Make use of empty wall space. Install shelves and hanging rods on a wall.
The Container Store and some home improvement stores offer simple do-it-yourself closet systems that are easy to install. These systems will help you keep your clothes off the floor and out of the way.
Make sure you measure your wall space and note any possible obstructions (such as vents or outlets) before you purchase a system.
Utilize under-the-bed storage.
Bins and baskets can be stored underneath your bed or in other areas of your room.
You can buy storage containers specifically designed to fit underneath a bed. This is a great way to make use of otherwise wasted space.
Use hooks. Hang coats, hats, scarves, and other items onto hooks on the wall or door. This will free up space in your dresser or on the floor.
Don't forget about the back of the door. Install hooks or an over-the-door rack to store clothing, accessories or shoes on the back of your door. This is a great way to make use of an otherwise unused space.
With a little creativity, you can easily find storage solutions for your clothes, even if you don't have a closet. By utilizing empty wall space, under-the-bed storage, hooks, and creative furniture placement, you can keep your small room organized and clutter-free.
When storing your clothes in a small room without a closet, it is also very important to make sure that your clothes are clean and wrinkle free. Your clothing should be ready-to-wear in a couple of minutes. Who wants to spend the time ironing or steaming when you’re in a hurry to get ready for that early morning meeting? You should also make sure that your clothes are sorted by season. You might want to store your off-season clothes in a different area.
No matter how you choose to store your clothes, the most important thing is to keep your room clutter free. Pick up your clothes off the floor and put them away each day. If you have a garment rack, make sure your clothes are hung up neatly. If you are using bins or baskets, be sure to keep them organized and labeled so you can easily find what you are looking for. A little bit of effort each day will go a long way in keeping your room looking its best.
