While I'm certainly not an efficiency expert, I also don't like to waste a lot of time deciding what to wear or how to accessorize. Since bedrooms usually serve as both a place to sleep and a place to dress, it makes a lot of sense to decorate the walls in a functional manner as well.
With not a lot of space in my closet, I decided it would be a pretty decision to store half of my often-worn hat collection on the walls where I dress each morning. In addition to the wall display style of organizing, I also have a small collection of hat boxes in which I store out-of-season hats on shelves in my closet. But as a visually oriented person, it's very helpful to see options out in the open when selecting what to wear each day. So, instead of keeping them pent up in boxes, they spend six months of the year in plain sight, or on top of my head.
To hang the hats, I simply used a level to mark spots where I then secured long nails to hang each one. In a pinch, it was an easy solution requiring supplies I already had in my possession. Not perfect, but certainly pretty!
