Closet Reorganization

by | Jan 1, 2024 | Home Maintenance | 0 comments

Nothing says fresh new year like a fresh new closet. We know it’s easy to neglect your personal spaces while you take care of everything else, but an organized, enjoyable closet will help you feel ready to take on the day. With a little planning, you can give yourself a fresh, organized closet you’ll be happy to use in as little as a weekend or two.

Everything Out:
The first step is to pull everything out of your closet. Once your closet is completely empty, vacuum and wipe down any shelves, drawers, and rods.

Sort and Settle:
Sort your clothes into categories, for example, long-sleeved shirts, slacks, t-shirts, sweaters, and so on. While sorting, evaluate your items and remove any items you don’t wear or that don’t make you feel your best. Once you’ve settled on which items you’ll keep and which will go, you can take stock of your items and consider your storage needs.

Consider Your Needs:
Look at the existing tools and spaces in your closet and what you need to accommodate your items. If your current system isn’t working, what would you need to do to make it better? From custom-installed full closet systems to DIY shelves or bins, there are storage solutions to fit any size closet and any budget. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

  • Tiered hanging rods
  • Wall hooks for purses, hats, scarves, belts, etc.
  • Shelves and drawers
  • Shoe racks, shelves, or over-the-door hangers
  • Specialty pull-out racks for pants, ties, scarves, etc.
  • Baskets or bins for top shelves or floor storage
  • Freestanding armoire if you need more space.

Put Your Things Away:
As you put your things away, maintain your sorted categories. If you like, you can additionally sort by color or season. Place your most used items near the center and at eye level for ease of use. Try out new folding patterns to find the best fit for your shelves or drawers.

Special Touches:
Make your closet feel even more special with a little something nice. Consider painting the interior of your closet a pretty color; put down a cozy rug, design some shelves as display areas, hang pictures, and make sure your closet is well-lit. Add closet upkeep to your monthly routine so you can enjoy this new closet feeling every day!
