I Am Bored! Now What? Organize Your Closet! Part III
Phase 3: Organization
Step 4: Bring in Closet Storage Solutions
The next step is installing some form of closet organization. Figuring out the right closet storage solutions for your particular space can be challenging. Luckily, there are tons of great options for closet storage solutions, including closet systems, but most people can get away with installing a few budget-friendly closet organizers.
Closet storage solutions aren’t going to create more space in your closet; however, closet organizers, storage solutions, and closet systems can help to make more storage space accessible to you. Examples:
· A step stool will make it easier for you to reach the top shelves of your closet.
· A double hang will make better use of horizontal storage space in the closet.
· An over-the-door shoe rack can turn your door into the perfect place to store either shoes, accessories, or both.
You might be tempted to throw your hands up, pull out your credit card and buy an expensive closet system. Don't do this. Measure the space, assess what you already have, and then plan your closet accordingly. Buy only what you need to store your clothes, and re-purpose what you already own, if possible. Small bookcases, cubbies, and baskets are great for storing handbags, shoes, accessories, and gym clothes.
Finally, don't forget to measure a space three times before buying a new storage item. Nothing is worse than carting something home and finding it's just a smidge too wide.
