Does your closet leave you feeling overwhelmed? Check out these 7 essential tips for organizing closets to give you peace of mind.
It can be frustrating to have a disorganized closet, especially when you’re looking for a favorite shirt or you’re tripping over clothes on the floor. Instead of feeling overwhelmed with cleaning your closet, use these 7 tips for organizing closets to get back on track.
Declutter and Donate
When it comes to organizing a closet, the first step is to declutter and donate items you no longer wear. The more space you free up, the easier it will be to organize. Take everything out of your closet and put them into three piles: keep, donate, and toss. Be honest and remove any items you haven’t worn for months or items that no longer fit your style.
Taking time to declutter will give you more space and it will be easier to find the clothes you love.
Sort into Categories
After decluttering and donating, categorizing and sorting will make your closet more pleasing to look at. Group items together that are similar, consider these groups: shirts, sweaters, pants, dresses etc. Sorting into groups means you will know exactly where to look when you need a specific item. To make your closet even more visually appealing, arrange clothes by color.
With categories, choosing an outfit each day will be a breeze.
Invest in Quality Hangers
Ever find your clothes frequently falling off of hangers? Investing in quality hangers will work wonders when it comes to organization. Look for quality felt hangers that will prevent clothes from slipping off and wrinkling. Not only do quality hangers save space but they provide a uniform look in your closet.
Utilize Storage Solutions
Using a variety of storage solutions will ensure that everything has a home. Easily maximize the space in your closet by using shelves, hanging organizers, and shoe racks. Shelves are ideal for holding folded clothes and accessories. Using a hanging organizer will keep items like scarves, belts, and ties organized. A shoe rack keeps footwear out of the way and displays them neatly.
Use Every Space
If you have limited closet space, take a moment to look around and identify any available space. The inside of the closet door is a space that often gets overlooked. You can easily install hooks or over-the-door organizers to hang items you use frequently like robes or bags.
Establish Seasonal Rotation
Setting up a seasonal rotation for your clothes helps keep your closet organized year-round. When a new season arrives, swap out seasonal clothing to create more space in your closet. Store off-season clothes in a vacuum sealed bag or in a labeled bin. Less clothes in your closet year-round means less clutter and more room to organize.
To maintain an organized closet, consistent effort is required. Make a daily habit to tidy up clothes on the floor and ensure that everything is in its place. Sort through items once a month to remove items you no longer wear and reorganize as needed. Daily habits will keep the chaos out of your closet.
