Teeny tiny closet got you down? After you’ve winnowed your clothes down to the essentials with our Closet Cure (of course), check out these nine clever ways to use IKEA products to squeeze out a little extra storage in your closet.

Or attach a Grundtal rail to the wall (or the back of the door) to hold accessories like belts and scarves. Image from IKEA, via their Pinterest.

Use Grundtal hooks (or these extra large, hand-forged hooks from Custom Citizen on Etsy) to hang your jeans — you’ll save space, and putting them up will be that much easier.

Saundra from Lil Lamb Lost used a LACK shelf to add an extra layer of shelving to her closet — and create a row of cubbies perfect for storing folded clothes.

If your closet has extra floor space, use a Raskog to store shoes or extra clothes, as seen on Livet Hemma.

If you crave the look of custom closet shelving but it’s not quite in the budget, IKEA’s Billy bookcases (seen here in Bianca & Craig’s Moody Glam Apartment) can get the job done for a lot less.
