(library ladders, DIY library ladder)
The closet is where we store some of our most treasured belongings. Unfortunately, this
space can also become a cluttered mess. This especially holds true for avid shoppers and
pack rats. Redesigning your closet with a few added features, such as a library ladder, could
make a world of difference. Keeping your things in order will make them easier to find and it’ll
help keep unwanted pests far and away. To give you some ideas on how you can organize
your closet, here are some DIY options.
Build a Shoe Rack
This can be quite useful if you have a plethora of shoes littering your closet floor (and possibly
underneath your bed). Gather all of your shoes together and place them neatly on the rack for
easier selection. With this, you won’t have to frantically look around the house for your
Build Cubby Holes
You used them in elementary school and now you can put them to use as an adult. Building
cubby holes can be a great way to store additional items you may have in your closet that
don’t have a place. This includes purses, ties, shawls, scarves and the like. You could also
put shoes in them, if you ran out of space on your shoe rack. If the cubby holes are built tall,
consider installing a library ladder for better reach.
Install Shelves up to the Ceiling
You can create a wall of shelves for even more items that are out of place. For a really
cluttered closet, this will help to create more space for storage. This is the easiest of all the
projects listed, since it only consists of hanging shelves. How long it’ll take depends on how
many shelves you end up needing.
Build Your Own Library Ladder
DIY library ladders are available for purchase. They are cheaper than those that are already
assembled and they make for great additions for closet organization. If you decide to go with
tall shelves and cubby holes, you’re going to need a ladder to reach it. Sure, you could use a
step stool or mini-ladder, but that wouldn’t be as safe, stylish or as fun as a library ladder!
With these DIY projects, you can easily organize your closet to get rid of all the clutter!
