Hallway Built-in Dresser.jpgHelp! My Closet is too Small

Small closets can indeed be challenging, but there are effective solutions to maximize your storage space. Here are some ideas to help you organize your compact closet:

Three Solutions for Small Closets:

  1. Be sure that you are maximizing the space you have. A well-designed closet balances hanging space and shelves while keeping your wardrobe accessible. Using the design principles of 32 mm closet systems, closet components are designed to use all vertical space in a closet, unlike a single rod and shelf or wire shelving that leave unused space above and below.
  2. Go outside the box: Empty walls are an opportunity to extend your wardrobe storage space outside of your closet. Alcoves, nooks or corners are a perfect place to add wardrobe cabinets or built-in drawers.
  3. Purge: Take a hard look at every item in your closet and ask these three questions:
    1. Do I love it?
    2. Does it fit?
    3. Did it go out of style in the 1970s?

It is amazing how stuff accumulates. A new pair of jeans. Another pair of shoes! We bring it into our homes and hang it in the closet until one day, that one item is the thing that becomes the straw that broke the camel’s back. If you are like me, you can’t stand to part with anything that might be useful. But how useful is a pair of bellbottoms that you haven’t worn since Woodstock? You get the idea. Learning to let go is the best place to start with your closet organization project.
