Organizing your closet can either be difficult or very simple to do, and if you want to keep it simple, it requires a bit of planning before you dive right in. Read on as Handyman Connection of Lexington discusses how to organize your closet in five easy steps.
- Allocate Some Space
If you want to properly organize your closet, make sure to allocate a space where you can place your clothing. The bed or a cleared out area of the room works well. This might not seem like an important step, but you’ll have an easier time organizing your closet if you have a tidy place to set your clothing aside.
- Categorize Your Clothing
The simplest way to organize your clothing is to categorize them. For example, you’ll want to separate clothes you wear indoors from your outdoor clothing. You’ll also want to allocate a separate drawer for your formal wear and underwear, too. Categorizing your clothing makes everything tidy and you’ll know exactly which closet, drawer, or cabinet that piece of clothing you’re looking for is.
- Get Rid of Items That Shouldn’t Be in the Closet
It might surprise you how many miscellaneous items there are in your closet. Get rid of these and store what belongs there properly. If they are supposed to be part of your closet, we suggest you get a small container for those items so that they don’t mess up the organization of your clothing.
- Get Rid of Old Clothing
Sentimentality aside, you should get rid of old clothing that you don’t wear anymore. Not only does it consume the already limited space of your closet, but it clutters it, too. Get rid of shirts, pants, and anything that’s several sizes too small or too big to free up some much needed space in your closet.
- Clean the Closet
Finally, we recommend that you clean your closet at least once every month. It might surprise you how dirty a closet can get with all the hidden clothing tags and strips of cloth lying around in the shelves. When it’s time to organize the closet, don’t forget to do a quick cleaning so that it’s easier to do.
