Invest in your closet by using good-looking storage solutions
Air out your clothes. When you’ve just worn a garment that doesn’t need to be cleaned, hang it on a line for a few hours before returning it to the closet to stop residual oils and odours from spreading.
Protect your shoes. Custom sliding shelves let you display your footwear neatly while keeping the dust off. Don’t line up your shoes in a straight line. Instead, flip one pair backwards and you’ll fit more on the shelf. Keep the Left shoe facing forward and flip the right shoe, then slide it back a little. This works well with both heels and flats. Put your sandals inside each other.
Use all available space. Build overhead shelves for items you don’t use every day, like hats and scarves. Place additional containers below hanging clothes.
Store costume jewellery in stackable fabric boxes and store in a closet, on a shelf or in a drawer. Displaying favourite pieces, trendy pieces or new pieces is also fun. In addition, a dresser or vanity table is also a great place to lay out fun pieces and encourage the art of enjoying and wearing what you own.
Group items in your closet by category: Shoes, Blouses, T-shirts, Cardigans, Sweaters, pants, shorts, skirts etc. Generally, after you have grouped your wardrobe by category you can then organize each category even more by grouping into subcategories. A popular way to do this is to simply arrange the clothing by colour, from lightest to darkest.
You can arrange blouses by sleeve length, and pants by leg cut, etc. Dresses could also be arranged in subcategories of: casual, dressy, evening, corporate, cocktail and gowns.
Always arrange your clothes in the way that makes the most sense to you and also easiest to maintain.
How to maximize Drawer Space
Instead of stacking your clothes on top of each other, arrange them in the drawer so that you can easily see everything you have at first glance. This also maximizes space as you will be able to hold more clothing in each drawer. Try it, you’ll see! This system also works well with t-shirts, tank-tops, and gym clothes.
