Organizing The Perfect Closet Once and For All

April 22, 2019
Closet organizer in Fishers apartment

You have discovered the perfect apartment. Natural light is flooding in through the windows, the kitchen cabinets are large, and you can't wait to relax in the garden tub. As you start unloading your clothes into the closet, it becomes evident you may have too many clothes. And shoes. Maybe your roomie won the roomier closet, your +1 actually has more clothes to choose from, or the space is more restricted than you remembered. Here are a few tips to make the most out of your closet space.

Hangers Trump Folded Piles!

Hangers are generally regarded as a necessary evil. Acquiring hangers is a chore and not thought of as exciting. However, the types of hangers you pick in your closet can create or remove space. Using velvet hangers will free up so much availability in your closet and velvet hangers are not super expensive. Also, keep your hangers color-conscious. It's really easy to become distracted by clashing hangers.

how to organize your closet

Organize with a Plan! 

After you've switched hangers, organize your clothes by color as well as sleeve length. We have all been there - sorting through blouses to find your go-to floral dress. Organizing your closet from short to long is easy, but make it fun! Don’t forget you’re the one who has to live with it every time.

Having Folded-Clothes isn't the End of the World! 

Not every piece must be on a hanger. Your jeans, shirts and sweaters can all be folded into drawers or onto shelving. Folding items will keep the closet immensity workable. The difference between hanging and folded pieces will ensure you see your closet more readily.

All Space is Used Space!

Utilize extra storage for the bottom half of the closet. Keep accessories or folded clothing in the cubbies and place shoes underneath. If there is still capacity, the top of the organizer you should definitely use. There is no unusable space in a closet - only untried possibilities.

+1 for the Road...

If you have space in your bedroom, a rolling rack is the quintessential plus-one to any closet. Plan your outfits daily or weekly, use your most coveted pieces as decoration, or just use the rack as extra storage space.
