Whether you have a small, large or medium size closet, having some sort of square footage where you can store your clothing is always a must. However, not all of us have the space, which is why being organized is key. Not only will you be getting the most out of the room, but you will feel better about adding to your wardrobe in an overall manner. Here are a few closet organizing ideas to help you along the way.
Build an Island
Sometimes all you want from your closet is to feel more upscale and can we say luxurious? If that is the case for you, bring in an island. It’s all about building an island that makes the room feel glamorous, pair it with a fun sofa and chair to complete the look. Not only will you be getting more storage from the island but due to having this extra space and element you will want to put your clothes away helping you avoid clutter.
It’s all about making the most out of the closet space you already have. To do that, consider double hanging. Double hanging works as it allows you to place as much clothing in one area as possible. Additionally, if you share closet space with a spouse it makes it easier to have essentials in one single area without taking away from whatever room they have left.
Behind closed Doors
If you have storage that has doors in your bedroom, it’s time to consider filling them up with clothing and shutting the door. Though most of us would look at it and think “well, I’m going to fill the space up with clutter” the key is organizing it well, so inside of those compartments you can fit as much clothing as possible without taking away from what the rest of your closet. Furthermore, this allows your closet to be simply that “a closet” not a hoarder’s nest.
Use Special Hangers
You read that correctly, use special hangers. It’s all about finding the slim, and open hangers that allow you to file away pants without appearing bulky. Stock up on slimmer wood hangers to allow your clothing to shine all on its very own. You could even consider padded hangers for an extra dose of security.
Before you begin organizing take a good look at how you use your closet. Are their specific areas or clothing items you use most? Are there some shoes you love more than others? If so, it’s time to take a look at how you use your clothing and organize it from there. Place everything you use often in a space that you can easily grab and the items that are used you want to move it to the back. Doing so will remove the cluttered feel while helping you see what items you are using compared to the ones that aren’t getting as much love.
Fall in love with your closet again by having shelf dividers. Shelving is great for those that are collectors and want to display their favorite items. There is something unique and special about having your favorite bits displayed exactly how you want them. Furthermore, you can embrace the idea of adding clothing to your shelves and having them neatly showcased. It’s all about getting the most out of the room.
Bring a Dresser and Mirror
If you are lucky enough to have a walk-in closet that has somehow become overcrowded with clothing, it’s time to bring in a dresser with a mirror. It will turn the closet into a full-blown station where you can not only get dressed, but you can do your makeup as well. Furthermore, it’s a place where you can decompress.
A little labeling can go a long way, especially if you are known for cluttering. Use a label maker to ensure you always know where everything is going. Additionally, this works great if your labels are placed on bins or small storage containers that hold the minimal. Place your baskets on top of your closet in that shelving area to truly take advantage of the space.
Find a Place for Your Shoes
Instead of having your shoes displayed around the room, or even thrown into a corner, find a place for them. Having a designated spot for your shoes is one of the easiest forms of reorganizing your room. It’s all about showcasing your shoes in a cohesive manner possible. Whether you place them in their display, or you place them inside of your closet, the idea is to have them working in your favor instead of bringing more clutter.
One of the most common things we see in a closet is unorganized colors. Not only does that create a lack of organization, but it makes you feel all over the place almost as if nothing makes sense. Change that quickly by color coordinating your clothing. Every color that makes sense to be together put it together, it will eliminate the mess, plus giving your clothing a designated space.
