When purchasing an outfit, shoes or accessories you don’t think about the clutter that can accumulate when we take them off and toss them in your closet at home. Organization in your wardrobe closet is essential, but it’s often hard to achieve. You do not have to constantly get up and travel through your clothes just to get to the door or stumble over shoes that are on the floor within the closet just to get a jacket. So take a look below and discover some ways to help you clean-up and structure your apparel.
For the Hanging Space
When hanging your clothes you want to keep in mind that the space should have function and beauty working side by side. So in some cases dividing the long hanging spaces in a two bars (if possible) to hang shorter garments within your closet is a good idea. Not only will this help to house more clothes but it can create a versatile arrangement for the space. Also depending on the type of clothing you can change the hanger and hanger color for more mix-up variety.

Fold the Clothes don’t Pile
Sometimes our folded clothes can become mountains of piles instead of stacks of folds. To reverse this issue keep it simple, flip over a deep shelf using the built-in brackets as dividers and separate the sweaters from the shirts, the shirts from the undershirts and so forth. Another way to add more space for your tops is to take out the bottoms, like your jeans. Take the jeans that you have separated and hang them on the wall by their belt loops with S-hooks so you can have a grab and go effect. Also roll the casual pants and place them in the slots of a shoe organizer.

Shoes & Boots
When you are organizing your shoes you need to have the Missouri state slogan, “Show Me.” Technically all of your shoes should be off the floor for easier access and angled shelves usually work best because they give a tilt that forces the shoes to be visible. More storage places for your shoes are with cubby holes or shelves with stackable plastic boxes. A few tips for boots are to keep them vertical (less space is use and helps them to stay in great condition) and keep them suspended in the air (use mini clip style hangers or sturdy steel over the door racks).

Make Your Bags a Statement
Again this is similar to the organization of your shoes. Set up your bags as works of art. Snag the ideas from boutiques and display your bags behind glass from a revamped china cabinet or curio case so they can remain dust-free and stylish for your home. For clutches, use Lucite dividers in the closet that way they are propped up and kept looking nice.
