Face it: it doesn’t matter how organized you think you are, everyone has that one closet that is proof that they just aren’t pulling it together as well as they might like. Closets are a sore spot for many home owners. For some, the reason is that closet space is limited, and so it feels pointless to even attempt to organize what is ultimately a very small space that will be overloaded with personal items. For others, the idea of figuring out how to organize the chaotic mess that is your closet is such an overwhelming idea that it just never makes it on to the to-do list.
There are simple steps that you can take to make a huge difference in the way your closets are organized, and the best part is that all of these steps can be taken in a single weekend, giving you plenty of time to focus on the many other items that do regularly make it onto your to-do list.
Here are a few quick tips as to how to organize your closets:
- Take an inventory of what you have in your closet, and make sure that you are at the very least keeping items together. Assess what is in there, and uncover any items that might have been hiding for the last 10 (or 20) years.
- Have a look at how your closet is structured, and consider how you could put those empty walls to use. Would you benefit from a coat rack, or is shelving more necessary? What kind of shelving would fit best?
- Bring some light into your closet to help keep everything in sight. This will prevent you from being tempted to toss things on the floor, as when you can see where you are putting things it is easier to keep them in their proper place.
- Get rid of those store-supplied hangers and invest in some quality, or at the very least matching hangers. This is a simple mental trick that makes a huge difference in how you are taking care of your clothes.
Once you clear out those clothes you haven’t touched since the 1990s and you are able to assess the space you do have available, set yourself up for success with custom shelving and closet organization. There is no closet too small to organize! For more information, contact us.
