10 Tips To Get Your Closet Organized
An organized home can do wonders for your happiness, and one of the easiest places to start is your closet. Classy Closets shares 10 tips to get your closet organized and help you keep it organized long-term.
Having hampers built in your closet is the best way to stay organized with items that are no longer clean and hanging. Otherwise, you wind up with a basket on the floor, overflowing with clothing that looks messy.
2. Donation Hamper
Have a donation hamper in your closet in order to easily organize what clothing you want to donate. We all have things in our closet that we do not truly need, and donating clothes is a great, easy way to set aside items you’re willing to part with.
3. Coat Hangers
Select a skinny hanger instead of a large plastic hanger in order to save space and keep your closet streamlined. Unlike plastic hangers, skinny, fabric covered hangers do not damage your clothes. If you’re going to do only one thing in your closet, make sure you get the same type of coat throughout your closet. Everything will look cleaner and more organized. Don’t believe us?

4. Use Your door As A Mirror
Maximize space in your closet by installing a door that can also be used as a mirror. Classy Closets has a product that can be used as a mirror and a door, allowing you to store items behind the door instead of wasting wall space to hang a mirror.
5. Purge Unnecessary Items
To create more space, it’s always a good idea to go through your closet and get rid of items that you don’t need or use anymore. A good rule of thumb is to get rid of items you haven’t used in six months to a year.
6. Place Items In Logical Spots
Store the pieces of clothing and shoes that you use most in easy to reach spots. Formal dresses, interview suits or highly-seasonable items should be hung toward the back of your closets. Place shoes that are for formal wear on high shelves. Keep everyday items close to the front for easy access.
Store clothing pieces that do not hang in baskets in order to maximize storage. For example, roll up your ties and put them all in the same basket. Keeping like items together helps the closet look cleaner.
8. Color Coordinate Your Closet
Make yourself happy everyday when you look into your closet by color coordinating items. Organize the clothes you hang by color. Keep the same colors together and your closet will look beautiful.
9. Stagger Your Shoes
Stagger your shoes on the shelf by placing one shoe backward and one shoe forward to save space and fit more shoes.
10. Adjustable Shelves
Move shelves up or down, or even consider adding or removing shelves to fit your specific needs. Having adjustable shelves make organizing your closet a lot easier and customizable.
