Closet Organization — It's A Thing

The perfect closet may be nothing but an illusion, especially if you are resigned to city life. It may not be convenient for you, but a few creative hacks can transform your small closet into your ideal storage space. We know a few clever changes that will make the best out of your closet.

6 Hacks to Make the Most of Your Closet Space

  1. Out With the Old
    We know that this may be the last thing on your mind. But, yes, this is where you should actually start. Decluttering your closet is very liberating. It's a chance to say goodbye to things that you no longer need and free up your space for new and better things. The difference will be evident once you toss out things you no longer need and create more space for items you wish to keep and new additions. Getting dressed and packing for a trip will no longer be a nightmare as you fight through the clutter. An organized and spacious closet is bound to give you an undeniable sense of calm and clarity.

  2. Invest in a Closet Organization System
    If you have a busy life and time is a luxury, you may often find that you have clothes and accessories cluttered all over the place. Now imagine a closet where you have everything neatly stored and ready for use. This is what a closet organization system can do for you. Making the most of the available space can make a world of difference. This system is designed to maximize all available space with shelving, hanging, and drawers. You are able to choose a configuration that best suits your needs and lifestyle. It may seem like a huge investment, but a closet organizer addresses most of your space problems.

  3. Hanging is the Way to Go
    By adding more rods to your closet, you can hang more clothes. You can also invest in a double hanging system with a set of rods in the front and another set at the back. Another option you can use is to place one rod at the top of the closet for hanging your shirts and another placed in the middle of your closet for hanging folded pants. Installing rods on your closet doors for hanging scarves, ties, and other accessories is also an awesome idea. Hanger solutions that accommodate more than one hanger are also great.

  4. Don't Let That Floor and Wall Space Go to Waste
    Your closet floors and walls provide you with loads of storage space. You can use a hanging shoe organizer to stash away your shoes. Purses and bags can also be hung on the walls by use of removable adhesive hooks. The closet floor is usually a dumping ground, but you can keep it clean and functional with a beautiful shoe rack, unique baskets, and boxes.

  5. Tuck Away Items Not in Use
    Clothing and accessories that are currently off-season can consume huge chunks of your space if not properly stored. Transparent storage bags are excellent since you can easily locate the items. Another ingenious way of storing such items is in an unused suitcase. However, make sure the clothes are clean and dry.

  6. Learn How to Fold
    We often fold items casually as we toss them on a shelf or into a drawer. However, taking time to properly fold clothing and other items not only keeps them in great condition but also frees up tons of space in your closet.

Take advantage of these closet-organizing tricks, and you'll find the clutter around your home start to disappear.
