Expand Your Wardrobe Space with DIY Closets

Maximize Your Rod Space

Closets are first and foremost about hanging items – which means you need plenty of space for the things you regularly wear and that really need to hang. Your best suits and dresses and any out-of-season coats should have a different home (whether it’s a coat closet, a spare room closet, or garment storage in your attic). Your bedroom closet is a place for the shirts, pants, and suits you wear on a daily basis. Once you’ve figured out what you actually need in your closet, see if a second rod at a lower or higher level would make it easier to keep clothes separated by category and within reach.
