While shopping for new clothes, shoes, and accessories can be an pleasurable experience, the key to enjoying these new purchases for years to come is to store them properly. Learning how to organize a closet might be the last thing on your mind, but it should be your first priority when it comes to taking care of your beloved items. When your pieces are displayed in a visually-pleasing and tidy manner, it will actually inspire you to coordinate outfits and come up with new ensembles.
With all of the home storage products available on the market, organizing a closet is easier now than ever. Here are some top tips for organizing your closet.
Use separate hanging racks to display apparel by category: Tops & Blouses, Jackets & Coats, Pants, Skirts & Shorts, and Dresses. When hanging your items, organizing them by color will not only make your closet prettier to look at, it will make getting dressed in the morning a breeze. Rather than rummaging through a rack of clothes, this technique enables you to quickly find the item you are looking for.
If you have an ample amount of floor space to work with, install (easy to assemble) multi-tier shelves. If you’re closet has limited space, opting for door-mounted shoe racks is a great alternative.
If your closet is large enough to display your purses and bags, that’s ideal. But in most cases, where space is at a premium, items need to be organized differently. That’s where storage containers and decorative boxes come into play.
Some people prefer traditional jewelry boxes and cases. But if you loving collecting jewelry, you’ll come to realize that you’re quickly out-growing your jewelry box. In that instance, using small boxes and decorative trays is a pretty and functional way to organize and display your treasured pieces.
