Organizing The Perfect Closet Once and For All

You have discovered the perfect apartment. Natural light is flooding in through the windows, the kitchen are roomy, and you can't wait to soak in the garden tub. As you start putting your stuff into the closet, it becomes evident you may have too many clothes. And shoes. Maybe your friend won the better closet, your spouse actually has more clothes to choose from, or the space is more awkward than you thought. Here are a few tricks to make the most out of your closet.

Hangers Trump Folded Piles!

Hangers are generally accepted as a necessary evil. Purchasing hangers is a chore and not usually fun. However, the types of hangers you use in your closet can increase or take away space. Using velvet hangers will increse so much availability in your closet and velvet hangers are easy on the wallet. Also, keep your hangers color-coordinated.

Organize with a Purpose!

After you've switched hangers, organize your pieces by color and sleeve length. Tell me if this sounds familiar - digging through shirts to find immaculate printed pant. Organizing your closet from summer to winter is easy, but enjoy the process! Don’t forget you’re the one who has to live with it every morning.

Don't Think you can't Fold SOME Clothes!

Not everything needs to have a hanger. Your jeans, shirts and sweaters can all be folded into drawers or onto shelving. Folding items will keep the closet volume workable. The difference between hanging and folded garments will ensure you see your clothes more readily.

If there is Space, Use it!

Utilize extra storage for the lower half of the closet. Keep the clothes you folded or accessories in the cubbies and organize shoes underneath. If there is still space, the top [of|part of|area of]184] the organizer you should definitely use. There is no reason to leave empty space in a closet - only untapped potential.

Parting Shot...

If you have space in a bedroom, a rolling rack is the perfect plus-one to any wardrobe. Be proactive and plan your outfits ahead of time, use your most coveted pieces as decoration, or simply use the said rolling rack as extra storage space.
