Use Shelf Dividers

Piles of sweaters and pants can look messy and unorganized on a closet shelf. To prevent this, use shelf dividers. Shelf dividers separate the closet space and allow for a clear distinction between different types and styles of clothing.

Combine Baskets With Bins

When it comes to closet storage, it’s important to consider all the storage that’s available to you. Open storage baskets are a great pick for items that need to be worn regularly, while closed bins can be used to store lesser-used or more cluttered items.

Keep It Simple

Not all closets need to have 40+ hangers and 10+ boxes and bins. If your wardrobe is more minimal, your closet should reflect that. To create a minimal bedroom closet, only hang what you’ll be wearing that season, and only put in boxes and bins what you regularly use or wear. Barely-worn formal wear or athletic clothing can be stored elsewhere in the home if you have the space.

Go White

For a fresh and clean-feeling closet (no matter how many clothes may be stored in it) use white shelving, cabinetry, and walls. Matching shades of white create a cohesive and pared-down feeling and bring a sense of peace to a space that more often than not feels a little chaotic.

Go Black

For a one-of-a-kind chic bedroom closet look, use all-black: black shelving, hangers, and storage. A monochrome closet like this will feel bold, stylish, and put-together. To really make the black pop, display your lightest-colored clothing in the middle of it.

Add Glass

If you want to protect your clothing from dust and dirt while still being able to view them, use glass doors and drawers. Glass doors provide protection and plenty of visual interest (as long as you keep things tidy).

Use Clothing Racks

If your bedroom doesn’t have a closet, or it’s being used for something else, consider adding a clothing rack to your space. Long gone are the days of flimsy aluminum racks—now you can find clothing racks that are almost as stylish as the clothes that rest upon them.

Try Velvet Hangers

Good hangers can often make or break a closet space. For a luxe look that makes your clothes look better too, try velvet hangers. These high-end hangers are slim, and stylish, and prevent clothing from slipping off.

Go Wooden

Another picture-perfect hanger pick is wooden hangers. These hangers bring a boutique look to your closet, and they look pretty good too. Plus, they’re far more durable and long-lasting than plastic or wood hangers.

Add a Little Shoe Shelf

If your shoe collection is the highlight of your wardrobe, make sure your closet has space to show them off. And you don’t need much space to do this either—a single wall with shoe shelves in a small walk-in closet will do nicely.

Remove Your Doors

Closet doors are often seen as the curtain that we hide all of our closet clutter behind. But if your closet is well-organized, why not show it off? Removing doors brings a fun and unique look to your bedroom.

A door-free closet is the perfect maximalist pick for a closet that’s full of colorful and patterned clothing.

Use Small Organizers

To bring organization to small shelves filled with multiple items (like wallets) use small organizers to give each accessory a space and to give you a way to quickly find them.

Add a Frame

Closets can be so much more than boring, utilitarian spaces—they can be decorated too. One of the easiest ways to add décor to your closet is through a framed print or picture, like what’s pictured in the closet above from Laura Cattano Organizational Design. Not only does it add personality to a forgotten space, but also connects to the style in the rest of your home.

Add a Dresser

For a built-in look without the hefty price tag, add a dresser to your bedroom closet. You’ll get extra storage and some extra shelving too. But to make this look feel custom, pick a dresser in a color or finish that matches your existing closet shelving.

Don’t Forget the Mirror

Fewer things are sadder than putting together the perfect outfit only to realize you can’t see yourself in it. A full-length mirror is a must-have for any bedroom closet, but don’t worry about figuring out where to put it—an installation on the bedroom door will do.

Install Lighting

Lighting in bedroom closets is crucial, but it’s time to think beyond boring overhead lighting. Instead, instead cabinet lighting. It will be less harsh than overhead florescent, and it will make your closet (and its contents) look more high-end too. Not to mention, you’ll be able to find items more easily.

Show Off Your Accessories

If you have the space (and the stylish accessories to match) consider using your bedroom closet to show off your accessories. This affordable bedroom closet hack requires only shelving—no rods, bins, or drawers to worry about or install. Soon, your shoes, bags, and wallets can be displayed like the work of art they are.

Use Multiple Racks

To create as much storage as possible in your bedroom closet, use more than one rack to hang clothes. Keep the lower, more accessible rack available for clothes that are in-season or used regularly, and use the upper rack to store clothes that are out-of-season or rarely worn.

Make a Rainbow

Want to find what you need quickly, and add some closet style while you’re doing it? Sort your clothing by color for a rainbow effect. This works best if the color-sorted clothing is all the same type, like short-sleeved shirts. Otherwise, you risk mixing turtlenecks with tank tops.

Hang by Size

Another helpful way to store and hang clothing is by sorting it by size. Keep the shorter items on one side, like shorts and tanks, and keep the longer items, like formal wear or jackets, on the other.
