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.
When your closet includes a flat surface for folding clothes, you're more likely to keep shirts and sweaters neatly stacked. The pullout "drawer" can also be covered with a towel and used as a place to lay hand-washed sweaters flat while they dry.
You're more likely to get rid of pesky wrinkles if an ironing board is at your fingertips. But having it close by doesn't mean it has to be full view. Like a Murphy Bed, this ironing board folds away into a wall unit until needed.
Jewelry is less likely to get lost and tangled and more likely to get worn when you keep it organized in a shallow drawer. Purchase multicompartment drawer trays and organize by style, color, or type.
