It’s that time of year again – spring cleaning! For most of us, the transition into spring is a chance to breathe new life into our home and our routines. As the Henderson and Las Vegas area closet storage experts, we also want to encourage Nevada homeowners to use this time to think about the state of their closets; there’s no better time than now to tackle the clutter and disorganization winter has left in its wake. Read on to learn how to help your closet shed its winter layers and emerge chic and sleek for the new season!
Do: Completely Empty Your Closet – This first “do” might be the most intimidating for homeowners. While it can seem daunting to completely empty your closet, it’s the only way to truly start fresh. Once your closet is empty, you’ll also be able to deep clean the closet itself to ensure your clothes are stored in the freshest environment possible.
Do: Evaluate What You Have Vs. What You Need – With all of your clothing on display, spring cleaning is a great time to cull through your wardrobe to eliminate what’s unnecessary. While capsule wardrobes are all the rage right now, you don’t necessarily need to pare your closet down that far to feel noticeable organizational effects. A good rule of thumb to follow as you sort through your clothes is that if you haven’t worn something for a year (barring special occasion wear), you likely won’t in the future.
Do: Re-imagine Your Storage Systems and Routines – As you start to reassemble your closet, don’t simply return things to their original places. Spring cleaning is a great time to rethink your routines and come up with new storage solutions for your everyday organizational struggles. Do you hate having to hang up your clothing after doing the laundry? It may be time to install some new shelving. Is your closet bursting at the seams? A double rod system could be an easy solution to make better use of your vertical space. At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re here to help you brainstorm and implement systems that work for your life.
Don’t: Forget About Shoe Storage – Shoe storage is often one of the last portions of their closets that our clients reassemble, but prioritizing your shoe strategy in your closet will help make your routines much easier to maintain later on. Think carefully about how you can put your closet to work to keep your shoe collection tidy; building other routines around your shoe strategy, instead of cramming your shoes at the bottom of your closet when all is said and done, will leave the whole of your closet feeling much more organized in the long run.
Don’t: Stress If It Isn’t Done in a Day – And, finally, recognize that projects like these take time. If the project feels too overwhelming, though, we’re here to help. Give us a call at Closet and Storage Concepts Nevada, serving the Las Vegas and Henderson areas, and we’ll be happy to help you transform your closet into an organized oasis.
