- Throw Out All of Those Old Clothes You Never Wear Anymore
The first thing that you’ve got to do if you want to make more space in your walk-in closet is to get rid of all those clothes that you don’t wear anymore. You can do this easily on a weekend where you go through your entire closet. We all have those clothes that we never even touch anymore. Maybe they’re too big for you or you’ve outgrown them over the past couple of years. Make sure to get rid of these as soon as you can so you can make tons of more space in your closet.
- Store Your Winter Clothes Out of Sight and Out of Mind
If you’ve kept all of your season’s clothes in the closet even well past that season’s end, then that’s something that you should change. Make sure to store away those winter clothes when you’re not wearing them and you’ll create a ton of space. You can easily buy a storage space to put your winter clothes in until you need them again.
- Use Space Bags to Get a Lot of More Space
If you’ve never used a space bag before, then you’re going to be so surprised at how much space you can create when you use them. Using space bags aren’t going to wrinkle your clothes, but they will squish them into a bag so that they don’t take up as much space. You can even use these with those big winter coats that you don’t use!
- Create A Multiple Hanger System
Have you ever seen those hangers that allow you to hang multiple pieces of clothing on one? These are serious space-savers when it comes to your walk-in closet systems.
- Do Some Renovations to Make More Room
And of course, one of the best ways to create more space in your closet is to literally create more space! You can blast out some walls in a serious renovation project to expand the space in your closet if you have that option. Or you can create some DIY shelves like the one’s we’ll detail in the next point.
- Create Some DIY Shelving Units
You can easily create some DIY shelving units with some random pieces of wood that you may have laying in the basement. These are super easy to do because all you need is a bit of elbow grease and some finishing paint to make this wood look awesome! You can even paint them or put wallpaper over them to make them your own.
- Use All of The Space Available
