Expand Your Wardrobe Space with DIY Closets

Add Shelving and Drawers

A rod alone can leave you with lots of wasted space, both above and below. Take advantage of the depth and height of your closet by installing drawers below your clothes, where you can store scarves, underwear, t-shirts, and tank tops, and by adding shelving above for shoes, bags, hats, and other accessories. Once you give everything a place, it will be much easier to keep things where they belong.
