Most people use a seasonal closet storage method that involves packing and unpacking clothes every summer and winter or whenever the weather changes. However, a year-round closet could save you a lot of time and hassle. The following are some ways to set your closet up for success year-round.
Get Rid of Clutter
Before you start organizing your clothes, clean out your closet. Our closet organization experts recommend dumping any non-seasonal items that haven’t been used in the last three to six months. You may need to apply a different timeline for seasonal items.
At the same time, it’s also important to have a plan in place to help you avoid accumulating items you don’t need. Such a plan may include limiting your shopping habits or saying no free hand-me-downs from friends and family.
Assess Your Closet Space
Once you know what you’re keeping and what you’re tossing, it’s time to assess your closet space. If you find you don’t have enough room, some simple modifications may be in order. Adding hooks to the back of your closet door, for instance, can provide space for coats, purses, scarves and other items. Storage baskets can hold various small items that tend to get lost in the clutter. Dividers can help tame evening bags and handbags.
If you find that you don’t have enough storage space for your wardrobe, your Philadelphia Closet & Storage Concepts team is here is to help. We are experts at creating a custom closet that suits your exact needs and increases your storage space.
Rotate Seasonal Clothing Items
Any seasonal items that you are currently using should be front and center in your newly-organized closet. Think thick coats and sundresses that may not be suitable for weather all-year-round. Pieces that you plan on using for the next season should be stored at the back, or in another section of your closet. Rotate items when the season changes to make it easy to access what you need when you need it.
Bear in mind that it will take time to create a year-round closet storage system that suits your exact needs. Adapt our tips to suit your needs and workflow. Transitioning to a year-round closet will save you a great deal of time and hassle in the long run. Instead of packing and unpacking clothes, putting boxes in storage and taking them out of storage, ironing wrinkled clothes, and so on, you can spend the extra time relaxing or enjoying the company of family and friends.
