40 Small Yet Functional Closet Ideas
Small spaces are a common thing today: we have small homes, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms and there’s so little space for such a functional thing as a closet that we have to look for some ideas to squeeze our clothes and shoes somewhere and somehow. Today’s roundup is dedicated to some ways to solve these issues and get maximum of your space.
A makeshift closet is a concept of an open closet that is placed wherever you want, though you will see them mainly in bedrooms for obvious reasons. You just place a rack for clothes hangers, attach some open shelving to the walls if you want and put a dresser next to it or at least some boxes for smaller stuff and shoes, and voila – here’s your closet! Such a concept is popular for very small homes and for those who love their clothes and shoes, they double as decor – you show off your favorite pieces displaying them at their best.

A small closet can be built in into your bedroom, paired with your home office or any other space, it can be a separate nook that you divide with a sliding door or just a usual separate space. Decide what’s important: having more racks for clothes hangers or having more open shelving and drawers and design your space according to that. Don’t forget that drawers are anyway a must for every closet – you will need them for small stuff like lingerie. Think where you place your shoes – on shelves, on a shoe rack, on holders attached to the wall or in simple boxes. Build in as many lights as you can to make your things more visible and your closet more light-filled, and attach to the wall or put a large mirror on the floor. Your small closet can still have a design and style, and you can express that with various accessories, with the color or stain of the storage units, lights and your stool or ottoman. Get inspired by the ideas we’ve gathered for you and create your own perfect closet!
