How to Maximize Space in a Small Guest Room Closet in 5 Ways

For most of us, the guest room closet is just an additional space for office supplies, Christmas decorations, and stuff we can't fit anywhere else. However, the space we have to work with isn't infinite. And at least once a year, we find ourselves walking into a storage nightmare without an inch of wiggle room!

This is one of those storage situations that gets worse before it gets better. As we get into the holidays and visits from relatives, the situation is bound to be a little embarrassing.

If you have a small reach-in closet in your guest room space, you know just how difficult long-term storage can be. Thankfully, getting around the barriers of dated design is easier than you'd think. Here are some tried and tested tips to maximize storage space inside your guest room.

1. Getting A Custom Closet Design

If you consistently wind up with a messy closet no matter how many times you clean, maybe it's not you who's to blame. Perhaps it's your closet!

A custom closet design is a perfect way to overhaul your current setup and address what works, what doesn't, and what should be improved. And if you partner with Louisiana Custom Closets, you'll have a beautiful new design in just a few weeks!

2. Installing New Accessories

Need to avoid redoing your guest room closet? You could always add to it! Many closet accessories are helpful in a guest space:

  • Baskets
  • Drawer dividers
  • Belt and tie racks

3. Going Vertical (If Possible)

If spreading out isn't an option, going up might be a good idea.

Floor-to-ceiling cabinets, wardrobes, and hanging racks allow you to stack everything you need into a straightforward vertical space.

4. Look Under The Bed

Never underestimate the power of under-the-bed storage.

Vacuum-sealed bags are a great way to begin, as well as plastic rolling bins.

Just make sure to clean under the bed often!

5. Hiding In Plain Sight

If you've already maxed out your closet and under-the-bed spaces, you can try hiding things in plain sight!


  • A chest at the end of the bed
  • Sofas with built-in compartments
  • Side desks or coffee tables
