3 DIY Tips On How To Organize Your Closet


OK - it’s time to call out the elephant in the room. We all have that one closet at home that we have been avoiding for months now. You know, that closet; the closet you have to cram things in just the right way in order to get it to fully shut… Blame it on not having the time to clean it up, but in reality the truth is you just don’t know how to go about organizing it yourself. Have no fear, we’ve gathered a few easy DIY tips on how to organize that piled-up closet:

1. Color Coordination

One of the easiest ways to reorganize your closet is with color coordination. This might sound simple but it makes all the difference in the long run. Yes - we can admit that color coordinating is awesome because of how it looks aesthetically, but it also allows you to grab what you want, when you want it - eliminating the pain of digging through unwanted clothes. By organizing clothes in a desired color scheme, it will get rid of all of the times you say “I forgot about this top”. To help further, here are a few suggestions on how to break it down:

→ group clothing by “type” (i.e business/casual etc.)
→ divide each type into "color groups" (i.e darks, lights, neutrals, etc.)
→ line up color groups in “rainbow” order (ROYGBV)

2. Storage For Out of Season

Another great way to reorganize your closet is by creating a storage system for every season. The easiest way to go about this storage process is by gathering anything around the house that can be used to keep your clothes in, such as plastic containers. Once you’ve gathered those up, you can neatly fold and stack out-of-season clothes inside of the containers/storage option of your choice. For those who tend to be clothes hoarders, here’s an idea, photograph and number the containers so you can keep track of where you store your beloved garments. If you’re looking to make the most of your closet space, our design team is specialized in maximizing the functional space in your closet - and it’s much more affordable than you think :) .

3. Seasonal Coordination

Although this can be similar to that of color coordination, the two can still be separately categorized. Rather than organizing articles of clothing by color, simply organize the hangers in your closet by season. For example, fall and winter clothes could overlap; in order to be able to easily find clothes specific to the month, denote (i.e) the left side of the closet to winter and the right to fall. If there are clothes that fall into two seasons, try organizing those in the middle. A simple rearrangement of your clothes will go a long way in terms of easy accessibility.

We believe these DIY methods are both effective and efficient. At the end of the day the way you decide to organize your closet is completely up to you. Allow your creative mind to explore the possibilities of closet organization and remember, have fun with it!
