Even when you have large closets, there never seems to be enough space. So get rid of things you don’t need – donate them, hand them down, etc., then better organize what you have left. Here are some tips:
1) Whether you are sharing your apartment closet space with a roommate, spouse, or child, one good way to set boundaries is to incorporate a tower of some sort in the middle – like a shoe rack or stack of drawers. Share the drawers and then assign each side for individual use.
2) Mount a pegboard (but check first with your apartment manager) to hang belts, purses, jewelry, scarves, etc.
3) Hang a mirror in a walk-in closet to create an instant dressing area.
4) Inexpensive canvas hanging shelves get shoes up off the floor and make great use of vertical space.
Just a few small changes can make your closet feel larger and work more efficiently!
