If you’re like most people, your closet is probably the most disorganized part of your house. Since most guests will never see the inside of your bedroom, your closet is often neglected but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are 3 tips on how to properly organize and get the most use out of your closet.
Take stock of your wardrobe
The first thing you have to do is take stock of your current wardrobe. Make a few piles: clothes you wear, clothes you don’t wear and clothes you might wear. Also, take stock of outfits you wear to work as well as your causal clothes. The goal is to properly organize your wardrobe by season and occasion. This is probably the hardest part about organizing your closet but it’s a necessity. You want to ultimately maximize your closet space and it can’t be done correctly if you have clothes hanging up that you don’t wear.
Use proper hangers
“No more wire hangers,” the phrase made famous by Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest is another great way to organize your closet. Wire hangers don’t hold their shape very well which could damage your clothes in the long run. Instead, invest in some sturdy hangers that can withstand the weight of your heavier clothing items. This will help your clothing keep their shape as well as make your closet look more organized thanks to the uniformity of the hangers.
Maximize your space
Finally, the best way to organize your closet is to maximize your space with a custom storage system. Currently, your closet may be filled to the brim with clothes and other accessories but their’s probably more room in there than you think. A custom closet can help by utilizing both vertical and horizontal space with shelves, rods, hooks, and built-in cabinets that will give your closet a new organized look.
