Five Steps to Organizing your Closet like a Pro

Are you tired of opening your closet door only to be greeted by a chaotic mess of clothes, shoes, and accessories? Are you tired of mountains of laundry with nowhere to go? Is finding your favorite outfit like embarking on a treasure hunt through a jungle of fabric? It’s time to regain control and transform your closet into a sanctuary of order and efficiency. Follow these five simple steps and you can start organizing your closet like a pro.

Step 1: Declutter and Purge

Before diving into the whole home organization process, it’s essential to declutter your closet. Take all of your clothing and accessories out and evaluate each item. Ask yourself: Do I wear this? Does it fit me well? Is it in good condition? Is it in Style? If the answer is no, it’s time to let it go. Donate, sell, or discard items that no longer serve you.

Step 2: Categorize and Sort

Once you’ve pared down your wardrobe, it’s time to start organizing your closet like a pro, categorize and sort out your remaining items. Group similar items together to make them easier to find. The most common categories include under garment, tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, and accessories.

Within each category, you can further organize by subcategories such as color or season. This not only improves the visual appeal and style of your closet but also makes it easier to locate specific items when getting dressed.

Invest in storage solutions such as baskets, bins, hangers, drawers and racks, dividers to keep smaller items like socks, scarves, and belts neatly contained.

Step 3: Maximize Space with Smart Storage Solutions

Make the most of your closet space by having custom closets systems installed by the experts at Space Age Shelving & Design to help maximize the closet or storage space you have. Install shelves and drawers for folded items, rods for short and long hang; including dresses, dress shirts and suits. Include space for shoes, belts, ties or jewellery with racks, hooks, inserts and specialized shelves.

Consider investing in multi-functional storage solutions such as slide out baskets, hampers or floating shelves. These versatile options can maximize vertical space and provide additional storage for accessories or seasonal items.
Install an island with drawers and shelves for additional storage if the space permits. Built-in laundry hampers, help to hide your dirty clothes and make laundry day easier. A long list of these and other accessories are available at Space Age Shelving & Design.

Step 4: Maintain a Systematic Approach

Organizing your closet is only half the battle; maintaining it requires ongoing effort. Adopt a systematic approach to keep your closet clutter-free and organized.

Commit to regular decluttering sessions to weed out any items that no longer serve you. Make it a habit to return items to their designated spots after each use. A little effort each day can prevent clutter from piling up and ensure your closet stays organized in the long run.

 

Step 5: Edit and Refresh Regularly

As seasons change and your style evolves, it’s essential to periodically edit and refresh your wardrobe. Conduct seasonal wardrobe audits to assess which items are still relevant and which ones can be retired. Take note of any gaps in your wardrobe and make a list of items you need to add to enhance your collection. Investing in quality pieces that align with your personal style and lifestyle ensures your closet remains curated and functional.

By following these five steps, you can transform your closet from chaos to order and reclaim control over your wardrobe. Remember, organization is not a one-time task but an ongoing process. However, installing custom storage solutions in your home can make it easier. With dedication and consistency, you can enjoy a clutter-free and efficiently organized closet that sparks joy every time you open its doors.
