Closets can be tricky to organize, especially if you don't have enough storage space. While it's not easy to achieve and have beautiful walk-in closets just like those you see in celebrity homes, here are some simple ideas that can make wonders for your closet.

Color coordination

House Beautiful suggests organizing your clothes by color and using colored hangers to spice up your closet. It's also best to keep your sweaters folded and stacked just like in retail stores. Putting them on hangers may actually damage the material of your clothes.

Separate your long-term clothes from your short-term ones

If you don't have enough storage space, the same site suggests making a partition in your closet for your everyday clothes and long-term apparel. This will make it easier for you to go through your stuff when you're looking for something to wear. Make sure though that there's one section in your closet for hanging.

Use a pegboard

Another neat closet organization idea suggested by Real Simple is to mount a pegboard inside your closet. This can be used to hang your accessories such as belts, necklaces, mirror, purses, shades and more. It can also be used as an "inexpensive mini-dressing station."

Use hooks for your bags inside your closet

To properly store your bags and keep their shape, it's best to hang them on hooks attached to your closet rod. This will keep them organized and help maintain your bags' true form.

Use slanted plywood for your shoes

Attaching a slanted plywood platform inside your closet is a clever idea to keep your shoes organized. Stacking your collection of shoes on the platform allows you to see them all in a glance. It can help you decide easier on which pair to wear!

There are so many more closet organization ideas out there! The trick is in maximizing your closet space, using everyday items such as shoe boxes as closet organizers, and putting the same items together for a more organized look.
