We all have been charged of buying just way too many clothes and other accessories and not being able to find a single thing to wear when we need it. Storing clothes is such a pain and nightmare and in the modern homes of today where the closets are dwindling in size over time, organising your belongings in a way that makes it convenient to find stuff in an emergency has become a critical skill that people often pay good money to get done professionally. While many people suggest just throwing the things you don’t want out, that solution is quite uneconomical and can be hard if you have any personal sentiments attached to the items of clothing. However, with these nifty ideas to help you improve your closet storage game, you can make the most of the amount of space you do have to play with.
- Divide and conquer
One of the best ways to tackle the issue of lack of organisation and accessibility is to add some partitioning into your closet. While people think that unified spaces are better for maximum utilisation of the space available, chances are, if you have a big drawer, it is not organised and is very cluttered. Using some partitions for your wardrobe drawers and cupboards can help in designating spaces for individual items that can help minimise clutter.
- A new space for your bras
This can help eliminate the need for a big underwear drawer and reduces the frantic rush we all go into when we are late for work and can’t find the bra that goes with our outfit. Just hang your bras on the inside of the closet doors by attaching hangers to each other and hang the bras one below the other. This will help them keep their shape as they will be hung by the straps and ensure that the cups are not smashed down. This can also help keep the bras up for display for easy choosing.
- DIY picture rail shoe rack
If you lack the space to store your expensive shoes properly, why not make them a part of the décor? Use a simple picture rail to help hang all of your shoes on the wall. This can transform a wall into a statement piece and also provide you with a way to find all of your shoes at a glance to minimise the time it takes to put a look together.
- Organize the scarves
One of the most annoying parts of your closet that are generally one of the hardest to keep organised is the scarf drawer. If you are a big fan of scarves(as you should be), this can be a great way to organise them down and transform them into a sort of art piece for your home. You can even use this trick to sort other small wardrobe essentials like neckpieces and gloves and keep them at hand. Take a long strip of wood and mount it onto your wall. Affix some hooks or clothespin onto the board with nails or hot glue and hang your items by them.
- Jewellery display
Another cool idea to create a space saving jewellery storage DIY is to use a simple mount board, push in a few hooks and display all your beautiful jewellery to help you quickly mix and match your pieces. Additionally, this stops the all-dreaded tangling that is inevitable if you store the bits in a drawer.
- Bag display
If you have expensive bags, don’t waste them by shoving them into the wardrobe under piles of clothing. Create a custom shelving unit to help display your bag collections and keep them away from the closet for a longer lifespan.
