Closet space can be a hot commodity these days, especially if you live in a city where closet space isn't always available. So, you do what you can with the space that you do have (which usually means you're unabashedly sizing up friends' tiny closets for space-saving tips.) But once you've found the genius closet hacks that'll make organizing your clothes and accessories easy, you might just find you're working with more space than you realized — though, likely still not as much space as Cher from Clueless.
With a few simple fixes and a bit of time, you can make your comically tiny, little closet seem huge. All it takes is some space-saving hacks and the right products for organizing your closet. Outfit your wardrobe with hangers that take up half the space of a normal-sized one, or add a clothing rod to your closet to make it into a two-level one that doubles your hanging space. Expand shelf space with detachable containers, or even add hooks to organize accessories to make a huge, significantly more helpful difference.
Make your closet your happy place and maximize the space, so you don’t have to give up your shopping habit. Just because you don’t have a walk-in closet doesn’t mean you have to start selling your thirty pairs of shoes, right?
Create More Shelf Space
Shelf space is so important when you don't have a lot of storage, as it's your foundation for making the best out of whatever space you do have. A lot of closets have wire shelving, and you can take advantage of that by using compact plastic storage bins with hooks that maximize your shelf space. You can neatly store clothing, similar shirts, workout clothes, pajamas, or even shoes! The shelves come in many different sizes, so you'll be sure to find some that fit in your space.
Double Your Closet Size By Building Up
If you have a closet with a really high rod installed in it, you are so lucky. You can easily double your closet space with this closet rod. It seamlessly attaches to your current rod, optimizing your hanging space. Now, you can hang shirts on the top rod, and pants and skirts on the bottom one. You can even get creative and hang this in an unused space in your apartment by attaching hooks to the ceiling and hanging the rod from the hooks. Organization is fun, isn't it?
