First, you’ll need to declutter your space.  Create 3 piles for your clothes and accessories, “keep”, “donate”, and “trash”.  With an exception for clothes that are only worn for special occasions, if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in the past year, chances are, you’ll never wear it.  A great clothing hack is to turn all of your hangers to face the other way.  After you wear a piece of clothing, hang it back up in your closet the opposite way.  Whichever hangers are still backward after a few months, are clothes that you can most likely get rid of.

When you are storing your clothing, store your most-used items at eye level, less-used items low, and least-used items up high.  This will keep the overwhelmed feeling when trying to pick out an outfit to a minimum.  Organizing your clothes by color, style, or type makes finding things easier and faster.  Also, make more room by sorting your out of season clothing in boxes under your bed.

Combine different storage ideas such as shelves, drawers, hangers, and boxes.  Use cubbies to store shoes to easily find a pair, use shelf dividers for folded clothes and accessories to keep them organized, use a pull-out racking system for pants and slacks to allow easy access, and use stackable laundry baskets for an easy sorting and space saving technique.  Make sure to also use your vertical space, above and below the hanging racks in order to maximize storage.

Make sure your closet has plenty of lighting.  Usually, closets don’t have windows in them and you want to be able to see exactly what’s in your closet to easily find things.  If you have a walk-in closet, you may also want to add mirrors, which can visually enlarge the space.  You can also replace the doors of your closet to be sliding mirrors to save space and make your room look larger.

With a great new closet from J. Serven & Son Construction, and these helpful tips for organizing, cleaning out your closets will be a breeze!
