Spring has arrived across Louisiana and Southern Mississippi, and summer is just around the corner. With temperatures still fluctuating at times between cool and warm, it can look like the family has every piece of clothing they own undecidedly strewn all over the place. As it gets warmer and consistently stays, it will be time to put the cool clothes away for good until the winter season.
Our team of custom closet professionals at Louisiana Custom Closets understands that there is more to storing cool weather clothing than just placing them in boxes, drawers, and the closet floor. Whether the current closets are large, small or in-between, our designers will work with all homeowners in their homes, and design a functional, beautiful and organized storage spaces and closets.
When it comes to storing those cool weather clothes, there are some questions that need to be answered by local homeowner. Will there be many long sleeves, long pants and sweaters to store? Is it preferable to store them in drawers or in closets? It is important to note that homeowners will have several storage options with the following organizational ideas.
Our team from Louisiana Custom Closets offers three great ideas for winter storage:
- Folded or hangers: Different materials and different types of clothes are better hung on hangers and some clothes can be folded. Clothes made of natural fibers should be hung to avoid stretching. Dress slacks made of wool, rayon and other fabrics should be hung up to avoid creases. Dress shirts, button up casual shirts and blouses made of silk, cotton and other crisp woven fabrics belong on hangers. It is also important to use the right type of hanger for different types of clothing. Our designers can explain the different types of hangers to use as they integrate the right storage systems.
- Cool season outerwear: Jackets, vests, even gloves can be folded and stored on a shelf in the closet. Louisiana Custom Closets can design any closet to easily store an array of off-season attire, ready to use again in December and January.
- Clean clothes first: Another tip for storing cool weather clothing is to clean everything first before putting everything away. Any type of stains or discoloration could become permanent if not addressed before storage.
Storing clothes in any season does not have to be a daunting task and makes things much easier when they are needed again.
