Creating that Open Closet in Small Bedroom

The traditional idea of a bedroom closet is not one that works for everyone and that is even truer in case of the small apartment bedroom. Instead of trying to create a closet wardrobe that occupies precious square footage, urn to the open closet design. This can be achieved using a few simple hanging rods, boxes, baskets and a combination of open shelves and drawers. In case of the simple rod that holds your dress collection, this popular feature also adds metallic glint to the neutral bedroom!

Here you do not need an additional closet or even a tiny niche in the corner to create that eye-catching closet. A simple, plain wall does the trick and if you are feeling even more adventurous, then use wallpaper to highlight the closet

A Niche for the Closet

From the simple open closet design in tiny bedrooms, we move a notch higher to the small niche that holds the closet. Here you have more options to choose from and a combination of open shelves on top along with closed drawers below is the perfect solution. Instead of using doors, you can turn to curtains to save both space and cut back on costs and you can even add a traditional dresser that you have lying around to further enhance the closet design. If you have a traditional door for the closet, a custom basket hanger fitted to it provides even more shelf space!

For the Small Modern Bedroom

The closet niche need not be relegated to the bedroom alone. It can find a home in the hallway, next to the bathroom or in any other room of the small apartment with ease. Before planning for the small closet think about your wardrobe need and what exactly goes in there. A cluttered closet can still bother you if you do not throw away clothes that you no longer need and hoard pretty much everything and anything you own. Pick a bedroom closet style that fits in with the modern appeal of your apartment bedroom and complete the space with right lighting for the perfect look.
