8 Clever Small Space Tiny Closet Organizational Hacks
The Mirror with a Hidden Jewellery Box
- Make furniture like mirrors do double duty and store jewellery behind them for easy access.
- Could even store belts or scarves behind the mirror as well, not just necklaces
- Would work for a great small space to make that wall do double-duty as a mirror and a jewellery rack
The Display Closet with Side Shelving

- Use all the vertical space possible for items you don’t reach for on the daily (super high stilettos for instance, or party shoes)
- Use the inside nooks for hanging clothes vertically across the back to store them out of sight for a cleaner look
- Use the floor space available for things you reach for often
- Store seasonal clothing where it is easy to reach and put the out of season clothing in boxes elsewhere to keep the wardrobe uncluttered
- Not sure how practical this is for my own persona life because I have way more items on hangers than I do folded.
Hang jeans on S-Hooks
- Get some S-hooks and hang them by the belt loops!
- Could see all the different washes, the brands, the distressing without having to unfold them one by one or guess when I touch them.
- Might look a bit crumply/messy if you’re the type who likes everything super neat. This above example looks nice but they had to arrange it, I am sure.
Use the vertical space up to the dang ceiling
- I do this in my tiny closet, I put shelves RIGHT TO THE TOP
- Anything I don’t reach for often but need to keep, I store up there, and use a little stool to grab it when I need it.
Use the door to hold shoes on the outside
- You could use space on both sides of the door.
- One is on the outside as you are about to open the closet, and the other space, can be another rack or shelving for scarves, belts, etc, something like this:
- And you could use both sides of that closet door!
Use your closet as your headboard
- Use the bed wall space, and just make it a full-length closet instead.
- Could even have a floating headboard panel thing behind the bed itself if you’re uncomfortable with the empty space behind you.
- Or put a dresser like this kind of short one that wouldn’t be too visually tall for the room, and still tall enough to be a headboard, behind your bed as the headboard, and you get drawer space on the other side as a bonus
Use your bed as actual storage
- Whole dang bed lifts up so you can grab things.
- Only downside is if someone is sleeping on there… and you need clothes.
Find a wall, any wall
- Don’t have an actual closet? Make one.
- A few dressers on the bottom, a rail hanging off a sturdy shelf, and you’re good to go.
FYI, in a bigger closet, I love the idea of using display shelves in a closet so it doesn’t look so crammed and more stylish:
