The Best Way to Organize Your Closet
Once your closet is lean and clean, it's time to get things organized. It’s important to note that you’ll need to know how to organize clothes, before you can tackle your closet.
Store your clothes by category.
Keep like items together to make your closet look tidy and your clothes easier to find. Unless you have room in your home for seasonal clothing storage
, store off-season clothing in the far reaches of your closet and the clothes you wear most often toward the front.
Not every piece of clothing deserves a hanger!
One of the best ways to keep closets organized is to only hang up clothes that have to have a hanger. Dresses, lingerie, suits, and dress shirts should be stored on hangers, but the rest of your clothes can be stored more efficiently.
Use matching hangers.
If you want to give your closet a streamlined look, use matching hangers. This may seem like a small thing, but once you see it in place, you'll see what we mean. And cheap plastic hangers won’t do!. Choose velvet hangers for delicate dresses and tops and attractive wooden hangers for outerwear and heavy suits.
Stack sturdy clothing.
Save drawer and closet rod space by stacking sweaters, jeans, and other bulky items. Sturdy, thick fabrics won't lose their shape when you stack them so you can make the most of your vertical closet space. Plus, your neat stacks will look great and make it easier to find your favorites.
