Space-Saving Tips for a Small Closet

Space-Saving Tips for a Small Closet

February 9, 2021

Many of us dream of one day owning a home with a palatial walk-in closet to stow our belongings. Unfortunately, not everyone has the room to display their clothing and accessories as they might wish. If you can’t spare the space for a closet with jewelry stands and lounging sofas, consider giving your smaller closet a much-needed makeover. Here are some of Closet World’s top space-saving tips for expert closet organizing:

Add Another Clothing Rod

Dealing with an unhelpfully small closet? If your closet is cramped, an extra clothing rod might be the ideal solution to your storage concerns. All you have to do is install a second rod above or below the one already present. We recommend using the top rod for skirts and pants -- just fold them over the hanger -- because they usually don’t hang as low as shirts or dresses. With a little careful closet organizing, you’ll effectively double the space available for storing clothes and accessories while making it easier to find the pieces you need.

Choose a Hidden Hamper

Is floor space at a premium in your small closet? Whether you have a cramped walk-in or a narrow reach-in, you might have only minimal space for laundry. Solve this problem by installing a built-in hamper for dirty clothes. As a bonus, putting in an easy-to-access hamper means you’ll be less likely to leave dirty clothes on the floor. If you don’t have cabinet space for a hidden hamper, think about hanging a laundry bag on the back of your closet door. This option is particularly useful if you have kids, as it serves as a useful reminder for them to put their clothes in the laundry when they leave.

Utilize Your Vertical Space

Suffering from a lack of accessory space? If your closet is on the narrow side, you might be struggling to store your jewelry and bags. Luckily, you don’t have to knock out a wall to improve your closet organizing options. If you want to show off your accessories to their best advantage, start by making better use of your vertical space. Wall hooks are a great option for showcasing hats, necklaces, scarves, and purses. You can also put up a shelf or shoe organizer to display all your best heels and sandals. (Tall boots might have to go in boxes or plastic tubs under the bed.) Consider keeping a step-stool nearby so you don’t have to find a taller family member every time you want to get something down from a high shelf!
