How to keep your closet organized

Updated: Dec 30, 2021

Don't we all scroll through social media and see beautiful closets and wonder if they always look that neat and clean or did they really spend hours organizing that closet just for show.

Well, there's a fifty-fifty chance, but you can always try your best to keep yours as tidy as possible.

Whether you have a walk-in closet, a wardrobe, or keep your clothes in a dresser, these tips will be useful, though you might adjust them to your needs.


 

  1. Start by decluttering your clothing storage: Throw all your clothes on your bed (or a clean rug) to see everything, have three piles, one to keep, one to donate, and one to throw away. If you see yourself having trouble with letting go of things, have someone be with you while you're decluttering and have them ask you why you want to keep it.

  2. Organize your clothes by either colour, length, or by their category: You know when you just stand there saying you don't have anything to wear, yeah, but the thing is your clothes are just mixed up and it seems like you don't have anything because you can't see what you actually have. Speaking from my own point of view, this tip is really useful and makes picking an outfit really easy.

  3. Hang anything that is delicate and fancy: If you have a sparkly dress, a suit, a very sturdy coat, or just anything that would get wrinkly, hang it! You don't wanna risk destroying the clothing piece. If possible also cover it up with a hanging garment bag you could find anywhere.

  4. Use coordinating hangers: Using hangers that are the same colour help a lot, they give an overall clean look and don't distract the eyes because of the different colours.

  5. Make use of corners: Now corners are underrated, you could add a shelf where you could display some accessories, sunglasses, hats, or just add some decor!

  6. Use your storage thoughtfully: For example store small stuff in a vanity drawer, hang your bags and belts, roll up your jeans.

  7. Update your clothing storage system: If you really wanna go that extra mile for a perfect closet, do it! There are many stores that offer personalized ideal closet designs, where you get a closet that fits all your needs, you could choose a colour, design, measurements, drawers and racks.
