When working with an odd-shaped closet, it’s best to get creative and try different storage techniques in order to maximize space and create order. These ideas can be translated in any space but when combined will take an odd shaped closet to organizing bliss.
- Oftentimes, these closets will have a sloping wall (or two) which is when I’ll put the EKBY RISET to use from IKEA. These shelf brackets turn an unusable wall into a storage dream.
- Corner shelves are also fantastic for making every inch of space count.
- I’m also a big fan of over-the-door shoe organizers to store bite-sized categories. Even though the room may be odd-shaped, chances are, you’re working with a standard door.
- Hooks are useful in any room but can be especially helpful with a closet that is a little off.
- Opt for free standing shelving units that are shorter on depth. This allows the unit to fit just about anywhere–even your odd shaped closet.
- I love the ease of a rolling cart that can be easily pulled out and accessed in a more open area and put back when not in use.
