Clothes Closet Organization. I have talked about what doesn’t work in a closet Lets talk about what CAN work in a closet. How you set up your closet is really up to you! In my opinion there is no right way or wrong way to set up a closet. I believe it is as individual as the person using the closet. I really stress to my clients to tell me about their clothes wearing habits so that we can organize in a way that is the most convenient and pleasing to them.
If you are having closet issues or are now wondering why it take forever to find certain items in the morning, then I have a few examples of what might work for you:
1) Put all pajamas and sleepwear on hooks behind the closet door. It’s easy to get to and you wear them EVERY night.
2) Put all work pants and tops on a shelf that is eye level and easy to reach. Again you were them at least 5 days a week.
3) Get a couple of baskets and put all of your exercise/gym/running gear in them and place them neatly on the floor off to the side.
4) Have all suits/formal dresses in the back of the closet if you don’t wear them regularly but need them out for events on occasion.
5) Instead of hanging my sweaters, it might make more sense to fold them. You may gain more room.
6) Analyze how much of things you have (how many dress shirts, dress pants, jeans, sweaters) You may have more sweaters than shirts. Hang all the shirts up and fold all the sweaters.and put away in a drawer. You want to maximize the space yo have the best way it can be used.
These are just a few examples of how things can work for you in a closet. The goal is work smarter not harder. Group things together and have the most commonly used items front and center and easy to reach.
