Living with a Small Closet
Living in a house or apartment with a small closet is a burden that many of us live with. It doesn’t have to be a death sentence for your fashion wardrobe. With a little bit of organization and creativity, any closet space can be made to fit your needs. Here are some tips for making the most out of a small space:
Donate clothes that don’t fit
A thorough inspection of your wardrobe is sure to find some items that no longer fit. Don’t waste precious space with something you cannot wear or haven’t worn in years. Chances are you won’t miss it if you haven’t worn it for quite some time.
Organize the space
Go through your closet and throw out any trash that may be there. A plastic bag can take up a surprisingly large amount of room. Look out for any extra or broken hangers that may be lying around.
Maximize the top shelf
People will organize their closets based on what they can see. Purchasing a small step stool can help you reach the top of your closet and can also be used other places around the house.
Make your closet brighter
Adding a light, or painting your closet a lighter color, will make it appear larger.
Utilize the Doors
Consider adding over-door storage. This can be a great way to store shoes and other small accessories that would otherwise take up space.
Use containers that maximize vertical space.
Investing in stackable shelves, drawers, and bins can be a great way to save space. This will also help you find things easier
Rotate out-of-season clothes
Keep organized by storing your out-of-season clothes under your bed.
Regularly rotating out clothes
Organizing a closet is an ongoing effort. If you buy new items and add them to the closet, you’re going to need to subtract something out.
Taking these tips into consideration can help you make more efficient and effective use of your closet spaces, regardless of their size.
