When it comes to the bedroom closet, if it’s heaped full of clothes, shoes, purses, and bags, then it’s time to sort through the clutter. The disorganization can make finding anything a nightmare, especially in the morning. To help simplify your life, here are quick tips from our pro organizers.
Create Zones in the Closet
One of the most important things is to abide by the grouping rule. This means to group similar items together in different places in the closet.
Doing so will make it easy to know exactly where to look for a certain item. For example, group skirts together, blouses together, and so on. Some people even sort them further by color.
If it seems impossible to have all the clothes you love in the closet without feeling messy and overcrowded, consider adding storage options. The addition of wall shelves, for example, can make it significantly easier to group sweaters, pairs of shoes, or something else.
By making use of vertical space, you will maximize the usefulness of the closet. Plus, shelves are affordable, especially if you find them on sale.
Sort Your Clothes
You knew this one was coming, and here it is. The chances are good that some of the items there are ones you don’t wear. It could be that you’re simply tired of them, they no longer fit well, or they’re damaged in some way.
Whatever the reason, take them out of the closet to sort into piles. One pile is for donation, another pile is to fix, and the third pile is to toss if it is beyond repair.
Also, our organizers suggest putting aside seasonal garments that you’re not wearing right now. Simply put them in a rubber tote and rotate them as seasons change to pare down the wardrobe.
But It’s Difficult to Part with Things
The final tip from our organizers likely won’t surprise you as we know peoples’ habits well. Now that you’ve purged once, do it a second time.
Why? It is difficult for most people to part with clothes as the garments hold memories. Plus, it’s easy to think, “One day I might wear this.”
So, go through the closet one more time. Are there any more things you don’t need that are still hanging in there?
How a Tidy Closet can Ease the Mind
When you walk into the bedroom closet every morning, the last thing you want is to feel overwhelmed by clutter. That’s not a great way to start the day.
Similarly, as you change into sleepwear at the end of the day, it’s irritating to be in a messy area. That feeling does not align well with the restful evening you were planning!
Why put yourself through that every day? Instead, look forward to an organized closet with a clean floor that contains only the items you wear.
