The easiest way to make more room in your closet is to first, get rid of everything you don’t wear. Use some of these tips to figure out what you really need.
Use empty wall space
Instead of hanging up your scarves, belts and any other accessories on hangers, hang up towel rods and string your items across the rod.
Use a shoe organizer to hang shoes on the back of your door. Also, consider getting a boot organizer if you have a lot of boots, to get them off the floor and stacked on top of each other to minimize space.
Get rid of your old plastic hangers and buy nice wooden or padded hangers. Your clothes deserve the best and will be less likely to rip on better hangers.
Organize your clothing items by the season you wear them in. Move clothes for the off season to the back of your closet and rotate clothes for the current season to the front.
Store your most used items at eye-level for easy access. Store items you don’t use as often up on shelves.
Color coding your items makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
Add portable drawers underneath your closet rod where all your clothes hang to increase space to store items.
Hang a hat rack over the front of your closet door so your hats are on display. You will have easy access to it and it won’t take up any space in your closet.
