Some homes are blessed with ample amounts of storage, while others are forced to get creative if they want to keep things organized and out of the way. While having a big closet makes your life a little less cluttered, small closets can still be useful. If you’re struggling to find a place for everything in your home, here are a few ways to make the most out of small closet space.

Utilize the Nooks and Crannies

Many small closets have more usable space than you think. The way to make the most out of a small space is to use every available inch—including the nooks and crannies that often go overlooked. Utilize the side areas that are out-of-sight by installing hang on a slidable hanging rod or add a few laminate shelves to easily slide things over. This will increase your storage space and gives you a place to neatly stack extra garments, linens, pants, shoes, or anything else you can think of.

Add Space for Shoe Storage

To get the most out of your small closet space, install shoe storage either along the top up high or set up a dedicated shelving area.. Shoes take up a lot of space all by themself, but when you take advantage of placing them in boxes or in cubbies , you’ll be able to get more out of your small closet. There are plenty of different ways to add shoe storage to your space, so try a few options and see what works best for you. 

Create a Double-Hang Rod

If you only have one rod in your closet for clothes as most closets do, try adding a second, or third one of you have the space.. Make sure to measure your garments and group like sided garment together so that you’re not wasting valuable space.. This can give you twice as much space to hang your clothes without any extreme alterations to your closet.

Consider Changing or Remove the Doors

Having an open and accessible closet space  can make your space look and feel a lot bigger, plus it makes viewing inside the closet easier and encourages you to stay organized. Changing a bi-pass door to a hinged door  on your closet will give you clear view inside  and makes reaching into your closet much easier.
