No Closet? No Worries; 4 Options for Faking It

That title is an outright lie. No closet = major worries.

If you, poor soul, have somehow willingly committed yourself to living quarters that lack a bona-fide closet space, you will know the great extent of the worries involved in such a scenario. You will have no doubt spent countless nights tossing and turning, wondering “where will I hang my maxis?” and “how on earth will I keep my button-downs freshly pressed?” The thought of the deep wrinkles incurred by having to fold them causing glossy beads of sweat to form on your puckered brow.

First off, let me be the first to say; I’m sorry. I am so deeply sorry for you, my clementine, for your bleak and desperate plight. The voyage ahead will be trying, a true test of your will. But all hope is not lost. True, no substitute will ever be as sweet as the real deal, but there are ways to make up for your closet deficiency. In humblest of opinion, I offer the following:

The Clothes Rack

Not only are these easy to procure or assemble yourself, they are also, as of late, uber trendy. A clothes rack is guaranteed to take you from destitute to tre cute in a matter of moments!

I’ve seen these range from the very basic…

To the awesomely complex…

The Wall-Mounted Pseudo-Closet

If you want something that feels more permanently attached to your dwelling, less free-range and more chained down, than mounting some racks or shelves is your best bet. Again, this can be executed on the small or the large scale.

The Cover-Up

Now, let’s say you like the idea of the aforementioned options, but you feel your clothes deserve an ounce of privacy. A place to call their own. We’re all deserving of at least that. Well, pop on your party hats and get to installing– a cabana or some curtains are sure to fit the bill.

The Lion, The Witch, and The You Better Believe I’m Going to Make Myself Some Closet Space!

Wardrobes are perhaps the most natural and obvious choice for the role of understudy to the closet. Wardrobes range in size and style, so fret not about finding one that will fit within your inexcusably measly square footage.

I do so hope that I have herein offered you a small glimmer of hope, a light at the end of the closet. Get creative, get to hangin’ and whatever you do, never surrender yourself to the lacking.
