Clever Ways to Store Your Clothes

by Sally Smith on Feb 13, 2014

You just bought your dream home. It has the backyard you want, along with all the bedrooms necessary for the family. However, the previous owners took their furniture, including their wardrobe, leaving a small closet left for both spouses to share. If you have encountered this problem, there are clever ways to design and create more storage space in your home, from sliding wardrobes to built in wardrobes.

Converting A Wall

If you bedroom has one long wall, with a mirror pinned to it, you can easily convert this area into a wardrobe. With a buildout only requiring about two or three feet of space from the wall, you can have a huge storage space using sliding wardrobes. The doors slide on rails, allowing you to access any space inside. Doors can have mirrors installed on them, giving you a full-length vision of yourself, with ample storage at the same time.

Adding A Freestanding Wardrobe

Similar to adding a cabinet to the bedroom, simply use freestanding wardrobes to add more storage space. You can still fit long dresses or suits in these tall, built in wardrobes. Alternatively, add some shelves for folded items, such as dress shirts. You can even line up several wardrobes side-by-side, creating more storage space for the entire family.

Secured Shelving Option

For a more minimalist look, add shelving to a wall using secured posts. These posts place pressure on the ceiling and floor to keep them stable, providing more walking space for anyone nearby. Customize the wardrobe with closet rods for hanging items, and shelves for stacked clothes. Shelves can be stacked from the floor to the ceiling, maximizing your space in a small home. The configurations are almost endless with this wardrobe selection.

Remodeling Side Closet

Many homes have a side closet near the front or back door. Place a wardrobe in this space to maximize your storage options. Because it is not located in a bedroom, do not store clothes here, but use it for shoes, and other accessories. If everyone stored their shoes in the wardrobe, there would be less dirt brought into the home, reducing cleaning time and associated costs. You also free space in the bedrooms for more clothing storage. For fashion enthusiasts, this is the perfect configuration for storage perfection.

Don't panic if you find yourself struggling for storage space in your new home. Carefully inspect your space to find the best wardrobe solution. From building a customized storage area to buying a prefabricated wardrobe furniture piece, you are sure to find a solution to keep your family organized.
