5 Functional Ways To Maximize Your Closet Space


The complaints of most people I've consulted with especially those who live in small apartments or have little wardrobe space in their rooms has always been lack of adequate closet space.

If you’re not privileged to have a huge walk-in closet with enough space to accommodate your massive shoe collection and designer clothes, then you might need to maximize your closet space regardless of how small it is.

So, here are 5 practical and functional ways to maximize your closet space:



De-clutter Your Closet.


Your problem may not be the space of your wardrobe, the problem may be you have too much stuffs, especially if you’re constantly adding to your wardrobe, but never getting rid of older items. So, de-clutter your closet by removing all items from your wardrobe and separating your clothing items into different piles. Think of having a single pile for jeans, tees, sweaters, shirts, dresses, or separate clothes by season.

It's also necessary for you to scan through each pile of clothes to determine what you can give away. If there’s an item that you haven’t worn or used in one or two years, give it away. Remember, the less you own, the more space you’ll have in your closet.

Create Spaces For Hanging In Your Closet.


Think of installing two rods one above the other rather than have a single rod extending the entire length of your closet. Most items fold on a hanger, so opt for double hangers that can maximize your closet space and letting you store more items inside. Just keep a single rod hanger in a small section of your closet to accommodate longer items, such as dresses and robes.



Add Storage Shelves.


Wasted space can contribute to your closet dilemma. Generally, closets have an 8-foot ceiling but you might have about 2 feet of usable space above the highest hanging rod. So, build a shelf above the hanging rod to create additional space to store other items like duvet, bed sheets, winter clothes, or out of season clothes. Just take advantage of any other usable wall space inside your closet and build from there.

Stack Your Shoes In The Right Places.


Shoes can take up a lot of space inside a closet, especially if they’re kept on the floor. So, remove shoes from the floor and sort them in a shoe rack or box. For any remaining shoes, hang them in a shoe organizer at the back of your closet door to maximize your closet space.

Put Your Suitcases To Use.


If you keep suitcases or other travel bags inside your closet, take advantage of the empty space to store some of your clothes. Rather than keep those out of season items hanging in your closet or folded on shelves, neatly store them inside the suitcase to create additional space for your immediate ensembles.

By heeding these practical, inexpensive tips, you'll be able to maximize your closet space effortlessly while still giving your wardrobe a functional fit. Let your friends also benefit in this post by sharing to all your social media platforms. Stay inspired!
