Closet Organization Ideas For Your Home
Add a Second Rod
The quickest way to double your closet space is to add a second rod. This will give you nearly twice the hanging space for your clothes and can take even the smallest of closets and breathe new life into them. I did this in my first condo in Chicago and it was life-changing!
Shelves for Shoes and Sweaters
Besides clothing, shoes are usually one of the least organized items whenever we design spaces for our customers. Typically, they are all thrown in a pile on the floor making them difficult to find. At a minimum, add a shelf above both of your clothes rods to add extra space to nicely store shoes, sweaters and other items that can’t be hung up.
If you have the luxury of having some extra space, I’m a big fan of adding a few shelves in the middle of the lower portion of the closet.
Adding drawers to your new closet will change your life! They offer easy access to socks, workout clothes and other smaller items. You can also add smaller storage boxes to store jewelry.
Get New Hangers
Once you have your new closet organization system installed, go the extra mile and get coordinating hangers for your clothes. Not only will it look beautiful, but the consistent hangers will allow all of your clothing to line up nicely next to each other.
