25 Foolproof Closet Organization Ideas for Any Wardrobe
What’s scarier than a closet bogeyman? A closet clutterbug, of course! If your bedroom wardrobe is feeling extra spooky these days, look to these foolproof closet organization ideas and tips to create a clean, stylish, and functional haven for your clothes and accessories. Everything you need to know about how to organize a closet and get started on your own is below.
Did you know? Decluttering is step one when organizing any part of your home. You can use a PODS portable storage container as a dedicated sorting space while you decide what stays and what goes!
But first, we know what you’re wondering: What is the best way to organize my closet? The answer is whatever works best for you. Successful closet organization typically goes like this: Get rid of clutter, build or install your chosen compartments or shelving, and create a specific space for each type of clothing and accessory. Like any organization project, the goal is to create a personalized but repeatable system that you can maintain over time.
Here are 10 clever closet organization tips from vlogger Shea Whitney to inspire you:
Closet Organization Ideas — FAQs
Q: How can I organize my small closet?
A: A tiny closet only needs a few upgrades to feel a thousand times more functional. For best results, focus on three main organization tips for small spaces: efficient folding methods, utilization of previously unused space, and dedicated sections for certain items. (And, hey, a biannual purge doesn’t hurt, either.) Additional small-closet organization ideas are covered below.
Q: How do I organize my closet on a low budget?
A: You really don’t need to spend big bucks to make a functional closet. In fact, for a zero-cost closet upgrade, start by only revamping your organizing methods. This means downsizing your wardrobe, rotating seasonal clothing, and using specialized folding and stacking methods — all tasks you can easily turn into long-term habits at no charge to you.
If you’re okay spending a little cash on closet organization, start by shopping for affordable bins or baskets and easy-to-assemble closet systems with simple designs. A few soft boxes, rack dividers, and damage-free hooks won’t run you more than $100, for example. From there, you can DIY all kinds of closet organizers just by repurposing common household items outlined below.
Q: How can I organize my closet without shelving?
A: A great way to organize a closet that doesn’t have built-in shelving (and without having to build new shelving) is to invest in hanging shelf organizers. These vertical canvas “shelves” simply hook onto the closet rod, providing instant cubby-like storage that’s perfect for anything from shoes and purses to sweaters and T-shirts. Some even come with cute canvas drawers.
Q: What is the most efficient way to organize a closet?
A: The most efficient way to organize a closet is to pull everything out; sort items into specific categories; declutter what you don’t use, need, or want; and then put everything back in a way that allows you to find what you’re looking for quickly and easily. Adding canvas storage boxes, hanging shelves, and even low-lying shoe racks can be helpful, depending on what you have in your closet.
When it comes to organizing the items themselves, there are several ways to go about it. You could hang articles of clothing up based on length (shortest to longest), arrange items with other like items and color-coordinate within each section, or you could even hang entire outfits up together (blouse, slacks, and matching necklace) for a quick morning routine. Play around with it and find what works best for you.
Q: What order do you hang clothes in a closet?
A: There’s no one right way to hang your clothes in a closet, but there should be some logic to how you hang them. Grouping them in a way that makes sense to you is the best way to maintain your organization. It can look like hanging all of your short-sleeve tops, long-sleeve blouses, dresses, and pants in their own section; putting your most-worn items at the left (or most accessible) side of your closet; or hanging items by color, with each color grouped together (you can even color code within a subsection of shirts or pants).
Q: What clothes should go on shelves?
A: Any clothing can go on a shelf, but not all pieces are best suited for folding. Pants are easy to fold and place on a shelf — especially denim jeans and spandex leggings — while your linen dresses and wrinkle-prone work shirts are best hung up instead. It may not matter much if your cotton gym T-shirts get some wrinkles, so you can fold those into a neat stack rather than allow them to take up precious hanger real estate. Besides that, your best bet is to fold wrinkle-free fabrics, like polyester, wool, spandex, denim, rayon, and cashmere, to name a few.
Q: How do I organize my closet with too much stuff?
A: To organize a closet with too much stuff, the best way to start is by decluttering. Go through your entire wardrobe and separate everything into keep, donate, and toss piles. Once you’ve narrowed things down, you can take some of the bulk out of your closet by installing a second rod to hang double the articles of clothing.
Q: How do you design a closet layout?
A: The perfect closet layout depends on the wardrobe it’s trying to accommodate, so first you need to take stock of what you have. A giant shoe collection? Try floating shelves or an over-the-door organizer. A million sweaters? Use baskets and cloth storage cubes on the shelf above your closet rod or on the floor below. A bevy of handbags? Suspend them from some “S” hooks or display them on an étagère out in your bedroom. Whatever you do, don’t try to make a closet system fit your wardrobe — design the layout around your wardrobe.
Our Top 25 Closet Organization Ideas
Now that we’ve answered a few frequently asked questions, let’s dive into our 25 Closet Organization Ideas.
1. Start With a Good Purge.
The key to any home organization project is to downsize and declutter first. Think of it like pre-organizing for your organizing. A good decluttering cuts down on the number of items you have to find spots for, frees up new space for more important items, and helps you to put yourself in a new Zen-like state of mind for moving forward.
Here are a few ways to gain closet space and reduce clutter:
- Tackle big real-estate items first. If you have better space elsewhere, move things like vacuums, camping gear, and large suitcases to a guest bedroom, basement, hallway closet, or garage.
- Make three piles labeled “Keep,” “Donate,” and “Toss” to sort your existing closet items.
- Donate clothes, jewelry, and other accessories you haven’t worn in the last six months, and toss damaged or unusable items.
- For “Keep” items, divide further by seasonality. Unless you’re in the thick of fall festivities, Halloween costumes and winter gear will go elsewhere, for example.
Pro Tip: There’s one more category to keep in mind while you’re decluttering, and that’s “sell.” Websites like Poshmark and eBay make it easy to “trade in” gently used clothing and accessories for cold, hard cash — which can make parting with those old bridesmaid dresses and costume jewelry that much easier.
2. Utilize Other Spaces in Your Home.
It’s easy to assume a bedroom closet is your only option for storing clothes and shoes — and to forget how convenient it might be to utilize an office or guest room as a walk-in closet. Take a look at all available space and shelving in your home to assess your closet potential. Are you actually using your whole office for work, or could one of its corners be repurposed as a wardrobe? Would your bedroom feel more clean and relaxing if you took out your dresser and clothes rack? Something as simple as switching from a low bed frame to one 14 inches off the ground can create an additional 30+ square feet of underbed storage.
3. Use On-Site Storage to Declutter or Move Items out of the House.
Tackling a big declutter or organization project? You might need to upgrade your storage arsenal. Treat yourself to a portable storage container to help sort items without cluttering the rest of your house. It’s like having a magic closet catch-all right in your driveway! Storage containers can be delivered and picked up on your schedule, so you don’t have to be in any rush to make decisions. And the best part? Once you’ve figured out what stays and what goes, simply leave the things you want to store in your container, and PODS will pick it up and keep it at a local Storage Center for as long as you want.
4. Put a Dresser Below Your Hanging Items.
When considering how to organize a closet, a simple yet effective upgrade to any closet (especially a small one) is to place a dresser under your hanging items. This frees up space in your bedroom and amplifies your storage options. It also doesn’t require installation, like other closet systems; just place it where you want it and add your stuff!
Pro Tip: Dressers can be heavy — especially the solid wood kind. Remember to remove all the drawers before moving it into your closet, and get some help if you need it.
5. Get an Additional Clothes Rack.
If you’re working with a super small space or no closet at all, consider investing in a freestanding clothes rack. A tall closet system can be placed neatly in the corner of your bedroom or studio, while a shorter design can be placed under your closet rod to double up your existing closet space. If having a clothing rack in your bedroom makes the space feel too cluttered, consider getting a stylish folding room divider to block it from view.
6. Use Dividers to Create Zones.
Whether yours is an itty-bitty bedroom closet or a Mariah Carey-style walk-in, look to closet dividers as a cheap and versatile way to organize your clothes and accessories. As you purchase or collect containers, rack tags, and shelf dividers, consider methods for choosing what to place in each closet zone:
- Divide items by type: Jeans, sweaters, dresses, etc.
- Arrange items based on length and bulkiness: Tops go on lower racks or shorter shelves, pants go on a hook rack or mid-level shelf, and long dresses and bulky coats go on higher racks and spacious shelves.
- If you’re a visual organizer, subdivide items by color (in rainbow order, of course, if you’re anything like The Home Edit ladies): Remember ROY G. BIV — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
- Keep high-use items easy to access: Favorite shoes and sneakers to the front, please.
- Tuck low-use items out of the way: Raincoats in the back (unless you live in Seattle).
- Hang accessories on walls and hangers, or place them on their own shelves: You can dedicate a single hanger to a dozen scarves, stack hats to save space, and roll belts up on a shelf to make them easy to find. Be wary of too many accessories, though. If you find you rarely use something, chuck it.
7. Install Drawers and Shelving.
One key for how to organize a closet is creating a system of hanging items, drawers, and shelves. New drawers and closet shelving are a fab upgrade to your closet space — and may be easier to install than you think. Visit your hardware store to shop lumber, pegboards, slide-out bins, and hardware for DIY projects, or purchase a prefab shelving system for all-in-one installation.
Looking for a simpler way to get shelves in your closet? Ikea has shelving units in multiple sizes that you can mix and match to create your perfect closet. Assembly is required, but it’s easy-peasy.
8. Expand Your Closet With a Classy Wardrobe.
If you just don’t have enough space for all of your outfits and accessories, that’s fine. It’s not you, it’s your closet. Still, you can expand your closet space with a freestanding (and classic) wardrobe. Place it beside your existing closet or elsewhere in your room to add an additional 50 percent or more hanging space. Just try not to break up clothing categories between the wardrobe and your closet — you don’t want to have to walk back and forth trying to find something to wear, after all. Instead, consider putting all of your jackets or all of your evening dresses in the wardrobe, and keeping the “everyday” items in your closet.
9. Use Wall Space to Hold Smaller Items.
Once you’ve maximized all your dividers, shelves, racks, and drawers, look to your walls to store jewelry and accessories. Here’s how to make this space more functional:
- Add a small towel rack with hooks to hold jewelry.
- Stick on clear plastic file holders or spice racks to hold beauty products.
- Secure wire bins on damage-free hooks to hold accessories and small clothing items.
- Hang a tight length of string (or several lengths) between two nails on your wall for hanging earrings and necklaces. Just make sure the line is tight enough to keep the earrings from slipping toward the middle.
10. Tackle Your Shoe Situation.
Footwear takes up a lot of closet space, but there are plenty of ways to reconfigure things so you have more space. Here are just a few of our favorite ideas for organizing your shoes:
- Raise them off the ground with a rack or shelf for a tidier look.
- Display them on pre-built shelves by color, type, or size.
- Use shoe stacking bins as an easy DIY purchase that doesn’t involve construction and fits nicely below your hanging items.
- Use over-the-door shoe racks. (You can also place these on the back of your bedroom door to save even more closet space.)
- Fill boots with socks to help them keep their shape.
11. Embrace Better Folding and Hanging Methods (One of Our Favorite Closet Organization Ideas).
Once you’ve sectioned off different areas of your closet, it’s time to try all your new hanging and folding techniques. You have valuable space in all those drawers, shelves, and boxes; now it’s time to make it shine!
Here are some tips to make the contents of your closet feel elegant and functional:
- Use stacking methods for clothes on dividers and shelves, but not in drawers.
- For drawers, use the vertical or file folding method. (Thanks, Marie Kondo!)
- Use special hangers to consolidate scarves, ties, and belts.
- Nest bras inside of each other to save drawer space.
- Store smaller bags inside bigger bags.
- Hang pants on a hook organizer, keeping them wrinkle-free and out of your rack and shelf real estate.

12. Give DIY Vacuum Sealing a Try.
When it’s time to store bulky items like winter clothes and bedding, look to the space-saving powers of a vacuum seal. You don’t need to buy special tools or containers for this trick; some drawstring trash bags and a home vacuum work just fine.
Store your packed vacuum-sealed items on the top shelf or back of your closet, or even under your bed. If you’d rather keep those spaces free for more frequently used items, place your vacuum-sealed sweaters and comforters in storage until you’re ready to rotate them back into use.
13. Organize With Reusable Labels.
One way to make your sorting efforts stick (get it?) is to label everything! DIY tags make it so much easier to see what goes where and keep your closet organized — and at virtually no cost to your organizing budget. The best part? You can make the labels say whatever you want them to say. Want to keep your concert T-shirts together? Have a box of socks without mates? A collection of love notes from your boyfriend in first grade? Put a label on them! No judgment here!
14. Make Future Decluttering Efforts a Breeze.
Place a distinct (i.e., brightly colored) hanger at the front of each section of your closet. Every time you wear something and wash it, hang it up in front of that hanger. After a few months, it’ll be pretty easy to see what got worn and what didn’t. For a quick and simple purge, take everything behind the brightly colored hangers and sell or donate it. Not only will this help to free up space, but it’ll make finding your daily fit a breeze, since your closet will only house things you actually wear.
15. Add a Trash Can and Donation Bin to the Space.
Once everything is placed in your newly organized closet, put a small trash can and bin labeled “Donate” in the space. If you have the room, these will help remind you to stay organized and keep things tidy for months to come!
16. Come In With the New (and Out With the Old).
Once you’ve gone to the trouble of getting your closet fully organized, you’ll want to keep it that way, right? A clever trick is to get rid of something old any time you bring something new into your closet. New sweater? Great! Now, let’s find something old that you haven’t worn in a while and donate it.
17. Invest in Matching Hangers.
I, for one, have been known to keep hangers that clothes are sold on, like the plastic ones from my local Target or T.J. Maxx. The result is a diverse mix of flimsy plastic, sturdy plastic, and wooden hangers of all different colors hanging in my closet. While reusing those hangers might feel economical, it’s best to leave them at the store. Invest in uniform hangers to help your closet not only look organized, but to ensure everything hangs neatly and nothing gets lost in the fray on a thin plastic hanger.
18. Use the Space Above Your Closet Rod.
What your closet may lack in horizontal space, it just might make up for in vertical space. If you have a high-up shelf above the rod where your clothes hang, make use of it by placing boxes of vacuum-sealed clothing, out-of-season shoes, or carefully stacked baseball hats in plastic bins or cloth storage cubes.
19. Don’t Forget About “S” Hooks.
This small, curvy, metal tool is tried-and-true. Using “S” hooks in your closet is a simple way to create new hangers in seconds. Use them for purses, string them through the belt loops of your pants, tote bags, or whatever else in your closet needs a little hook to stay off the floor!
20. Make Use of Your Off-Duty Suitcase.
I always have a big suitcase stashed away somewhere in my apartment, which serves no purpose when I’m not taking a big trip. Use your bulky suitcase to store clothing you don’t wear or need to access very often, like bulky winter sweaters during the summer or that outfit you only wear for interviews.
21. Don’t Sleep on Underbed Storage.
We touched on using other places in your home to store clothing, but it must be emphasized: The square footage under your bed is your best friend. Get some low, long plastic bins with wheels attached to the bottom, and fill them with shoes, rolled-up pants, bulky sweaters, or whatever else is taking up too much space in your closet. When you need something, just roll one out and voila!
22. Be Generous With Bins and Baskets.
Beyond using cloth storage cubes to stash vacuum-packed clothing on the shelf above your closet rod, you can also place bins and baskets on the floor below your clothes. In lieu of an entire dresser, which you may not have room for, you can use baskets to store bulky sweaters or rolled-up jeans that may otherwise take up too much closet rod real estate.
23. Hang a Second Rod.
Another great way to make sure you’re using the full capacity of your closet’s vertical space? Install a double-rod system. You may have to raise the height of the existing one to make room for a second rod about halfway down. But when you do, bang! You now have twice the space to hang blouses and pants — plus, you can even group tops near the bottoms you tend to wear with them.
24. Do Away With Doors.
Is your closet door restricting your ability to organize? Maybe the closet is so small, your clothes are bunching up against the door and hangers are getting stuck, or maybe leaving a path for the door to open and close means you can’t fit that extra wardrobe or clothing rack in your room. If a door is cramping your style, simply take it off the hinges and put it in storage (either in a facility like secure PODS Storage Center or somewhere else in your home). You can cover the doorway with a stylish curtain or leave it open and show off your pristinely organized closet.
25. Put Up Some Bedroom Shelves.
If you’ve absolutely maxed out the space inside your closet, consider installing some floating shelves or a chic étagère outside of your closet. There, you can display any bags, shoes, hats, or other accessories that are actually pretty enough to double as decor. Bonus: You’ll never forget to wear them, since they’re out in the open.

15 Closet Organization Ideas for Whipping Your Closet Into Shape!
Before our oldest daughter comes back from her study abroad program and brings her suitcases of stuff with her, I set out to add some organization to her bedroom closet. It’s a typical closet with a single rod and shelf, leaving a lot of wasted space. My goal was to add more hanging and storage space so she has a spot for all of her clothing without it overflowing into other rooms and closets in our house.
Today I’m sharing 15 closet organization ideas from this closet makeover and other closet organization projects I’ve done in the past. Hopefully you’ll find a tip or two to help you whip one of the closets in your own home into shape! Let’s get to it… (post includes affiliate links; full disclosure statement available )
1. Install a Closet System
If you have any closets that are like my daughter’s with a single rod and shelf, installing a closet system can add a ton of usable space. My two favorite closet systems are IKEA’s PAX system and The Container Store’s Elfa system. The PAX system involves a series of wardrobe frames with customizable interiors. You can add hanging rods, drawers, shelves, and other specialized add-ons. It’s what we installed in our primary bedroom closet in our previous home:
Check out my IKEA PAX Closet System Review post for tons more pics and details.
The Container Store’s Elfa system is a totally different concept. It involves hanging a top track high up along the length of your closet and then adding vertical rails that a variety of customizable components hang from. It’s the closet system that we installed in our primary bedroom in our current home last year:
Visit my Elfa Closet System post for all the details of this before and after closet makeover. The Elfa system is also what I used in my daughter’s closet makeover, taking it from this:
It’s nothing fancy, but I was able to double the amount of shelving and add about 60% more hanging space, which is a definite win!
Which of the two closet systems is better? They both have pros and cons so it depends on the size of your closet and what features are most important to you. If you’re trying to decide between the two, check out the end of my post on our Elfa closet system where I share a detailed comparison between the PAX and Elfa closet systems.
As a less expensive option, ClosetMaid now has a system similar to Elfa with excellent reviews that you can find . I’ve also had many of you tell me that you love your closet systems from EasyClosets – you can explore that option .
Along with your organizing your closet, you may want to get to work on your bedroom too! See my post on bedroom organization ideas for 15 simple organizing solutions!
2. Corral Caps with a Simple Hanger
When I organized our hall closet a few months ago, I wanted to find a better solution to how we store the baseball caps that were taking over our closet. I found that’s a simple, inexpensive Velcro strip with hanging clips that you wrap around your own hanger:
It holds ten caps and keeps them neatly organized and easy to grab:
3. Store Pillows and Blankets Dust-Free
The top shelf of your closet is perfect for storing bedding that you don’t need to access on a daily basis, like extra pillows and blankets. I’m loving as a solution for storing them dust-free. Each bag is the perfect size for storing three sleeping pillows:
or multiple quilts or blankets. I also love that they have handles on both sides:
I use these bags in our linen closet too! See my post on linen closet organization ideas for more tips on organizing that space.
4. Hang Your Totes and Clutches
My daughter has a LOT of handbags, totes, and clutches so I wanted to add some closet organizers that will keep them neatly in her closet (instead of on the floor 😉). One organizer I found and love is that hangs under wire shelves. There are an endless number of things you could use it for, including clutches or small crossbody purses:
It’s a great way to put space that would otherwise be wasted to use (for this closet, my plan is for a few tote bags to be stored beneath them):
5. Take Advantage of Behind-the-Door Space
If you have hinged closet doors, there are a ton of behind-the-door storage solutions. They can be as simple as that you can use to hold a robe, pajamas, or clothes that you plan to rewear:
It’s been an awesome solution for behind the door in my girls’ bathroom. Check out my post on small bathroom storage ideas for more details and bathroom storage ideas.
6. Stack Up Your Shoes
There are a lot of ways to add shoe storage to your closet, even if you’re tight on space. One option is to stack them on the bottom of the closet using labeled shoe boxes or clear stackable boxes:
If you’d rather store your shoes in your entryway or mudroom, see my post on entryway shoe storage ideas for several other storage options.
7. Place Large Artwork In Portfolios
If you have kids (or grandkids, nieces, etc.) then you probably have a stash of childhood artwork from over the years. Smaller art pieces can be stored in archival storage boxes like but what do you do with oversized artwork? I recently bought two of which are perfect for the job! They’re very sturdy, snap shut at the top, and have a handle for easy carrying:
I filled one with my girls’ special childhood artwork and the other with my youngest daughter’s recent art (she’s in art school) and slid them behind my daughter’s long hanging clothes on the back wall of the closet. It’s the perfect spot for them to be stored without getting bent or taking up much space.
8. Divide Up Your Shelves
Once you get your closet organized, you want it to STAY organized – shelf dividers can help with that! If you have a long shelf for storing sweaters or other clothes, over time your originally neat stacks tend to morph into an unorganized pile. Shelf dividers can help get your stacks organized and keep them that way.
They are pressure-mounted with prongs on both ends that you slip through the wire shelf slats so they grip onto the bottom of the front and back edges:
They also come in a 12” wide size for 12″ deep shelves.
9. Save Space With Slim Velvet Hangers
When we moved from Ohio to Connecticut, we went from a large walk-in closet to a tiny shared one, and Jeff and I literally couldn’t fit all of our clothes in it. I swapped out our hangers for slim velvet hangers that used to be known as “huggable” hangers, and I was amazed by how much more hanging space it gave us! Ever since then, I’ve been a convert and use in every closet. Not only do they save space, but going from a bunch of mismatched hangers:
is easy on the eyes too 🙂.
10. Loop Your Scarves
Our home doesn’t have drawers for scarves and other winter gear like our previous one did, so I needed a new storage solution. I tried out and it’s perfect for the job with over 20 wire loops for holding scarves. I pulled each scarf through a loop to the front and then back through the loop below it:
Along with scarves, this organizer would also be great for holding stockings and tights.
11. Tackle Your Ties With a Hanger
It’s a great way to be able to see every tie at a glance while not taking up much closet space.
12. Box Up Your Belts
or you can stand it upright to take up less of a footprint. If you’re going to have your belt organizer facing forward lengthwise on a shelf or in a drawer, I love the look and functionality of .
13. Make Use of Every Inch With Baskets and Bins
If you have high ceilings (9′ and up), there’s a good chance that your closet has a lot of unused space at the top of it. This is the perfect spot for placing baskets and bins to hold things that you don’t use on a daily basis. Our walk-in bedroom closet has 10′ ceilings, so when I remodeled the closet, I added additional shelving up top with several of and it has given us SO much more storage space for things like travel accessories, extra bedding, tall heels that I only use a few times a year, etc.:
I like that they’re lightweight but still hold their shape and they don’t have any rough edges that could snag anything inside.
When you have bins high up like this, be sure to label everything so it’s easy to know which one to grab at a glance! I used that you can clip on to the front of any bin that’s not super thick. I also found some much less expensive bin clips that are the same exact size .
14. Place Your Jewelry in Pockets
If you need storage space for jewelry, a double sided hanging jewelry organizer like is awesome! With 75+ clear pockets, you can store a ton of jewelry while taking up hardly any space:
They come in multiple sizes and colors and include options such as loops for hanging necklaces.
15. Light up Your Closet
If you already have an overhead light in your closet but wish that it was motion-activated, there’s a solution for that too! With my Caséta by Lutron smart lighting system, I can add a Caséta Motion Sensor above the door to a closet so that every time I walk in, the lights automatically go on (and they go off automatically too once it senses the space is vacant).
It’s different from motion sensors that are in the light switch itself because you can place the motion sensor anywhere you want (our closet light switch is outside of the closet, so if the sensor was in the switch, our closet light would go on every time we stepped foot in the bathroom). In a standard closet, you can place it inside, facing the closet doors so that it activates the closet light every time the doors are opened. You can read more about our Caséta by Lutron smart lighting system in .
And with that, this post is a wrap! If your spring cleaning involves cleaning out a closet, I hope you found a few ideas in this post to help make it a more organized and functional space!
