How to make the most of your wardrobe space

A home move is a great opportunity to reconsider the layout of your wardrobe. When unpacking after moving in, it can be tempting to try and place your clothing back as it was in your old bedroom. But with a bit of forethought, you can maximise your wardrobe space and introduce a fresh layout that means you’ll always know where to find your favourite items.

Overhead storage

  • Use shelf dividers to keep bags and other items neatly stacked
  • Keep similar, smaller items together by using separate storage boxes, e.g. for belts, cufflinks, makeup, scarves, purses, hats and jewellery

Hanging items

  • Use cascading hooks or tiered hangers to optimise your hanging space
  • Invest in an over-the-door shoe organiser
  • Hang belts, scarves, necklaces, ties and other long items inside the doors with stick-on or screw-in hooks


  • Dedicate certain shelves to folded clothes; keep out-of-season items at the back
  • Stack bulky jumpers and large towels no more than four high, and t-shirts and cardigans no more than five high
  • Make the most of your vertical space by investing in wire shelving units


  • Stack clothes vertically rather than horizontally
  • Keep items separated with drawer dividers or mini storage boxes

Floor space

  • Free up floor space with an over-the-door shoe organiser
  • Alternatively, invest in a shoe rack to keep your footwear neat and paired
  • Invest in large storage boxes for bulky items such as bags and out-of-season coats
  • Make use of any extra space with wire mesh drawers or wheeled storage boxes
