The Right Way to Redo Your Closet

Your closet is the one area that should be the most organized, but it often becomes the most chaotic. Having a tidy closet can make your life so much easier. Below are some top tips to redo your closet:

1. Sort

The first step and some would say the most important, is taking stock of what you currently have. Sort through all your items and get rid of things you don’t need. A general rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it within the last year, chances are you won’t wear it again. Donate, sell or re-gift while creating some space for new clothes.

2. Organize

Next, you should organize your clothes by category. Put things in groups based on their size and length and whether or not they need to be hung up. Categorize your items by color or season for extra organization.

3. Use your Space Wisely

While your closet is empty, give it a deep clean and measure it. When you have the dimensions, you can start planning the layout and how all your stuff will best fit into the space.

4. Pick Your Hangers

Having matching hangers gives your closet a much more aesthetically pleasing look overall. If you have delicate items then choose padded hangers and use wooden ones for more sturdy items.

5. Use Shoes Boxes and Shoe Organizers

If your closet does not have a shoe organizer built in, then you can buy one. Plastic shoe boxes are a great choice for formal shoes, and you can use a shoe organizer in the back of a closet door to store sandals and casual attire.

6. Use Baskets and Drawers for Smaller Items

Put items like underwear, socks, belts, and scarves into separate baskets and small drawers to keep them organized. Transparent drawers are a good choice as you can easily see what’s inside. If you place these higher up in the closet, have a stool nearby so you can access them easily.

An organized closet can help organize your life. With these helpful tips, you’ll be sure to have the coolest closet on the block.
