Dorm rooms aren't known for their spacious accommodations. In fact, you may find yourself struggling with a tiny room and an even tinier closet. Luckily, there are some ways to store and organize your clothes, shoes and accessories to make your closet seem larger and accommodate all of your items.
Add an extender rod. This can hang either above or below the existing closet rod and create an additional row of space to hang your clothing.
Use shelving. There are shelves you can attach to your closet rod that hang down and can hold folded items like sweaters, pants or even shoes. This gives you more floor space, too.
Loop shower curtain hooks around your closet rods to hold belts, scarves and purses.
Purchase a shoe rack and use it to keep shoes neatly stacked in the bottom of your closet, or try an over the door shoe holder that has plenty of pockets to hold shoes.
Oversized plastic tubs stack up on top of each other and hold folded items that you may not wear every day, like seasonal things or even linens and blankets. These also slide under the bed to make even more room in your closet.
Use special hangers that have several hangers in one and fold up to make room once you are ready to hang them. These create a streamlined effect and allow you to hang up even more clothing without giving up any space.
Buy a men's tie holder and use it to organize tank tops and camisole tops. They will be easier to see and find.
Make sure you use all available space, even if it's just enough room to place a rack or a shelf.
Keep out of season clothes out of the way by keeping them at home or renting a storage unit for off-site storage.
