A cluttered or disorganized closet is the worst thing to deal with when you are rushing to find the perfect outfit before work, school or anything else you will be doing that day. A disorganized closet not only hinders your routine but may end up hiding your favorite clothes. At Heirloom Clothing, we have researched tips and tricks to organize your closet so that you can find all your favorite outfits and layering shirts with ease.
Maintaining an organized closet is always an ongoing process. However, there are certain things you can do to make sure that you never spend more than 20 minutes rearranging your clothes ever again. Here are several steps that will help you keep your closet organized for good.
Begin by Decluttering
Before you even begin reorganizing your closet, you will need to go through all your stuff and get rid of some of the things cluttering your space. Sift through your clothes by type like pants, dresses, tops, layering shirts, accessories and undergarments, and then sort every item into the proper category. This will help you stay calm and not get overwhelmed. As you sort through all your stuff, keep the clothes you know you love and will wear often. If you have old clothing that no longer looks good, swap it out with a replacement. If any item of clothing isn’t something you absolutely love, get rid of it or donate it.
Clean Out Your Closet
Once you have thrown out the clothes you don’t wear and have found all the clothes that you want to keep, clean out your entire closet. Take everything out so that you can start over fresh. If you do this once, you won’t have to do it again and again as long as you continue to maintain your closet.
Plan Out Your Closet Space
Once you have cleaned out your closet, don’t rush to put everything back in. Make a plan of exactly where you want everything; where you put your layering shirts, your blouses, your pants, shoes and so on should be planned out. This will help you organize your closet quickly and efficiently.
Hang Anything That is Delicate or “Fancy”
When it comes to things like dress shirts, dresses and fancier clothing, you’ll want to hang them to avoid any damage. However, there is no sense in hanging up a layering shirt if it means sacrificing space.
Create a Visually Appealing and Orderly Closet
You can also plan out how you are going to make your closet organization visually appealing. Many fashion experts suggest putting like things together — hanging your shirts and pants and organizing them by color. Start at the beginning of the rainbow and order your shirts so that you can find matching pieces faster. This will help you know where everything is and make it easier for you to not lose your favorite clothing. Matching hangers can also help your closet look even more visually pleasing.
