Closet Ideas for a Small Space

If you thought that the only problem you have with your closet is its size, you might be missing a bigger issue. Very often, it isn’t just the size of the closet that is the problem, but the size of your attachment to your stuff that is the bigger issue at hand. You’re not alone. We all form attachment to our things. Especially pieces of clothing we’ve worn or shoes and other items we store in the closet, these things have sentimental value. However, if you ever plan on doing some closet organization, you will have to take a hard look at these things.

Some of the most unbelievable changes can come from doing what appears to be a simple spring cleaning of the closet. You never know what you are going to feel and what you might emotionally or psychologically might have to be prepared to let go of. This is ultimately the hardest thing about doing a thorough job of reorganizing your closet. The types of closet organizers available on the market can help you with the more physical aspect of creating more space in even the tightest of places, but they can’t necessarily help you with this other aspect we’ve been discussing.

Having said all of this, there are certain space issues that some closet design ideas can help mitigate. There is only so much you can do with a closet that is 4’x5’ or some other small dimension like this. However, with the use of some of the closet organizers on the market, you can make that closet space feel much larger. One thing to consider is the hanger systems that allow for the items to be collapsed or dropped down, sort of like an accordion. These look like one hanger hanging from another and so on. Usually, they are several ‘linked’ together, usually 5 or 6. There is a definite advantage in space that these can offer. Instead of the bulk of the clothes hanging next to one another, they now hang somewhat beneath one another, allowing you to hang more just next to those.

Other closet ideas that are helpful are things like using clear boxes for items like shoes or purses that don’t need their own box or case. This way, the items you use less often can be stored away nicely, but still visible for when you need to have access to them. When you’re dealing with a small space, these types of hanging and storage solutions, combined with a purging of no longer useful items will go a long way toward helping you gain control of your closet space again.
