    Hello, If you will take a sketch and the measurements of your closet to the Container Store, they will design your closet for free. Let them know your priorities. I have a tiny closet 4' x 3' and they really maximized my storage and utilized every inch. Their Elfa, wire shelving is 25% off in January. Good luck~

    Big room? Wow, Think Kardashian. You can do it all with some industrial clothes racks and a seat and table in center. Dresses on one sports on other, work on other, etc.. doors. Make the center of room a table and seat where you lay out your goods and dress up. Big mirrors go well on the back of doors.

    Large home stores sell closet organizers....you can design your own. I would have a bench in there, found at thrift stores, and a makeup table with mirror. What most women wouldn't do for that size storage. Would love to see finished room.

    Do you really have enough to fill up one room? Get real, you can only actually use so much. Devote one half the room to clothes and other half can be for crafts, sewing, books, whatever interests you have. Take Johnchip's idea and divide everything into use groups, then go to wayfair.com The have all kinds of organizers to choose from. Or do a search for closet organizers-do it yourself

    Container Store would be my suggestion. If you don't have one near you, you can do it online. We were able to combine two closets into one with their system!

    I thought for a minute I had gone dyslexic. I kept thinking you said, "I have a closet for a bedroom". I guess I just couldn't wrap my head around the fact that someone has a "bedroom for a closet". Just dropped in to say congrats! and good luck! I have no where to go with this, except to take a nap and dream the impossible dream.

    There is no right or wrong way to organize. I would create a general idea of what kind of storage I need and how I want to store it. , check thrift shops for tall chests or armoirs, and even check Ikea. They have some nice, economically priced storage. If you have one in the area, you might check Restore - you never know what you're going to find there, you might find closet organizers.

    Lowe's & HD have closet systems that are DIY or they have contractors that will do it for you. You can install shelves for your shoes and purses or use bookcases with adjustable shelves for purses, shoes, and folded items. Buy unfinished or already painted matching chests of drawers to line the wall next to the bookcases/shelves. If you buy or paint them all the same color, they will look cohesive. Use top drawers with dividers for bracelets, watches, earrings and hang multiple coat, tie racks, etc for hanging necklaces, and scarves.

    I have the same...bedroom to use as a closet. The closets in this rental are odd and the largest doesn't have rods. I didn't want to install rods that I would have to leave and the closet is very deep and dark and not a workable shape. Because this is temporary housing, I use the stand alone clothing racks. I purchased two different styles at WalMart. One has shelves I use as linen closet and the double rack I use for jackets and bags. The other one is a Better Homes & Gardens two sided rack with a large shelf on top. I currently have my winter and summer slacks, skirts and dresses separated on it. I have a third single rack with 2 bottom shelves. I keep blouses on the rack with some smaller items on the shelves (small purses, etc). I have found this to work well as I can rearrange if I want to. I still have room for a vanity/make up table and shoe racks, a jewelry armoire and hamper.

    I would check out Ikea and their Pax wardrobes. The staff can help you if you bring in your room measurements.
