Keeping an organized closet can often seem like an unattainable goal. There are, however, some simple steps you can take to transform the space, and make your life a little easier. If your wardrobe is falling into disarray, read on for how to take back control and “hack” your closet.
Separate Your Wardrobe Into Seasonal Sections
This allows you to cut down on the number of items you need to fit in your closet without actually having to get rid of anything. This will also streamline your morning routine when deciding what to wear because the only things in your closet available for you, are fitting for the season.
Make Use of the Door
This often-underutilized area of the closet actually provides convenient extra hanging space whether it be for hats, jewelry, shoes, or other items which don’t seem to have a place in your wardrobe. Make great use of this additional space provided by your closet by adding hooks or hanging racks.
Break Up Space
Separate your closet into sections which allow for grouping items by type. In addition to helping you separate some of your clothes into smaller divisions (such as tops, pants, or coats) this hack will also create a more visually appealing space that draws the eye in. An easy way to accomplish this and double your hanging room is to simply stack two or more closet bars vertically. For even more storage space, try adding a small shelving rack or cubby system down the middle of your closet to divide the space again!
Keep Shoes Off the Floor
Clearing floor space is one of the surest ways to make your closet seem lighter and more organized. Adding a simple rack or shelf near the bottom of your wardrobe is an easy way to give your shoes a proper storage place and keep them from falling into disorganized piles. The same goes for bags and other items: hang them on designated hooks or in bins instead of on the floor.
