The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet
If you open that closet door, and things are falling to the floor, or you cannot seem to find anything in there that you were looking for without having to move five other things, you need a closet organizer.
A closet organizer is going to make your closet seem bigger, because you are then putting things away in a more organized manner.
The organized closet - The closet that is organized will stay that way if you continually put things back where they belong. A closet with just a shelf is going to be able to hold just so many things, but if you add boxes, and more shelving, and you add racks and hangers, you are going to be able to put so much more in that space. The closet organizer is going to allow you to put more in the closet, but still be able to find all those things at the same time.
On the top of the closet - On the very top of the closet is where the items will go that you don’t use that often. The items for winter, or the items for summer, the items you use only when you go out on vacation perhaps. The clothes you wear the most; The jackets and clothes you wear often will be kept in the center of the closet where you can see them easily. The clothes you wear only occasionally, such as when you go skiing or roller blading or to the horseback riding trails will go in the back of the closet. You know you have them, you can find them easily but they are out of your way. You can find what you need and when you need it.
Hooks and racks - Additional hooks and racks are used to put special things in the closet such as ties, belts, kites, skates and so much more can be hung from pegs like those. You can create hanging hooks or you can leave them out of your organized space.
To start organizing any closet space you need to sit down with a paper and pencil. You will draw out what you have in the closet now, and then erase and change as you see what you have in the closet already needs to be changed to fit. For example, if you need four racks for shoes, you can put all the shoes going up the wall, or you can have them all stacked at the bottom of the closet. The choices are yours, but be sure to plan out your needs, and the rest will flow easily as you head off to the store to purchase what you need.
