Expand Your Wardrobe Space with DIY Closets

Build Along a Wall

If you have more clothes than closet, your best option may be to give up your closet entirely and, instead, install a system along a full open wall. This gives you plenty of space for rods, shelves, organizers, and drawers; hang a curtain in front of it if you think you’ll want to hide it from view sometimes. Check your local home improvement or organizational store for DIY kits that let you plan and build a custom unit. Then turn your now-spare closet into a nook for your desk, a reading area, or even a spot for your dressers to free up more floor space within your room.
