4 Ways to Create More Space in a Small Closet

Just because you have a small closet doesn’t mean you can’t have tons of storage space! Smaller closets can be goldmines for storage with the right design. Maximizing every inch of existing space is the key to creating even more space in a small closet. Here are a few ways you can increase the storage potential of your small closet:

  1. 4 Ways to Create More Space in a Small ClosetWhat a small closet lacks in width it can make up for in vertical space. Embrace double hanging to give yourself twice the amount of hanging room for clothes. If you want to take things a step further, staggered rods will give you even more space and give you room for long-hanging items like dresses.
  2. The space freed up by double or staggered hanging creates the perfect spot for shelving. Install shelves directly above the hanging rods and use them for stacking sweaters, shoe boxes, etc.  
  3. Every inch of space in a small closet is prime real estate for storage, including the door! Hang hooks on the back of your closet door for scarves, necklaces, or the next day’s outfit. 
  4. The sides of your closet are also great places to incorporate more storage. Slide-out belt and tie racks attach to the side panels of the closet and hold multiple items without taking away precious space for shelves and hanging. 

Square footage isn’t the be-all and end-all of storage space in a closet. With a touch of smart design and organization, even a small closet can feel spacious!
