I designated my bedroom area on the farthest back wall of the room which provided the most privacy and used the space wisely. I inherited a dresser that fortunately, stores a lot of my clothing (shirts, undergarments, socks, jogging pants, tank tops, etc.) and I placed it to the right of my bed.
Adjacent to my bed are 2 walls forming an L-shape, which provides a perfect space to accommodate a closet. Temporarily, until I decide on a more efficient solution, I had to use something to hang my clothes, store my accessories (purses, hats and scarves) and place my shoes. I came up with a simple and affordable solution:
My sister let me use a free-standing multi-level wardrobe that she no longer needed. I use it to hang my pants, jackets, coats and sweaters.
Purses, Hats & Scarves:
Inexpensive storage containers with lids are an easy way to store my purses, hats and scarves. I placed the containers at the bottom of the wardrobe, and since they are clear, I can easily identify the contents.
An easy and inexpensive solution for storing shoes is on shoe racks. The multi-levels provide adequate storage for several pairs of shoes and allow you to easily view shoes at-a-glance.
These easy and affordable solutions are a great way to maximize the space and temporarily create closet storage without using an actual closet.
Since I have accumulated a lot of clothing and shoes, I am using this as a temporary storage solution until I find another option that will serve my needs and be budget-friendly. In the meantime, this system is a helpful alternative.
