Tidy Up Your Cluttered Closet Using These 5 Things
Men are notorious for being all messy, but the fact is — it could be anyone, regardless of gender. More often than not, being messy is more about us procrastinating and cluttering. It may get worse if you don’t do anything about it.
But here’s our advice — take a leap of faith, get up and start your day by making your bed and cleaning up your room. Why? These small doses of achievement work in wonderful ways.
Now that we’re done with our little pep talk, we’d like to enlighten you with a few things you can utilize to organize your closet.
A walk-in closet can get messy real quick since it’s usually out of sight. Let’s be real, we tend to ignore closets for the longest because no one tends to look there. But no matter how much you procrastinate cleaning, there comes a time when you have to tidy them up!
Here is a list of five things to introduce in your closet to tidy it up this time around:
BLACK VELVET HANGERS
Black velvet hangers have a thin profile that maximizes storage space. The best part? You can’t ignore the posh vibe they carry! Velvet hangers also have garment preservation properties. They prevent your silky wardrobe from slipping off — as it usually does with conventional hangers.
So, if you have an overflowing closet, it’s a great idea to introduce a few black velvet hangers for your outfits. Filter through your pile of clothes, iron them and hang your priority outfits in an orderly fashion. It’s an affordable and effective hack to beautify and organize your closet!
USE WALL HOOKS TO ORGANIZE ACCESSORIES
Simplest but the trickiest! It takes somebody with an excellent aesthetic sense to make proper use of wall hooks. If you’re only going to end up hanging your jeans, trousers, and T-shirts, you aren’t really doing much. Hanging these items on wall hooks will still make your closet look cluttered.
So, what’s the hack here then? How can I utilize wall hooks to organize creatively? Well, instead of hanging your one-time used clothes on them, you’re going to use them to hang your handbags, hats, belts, etc. Doing this will not only free up space in your closets and drawers but also make your closet look good!
Where do the towels, dirty clothes, and bedsheets go? In separate closet baskets! You can get statement baskets from Walmart or Amazon for as little as $10.
Use colorful baskets or theme-relevant baskets to declutter your closet. All the dirty clothes that you keep stacking in a corner will go in one basket. Don’t load your cupboards with bedsheets and bed throws — fill them up in a separate basket on one side and use the cupboard space for hanging your clothes!
Closet baskets are excellent if you’re just generally messy or don’t feel like cleaning up your closet every other day.
USE DRAWER DIVIDERS
Drawer dividers will help you organize your undergarments, belts, and watches, in an orderly manner inside a drawer. These dividers can also be used to store important documents or files that can’t be stored elsewhere.
STACKABLE OPEN-FRONT SHOE BOX
Say no to traditional shoe racks! More often than not, we position them on the floor and that takes up a lot of ground space in your closet. Instead, find empty walls and install minimalistic boxes on them. You could do anywhere between 9 to 12 boxes or cabinets. Make sure they have an open front.
If you’re married or share a room, each roommate can take one wall and use it to flaunt his or her shoes!
Understand that not all things will work for everyone. We all have space limitations so improvise accordingly. Choose whatever best fits your style, space, and routine. If your closet is cluttered because you own hundreds of outfits with no place to store them, it might be your cue to lighten up your wardrobe. Perhaps you can donate some — or open an Instagram thrift store to auction them away!
