The Keys to a Successful Closet
It may seem daunting at first, but turning your closet into a hub of organization is possible. Here are some tips from our experts:
1. Design around your space
Whether your closet is large or cramped, it's important to structure a storage plan around your available space. Our closet organizers are experts at analyzing your closet's storage potential and creating a viable design to maximize how much you can store inside it. Once you start organizing according to a custom plan, you'll be amazed how easy it is to get and stay organized!
2. If you don't need it, don't keep it
This one can be hard for some people: if you haven't worn that dress in years, you're probably not going to wear it anytime soon. Items that you don't use are just taking up space, even if you feel they have sentimental value to you. Getting rid of things that you don't need is a great way to free up space, and give your closet a sense of freshness and vitality.
3. Build up
Shelves are a great way to add storage space to even the most cramped of closets. If you need to store more than your closet can hold currently, adding shelves will open up a whole new storage potential for you to use. Use shelves to hold boxes full of long-term storage items (books, documents), items you need to access daily (jewelry, laptop accessories), and even folded clothes.
4. Don't overdo it
It's easy to forget how important openness is in a closet, until you put too much inside and it becomes cramped again. Our closet organizers are experts at helping you store everything you need in your closet – without it appearing cramped or stuffed.
