9 Storage Ideas for Small Closets

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Are you struggling with the lack of space in a small closet? Use these nine easy steps to maximize storage.

Additional Tips

  • Space is at a premium in a small closet, so determine what you really need. Place items in three piles: keep, donate, and toss. If you haven't used it in a year, it's a safe bet that you can get rid of it.
  • Use drawer organizers to keep folded clothes in neat stacks.
  • Use a combination of single and double rods in the closet to accommodate shorter clothing items.
  • Fold sweaters and jeans, and place them on shelves above rods to free up space for hangers.
  • Hang a pegboard and hooks for hats, purses and scarves.
  • Hang shadow boxes on the closet wall as a decorative way to store and show off jewelry and small accessories.
