Creative Closet Design Ideas
Use a clothing rack
A clothes rack is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to store your clothes. Depending on the number of clothes you need to hand, you can take up one whole wall or just part of it. Since it’s out in the open, use uniform hangers for your clothes. Placing hats or scarves on its ends will add a decorative touch to the racks.
Use coat hooks
If you already have a cabinet then you just need more space for all your belongings. So create a mini corner for yourself by using wall-mounted shelves and coat hooks. Install the shelves on the wall and place several hooks underneath. You have the additional option to hang tension rods so you have extra hanging space.
Make your clothes look better by hanging them by color, and of course, do not leave the shelves empty. Place frames and other decorative items on top.
Use storage bins
Canvas storage bins make great storage options.Even if you leave it out in the open, they still look good. Have a slim shelf with small cubes that fit the canvas bins. You can use this to store plenty of things like toys,clothes, or accessories.
Use wood with a natural finish
Installing wooden bars on the wall will save on floor space and give a great minimalist look to your space. In the photo above, the owner used nails as support, but you should use something more sturdy when hanging heavier items.
