Does your closet feel uncontrollably cluttered? Keep the chaos at bay. Take some time to restore your storage by implementing these simple organization techniques:

Minimize Items

One of the main reasons for closet clutter is having more clothes than can fit in your space. The first step to achieving closet perfection is ensuring that you have gotten rid of unworn and unwearable clothes. This is essential in reserving the largest are possible for items that you actually use. The most efficient way to declutter your closet is to sort through clothing by type. Avoid the overwhelming pile by grouping similar clothes and comparing them. This will make it easier to get rid of the things you no longer want or have too many of.

Store Strategically

Another way to minimize the clothing in your closet is to efficiently store items according to usage and season. Store your most-used items at eye level, less-used items below, and least-used items up high, taking advantage of all of your closets usable space. Further clear out your closet by packing up out-of-season clothes and placing them in a separate storage area (such as under the bed or in another room).

Maximize Space

Large or small, everyone’s closet could benefit from space maximization. In short, why leave functional space unused? First, ensure that you take advantage of all available surfaces in your closet. This includes vertical space (above and below the rod), overhead shelving, hidden side areas and floor space. Next, combine storage units throughout your closet to fit various needs. Use drawers for folded items, hangers for dresses, and formalwear, baskets for larger accessories and door hooks for smaller accessories. Another trick to making your closet appear more organized is to use coordinated hangers to clean up the look. You can also keep your shoe clutter at bay by implementing tiered shelving, hanging organizers or boxes to keep them sorted and contained.  

Eliminate disarray and stress from your life and your closet. Follow these organization tips and never again worry whether or not you’ll be able to find your favorite pants or beloved dress.
