Organizing The Perfect Closet Once and For All

You have unearthed the best apartment. Natural light is bellowing in through the windows, the kitchen are spacious, and you can't wait to take a bubble bath in the garden tub. As you start unpacking your stuff into the closet, it becomes evident you may have too many clothes. And shoes. Maybe your friend won the bigger closet, your spouse actually has more clothes to choose from, or the space is more cramped than you thought. Here are a few tricks to make the most out of your closet space.

Hangers over Folded Piles!

Hangers are often regarded as a necessary evil. Buying hangers is an errand and not treated as fun. However, the types of hangers you use in your closet can create or minimize space. Using velvet hangers will increse so much room in your closet and they are not super expensive. Also, keep your hangers the same color. It's really easy to become distracted by mismatched hangers.

Organize with a Plan! 

After you've switched hangers, organize your shirts by color then sleeve length. We have all been there - sorting through tops to find your go-to striped skirt. Dividing up your closet from short to long is easy, but make it fun! Don’t forget you’re the one who has to see it every time.

Having Folded-Clothes isn't the End of the World! 

Not every piece needs to have a hanger. Your sweaters, shirts, and jeans can all be folded into drawers or put away neatly on your closet shelves. Folding items will keep the closet volume workable. The divergence between hanging and folded pieces will ensure you see everything more clearly.

If there is Space, Use it!

Take advantage of extra storage for the bottom half of the closet. Store the clothes you folded or accessories in the cubbies and keep shoes underneath. If there is still capacity, the top of the organizer can be used. There is no reason to leave empty space in a closet - only untapped possibilities.

+1 for the Road...

If space allows in a bedroom, a rolling rack is the best +1 to any wardrobe. Plan your outfits daily or weekly, use your most coveted pieces as adornment, or you can still use the rolling rack as additional storage space.
