Closet Organizing Ideas
I believe you should measure your closet, planning the space and taking inventory of your items - including a printable inventory list to take right to your closet and start today! If you are in the beginning phase and just thinking about organizing your closet or ready to take the first step. You must have a vision.
The Wall and Walk in Closet Designs offers their own and different advantages and disadvantages, even the best closet organizing idea won't work if you realistically don't have enough space. If you have done everything you could to organize you closet and still need more space then you need to find out what other options are available.
Store it Right the First Time
My best closet storage idea comes from a value I had been taught when I was little. And that is...do things right the first time. If you want to
keep your belongings clean and well maintained (and I know you do!) you must store them properly the first time around. Believe me when I say your clothing will not forgive you.
Should I mention, if you have to store your clothes in the first place and have already organized your closet then you need to ask yourself these questions...
Do I really need all of my clothes?
Do all of my clothes fit me?
Are they free of stains, rips and are in generally good condition?
Are they in style and will I wear them again?
Have I worn them in the last year?
If you answered no to any of these questions you need to evaluate the need for extra storage as opposed to donating the pieces of clothes in good condition and retiring to the garbage those that are not.
If you find you genuinely need to store some clothes then its on to the closet storage idea list:
The Closet Storage Idea List
Do place only clean clothes in storage. Even if clothes appear clean machine wash or dry clean prior to storage. Some stains are not always easily seen or come out in time and cause items to stain or yellow permanently.
Don't store clothes in dry cleaning bags - especially leather. The bags hold onto humidity again causing clothes to yellow over time.
Use the right type of hanger to maintain the proper shape of the garment.
Don't hang sweaters or anything knitted or crocheted. They are best folded in order to keep their original shape.
Store folded items in fabric bags so that the fabric can breath while keeping out pests.
Use padded hangers for linen or delicate lingerie or robes.
Any keepsake items such as children's clothing should be kept in a cedar chest after folded. For an extra added touch fold using acid free tissue paper.
Try to store clothing in an environment that is constant in temperature and low humidity. Avoid a damp basement or unpredictable attic if at all possible.
Wool, silk, feather, and cotton all attract pests - particularly moths. Although using cedar hangers, cedar balls, or moth balls will all deter these pests they cannot eliminate them all together. Your best option is a cedar lined closet or chest.
If you choose to implement one closet storage idea please just remember to take your time and do it right. The work of moving your clothes for the season can definitely pay off in the extra room you aquire and the clean and properly maintained clothes that you unpack from storage the next season.
