Simple Ways To Organize Your Closets


Rent To Just because they are behind closed doors doesn't mean we don't need to make what are inside our closets neat and orderly. Here are simple solutions to make your bedroom closets pleasing to the eye.

Okay, so we're a little obsessed with organizing. And we love closets. So we thought we'd channel our obsession into something helpful: a list of ways to organize your bedroom closet.

Declutter. Use Discardian's Closet Trick (It's accepted wisdom that with very few exceptions, it's likely that clothing that you haven't worn in six months is clothing you will not wear again. It could be donated and used by someone who needs it.) to get rid of clothes you don't wear.
Store your most-used items in plain sight, less-used items below, and least-used items up high.
Use coordinated hangers for a clean look that will care for your clothes and help you stay organized.
Use an umbrella stand to hold odd items like a yoga mats.
Use boxes, cubbies, shelves, or a hanging organizer to sort shoes. (I personally prefer to use stackable shoe boxes which has a photo of the shoes inside.)
Keep folded clothes or accessories neat with shelf dividers.
Use vertical space (both above and below the closet rod) to store more.
Add lights in your closet between the door and the storage area.
If you live in a small space, replace traditional closet doors that swing out with curtains or hanging screens.
Use stackable laundry baskets that you can easily carry to the washing machine.
Hooks can create extra storage space when you hang them inside the closet.
Keep your closet in shape by treating it like a small room. Pay attention to lighting, wall color, and floor coverings.
Make more room in your closet by storing out-of-season clothes in boxes up high or under the bed.
Color coding your wardrobe can make finding things easier (although it would be tough to pull out anything from these stacks of sweaters).
Invest in your closet by using good-looking storage solutions.
A rolling cart with coordinated boxes can be pulled in or out of the closet and used for clothing or office supply storage.
Use suitcases to store out-of-season linens, blankets, or sweaters.
