If an organized closet feels overwhelmingly out of reach, I’ve got just the guide to make things easier! With these 10 clever closet organization ideas, you’ll learn how to make the most of the space you have, and turn it into the aesthetic closet of your dreams.

Start with a Purge

There aren’t many things that feel as refreshing as a good decluttering!  It’s amazing how much lighter you feel when you let go of the clothing and accessories that are no longer working for you. And you can feel good about the sustainability of donating, selling, or repurposing a portion of what you clean out. Make 4 piles: Keep, Sell, Donate and Trash. 

Rotate When Seasons Change

Make a stack of the items that are currently taking up valuable real estate in your closet, but are not going to be used until we have a big seasonal change. And don’t forget shoes! You don’t need flip flops handy during freezing winter temps.

Organize Clothing by Type and Color

You’ll be able to find items much quicker and easier, and your clothes will stay in better shape when they have a designated home. No more flipping through 27 items until finally finding the one you need!

Uniformity - Same Hangers, Same Baskets

Uniformity is not only more pleasing to the eye, but it’s more pleasing to the brain as well! Pattern repetition is less of a mental load, making it easier for us to process. It will reduce stress and create a beautiful look that you’ll be proud of! Don't forget to label the baskets as well for extra organization!

Use Pull Out Organizers

Valet rods are an ingenious solution for organizing your closet and planning out your outfit. Not only do they help you quickly organize your closet, but they also help you plan what you’re going to wear each day and make it easier to steam the wrinkles out of your clothes. Installing a slide out valet rod can be a great way to help you stay organized and look your best.

Go Vertical!

When you start thinking of vertical solutions, you’ll find extra space you didn’t even realize you had. Whether it’s adding an additional shelf up top, or one at the very bottom, making use of the space up to the ceiling and down to the floor is the way to maximize even the tiniest closet.

File & Roll Items Instead of Folding

Filing clothes is just what it sounds like – arrange them just like folders in a filing cabinet! To roll your clothes, lay them flat and fold them in half lengthwise until the piece is about 5 inches wide. Then simply, roll it up like a sleeping bag, and place it inside its container.

I hope this guide helps you feel more equipped to tackle organizing your closet once and for all. Tao the link below to read the full post, and don't forget to follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome!
