5 Small Walk-In Closet Organization Tips And 40 Ideas
Think that you don’t have space for a walk-in closet? That’s not true, today I’m sharing small, even tiny walk-in closets that can be accommodated even in the smallest nooks and corners. And of course, I’ll share some ideas to organize such a space so that you could squeeze most of it.
First of all, remember that a small walk-in closet will have only three usable sides, so you shouldn’t clutter it to make finding things easier. Organize it so that you could easily see what you need at first glance. Second, choosing colors and shades for decor, opt for peaceful and light ones because they visually expand the space.
Make A Leading Rack
Make a series of high street shelves rising to the ceiling where you can keep things without them coming down on your head. At some point modular slots and shelves must be installed to hold shoes and purses along with small cubes and drawers that need to be set up to accommodate folded clothing and other items. You can also add various alternative configurations and improvements for the best organization.

‘S’ and ‘L’ formed hooks are your best friends! Such hooks are easily available and can be used for many things in your closet: from shoes to coats and umbrellas. You can attach them to the walls or right to the cabinets if there are any.

Get Storage Baskets Or Drawers
Baskets and cubbies are ideal to store small items like socks and underwear. Even nightgowns or pajamas can be rolled up and put in storage baskets liberating a great deal of drawer space. This way they will be perfectly clean and won’t clutter the whole space, which is essential when the closet is really tiny. If you have drawers, you can of course use them for these things.

Light Up The Space
Lighting up a tiny closet is essential due to many reasons. First, light makes any space look bigger than it is. Second, it makes finding things easier and third, it’ll look more comfortable and welcoming with lots of light. Use chandeliers, LED lights, garlands and mirrors with lights to enlighten the space.
