Read on for proof that if you don’t have a closet–that’s okay. You don’t need one.

Go beyond the bedroom.

Your bedroom’s lack of a closet might be a hint. Try a clothing rack or two in the living room for added storage and even a fun way to divide a room.

Layer!

Your clothing covers multiple lengths, and your clothing rods can, too. Layer rods over each other, keeping longer items like maxi dresses on the lower levels.

One-purpose shelving.

Shoes can count as decor. We said it and we meant it. Dedicate what wall space you can to tiered shelving for shoes to get them off that pile on the ground and elegantly organized.

Sneaky, sneaky.

A floor-to-ceiling curtain hung behind a bed creates hidden space prime for clothing storage. The curtain creates privacy enough to make it your dressing room, too.

Go low, middle, and high.

Every inch of that wall is there for a reason. Compartmentalize each section to be useful, and evenly space items among each section to prevent a cluttered look.

Join forces.

If hanging a clothing rod won’t suffice for your whole wardrobe, add shelving or a dresser with deep drawers to help contain the couture.

Think outside the box–literally.

Not all closet solutions are created equal. It might take more than a snap-together clothing rack to get the job done. Explore custom design to really suit the space you’ve got.
