No matter where your hall closet is situated in your home, a few small changes can help to make all the difference in making it an organized space. For example, if you will be using your hall closet to organize coats and outerwear, then consider adding a clothing rod or wall hooks for easy storage. Be sure to hang the hooks or rod at a height that allows for longer coats to hang freely.

When you are using a hall closet to store overflow — whether it's from a bedroom or your child's playroom — shelving is a must-have storage solution. The right amount of shelving allows for easy storage of containers filled with out-of-season clothing, and baskets filled with toys or games.

A hall closet can also make a very useful linen closet. Shelving and even a set of drawers are optimal for helping to organize towels, sheets and blankets.
