1. The curtain effect

This is indeed one of the simplest ways to hide the clutter in your bedroom. Fix some rails and shelves to your walls for perfect storage and then create a vintage inspired dressing room with gorgeous floor sweeping curtains.

2. Racks, rails and drawers

If you have an empty wall in your bedroom that you would like to utilise more efficiently, then add some racks, rails and drawers in various heights. Store everything from coats to shoes in a nifty spot and never be disorganised again.

3. Drawers and boxes

Another easy way to get your closet looking amazing is to add some simple drawers and boxes for storage. This will allow your essentials and accessories to be safely tucked away without crowding up your dressing table.

4. The built-in option

You may have an unused room in your home that will make an amazing storage space for your clothing, how about going for some built-in cupboards to get yourself organised. However, this job may require the assistance of a professional joiner, so bear that in mind.

5. Fitted

6. You can never have enough rails

Remember that getting your closet organised, may be as simple as adding a few extra rails for your hangers. These will ensure that your clothing is neatly stored so you won't have to iron them again before wearing.

7. Sliding doors

8. Open dressing room

A closet doesn't necessarily need doors, go for an open closet design to showcase your sophisticated and stylish taste in clothing. It's a functional and practical idea too.

9. For the attic

Just because your extra room has a sloped roof, doesn't mean you can't use the space available to make your dream closet. Consider building the closet along the decline of the ceiling and fit your clothing items as and where needed.

10. Assess your needs

It is imperative to think about what your storage needs are before you begin with your closet revamp plan. A simple shoe rack could be the first way to solve your space problem, and you won't be tripping over those boots anymore.

11. Go for a simple cupboard

If installing a ready-made cupboard seems like a good weekend project for you and you think it will help with your organising issues, then it may just be the most cost effective way to get your home in great shape.

12. The hanging choice

If you need a closet idea for your son's bedroom, then opt for these hanging rails and simple shelves. The design will remain trendy throughout the years, so you won't need to revamp the room any time soon.

13. Retractable

Retractable shelves are an excellent choice for a closet, allowing you to see your clothing more easily and mix and match items for the best outfit. It's also an ideal choice for those shorter people who have trouble reaching to the back of the closet.

14. Use your corners

You may have to think out the box to get the most out of your home storage, and this means utilising each and every corner to get your closet in perfect order.

15. Simpy styled

We end this Ideabook with a look at a simple wardrobe. This can be made to fit your home, purchased as a DIY piece of furniture or if you are really creative and adventurous, then how about building it yourself?
