How Do I Get My Closet To Be More Functional?

November 3, 2015

If you lack organizational skills in the closet department, an easy way to get your closets in order is by adding a closet system that includes options such as shelving, cubby storage, hanging bars, drawers, hooks, and baskets. By adding these organizers, you are able to keep your closets well organized, functional, and clutter-free.

Try these to make the most out of the space that you have to work with:

  • Shelving; By adding shelving to your closet space, you are able to store things more efficiently and effectively.
  • Drawers; By adding drawers to your closet space, you have the opportunity to pull out the drawers when you need them and keep them closed when you don’t need to access them.
  • Hooks; By adding hooks to your closet space, you can hang your hats, scarves, purses, belts, and jackets.
  • Racks; By adding racks to your closet space, you can hang things easily. You will be able to find what you are looking for in no time.

Here are 3 things to remember when getting your closet space organized:

  1. Everything should have a designated spot
  2. Less confusion leads to a much happier person! If you keep clothes in specific places, you will have less piles of random stuff in the corners of your closet. Keep the dresses with the dress, shorts with shorts, jackets with jackets, and shoes with shoes. This will make things so much easier to find, this saving you a lot of time.

  3. If you aren’t wearing or using it, throw it out
  4. This might be easier said than done but this is a rule to live by. If you haven’t worn something in two years, it’s unlikely that you will be putting it back in your clothing rotation anytime soon. Don’t just throw everything out and start from scratch, but really if you didn’t love something when you bought it, why keep it?

  5. Avoid putting piles of clothing or bins in your closet
  6. This is just more clutter and you need things to be in plain sight. You are able to work with what you have, locate it when you need it, and save yourself a lot of time and effort at the end of the day.
