Living in a huge city has a lot of perks. The downside is that the cost of living is quite high, including the house rental fees. You have no choice but to stay in a smaller flat and make the most of it. Living in a small space also means that you have a small closet. It might be frustrating, but you can still make the most of it. These tricks will help you fit everything you own in a small space.
Add a clothing bar
It helps if you have an additional clothing bar since you can easily hang your clothes. You don’t need to worry about folding them. You only need a clothes hanger, and it’s enough to organise more items in the same space.
Place storage in the lower area
You can request to have additional storage placed in the lower area of the closet. You can still keep a few things in that area, including socks, undergarments, and small items.
Maximise the use of modular shelves
You don’t need to fit everything in your small closet. You can use modular shelves. They’re easy to set up. You can also select the items you don’t mind showing to guests if they come over.
Choose sliding doors
The good thing about a closet with a sliding door is that it won’t occupy too much space. You can also make the most of whatever area is available since you don’t need to push or pull the door to get the items inside.
Get rid of unused clothes
The reason why your closet looks small is that you have a lot of unused clothes inside. Perhaps, you have to consider throwing some of them away. Getting rid of unused clothes will help make the closet look more spacious. You can place these clothes in a box and donate them to charitable organisations. You can also keep the box in a different storage room if you think about using those clothes again in the future.
Use a wicker basket
You can use a wicker basket if you don’t have a lot of panels or drawers in your closet. You can use wicker baskets to keep underwear, socks, accessories, and many other items.
Place hooks somewhere in your bedroom
A small hook is enough to hold different items including your coat, scarves, belts, and ties. It’s a cheap solution to your problem with space.
Rearrange your shoes
You already own a lot of shoes because you keep buying a new pair each month. It might be time to stop buying new shoes. You also need to rearrange the ones you own. You will find it easy to locate the shoes you want to use when you reorganise them in the closet.
Go for a fitted wardrobe
You can consider having a fitted wardrobe so that you can decide how to customise your closet based on your needs. It might cost a lot, but it helps avoid issues related to space.
With these tips, you won’t feel bad living in a small house anymore.
