How You Need To Organize Your Closet System to Fit Your Wardrobe Today

Jan 26, 2008
Perhaps your old closet system was perfectly fine when you first started using it. It may have had all the necessary equipment to store all your things. However, anyone's wardrobe tends to change over time; sometimes drastically. When that happens, your closet may no longer suit your needs. Then it is time to make some changes in your closet.

Before you rush out and start buying new storage devices, it is always good to take note of what you already have. Look objectively at the closet space as it sits with all your clothing in it. You need to ask yourself a few questions.

1. Is there enough room for dresses and other long garments?

2. Are there plenty of double hanging bars for shorter items of clothing?

3. Is there a place to put sweaters that cannot be hung?

4. Is there anyplace to hang things you use everyday, such as robes?

5. Do you have a place for accessories?

6. What are your accommodations for shoes?

7. Are there items that should be in the closet that you do not have a space for in there?

When you have determined the pluses and minuses of your present closet system, you will be ready to begin to do an overhaul. You can go a long way by sitting down with graph paper and sketching your closet as you wish it to be. Keep in mind all the answers to the questions you have considered.

If you have been getting by with one tall bar for all your hanging clothing, you will find that putting in double hanging bars will increase the amount of space in your closet. This is because all your short clothing will be stacked double height. It will not be harm or wrinkle the clothes because there is ample room between the bars.

You can still have room for your long hanging clothing if you leave some of the space in your closet with a single bar. To determine how much room you need, hang all your long things together loosely with room to spare for future purchases. Then measure, and you will know how much to leave in a single bar.

If you do not have any shelves in your closet, it is a good time to buy them when you redo your closet. Do not make the mistake of piling them up with household odds and ends, though. Use them for items that you cannot hang, but want to keep in your closet. A good arrangement is to have box shelves that will hold several garments each.

Put hooks in for robes or ties. Accessories such as jewelry or scarves can be put into baskets. There are a number of shoe storage options that you can find at any home improvement store. Just make sure you have included all the clothing you want in your new closet design.

If you put some time and thought into organizing your closet, you will have more room for your things. Your clothing will be more convenient to you. Most of all, you can think about it once, and it will work for you for years to come.
