Do you have far too many clothes? Way too little storage space? Or are both problems leading to wardrobe overflow and bedroom clutter? Our Top 10 Wardrobe Space Saving Ideas are here to help!

Storage space for clothes is finite and precious.

The Hanger Store stocks a wide range of products that are perfect for helping you make the most of your bedroom storage space. However small your wardrobe, however many clothes you have, we have something to help you get your bedroom tidy and clutter-free.

With just one of two of these space saving bedroom storage solutions, you will be able to organise your closet and maximise your wardrobe space.

Here is our Top 10 list of the best space saving tips for your closet:

1. Slimline Velvet Flocked Hangers

One of our best-selling hanger styles, and for good reason.

They are ultra-thin, which allows you to fit more hangers on one rail. The soft-touch velveteen material gives a non-slip quality, which keep garments firmly in place whilst also protecting them from damage. And with their arm notches, trouser bar and tie bar, they are a true multi-purpose hanger.

They are perfect for hanging shirts, jackets, tops, jumpers, trousers, dresses, suits, blouses, dresses and skirts. The tough and durable plastic used to make them also means that more than one item can be stored on each hanger, saving you precious wardrobe space!

Our slim velvet hangers come in 6 different colours and 3 different sizes (including children’s size).

They are undoubtedly one of the most space-efficient and versatile styles of coat hanger available. A wardrobe space saving essential.

2. Hanger Connectors

No matter how narrow your hangers may be, you can still only fit so many on one clothes rail. Or can you?

Hanger connectors are a great way to increase the number of hangers you can fit in one wardrobe and maximise your clothes storage space.

We stock an innovative range of products that will allow you to put more hangers to use than you thought possible.

Our magic metal multi-hanger connectors have hooks for 6 hangers, allowing you to effectively store six times as many clothes in the same space as one regular hanger.

Our velvet hanger connectors allow you to hang as many additional hangers as you like. A hugely versatile and cost-effective solution. And for those looking to save even more money, our white/natural plastic hanger connectors are priced to suit even the tightest budget.

3. Hanger Storage Bag

Hangers not in use so often get left on the rail, taking up valuable space and cluttering up your wardrobe. Worse still, they can end up on the floor or stuffed into a cupboard.

Coat hangers can seem impossible to store neatly, which is why our hanger storage organiser bag is such an essential solution for a tidy bedroom and closet.

When not in use, it is fully collapsible and takes up virtually no space. When in use, it allows stacking and storage of virtually all types of hanger.

It is made from a durable black canvas, which will give you years of use whilst looking neat and smart in the corner of your wardrobe.

4. Multi-Bar Trouser Hangers

Our 3-bar velvet trouser hangers have an ultra-narrow profile, so take up minimal wardrobe space. They also allow you to hang three pairs of jeans or trousers on just the one hanger, making great use of clothes rail space.

In addition to trousers, these hangers are great for storing other items without arms or straps. This includes the likes of sheets, scarves, shawls, and ties.

5. Vacuum Storage Bags

If you’ve never used vacuum storage bags, they are guaranteed to make you think “why haven’t I been using these all my life?!”.

All those old clothes, duvets, bed sheets, skiing jackets and blankets that you haven’t used for years, but just can’t get rid of, can be compressed and easily stored in these bags.

Although some things like natural fibres, fluffy items and leather are not suitable for long-term storage in vacuum bags, the amount of space that can be easily saved is astonishing.

They are perfect for moving house, homes with limited storage, and even travel when your suitcase isn’t quite big enough.

Our vacuum storage bags can be compressed using any vacuum cleaner, or with the hand pump included.

Unquestionably one of the best and most effective wardrobe space saving ideas.

6. Wardrobe Organisers

If you’re in need of shelves and compartments to help keep your bedroom tidy and organised, hanging wardrobe organisers are a great solution.

Hanging organisers are easily suspended from any clothes rail, avoiding the need for a whole new wardrobe unit. They are fully collapsible, and in a matter of seconds can be transformed into a whole new shelving system.

We stock two styles: a 6-shelf hanging organiser with 6 generous storage compartments, and a 7-shelf organiser, with three full size compartments and 8 smaller half-size compartments. Both are available in black or cream.

They can be used in place of drawers or shelves, keeping groups of clothes organised and in one place. They are also ideal for items that are not suitable for hanging or drawer storage, such as shoes.

7. Multi-Tier Shoe Racks

Shoes are a pain to store. That’s a fact of life.

They can be messy, unsightly, and take up way too much space.

Our multi-tier shoe racks offer a simple, effortless, and versatile shoe storage solution.

With light yet strong stainless steel poles, easy-to-use plastic connectors, and durable non-woven shelving material, our shoe racks come flat packed and are easy to assemble.

Also, shelves can be easily added or taken away as required. This means you do not need to have any more shelves than you require, and they can be easily moved around the house.

We sell them in 3, 5 or 10 shelf packs. But no matter which on you pick, they can be expanded or reduced at a later date.

8. Tie & Accessory Hangers

Storing ties in a drawer is not ideal. It takes up valuable storage space, and the ties are prone to getting lost or creased.

The same can be said for other accessories, such as belts and scarves.

We stock a range of high-quality tie and accessory hangers, which help you keep your accessories tidy, organised, and all in one place for when you need them.

It may seem small and simple, but getting your accessories organised is one of the easiest and most effective wardrobe space saving storage ideas.

9. Flat Wooden Hangers

Wooden hangers cannot be beaten when it comes to appearances. They look fantastic. However, they are not always a great solution when it comes to maximising clothes storage space. They are slightly thicker than most plastic hangers and are often angled, taking up precious space.

If you want wooden hangers, but still want to make the most of your clothes hanging space, we have a range of flat wooden coat hangers.

For example, our 44cm flat wooden suit hanger is popular, versatile, and great value.

And for a slightly different, more contemporary look, our Scandinavian-inspired range of laminated hangers is both stylish and space efficient.

10. Hanger Clips

Hangers are essential for clothes storage. But like anything, they take up space, and so you do not want to buy and store any more than you strictly need.

Our velvet hanger clips are a clever solution. We have already sung the virtues of our space saving velvet hangers, and these clips allow you to easily turn these hangers into a clip hanger, perfect for hanging garments such as skirts. This saves you space, by removing the need to buy a whole set of clip hangers. It is also a far cheaper option.

We hope our Top 10 Wardrobe Space Saving Ideas help you organise your closet and maximise your wardrobe space.
