1 min read
Whether you are trying to save money on rent or willing to sacrifice square footage for a great urban location, there are many positive aspects to living in a small property. Having a small closet just isn’t one of them. Luckily, there are ways to make the most of small spaces without throwing away all of your clothes, most of which you can do on your own with minimal work and costs. Read on for some closet design hacks that can help improve both the functionality and look of your wardrobe.
Pare down your wardrobe. This isn’t ideal, but chances are, you really do have some clothes in your wardrobe that you are not using. If you haven’t worn an item in a year, chances are you never will. Be honest with yourself about what does and doesn’t fit, and alternate storage areas for items you keep solely for sentimental reasons.
Add in additional hanging areas. If you are able to work another rod into your closet design, that’s great, but consider adding a rolling clothes rack into your space. If you carefully select the items you keep on the rack, you can give your bedroom a “showroom” vibe while also using it as a great place to dry your clothes. A lot of these portable racks can be DIY projects. A quick online search will yield tons of simple tutorials.
Loft your bed. Creating a second mini closet is a great way to create space for your growing wardrobe and maximize wasted space in your bedroom. Even if your ceilings are a normal height, lofting your bed is a great and totally accessible way to use vertical space. To keep your clothes hidden, you can hang a curtain around the loft, adding flair and function.
