Look Up

Start by looking up! If you have tall ceilings, take advantage of it with wardrobe lifts that make it easy to store clothes without causing damage or wrinkles. Looking to install shelving above door frames can also increase the usable space in your closet. Be sure you use durable materials to ensure shelving won’t fall to the ground.

Check The Floor

Just as you would look up, check the floor. Shelving, cabinets, and drawers along the bottom of your closet can help you get more usable storage space. To eliminate piles of dirty clothes on the floor, consider a built-in hamper in your closet. If you have a walk-in, having a clear pathway can also make it feel like you have a much bigger closet than you do.

Go Custom

Weirdly-shaped rooms can make it hard to store clothes, bags, and shoes. In addition, these spaces may have awkward angles that prevent you from maximizing your closet. Custom cabinetry and closet systems may be the best way to increase the functionality of your space.

Use Vertical Storage

For small and narrow closets, vertical may be the only way you can go! Utilize any wall space you have, even your closet door. You have a few options including a slatted wall system, shelving, and hooks.

Slatted walls are perfect for storing jewelry and can free up shelving or drawer space. By using vertical shelving, with adjustable heights, you can ensure you have room for sandals and sweaters alike. A set of hooks can also be helpful and can be installed nearly anywhere for scarves or accessories. Use our slim multi-hook accessories to save space.
