Organizing the closets in our bedrooms can be one of the hardest organizational projects to accomplish. It's hard because the closets in our bedrooms get a lot of daily use and if left unchecked, clothes storage can get out of hand quickly.
In addition, most of us have a few different sizes of clothes and items we purchased on sale, but never wear all jumbled together.
All of this can add up to one big mess! Bedroom closet organization calls for an excellent system of organization that can withstand daily use while being functional and able to store all this stuff.
We ask a lot of our closets, so let's put them to work for us and start organizing!
First off if your bedroom closet is an unruly mess, you will need to unload the whole thing and clean it. Hit the cobwebs on the ceiling and corners, dust off shelves, and vacuum the floor.
Now you're ready to start your bedroom closet organization. First step, decluttering…remember, be ruthless!
First, scrutinize your clothes storage space. The most inefficient use of bedroom closet space is a single rod with a shelf up above.
Take inventory of your clothes and shoes and design a space around that. For instance, if you have a lot of shirts, then buy a double hang closet rod to double your shirt hanging space. For shelving, you can purchase inexpensive racks to stack and fold clothes neatly.
Check out the Container Store and look at the elfa bedroom closet organizers. Provide them with the dimensions of your bedroom closet along with your storage needs, they will custom design a closet organizer for your needs.
I had to fit clothes and toys for three kids in one closet, so I contacted the Container Store for their bedroom closet organization systems and it worked out beautifully.
The best shoe storage I've found are clear plastic shoe boxes that I label with what's inside. Categorize your shoes by season and usage. Store frequently worn pairs front and center for easy access. Stack the clear shoe boxes on shelves, the floor, or best yet, a rolling cart.
To make getting dressed in the morning a snap, hang like items together and categorize by color. For example, hang all shirts together, then organize by color.
Purchase tie hangers to sort and organize ties... same goes for belts. Remember to purge these items getting rid of stained and worn out ties every so often.
To save space for hanging clothes, use the following bedroom closet organization tips
If you have a walk-in clothes closet, then store your underwear in there too. This way you can go into the closet in the morning and emerge fully dressed.
If you have the luxury of an extra bedroom in your home, then turn the whole thing into a walk in closet! Install shelving and closet rods along the walls of the room. Place a sitting chair in there to put your shoes on and a mirror to check yourself before you leave.
Remember to look around your home to see what can be used to organize your clothes closet cheaply. Do you have an unused bookcase in storage? Great, pull it out and place it in the closet to fold and stack t-shirts on. Your options are as limited as your imagination.
These bedroom closet organization tips have worked for me to bring sanity and order to my bedroom closet and I know they will work for you too.
