If you're trying to fit more hanging clothes into a small closet or hanging rack, velvet hangers are the best ones to use. Slim velvet hangers take up less space than plastic and wood hangers, and they also prevent garments from slipping. Professional organizers also recommend using one uniform hanger style to help the closet look less cluttered visually, but buying all new hangers at once can add up, especially if you opt for wood. This best-selling pack from AmazonBasics comes with 50 hangers and more than 72,000 five-star reviews, so you can replace all of the hangers in your closet fairly inexpensively with just a few packs.

If you have limited shelf space in your closet, these wire baskets are perfect for utilizing the wasted space below a shelf. These baskets slide onto the shelves and are perfect for storing additional folded clothes or accessories. Plus, there are no tools or hardware required to install, meaning rearranging your closet or moving to your next place if you're a renter couldn't be easier. These baskets also come in handy for storage in pantries, linen closets, offices and more.

Anyone who's ever had to dig through a bottomless pit of shoes in search of a matching pair knows the importance of a good storage system for shoes. In a small closet, it's crucial to utilize vertical space. Use the empty space below your hanging clothes for a shoe rack — or two! We love the look of bamboo shoe shelves like this one, and you can stack multiple on top of one another to store as many pairs as possible. This two-tier bamboo shelf can fit up to five pairs on each level, depending on the type of shoe. If you still need more shoe storage, an over-the-door shoe rack is another great way to utilize vertical space, especially for shoes you may not reach for as often as the ones on display.
