Clothes, shoes, bags, belts and other accessories…they are objects we cannot live without and which we keep buying, without parting with the old ones. After some years, we find our homes crowded by all these items, and, as wardrobes and closets are filled up, we end up leaving clothes and bags on chairs, sofas and even on the bed. However, if we use some ingenious closet storage ideas, most of these objects can be neatly fitted inside the closet, clearing up the space in the room.

Let us discover some of the easiest and most space saving closet arrangements:

#1 Clever Partitions

If you leave the closet area without shelves and partitions, you will only make use of the floor and, possibly, the inner walls. However, with a rigorous partition system, you can create custom spaces for hangers, shoes, bags and folded clothes. Look how many items are arranged in this closet!
