No matter what size closet you have, the most important thing that you can do is keep it organized. Here are some ideas for closet organizers that you can use in order to create a functional space that is uncluttered and provides room for everything.
Before you start adding fixtures and other elements to your closet to get it organized you will want to pull all of your clothing, shoes, and accessories out and get rid of some. Your closet should be limited to housing only the items that you love and use frequently.
Once you have gotten rid of everything that you do not use, it is time to create a space that is not only efficient, but also beautiful.
Get Some Drawers
When it comes to closet storage, drawers are one of the best options. If it is possible to add drawers to your current closet choose a combination of deep and shallow ones. Adding some dividers or inserts can help keep them organized. A shallow drawer can store jewelry, scarves, and even sweaters as it can be easier to find things in this type of drawer.
Find some cubbies or trays to hold some of your smaller items. For accessories such as ties or belts, a small cubicle storage unit will work well.
Closet Dressing Area
One of the ways to inspire yourself to get dressed each day is to create a designated area in your closet where you can hang and display your outfits. If you have the space, create an area for dressing that includes a small ironing board as well as a chair or bench for dressing time. You can also add a mood board full of inspirational people who will help motivate you each morning.
Open shelves are a great way to add a contemporary touch to your space. Open shelves work well for displaying your favorite purses and other objects such as neatly folded sweaters. A built-in bookcase or floating shelves that are wall mounted are perfect ways to create these open shelves.
You may think that having a closet with deep shelves and large drawers is organized and efficient. However, this is often not the case as many things will get lost on the back of the shelves and in the pit of the drawers. Using dividers and designated shoe holders or even extra shelving can help make these spaces more efficient.
Keeping your Closet Organized
Once you have organized your closet, it is important to keep it that way. Make sure that each item goes in its place after it is used. If a section is often disorganized, try to find a way that you can organize it better. You may need a box or catch-all basket for some items in an area that becomes unruly.
