Consider the following storage solutions for small spaces
- Over the door hooks
- Command hooks put at the child’s height
- Corner shelf with hangers
- Over-the-door organizer and roll dress-up items
- Simple wall hooks with a mirror
- Small clothing rack
- Wall mounted towel bar at child’s height and hangers
- Redo an old suitcase that could slide under a bed
- Garment bags stored under the bed
- Under bed storage boxes
- Tension rod between a piece of furniture and wall with hangers
- Wardrobe box
Sometimes you don’t even need a permanent storage solution. Just mounting a mirror with a bin could do the trick as well.
