Beloved and carried with pride by their wearer; handbags are a functional and fashionable part of any wardrobe.  If you’re the type of person who loves handbags, it can be a conundrum to store bags that are not in use. At More Space Place we understand that your handbags are more than just a collection. We can help you design a custom closet that will make storing and showcasing your bags a breeze.


Adding cubbies to your closet is an excellent way to create space that is effective for storing bags. This method also provides multiple storage options for your aesthetic preferences. If you prefer to have them visible, you can place the bags directly in the cubby. If you want to keep your bags concealed, add a wicker basket or storage bin. Then you can place several bags inside and out of sight. Try to keep handbags stored in dust bags whenever possible. It will protect expensive handbags from possible color transfer, exposure to excess moisture, and dust.

Shelf Dividers

Maximize your space by installing shelf dividers. The dividers will keep your bags upright and separated, and you can vary their heights to accommodate different bag sizes.  This will allow you to neatly organize your bags, and keep them easily accessible.

Single Shelves

If you consider your bags an object of beauty, consider installing individual shelves mounted on the wall. This will give you a place to put your favorite bags on display when they’re not hanging on your arm. If your bags are struggling to remain upright, fill them with tissue paper. This will help them maintain their shape and provide stability.

Small Bag Storage

Organizing clutches and small purses can be tricky. One solution is to use a storage box or basket. A box will allow you to keep all your small purses organized in one place and tucked away. However, a box can sometimes make it difficult to see what you have. In that case, try a clear magazine holder. This will keep them upright, visible, and maximize space.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to storing your handbags. Our experts can help you find the perfect storage solution for your needs. Contact your local More Space Place to schedule a free in-home design consultation or visit their showroom.
