When it comes to a small clothes closet, the key to making it work starts with maximizing every inch of space. That way, you can find exactly what you’re looking for without digging through piles of stuff (and stressing yourself out in the process).
First, though, you’ll need to pare down the items you already own. Start by taking everything out and sorting it into a pile to keep, a pile to donate, and a pile to toss. Remember, if an item doesn’t spark joy or you can’t remember the last time you wore it, it’s time to say goodbye.
Then consider the following space savers and create a plan based on what will work best for you.
- Store items seasonally. Because space is at a premium, you’ll save yourself some headaches by only keeping what you need in your closet per season. Store out-of-season clothes and shoes under your bed in garment bags or in a closet elsewhere in your home.
