How to improve your closet space with these 4 simple tips to master your small space.

1. First Thing’s First—Lighten the Load

The first way to improve your closet space is to clean out the closet. Make a point every 6 months to clear the clutter and get rid of unused clothing items. A good rule of thumb—If you haven’t worn it in a year, throw it out or donate it.

2. Utilize Vertical Space

Look high and low to find unused space in your closet. Add extra shelves and rods lower and/or higher than your typical space where you can or use dead wall space to add hooks, bins, or shelves.

3. Use the Closet Door

The inside of a closet door is a great place for additional storage. By adding hooks, small baskets, and even rods, you now have a place for those hard-to-store items like scarves, hats, purses, and other accessories.

4. Fill the Odd Space.

Use bicycle hooks to hang suitcases and odd-sized items from the ceiling. The small dead space on the wall above the door is a great place to hang rarely used items or to add shelves. If you look hard enough, you may be able to find other unused odd spaces to add some hooks, shelves, or bins.
