Fall is here! With a new season, we often experience changes in the weather, what we eat and drink (welcome back PSL), and our wardrobes. At Closet & Storage Concepts, we want to make sure you have the best advice to stay organized with the new season. Here are some of the top areas to focus on from your local Scottsdale, Arizona team.
The bedroom closet, whether you have a reach-in or a walk-in, is one of the first culprits for an organization session. This is because it’s used often and can even be on display! With the changing season, although we might not feel it temperature wise in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas, accessories are a great way to transition into the cooler months. With that in mind, here are some ways to keep your accessories in order.
Hooks will become your best friends when finding space to store all your scarves. Be sure to choose a finish that coordinates with your closet system. You can also try small hand towel rods you’d use in your bathroom, or try a DIY option using a hanger and shower curtain rings. To incorporate scarf storage into your closet system, try slide out tie racks.
Protect your jewelry with smart storage solutions. Use velvet inserts in your closet system drawers for a luxurious look and feel. You can even try multiple layers if you have a large collection. For long necklaces, you can also use a tie rack. Be sure to contact one of our designers to help you find the best option to keep your jewelry organized as our jewelry inserts can come in different finishes, styles, and colors to meet your needs.
With temperate weather in Scottsdale and Phoenix well into October, it will be no surprise that you may see east coast friends and family flocking away from the cold and into your home for a short vacation. Make sure your hallway closet is cleaned and organized to give a good first impression and to make sure there’s enough room for everyone’s items! Hallway closets also tend to house seasonal items such as coats or even sports gear. Making sure it’s organized now will help you stay clutter-free into autumn and as the holidays approach.
Kid’s Closets, Playrooms, and Craft Rooms
Don’t skip your kids’ areas! Pay attention to your children’s storage areas as a lot of the clutter and mess that accumulates in a home is often from children’s toys, arts and crafts, and other items. With Halloween almost here, make sure old costumes or dress-up items that no longer fit are donated. Now is a great time to purge too-small clothes especially as the weather slowly begins to turn. Get the craft room organized so you’re ready to conjure up a fun costume for your kids, or get the holiday gift wrapping area prepared since the holiday season can often sneak up on you.
Take time to get your kitchen pantry organized, especially for all the fall treats. Try labels and see-through containers to keep your foods in their place. Containers that allow easy visual access can help you find items easily – no more digging around for that one particular spice. You may even find a way to stash the candy as you prepare for Halloween! Starting with your pantry can help you get the rest of your kitchen organized.
