Large or small, a well-planned closet seems to organize itself. To maximize the space you have, identify ways to effectively hang, fold, and corral everything inside -- while keeping it visible and accessible. Sound impossible? It's not -- even if you're starting with a closet far less equipped than the made-to-order system shown here.
Wherever there's clothing, there's dirty laundry. So it makes sense to keep a hamper close at hand, where you can toss dirty clothes as soon as you take them off. Designate a space to keep soiled clothing off the floor and out of site. A deep pullout bin makes a great built-in hamper.
