Once you have a walk-in closet in your apartment, you won’t want to live without one. But if you don’t have an organization system in place, things can get messy — fast. To keep things neat and tidy, check out these simple bedroom closet organization tips.
Keep Stuff Off the Floor
Think of your bedroom closet’s floor as a last resort. Before placing anything on the floor, do your best to utilize every inch of space you have in your closet. Here are some recommendations for making the most of your closet space.
Hang Your Accessories – Use the back of your closet door or your closet wall to hang accessories. Designate a spot for handbags so they don’t end up mixed in with your other items.
Hang Your Shoes – Invest in an over-the-door shoe hanger, or create your own shoe rack.
Use a Laundry Basket – Keep your laundry basket inside your closet to keep dirty clothes off the floor.
Soda Can Tabs – Stick soda can tabs them over the hooks of your hangers through one hole. Now you can use the other hole of the tab to place a second hanger, which lets you double-up on space.
Shower Rings – Take a few shower rings and clip them onto your hanger to instantly double, triple, or quadruple the number of hangers you can fit in your closet.
Boxes Are Your Friends
Boxes and containers make bedroom closet organization easy. The smaller the boxes, the more precise you can get with your organizing. We recommend using boxes for small clothing items like underwear, swimwear, and belts. If you want to take it further, organize your tiny stuff, like jewelry, in pint-sized containers.
Pay Attention to Placement
When organizing your closet, you’ll want to arrange your stuff in a way that makes sense. Place the stuff you wear most often at the top so your favorite outfits are easily accessible. Pieces you don’t wear much can be stored underneath the rest of your clothes.
Try Color Coordination
If you’re having trouble visualizing how to best organize your bedroom closet, try doing it by color. This method makes it easy to find whatever you’re looking for exactly when you need it. Plus, a color-coordinated closet looks nice, which will motivate you to keep it tidy!
