Are you frustrated from the overflow of “stuff” in your closet? Then it’s time to organize and redesign. The California Closets Kansas City team put together three simple steps to get you on the path to a cleaner, more organized closet that stays that way for homeowners living in Kansas City, Blue Springs, Greenwood, Independence, Lake Lotawana, Lake Tapawingo, Lake Winnebago, Lees Summit, Raytown or Loch Lloyd.
- Get Rid of Everything You Don’t Need
Every season, conduct a seasonal purge of all of the items in your closet. This includes: shoes, t-shirts, sweaters, and even miscellaneous items. Ask yourself if you still use or wear these items. If you don’t, discard or donate to a friend. This will greatly clear up space so that your closet is only filled with items you love. When spring and summer roll around, store away any sweaters, wooly socks or boots to make room for warmer weather clothes and vice versa. That way you will be able to easily look for all of your items without having to dig through the mess.
- Come up with a Closet System
First things first when you want to put a new closet together: come up with a closet system. A closet system is essentially a blueprint of what kind of closet you want, depending on what room it’s in and what it needs to organize. A foundation is designed and put into place that would be suitable for the room you’re in and the space you have. Drawers, shelving and cabinetry also serve as the foundation for your new addition. Closets come in all shapes and sizes: a reach-in closet for smaller spaces, a walk-in closet for larger spaces, or a wardrobe solution that can move with you.
- Install Custom Accessories to Organize Your Items
Once you’ve selected what kind of closet and foundation you’re working with, it’s time to organize all of your items. The secret to organization lies in the details. Closet accessories are meant to organize every t-shirt, tie and earring so that you always know where everything is. This includes:
- Shoe Storage
- Jewelry Drawer Dividers
- Shelf and Drawer Dividers
- Pullout Racks and Accessories
- Hampers and Baskets
- Slat Wall System
