Living in an apartment can mean you have limited storage space, so you need to make the most of the closet space you have. We know it’s hard to keep everything organized and in the right place so here are some tips to help you keep your closets organized.
One way to organize your closet is by getting rid of the clothes and accessories you no longer wear. While it may be hard to part with that jacket you got on sale a few years ago, get rid of it if you haven’t worn it in at least 6 months. Take inventory of your clothes and donate the clothes you aren’t wearing, leaving you with added space in your closet and drawers.
Get a shoe rack
If you are really limited for space and need to keep your shoes in your closet, you will need to get a shoe rack to help get your shoes off the floor. Shoe racks can help you keep your shoes organized but they also let you see your shoes so you know exactly what shoes you have and you’ll never forget about those perfect heels ever again.
Add Some Lighting
No matter how small your closet is, adding some lights is going to help you stay organized. Part of staying organized is being able to see what you have in your closet and where everything is located. Ikea sells lighting strips, or you could opt for something a bit less expensive and just stick a battery operated light at the back.
Upgrade Your Shelving
One way to ensure your closet stays organized is making sure you make use of all the space you have. You can also add an extra bar for hanging or use of your top shelf. Prioritize the way you organize your clothing so that the clothes you wear most often are at eye level and the off-season and less worn pieces are put on the top of the closet.
Focus on Your Hangers
While it may seem like a minor detail, getting matching hangers will really improve the look of your closet and help to make things look organized and streamlined. Wire hangers ruin your clothing so it’s better to cough up the extra money to invest in hangers that will keep your clothes looking their best.
In order to keep your closet clean, empty it out and take inventory a few times a year, and continue to declutter as you see fit.
