5 No-Closet Solutions For Small Spaces

There are different ways to tackle your design dilemma without spending a fortune!


Have you ever experienced finding the perfect home—accessible location, great neighborhood, reasonable rent—only to find out that there is no closet to be seen anywhere? 

This isn't uncommon nowadays, especially with the number of studio apartments and tiny homes around. Don't let this challenge stop you from styling a wardrobe that isn't just pretty but practical, too. Take inspiration from our list of smart ways to store your belongings below:

To build a makeshift closet and dressing area, consider lofting your bed. Doing this helps open up floor space that you can use to add a rack for clothes and storage bins for shoes. You can even include a small vanity where you can spend time getting ready.

If you would rather fold your clothes in piles instead of hanging them up, install shelves with various levels to serve as a place for you to organize pants, outerwear, everyday shoes, and even accessories. You can even go as far as adding a few knickknacks for a more personalized feel.

Make your belongings double as the feature wall of your sleeping space by creating a faux headboard with them. Keep the colorful pieces in the center to draw attention to the bed.

If you're not too keen on the idea of seeing your clothes all the time, you can opt to install a curtain rod and hang sheer drapes to disguise your makeshift wardrobe. Go with neutral colors to make sure that it will match your existing decor.

The simplest and most inexpensive solution? A simple clothing rack. You can go with a frestanding model or something with more levels for footwear. To save even more money, you can DIY one out of a PVC pipe or tension rods.
