Top DIY Wardrobe Ideas That You Will Love

Do you see clothes in piles around your bedroom? Is your space feeling quite the clutter? If you answered yes to all these questions, it is time for a closet refresh. Getting your dream closet might feel unattainable, but DIY wardrobe ideas and a little elbow grease can help you get there. Be it improving your organization game, transforming your closet into a whole new space, or establishing some new storage solutions, these DIY closet ideas will surely cover you. 

As always with DIYs, make sure you follow some good safety precautions. In case you are woodworking, always wear gloves when dealing with chemicals and goggles. If you deal with paint, make sure you wear old, dingy clothes that you don't mind ruining if you get any paint on you. 

Be creative and design your closet just how you have always dreamed. Make use of colors that will match your bedroom and add interesting accents (think delightfully green plants or quirky knick-knacks) to make your closet, even more your own. You can also look for recycling ideas. So now, let us get started with DIY closet ideas and tutorials to get you started on the path to a more organized closet.

  • Custom Shelves

Build a closet shelf that will double your storage space with these plans. All you have to do is take your closet real estate to its full potential and keep things twice as much stuff in a more organized way. 

  • Belt and Other Hang-Ups

If you are not sure where to keep your belts, an inexpensive and easy-to-make belt holder is a great idea. All you will need is a wooden hanger and some cup hooks. If some of the belts have unusually thick buckles, all you have to do is widen the cup hook slightly with needle-nose pliers. This is a great way to hang small handbags, too.

  • Pack Seasonal Clothing

Storing seasonal clothes and accessories somewhere else is one simple way to make extra closet space. This will leave you more space for the items you need right now. You can use a vacuum storage bag to keep clothes, accessories, shoes and purses. Get ready to be surprised by how compact it all becomes once you remove the air. Make a list of what's in each bag where you can read it. This will help you locate something if you find you need it unexpectedly.

  • Closet Nook Shelves

Don't waste the recessed space at the ends of a closet. Installing a wire or other custom shelving to hold towels, beddings, or blankets is one of the best ways to maximize the space you already have. You can find wire shelves in a variety of widths. 

  • One Place for Storing Scarves

There are many ways of storing scarves. You want to be able to find them quickly; however, your choice of closet storage is based on whether you want to keep them hidden away or make a feature of them. If you roll them, they stay in a compact shape and then you can store them in a cubbyhole or place them in dividers in a drawer. 

These are some DIY wardrobe ideas that you incorporate into your home. 


Be it a dreamy walk-in wardrobe or a tiny storage pantry that can barely hold a hanger, keeping a closet of any size clutter-free is quite challenging. And if you are done with opening up your closet door and seeing clothes hanging askew, shoes and scarves falling all over the floor, and dust bunnies lurking behind those purses you can't reach, then it is around time for a major closet makeover. Just like organizing your kids' rooms or kitchen cabinets, a few DIY closet organization ideas can make a big difference.
