Posted on: 16 May 2022


Is your closet a mess and you're unsure about what to do about it? If so, consider following these tips that will apply to any closet.

Use Matching Thin Hangers

It's time to get rid of all the various hangers that are mismatched and taking up too much space. One of the first things that you should do is to get matching thin hangers for your closet. Not only does it create a unified look, but it will help you fit more clothing into your closet because the hangers are thin. 

Hang Your Clothes In The Right Direction

While you are putting all your clothes on new hangers, it will help to get in the habit of placing your clothing on the hangers in the same direction. You want to put them on the hanger in a way so that when you pull it off of the rack you naturally look at the front of the item to get a good look at it. 

Organize Your Clothing By Type And Color

When it comes to where each clothing item goes, you'll want to reorganize the closet by type and color. You'll find it so much easier to find what you are looking for when you start by narrowing down the type of item you want and then focusing on all your similar-colored items. No more flipping through everything to find that perfect item for your outfit. 

Use Drawer Organizers

Have drawers or shelves in your closet? It can help to keep these spaces organized by using drawer organizers. This helps create a spot for everything in your drawers and prevents things from getting messy once items start being removed. The dividers of the organizers keep things in their place and make them easy to find. 

Install Hooks For Additional Storage 

A simple way to add more storage to your closet is to add hooks to hang items on. If you don't want to put holes in your wall, you can even buy hooks that attach with a strong adhesive that won't damage the walls. You can use these hooks for storing belts, handbags, or ties, or you can hang up your next day's outfit in a special place. 

These are just a few ideas for organizing your existing closet with what you have. If you are ready for a complete closet makeover, reach out to a closet organization professional for ideas on how to improve the space.
