The cold weather months call for sweaters and jackets galore, and while they may keep you warm outside, they are not the easiest items to store in your closet. Winter clothes tend to be bulkier than spring and summer clothes, which can lead to a cluttered closet. Below are four tips for better storing those winter essentials in your wardrobe.
Figure Out What Items You Want to Store in Your Closet
The first step to organizing your closet is to figure out what you need to store there. If you’re keeping your jackets and coats in your bedroom closet, you may want to move them to an entryway closet. Coats tend to take up the most space, so moving them to a coat closet will free up space for you to store other winter essentials. Coats and Jackets also tend to get the dirtiest as they are our outer layer and more prone to getting muddy or wet. Moving these items to an entryway closet prevents those winter elements from getting all over the house.

Fold Your Sweaters
Folding your sweaters is not only a great way to preserve your clothing, but it’s also a great way to make space in your closet! By folding your sweaters, you prevent them from being stretched and torn since folding puts less strain on them than hanging. It can also free up room in your closet by utilizing vertical space instead of horizontal space. Save those hangers for blouses and dress slacks, and store your sweaters vertically on shelves instead!
Store Your Shoes on Shoe Racks
Storing your winter boots and shoes on shoe racks is another excellent way to maximize the vertical space in your closet. Many shoe racks have multiple storage shelves, giving you more space on your closet floor for bulkier items. Keeping shoes on shoe racks instead of on your closet floor also helps make mornings easier, as you don’t have to sift through a pile of mismatched shoes. Closet & Storage Concepts offers wall units with built-in shoe rack storage to meet all your shoe storage needs.
Add Hooks to Your Closet Door
Adding hooks to your closet door is a great way to store the winter accessories you can never find a proper place for. Hats, Scarves, and belts are a few examples of items that are perfect to store on hooks. These items can easily get lost amongst the other clothes in your closet. Hanging them on hooks makes your closet more organized and your winter accessories more easily accessible.
