer, $42

Just because you're not wearing your jewelry doesn't mean you can't show it off, right?

5. Target Rattan Basket, $34.99

This rattan basket is perfect for putting away the items you have to put somewhere but don't want to — think bulky blankets.

6. West Elm Wire Mesh Hanging Double Shelf, $99

This mesh double cubby brings new meaning to open shelving. Show off your stuff, show off the shelf, show off your wall. Just show off.

7. Joss & Main Kitchen Cart With Wood Top, $183.68

Small kitchen? You can still make it look great — and increase storage — with a kitchen cart that elegantly displays all your best glassware and goods.
