For this closet, savvy storage begins before stepping foot inside. Hats and other accessories are stashed on a canvas shelf that's mounted to back of the door. Larger items hang from orderly hooks just below the shelf.
A semicustom closet system -- available at home improvement centers -- maximizes the storage potential of this standard 8x10-foot master closet. Drawers, shelves, pullouts, clothing rods, shoe racks, drawer organizers, and more accommodate all clothing necessities and accessories with ease. This do-it-yourself closet system rivals a high-end one but without the heavy price tag. Plus, it can be installed in a weekend.
Modular organizers sort socks and belts in this pullout tray. Each item has its own compartment, creating a clean look.

It's simple to declutter your closet with these five must-know organization tricks.
This specially designed hanger has holes to neatly display and store up to 10 scarves. The hanger puts scarf options in plain sight and eliminates rummaging through a drawer to find the perfect one.
Shoes on slanted shelves -- held in place by a metal bar -- are easily accessible. This attractive display simplifies each morning's shoe selection.
Stacked closet rods double storage space by maximizing the height of the closet. Shirts hang from the upper bar while skirts and longer blouses are hung below. Canvas storage boxes squeeze right in to small, deep shelves nearby.
An open shelf functions as a mini grooming station inside the closet. The space features a mirror for applying finishing touches after dressing. A jewelry box, perfume, and a picture frame personalize the space.
Colorful rub-on labels clearly identify the contents inside each drawer. Labeling minimizes search time and ensures you'll return items to their proper storage space after use.
Jewelry and other accessories remain untangled and tidy thanks to drawer organizers. There's even enough room left to stash small clutch purses in the drawer.
Ties stay neat and wrinkle-free with this battery-operated tie rack. With the touch of a button, the rack rotates, making it easy to find a favorite.
A wooden pullout trouser rack holds 10 pairs of freshly pressed pants. The attractive display lets you clearly see each pair. The dowels lift out for easy access.
A drop-zone drawer features a charging station for cell phones and iPods and compartments for watches, sunglasses, and spare change. The charging station contains electronics and chargers in one safe and convenient space.
A pullout valet bar keeps outfits close at hand when dressing or pressing. Hang freshly pressed shirts while choosing the tie that coordinates best.
This built-in ironing board saves floor space and stows vertically between cabinet units. Shelves nearby keep an iron, water mister, and linen spray handy.
