Turn your hall closet into a giant coat rack - If the single tension rod in your hall closet doesn’t cut it when it comes to storing your collection of jackets and coats, get rid of it. Take advantage of that precious vertical wall space by installing as many hooks as you want. You’ll be able to store at least twice as many coats and bags as before, and you won’t have to rely on mismatched hangers to do it. And in case you’re wondering, here’s how to easily organize everything in your closet.
Hang a shelf above your coat rack for extra storage - This entryway storage tip sounds obvious, but it’s worth repeating: A single shelf (above a coat rack or on its own) does wonders for an entryway. Use the self to store mail, sunglasses, purses, or baskets full of winter gear. Turn a closet into a storage nook - The House of Smiths breaks down this minor renovation process in full. The basic idea is this: With some resourcefulness and patience, you can transform a small, dingy closet that doesn’t meet your needs into a cool, functional storage nook. Did we mention this little nook has coat hooks, mail organizers, wooden shoe crates, and a comfy seat? What more could you want?
