Tips and tricks for making the most of limited space
- Take full advantage of the top shelf. If you have a shelf in your closet, add storage baskets for smaller items like gloves, scarves, belts and other accessories.
- Utilize the bottom of your closet, too. If you have space under your clothing rack, add a small chest of drawers, mesh pull-out drawers or a shoe rack/stacking shoe shelves.
- Double up. Consider adding a second hanging rod, if the length of your clothes allows.
- Swap out hangers. Padded, fabric-covered hangers look nice, but all that padding takes up a lot of valuable real estate. Swap them out for slim, velvet, no-slip hangers.
- Don’t forget about the back of the door. An over-the-door organizer works great for storing sneakers, jewelry and sunglasses. Or try mini-hanging baskets for belts and clutches. You can even hang larger bags on the back of the door using adhesive hooks.
- Install a dimmer. Soft, dim light is comforting, relaxing and perfecting for kicking back on a fall evening. Switch out a standard light switch with a dimmer and you’ll have an easy way to create the perfect mood for dinner with friends.
- Light some candles. The warm glow of candlelight exudes serenity. Arrange candles of varying heights on a tray, then place the tray on a coffee or side table (of course, make sure you don’t leave lit candles unattended).
- Bring the outdoors in. Feathery, dried grasses and flowers straight from your garden (or your local farmer’s market or craft store) in a ceramic or clear glass vase complement a tranquil vibe.
