Organizing closets can be a challenging task. Many people keep a variety
of different things in their closets and it can be difficult to locate
suitable places to put things. This article will deal with tips for
storing things that most people have in their closets and will try to
focus on tips that can be used across items. The key to organizing your
closet is to develop a system that you can follow. Here are a couple of
suggestions for a workable system.
Divide up your hanging clothes into areas based on certain common
dimensions. Don't leave your clothing on one rack - this is a recipe
for wasted time as you are searching for what clothes to wear. One way
to divide up clothing is by color. By putting clothing into color groups
in separate areas, you can easily match clothes and develop a system for
locating them quickly. Another way to divide up hanging clothes is by
season. The final way to divide them up is by function (shirts, pants,
dress clothes, etc.). Remove all stains before you store your clothes as
stains can spread.
The average closet users also has a variety of miscellaneous items. The
most effective way to deal with these is to use a "cubby" system. This
type of system is like shelves, but divide the space down into more
managable groups than a shelf. You can add additional cubbies to increase
space. Moreover, the use of cubbies provides a clean, and organized look
in addition to making it easier to find different items. You can also
add matting to preserve the clothes and the shelves. As your are
organizing your closet, be sure to dispose of items that are too old, or
are no longer used. The bottom section of the closet should be used for
shoes and unusual items.
Happy Home decorating!
