New year, new you. That’s how the old saying goes. At Closets For Less, we think, New Year, NewHome Organization! Now is the best time to reflect on all of your storage and organization needs within your home. You may be getting ready to take down those holiday decorations and while standing in the middle of all the chaos, you may realize, there is no organization! This is where your custom closet design company in Buckingham comes into play.
Is your closet full to the brim? Are you looking all of those boxes of Christmas decorations and thinking, there has got to be a better way? Below are some tips, tricks, and ideas to solve your organizing hang-ups.
Slim hangers that are the same color will help your closet look nice and neat. Be sure to pick slim ones but never wire hangers!
Adding a shelf in your closet a foot below the ceiling to neatly line up items like handbags utilizes every inch of your closet.
Are small closets the problem? Fear no more! Use as much vertical space as you can to avoid crowded, wrinkled clothes. Move the shelf and rod up and then have a professional add a built-in drawer system with a bin for folded items and a pullout shoe rack.
If you waste time in the morning hunting for stuff in your closet, put items you use often on display or in easy-access bins.
Metal hooks you can hang on a bar are the easiest solution for storing bags and purses. Baskets maintain organization, and labeling holds you accountable. Tote hangers, for instance, wrap right over a clothing rod and allow you to hang your handbags to free up more space.
The above ideas are great for wardrobe closets and smaller spaces but what about all those holiday decorations that are currently sitting in a pile in the middle of your living room? Most of us store our decorations in garages or attics. The key to organizing all your stuff is to put like items in plastic bins and clearly label them. For instance, all of your ornaments should go in one bin. This way, you know exactly what is in that box next year. For storing those bins, your closet professional can create built-ins so those totes slide easily into place and there is no guessing where things go next year.
When it comes to organization in the New Year, think about your needs and the actual space you have in your home. Once you figure out what you need, call your custom closet design company in Buckingham to help you finish figuring it all out.
