How to Find More Closet Space

Bedrooms, bathrooms, closets – these are the top concerns for potential homeowners on the hunt. If you’re a homeowner pining for more room to stock your clothes, read on for these helpful hints.

Reduce. This is the first step to making more room in your closet. We’re all guilty of hanging on to things we don’t use. Make a habit of reducing your wardrobe seasonally. Ask yourself if you wore this in the past six months. If the answer is no, donate it to a charity, bring it to a consignment shop, or have yourself a yard sale.

Get creative with storage. Don’t settle for simple shelves. Cubbies, bins and wire racks can offer storage solutions to streamline your space. Adding rods or racks to the back of your closet door or the sides of your closet can offer extra stash space.

Stagger. There’s no need to have only one or two hanging rods. Stagger your rods at different heights and lengths and arrange garments accordingly.

Look to the ceiling. Does your shelving reach all the way to the ceiling? If not, you could be missing out on several feet of storage space. Add another shelf (or three!) to the top of your closet and store out-of-season clothes or things you don’t reach for on a daily basis.
