Today, I’m sharing my ultimate closet hacks to maximize space and care for your clothes.

If you didn’t already know, I´m a big fan of shopping from your own closet and being creative with the clothes you have. The downside of shopping from your own collection, is the issue of storage. It´s meant I´ve gotten quite creative over the years, so let´s take a peak what´s inside. 

 

Transform your closet with these storage solutions

 

If you ask me, the closet is prime real estate, so when we were building our place in Montana, I took the opportunity to create a space I loved. I appreciate I´m blessed in the closet department now, but it wasn’t always that way. Whatever the size of your closet, a good storage solution, is a good storage solution, and are some of my favorites that I still use to this day. 

My Ultimate Closet Hacks to Maximize Space

 

 

Office File Boxes

 

You might think they´re out of place here, but these clear file boxes from Target are handy and a great way to utilize shelf space. I line them up and store scarves inside. The clear acrylic is also very browser friendly.

Drawer Dividers

 

Drawer dividers are simple, yet effective. I use them for sock, underwear, and accessory drawers. Drawer organizers allow you to make the most of your space, stay organized and easily swap items in or out as the seasons change.

 

 

Pull Out Rods

 

Pull out rods are easy to install and a great space saver. I like to use them for belts, as they´re easily accessible and just as easily tucked away again.

Stagger Hanger Clips

 

Stagger the clips on your trouser hangers, to maximize hanging room. You´ll be surprised at the difference this little adjustment makes.

How to Maximize Hanging Space

Corral Old Hangers

 

If you´ve got unused hangers, don´t just leave them hanging there taking up space. Instead, corral them into old boxes, so they´re ready for when they´re needed again.

Closet Hacks for Shoes and Accessories

 

We´ve maximized your drawer, shelf and hanging space, now onto the shoes and accessories.

 

 

Use Trays for Odds and Ends

 

There is often wasted space below hanging items, so make the most of this with trays and boxes. It´s a great way to gather up the odds and ends to keep them organized.

Shoe Storage Solutions

 

A simple bookshelf is a great storage solution for shoes. Display them with the left toes facing out to your closet and the right toe facing back, and you´ll fit an extra pair of shoes on each shelf.

 

 

Storage Solutions for Purses

 

The perfect way to store your purse depends on the size of it. Larger purses should be stored hanging, to keep the bottoms from creasing. I have an adjustable display rack, that works perfectly.

For smaller purses I use an acrylic filing system, which you can pick up from any office store.

Bags and Hats

 

Maximize space by hanging bags and hats on a peg. No need to take up hanging room inside your closet, instead attach them to the outside of your cabinetry.

So, that rounds up my ultimate closet hacks to maximize space and care for your clothes. Enjoy transforming your closet.
