The start of a new year often injects us with energy and motivation to organize and clean. (And, in my case, the feeling is usually gone by February!) Closets are a traditional target, but what if you don’t have a closet? Kids usually get the smallest bedrooms in the house, often lacking a closet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a functional, organized faux-closet.

Above are 15 examples to explore. A few of them have recessed spaces that don’t qualify as a true closet and most have nothing. You can see that some popular solutions for hanging clothes are armoires or closets outfitted with a hanging rod, hanging rods (or branches) suspended from the ceiling or underneath shelving and stand-alone racks. The first decision to make is whether you want something open or closed. If you’d like to see more of these rooms, follow these links:
