When you live in a small home, closet space can not only be limited, sometimes it’s simply non existent! And depending on where you live in the world, that actually may be the norm. (We’re a little spoiled for space here in the U.S. folks…) So if you are looking for space to hang those dresses, skirts, blouses and suits… without cramming them into the “permanent wrinkle” zone, then give these wardrobe and clothing rack projects a try to stretch that space!

‘Beckham and Belle’ show you how to make these DIY wardrobe racks from pine boards, PVC pipe and simple flanges… all stuff you can get at the home improvement store. Really affordable project! We also love that the casters make it portable.

Lovin’ this French country wardrobe from ‘Ana White’s’ reader posts. We are thinking this is adapted from her plans for her armoire. Unfortunately, the reader who submitted it didn’t clue us in on which of her plans they used! This is a nice way to keep the wardrobe clean looking with the closing door.

This DIY clothing rack (she calls it her planter closet…see the planter built in to the top?) by ‘Katleen Roggeman’ from Germany is a great example of how a utilitarian thing like a closet can be cool. This ended up in a German DIY magazine… great design!

These last two tutorials will need a little help from Google Translate… From ‘VTWonen’, this clothing rack is simply dowels and pipe fittings!
