Tips for Organizing Your Closet:
Before you begin the organizational process, you will want to take everything out of the closet (literally, everything). While you are taking everything out, you can begin to divide your closet items into piles.
The piles include: keep, donate, and trash.
Pro-Tip: Professional organizers recommend asking yourself “would I repurchase this?” By asking yourself this question, you can determine its usefulness in your closet. If the answer is no, look at its condition and decide if you can donate it.
Incorporate Organizational Systems.
If you have the money, you may want to consider purchasing some form of an organizational system. Items like cubbies, multiple clothing bars, and extra drawers and shelves can be a lifesaver!
Consistency is Key.
We recommend using the same hangers throughout your newly organized closet. This can keep it looking tidy and neat.
If you are a fan of dividing your clothing, you may be interested in purchasing labeled dividers. The dividers are placed in front of each clothing section to denote what clothing is behind it. This is perfect for busy homeowners who would appreciate extra guidance on laundry day.
Place Bins on Your Shelves.
Do not let the shelving above your clothing bar go unused. Take advantage of this remarkable space by placing stylish bins to store your out-of-season clothing.
Add Extra Lighting.
If you find yourself struggling to see your clothing options in the morning, you may want to consider adding extra lighting near or inside of your closet. This will help you see all of your options and maybe encourage you to wear some of your underused items.
No closet is complete without a mirror. Be sure to add a mirror near or inside of your closet to complete your look.
