Tips From The Pros
Conquering clutter isn't easy. Here are a few tips from our closet organizers:
1. Your closet, your lifestyle.
You begin every day by picking out clothes in your closet, and you probably end every day there too. Nothing starts the day off better than beginning your day with a well-designed closet that greets you with everything you need. Where store-bought closet organizers fail, California Closets picks up the pieces and gives you a closet that meets your every need.
2. Time to move on.
Even the wisest closet organizers run into this problem repeatedly: people don't want to throw things out. Our experienced closet organizers know how hard it is to throw away that one special shirt or the story behind that one dress, but in the name of organization, you need to move on. If you never wear it and it's just taking up space, it's best to donate it or throw it out.
3. Manhattanize your closet
This works especially well in smaller closets: if you need to make space out of nothing, add shelves. Shelving allows you to stack items vertically, opening up a ton of new storage potential in your closet. Creating the best shelving plan is our closet organizers' specialty – too many shelves can be hard to access, and too few won't give you enough storage. Let our Albuquerque closet organizers demonstrate just how much your closet can store with custom shelving!
4. It's all in the design.
Ultimately, the key to a successful closet is design. Our closet organizers have years of experience creating viable closet designs for even the smallest closets. If you just can't seem to make your closet work, chances are our closet designers have solved your problem before.
Closet Organizers Can Improve Your Life
Your closet is one of the first places you visit in the morning and one of the last spaces before you go to bed. So it makes sense that if your closet is organized and flowing you will take that feeling with you through the day. Conversely if it is a cluttered space, you will take that stress with you as well.
Transform your closet today with some expert tips from the designers at California Closets New Mexico.
1. A system for your closet and your lifestyle
As much as you may be tempted to just go and buy factory-made, removable closet organizers, don’t give in. Every closet space is different, and closet organizers that are not custom built for your space don’t make the best use of the limited room that you have. In addition these closet organizers might not have enough space for all your hanger items or the wrong size shelves for your clothes. A personalized closet organizer system isn’t just customized to fit your space, but also to correspond to your wardrobe and the type of clothes you wear.
2. When it comes to your wardrobe, remember: Rotation, rotation, rotation!
Even the wisest closet organizers run into this problem - there are just too many clothes in the closet! Our expert closet organizers know how hard it is to throw away that one special dress of the memories that go with a certain suit and tie, but if you haven’t worn it in years, you probably won’t wear it. Place colored tags on each item in your wardrobe and as you wear each item through the year, take off the tag. By the end of the year, you’ll be surprised how many items you didn’t wear. Throw them out!
3. Shelves and stacking
When choosing shelves for your closet, both width and height are very important. Shelves that are two shallow will make the stacking of sweaters and other things messy and difficult. Shelves that are too deep will waste valuable space in your closet. To prevent clothes from being over-stacked and falling on you, our closet organizers recommend that you keep the vertical distance relatively small.
4. Space efficiency
Closet organizers often find that the biggest barrier to closet organization is a lack of space. Take advantage of every nook and cranny by going for higher shelving to utilize vertical space and half-height hanger rods for shorter jackets and dresses to minimize wasted space.
