Storage Ideas For Small Spaces

If you don’t want to create a new piece of furniture or you simply don’t have the space, consider hanging hooks or a rod somewhere to store dress-up clothes. Command hooks are a great way to have a temporary storage solution that your child can reach.

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.
