Here at Closet & Storage Concepts, we provide ways to customize your closets and create storage solutions that are tailored to your needs and lifestyle. If you live in a small Boston home or apartment, you know how tricky it can be to find space for everything. Learn how to utilize your space wisely and organize your closet with these space-saving tips and tricks.
Replace Your Swinging Door
If you have a closet door that swings out into the room, replace it with a curtain or sliding door. This frees up the area taken up by the door, while still keeping your closet covered up and your room looking clean. Using a curtain also allows you the creative freedom to personalize your closet’s façade by choosing fabric to match your style.
Put Out-Of-Season Items Away
Living in a small home means you don’t get the luxury of having all of your belongings readily accessible at all times. It also means you might not have space in your closet for bulky items. Use some vintage suitcases or simple crates to store your heavy blankets and winter coats when they’re out of season. If you can’t fit these storage containers in your closet then you can integrate them into your home’s décor. Stack them and use them as side tables or nightstands. This will free up space in your closet for the things you will be using at that time.
Utilize Every Inch Of Space
In small living areas, it’s extra important to utilize every bit of space you have. This is especially true for your closet. Customize it so you have storage areas that work specifically for your needs. Make use of the space both above and below the rod where your clothes hang. Use a shelving unit for shoes to keep them organized and off the floor. Fold and stack clothes that don’t need to be hung on upper shelving units, and use dividers to keep them neatly organized. You can fill any extra nooks and crannies with storage bins for miscellaneous items.
If you live in a small space with little room to spare, consider customizing your closet to create a better storage solution for your Boston home.
