Is your coat closet lacking in the organization department? Did you know there are so many easy ways to spruce up the space and make it both attractive and functional?! Between using a pretty wallpaper on the back wall to installing various organizational components, you can make your closet a super space in your home. And you will be so proud to open your coat closet door and welcome your guests to leave their coats and shoes inside!

Use an inexpensive shoe hanger that you can place over the door to collect small items, like gloves, hats, and other small entryway items.

Use some baskets in the same color and size family to store stuff in a neat, clutter-free way.

Install some cubbies along the back wall of your closet to keep shoes and other items off the floor.

Install multiple shelves across the closet to store random items. Also, use hooks on the inside of the door to keep your bags.

For a pop of color and fun inspiration, pick a pretty wall paper and line the back of your coat closet with it. Easy and super attractive!

Of course you need a fairly big closet for this project, but if you have the room, consider installing a bench seat inside the coat closet so it is convenient for guests (and your family) to sit down and put shoes on.

I hope some of these ideas inspire you to make your coat closet the best it can be!
