Whether you own a walk-in closet or a reach-in space, fall is one time of year when drawers begin to feel scattered, racks look cluttered, and wardrobes need a good ol' fashioned weeding.
Getting your storage space organized for the cooler months need not be complicated. Let's look at these five steps needed to get your closet in tip-top condition!
1. Cull The Closet
The changing weather means it's time to switch our tanks and t-shirts for sweaters and long sleeves. As you pull articles of clothing out of deep storage, take some time to consider which does or does not deserve a space in your closet.
Not into that style anymore? Less interested in that color pattern? Donate, upcycle, or hand it down to another family member. Your wardrobe will thank you!
2. Set A Pattern
The best-organized closets follow a system of organizational rules or patterns. Some of the most common of these include:
- Color coordination: Clothing is organized into groups of similar hues.
- Types and styles: All pants are hung together, all blazers, all blouses, etc.
- Outfit groups: Pre-build your outfits and hang them together in the same area.
Feel free to use one or all of these organizational strategies to keep your closet in check.
3. Upgrade Your Accessories
Despite your best intentions, your closet may need more storage for your personalized accessories. Awkward items, especially shoes, ties, and jewelry, often work best in cabinets with additional cubbies, drawers, or racks for storage.
You can design a workaround for smaller wardrobes or rely on temporary fixes to get the job done. However, it's always best to look at future-focused solutions, such as custom-designed closets. You can get a free quote for your project needs with Louisiana Custom Closets anytime.
4. Fix Your Lighting
The easier you can see into your closet, the more organized you'll be. You have a few lighting options to choose from:
- Running lights around your baseboards or corners of the wall
- Pop-on battery-powered lights that stick to walls or ceilings
- Motion sensor or rack-style lights
It's best to consider a combination of all three (or more) for the best closet suitability.
5. Consider An Expansion
As your wardrobe grows and your needs start to change, getting a total closet makeover may be in your best interest. A custom closet allows you to store, organize, and stock your space exactly the way you want, filled with the accessories and features you want for your home and family.
And with Louisiana Custom Closets, your dream closet might be just a phone call away.
