How to optimize the space of my dressing room?
In order to really maximize the space you have in your closet, you have to be smart. If you have built-in drawers in your closet, consider using drawer dividers or fabric clothing dividers to keep everything in its place and organized. If you find all your shoes are tossed in the back of your closet, why not keep them in pairs with something like this double-hanging shoe storage? This way you can add larger boxes at the bottom and fill them with seasonal items such as winter coats in the summer and bikinis in the winter. Catch the drift yet?
If you don’t have drawers but To do have storage space in your closet, then consider these stackable baskets from Amazon. They slide in and out so you can easily access things like knits and use the “dead space” you might otherwise not have used. Do you have room for a shelf, but you don’t have one built in? Create your own with these extendable shelves that also feature rails for hanging items. So smart.
Elsewhere, if it’s the size of your wardrobe that limits you when it comes to storage solutions, then why not hang items together and reduce the clutter of multiple hangers? Space-saving trouser hangers and hangers are a dream for this. Trust us, we have many.
