25 Ways To Maximize Your Closet Space To The Fullest

Most of us will reach a point in life where we need a little space. For our stuff. While the minimalist lifestyle is appealing, the honest truth is that most people are lacking in storage. Maybe you’re crammed into a small house or apartment to save money; maybe you just really like clothing and accessories; or maybe you live in a place that has four separate and distinct seasons and wildly different wardrobe needs for each. Whatever your reasons, you may find yourself with more stuff than space, or perhaps you’re just putting off cleaning out your closets. To inspire you to organizational greatness, here’s a list of 25 Ways To Maximize Your Closet Space To The Fullest.


A kitchen paper towel holder mounted inside a door or on a narrow wall can hold scarves and necklaces, and you can use a small towel bar with S hooks for belts.

Use wasted space; little weird nooks and crannies can fit small bookshelves to hold your accessories like purses.

Use a set of heavy duty canvas bags instead of hampers to pre-sort your washing. They're easier to carry, and particularly handy if you have to make trips to the laundromat.

Remove things that aren't clothes, shoes, or accessories. Plastic bags that come back with your dry cleaning, boxes of letters from past lovers, Christmas presents you bought in June, etc.

Use thinner, matching hangars. Thicker hangers take up more room, and the fancy cascading hangars or weirdly shaped ones can be hard to get things off of and end up just going unused and taking up space. Uniform hangars just make your whole closet look neater and more pulled together.
