Double up on racks: Double closet space by installing two rods across the same area. Hang tops on upper rack, and use the lower rack for skirts and pants.

Put drawers in the closet: Cloth pull-out bins come in a variety of sized. Mount the soft-sided drawers in vertical rows from closet floor to ceiling.

Snap in shoe racks: Use tension rods to get shoes off the floor. A pair of parallel rods a few inches apart creates and airy rack for your favorite flats.

Store on the door: Turn the closet door into a storage space with a hanging shoe organizer. Fill the clear plastic pouches with purses, scarves and caps.

Hook up empty corners: Every room has four, so notch up extra space for hanging things by mounting wall hooks in empty corners. Valet rods work well too.

Rack up on wheels: Freestanding wheeled clothes racks become mini storage units outside closet. They’re never n the way because you can rearrange them with just a push.
