Organization and Storage Tips from Expert Closet Organizers
Our closet organizers have some expert tips for you when you’re looking to conquer closet clutter.
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.
