  1. A Peek Inside

    Hide

    Digital pictures, tucked into card-stock tags with windows, identify the contents inside each garment bag. Breathable and inexpensive, the canvas bags can be dressed up with colorful bias tape, applied with an iron and fusible webbing.

  2. Collecting Station

    Hide

    The space above these built-in drawers includes a magnetic message board, made by wrapping linen around a sheet of galvanized metal and then framing it. A nearby tray serves as a catchall for watches, keys, and other everyday items.

  3. High Altitude

    Hide

    Hard-to-reach areas are a closet's no-man's-land. A spring-loaded pull-down rack, which you can install yourself, solves the problem. A light tug on a handle positioned in the center of the rod brings clothes to you.

  4. Trim Curtains

    Hide

    Short shower curtains look tidy and tailored, and they don't trap dust and moisture. To create the look in your bathroom, cut a fabric curtain 2 inches longer than the desired length, then fold and sew a 2-inch hem. Leave the plastic liner hanging full-length in the tub to contain water from the shower.

  5. Pantry Dividers

    Hide

    Storing baking sheets, cutting boards, and sturdy platters upright on kitchen shelves frees space and keeps you from having to lift a heavy stack when you need only one item. Create dividers for them using tension curtain rods. Buy rods to fit the space, and position pairs of them at intervals. Twist to tighten.

  6. Towel Cabinet

    Hide

    A wooden flea-market cupboard makes a great towel cabinet, left. Use top of cabinet for extra storage. Keep your regular supply in the glass-fronted cabinet. Having all towels visible makes it easy to keep track of your inventory. Open shelves on the sides hold glass jars full of cotton balls and soaps.
