Some Simple Tips To Get You Started
To start the process of decluttering your closet, here are four tips our closet organizers can't recommend enough:
1. Make use of all available space.
Making the most of a small, cramped closet can be a difficult task, but making use of all available space is the quickest way to increase your closet's storage potential. Every wall, available floor space, and corner has some potential to work for you and store whatever you need it to – you just have to analyze it. Our closet organizers do this day in and day out. With a professional California Closets closet organizer creating the design, there's no telling how much your closet will be able to store!
2. Shelves: use them properly.
Shelves are always a great way to make extra closet space out of nothing. However, you need to use the right shelves to make the most of them. Shelves that are too small won't be able to hold larger objects or folded clothes, and shelves that are too big may take up too much space and be hard to access. Choosing shelves that are the perfect dimensions for exactly what you need to put on them is the key to having optimum vertical storage.
3. Sentimental value doesn't keep your closet clean.
Try this: put a tag on each of your clothing items, and take off the tag the first time you wear an item. After a few months, check which items still have the tag on them – you'll be amazed at how many things you keep in your closet that you rarely (if ever) wear. Even if that dress or scarf holds sentimental value for you, you could probably use the space more than you use the item. Donate or throw out items that you don't use; you'll feel a sense of freedom and renewal, plus you'll have much more space to create a usable closet system.
4. Make your closet unique.
You use your closet every day – from picking out the day's outfit in the morning to putting it away at night. Adding personalized touches and accents that make your closet more inviting and warm mean that you'll look forward to staying organized. Plus, a beautiful and personalized closet can really tie a room together! California Closets offers a huge assortment of different color, finish, and material options to help you create the closet of your dreams.
