Purge Occasionally

When you have so much space to work with, it’s easy to find yourself piling stuff on top of stuff on top of stuff. Unfortunately, this is a packrat mentality and will only lead to making it more difficult to find things that you truly love and use. 

Every now and then make sure that you purge a few items from your closet by donating them or selling them. Decluttering will help you free up your valuable space so that you can easily find what you’re looking for. Not to mention, donating is a wonderful way to give back to the community.

Buy Storage Solutions

An organized closet is one that has items fit into smaller compartments. Investing in storage solutions like baskets and shelves is a great way to make the most of your space without piling everything on top of itself. You can use different solutions for different types of items, like a shoe rack for shoes, a jewelry organizer for jewelry, and of course hangers for dresses and coats. If possible, you should also consider adding built-in drawers for easily storing away smaller items like socks and underwear.

Group Categories Together

Grouping categories together is a great way to organize your closet so that it’s not only more visually appealing but also easier to access. Whether you decide to group things into seasons or colors, it can totally transform the way your closet is laid out. 

This makes it considerably easier for you to find things and also put outfits together. When you have to dig through multiple piles that have no rhyme or reason it can make getting dressed much more complicated.

Don’t Forget Vertical Space

All too often we’re so focused on the floor space and we forget about all the space we have above! You can almost double the space of your walk-in closet by creating additional storage above. It’s as simple as installing hooks on the walls for hanging your accessories like scarves and bags.

For items you only use for special occasions, consider putting them in boxes on shelves all the way on the top. By using your vertical space, you won’t lose a single inch of your closet, making it even more effective for storage.
