Hanging wooden crates for storage (shoes gloves hats next to front door)--good for garage or mud room. Change it up to colorful milk crates and it could make useful toy storage for the kids room!
kitchen utensil storage - not on the counter, or crammed in a drawer. I like the easy accessibility of magnetic knife racks - this seems the same. Magnetic knife rack would be genius
