Are you trying to deal with a small closet? Here are tips for keeping it organized and maximizing the space to get the most out of it.
Let’s talk small closets – specifically small ones that you need to hold all those clothes that you’ve managed to accumulate.
Anyone who has ever lived in a home with small closets can testify to the challenges that they present! Every closet and it’s storage needs are different, but there are basic steps that can be taken to make the most of your small space.
1. First things first – clean out your closet.
If you are serious about maximizing your closet space, you must be ruthless! The general rule of thumb is to get rid of anything that you haven’t worn for a year, or more.
2. Now that you’ve cleaned out the unwanted items, remove everything that is left.
This is a great time to spiff up the interior of your closet! A fresh coat of paint in white or another fun color? Wallpaper or stencil the back wall or even the back of the closet door.
3. make a pact with yourself to keep it that way.
Even the most fantastically organized closet can quickly become a disorganized mess again. The few extra seconds you take now can save you minutes (or more) of searching for something later, not to mention the time it will take for you to reorganize the closet when you’ve simply had enough of the mess.
