Your bedroom closet may seem to get more and more crowded each year. However, here are a few ways to make the most of your closet space.

Maximize Vertical Space

One option available to maximize the vertical space is a closet rod double hanger. This rod is adjustable and will allow you to leave some of the closet rod space for full-length items like dresses.

Use the Space on the Back of the Door

Over-the-door organizers are perfect for storing shoes, ties, handbags or other small accessories without using shelf space.

Store Off-Season Clothes

If you have storage space in an attic, pack off-season clothes in insect-proof bags and store them out of the bedroom closet. This will allow you to store more pertinent clothes and items for the particular season.

Free Up Your Closet Rod

Empty hangers are one of the biggest space hogs in a bedroom closet. Don’t keep more hangers than you have articles of clothing. Take your extra wire hangers to a dry cleaner. or simply give them to someone who may need them.

Use Modular Drawer Units

Short modular closet drawer or bin systems take advantage of the space between the bottom of your shirts and the floor. Drawers can store sweaters, hats, scarves and other clothes that don’t need to be hung up.
