Here in Florida, we do not have basements to store all of our extra hats, shoes and seasonal clothing. If you do not have an additional bedroom closet or hallway closet, then bedroom closet organization is crucial. Here are some tips on making your closet storage-friendly:
- De-Clutter your life. The first step in organizing a closet is to get rid of anything you haven’t worn in over a year. Yes, even that party dress that you said you would wear out with your friends someday. By removing items that you do not use, it will create room for items that will use.
- Install racks, shelves and any closet system so that everything that you own “has its own space”. This step helps to create the “bones” of your closet organization. Look at the space you have to work with. You will need room for shoes, cubbies or shelves for sweaters and jeans, and room to hang shirts and dresses. Shelf dividers come in handy to keep items from falling into each other on shelves. Hooks are little unsung heroes for closet organization. They’re unobtrusive and can hold robes, coats and bags.
- Clear, stackable boxes can hold any odds and ends. Label the outside so that you can identify the contents without tearing down an entire column of boxes.
- Keep the most used items at eye level. By doing this, it makes it easier to access the clothing and accessories that you use the most. If you only wear that wide brim hat when going to the beach, place that further back in the closet. You don’t need to look at it every time you walk into your closet.
- Store your seasonal clothing towards the back of the closet or up high and out of sight. If possible, store them under your bed in handy under-bed containers.
By organizing your closet, it will de-clutter your life, make it easier to find things, and overall make your life easier.
