Believe it or not, I've had a few rooms in San Francisco with no closets. Now that I have a decent-sized closet, I make sure to maximize that space--and you should do the same. Hanging shoe racks, though precarious, save floor space for lesser-used items
The first thing I did was purchase a few closet organization gadgets. These are normally for shoes but I used them to store the cleaning products we use most. If you are thinking about doing something like this make sure to put your money in strong ones since you are going to be adding a good amount of weight to them.n As you can see this is not a huge space BUT we have room for cleaning supplies, hygiene supplies, our ironing board, vacuum, mop, broom, and more… So awesome!
