Add a wardrobe rod and hooks
Installing a wardrobe rod (pictured above) will change up the space as you can hang things instead of folding them.
Plus, there are some things that just need to be hung like suits, coats and ironed shirts. You can also consider adding wall hooks to the inside of your wardrobe doors so you can hang things like belts and ties.
If your wardrobe is full and you’re out of space, you can always try making a D.I.Y. wooden coat rack.
Add dedicated shoe storage
Shoes can be one of the trickiest things to store in your wardrobe, simply because there’s often so many of them. There’s a wide range of wardrobe accessories that you can use to address this.
The most practical options include hanging a shelf organiser from a rod or simply buying a shoe rack to sit at the bottom of your wardrobe.
However, if your shoes are a bit smelly for whatever reason, you might want to consider using something with a lid—like a tub.
Or you can have your shoes in plain sight with a D.I.Y. shoe storage rack.
Try vacuum bags
If you live somewhere where the climate changes throughout the year, then you’ll know that what you wear in summer is very different to what you wear in winter.
You can consider using vacuum bags, another great wardrobe accessory, as they help to reduce the amount of space clothes take up in the seasons you’re not using them.
And there’s no need to worry—they’re damp and dust proof, reusable and airtight, and protect against insects, dire, dust, mildew and odours.
Add a sliding wardrobe door
Sliding doors are a stylish way to improve the function of your wardrobe. They make accessing your clothes quicker and help you to save space where there isn’t enough room to swing a hinged door.
Installing them is easy too—just follow our step-by-step guide.
