Do you tense up every time you open your closet door? Do you rejoice if you can even shut your closet door? Whatever your storage situation, you can get more out of your closet by getting more out of your closet and organizing what remains. Find out how to reclaim your closet and rid yourself of some wardrobe worries with these few tricks.
Clean it out.
Start fresh. Remove everything from your closet. Clear out the corner cobwebs so you can see the space in a new light. Depending on your time, you can splash a new coat of paint on the walls or on a couple of shelves.
Add easy organization.
Install hooks on a few of your walls or under a shelf. Add various sized or colored baskets to some of the shelves. Find ways to free up drawer space by hanging belts, ties, or scarves or stashing shoes or bulky sweaters in baskets. Jewelry organizers can offer a clear view of the perfect accessory for your outfit.
Go for uniformity.
Choose a basic color for your baskets or painted shelves. Purchase identical hangers to create a clean and efficient look throughout the closet; your eyes will be drawn to the clothes and not the hangers.
Vary your shelving.
Short, tall, narrow, wide, covered, or open – choose a variety of shelving in your closet if space permits. Various heights will allow you to store items where needed and leave your closet feeling less claustrophobic.
Install something special.
Paint an accent wall in a color you wouldn’t choose anywhere else in your home. Cover your shelves with geometric or whimsical shelf liner. Hang various mirrors or light up your space with a chandelier. Put something unusual in your closet to make it your space.
Take some time to straighten up your closet. Organize it with a better thought out plan. Pull non-seasonal clothes out and store in another location. Make the most of your closet space so that each day can begin with a fresh outfit and outlook.
