A good organization system will help you organize a small wardrobe. There are many storage options that you can use to maximize the space in a small closet.
When it comes to adding functionality to a closet, there are three main factors: utilizing the space from floor to ceiling, using organizational tools like baskets, dividers, and dividers, and folding your clothes correctly.
Use shelf dividers
These clear shelf dividers are easy to use, take up little space, and keep clothing organized. Use these inexpensive shelf dividers instead of messy stacks of sweaters clogging your shelves and getting wrinkled and creased.
Sort your clothes by color, type, and season to make it easier for you to find what you want. You can also create a closet that looks like a department shop.
Use Wall Space
Use the wall space to maximize your closet’s limited shelf space. Use the shelves only to store items that can’t be stored in any other way. Hang things like hats and bags on the walls. You’ll gain storage space and also have a decorative element.
Shoe boxes in clear are the best way to store your shoes
Store shoes inside clear boxes to maximize shelf space. The clear boxes make it easy to find your favorite pair. Stack them on top of the shelf or even on the floor. This method of shoe storage prevents damage, and it is also a great way for you to store out-of-season shoes in order to clear up your entryway.
Accessories for a Tray
You can use a cute tray to organize your accessories, clutch bags, and perfume collection that are taking over your entire home, including your shelves in the closet.
This decorative tool looks as good as it works. Sort items using smaller containers like bows or boxes in the tray. You can easily move the tray around from one place to another without having to move every item separately.
Label Storage Baskets
Store accessories for the season, socks, and clothing in baskets. Add labels to make it easier to find and give your closet an organized look.
Hang a Shelf
Slanted walls can make it difficult to use every corner of a small closet. Hang multi-purpose shelves of shorter lengths that can be used to hold hangers, boxes of clothes, and clothing stacks.
Use Wall Hooks
The wall hooks can be a very useful tool for storing items in a small space. Wall hooks are inexpensive and can be hung wherever you like. They add a decorative touch and can hold many different things, from sun hats to crossbody bags, belts to bath robes.
Install Storage Bins
Use storage bins if your closet is equipped with cubbie shelves. Due to their size and shape, small items can easily fall off the shelves and become stuck. This causes a mess and takes up more space than necessary.
This problem is eliminated by using fabric, plastic, or woven storage containers. You can easily pull out the entire container and find exactly what you are looking for. Bins containing the most commonly used items should be placed in the easiest-to-reach area, while those containing seasonal or occasional items can be placed higher up.
Hang an Over-the-Door Organizer
A cheap over-the-door organizer is a great way to increase the amount of space in your small closet. The organizers are usually made of clear plastic or fabric and are arranged horizontally or vertically. You can use them to store shoes, seasonal items like scarves, gloves, and extra toiletries in the bathroom closet.
Choose clear plastic containers
Clear acrylic storage containers are the best choice for a modern and clean look. They keep a closet looking open and spacious, and they also make it easy to find what you are looking for.
Store bags on hangers
Bags, whether they are totes, weekender bags, or shoulder bags that you use occasionally, tend to take up valuable closet space. Hanging bags on hangers will allow you to make the most out of your small closet. Instead of taking up a lot of space, they can be turned higher and take up less floor or shelf space. This will not only save space, as you can hang several bags on a single hanger, but also keep your bags in good shape.
Clutch bags can be placed in acrylic dividers
They’re great for clutch bags, too. Particularly those without a solid base that ends up bouncing around. This will help you organize your closet by separating each clutch into its compartment.
Extend Shelves To The Ceiling
If you are remodeling a closet to maximize storage, extend the shelves to the ceiling. Closet shelves are often at an unattractive height. This wastes valuable storage space. Use the upper shelves to store less-used items. Keep a step stool or a ladder in your closet for easy access.
Stacking boxes are a great way to keep jewelry safe
Use clear stacking boxes for a more space-efficient way to organize jewelry. Sort jewelry into different drawers according to type: necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. This is a simple, easy-to-maintain system.
Repurpose Trays as Wall Storage
Repurpose a decorative tray to make a wall jewelry holder for jewelry you wear often or large pieces that take up too much space in a jewelry case. You can display your favorite tunes on the wall and have them always at hand. This will also save you shelf space.
Folding Clothes Correctly
It’s not just about how you store your clothes. It starts with the way you fold them. Folding shirts or sweaters correctly not only helps keep clothes wrinkle-free and in good condition but also allows you to fit more items on a shelf. Rolling can be an effective way to store clothes in drawers, but a folding board will help you fold the tops neatly so that they take up less space.
Put your shoes in a basket.
A basket works well for casual shoes or flip-flops that do not need to be stored carefully in shoe boxes. Put it by your door or in a corner of the closet to make it easy to grab a pair as you leave.
Save space with Drawer Dividers
Use flexible dividers to keep your items neatly organized. These include socks and underwear. You can also use them for rolled-up t-shirts, camis, or even scarves. Fabric dividers are more flexible than plastic or wooden ones, as they can be stretched and bent to fit more items.
Closet Doors: Use them to your advantage
You can use your closet door as an alternative storage option if you’re running out of space in your shelves, drawers, and walls. Hang an organizer over the door to hold shoes, seasonal accessories, and bulkier items. Use coat hooks for bags, belts, and other more cumbersome objects.
