Closet Storage Ideas

Here are some simple closet storage ideas I use to organize closets. These closet storage tips are easy to implement and flexible enough to meet everyone's particular closet storage needs.

Closet Storage Ideas

The closet storage ideas can be broken down into four simple steps:

  • Remember the purpose of the space you are organizing
  • Declutter
  • Categorize items
  • Designate a place for everything

That's it!

Let's take a closer look at what these four steps mean.

Step one, remember the purpose of the space you're working to organize. This simply means to think about how you'll use the space and organize it accordingly. For instance, if you're organizing the entryway closet, you'll only want to keep things in there that you'll need as you're coming and going from your home.

Step two, declutter, is simply that... Get rid of anything that's broken, you don't use, and or don't absolutely love because there is no way to organize clutter.

Step three, categorize like items. Simple stuff here, put like things together. For instance, if you're organizing the linen closet you'll want to stack same sized sheets together for quick and easy bed linen changes.

Step four, designate a place for everything. Let's go back to the linen closet example in step three. After you declutter and categorize what's left over, look at what needs to go back into the space you're organizing. In the linen closet example, look at how many sets of sheets you need to fit in there and designate enough space for that. For instance, you may need one shelf for twin sheets and another for queen sheets and another shelf for bath towels and so on.

Below are the simple tips I use broken down by closet that won't break the bank to organize your clothes, linen, coat, baby's, and kid's closets.
