How to Conquer Messy, Cluttered Closets

How to Conquer Messy, Cluttered Closets

One of the things that can make our homes less enjoyable to live in is disorganized closet space. It's quite depressing to look in your closets every morning and not be able to find what you need.

And if you are selling your house, having a cluttered closet will damage your chances of getting the best price, because people will view cluttered closets as a sign your house doesn't have enough storage. So here are some tips to organize your closets.

Invest in a closet organizer

Imagine how you (and potential buyers) would feel to see your closets tidily organized! A closet organizer is probably the best way to achieve the look you are going for — and it doesn't have to be expensive either.

You can buy ready-made units that fit into most closets. Most use a modular system that allows you to mix and match units and fit them together as you wish.

You can choose between units made of solid panels or wire systems. Alternatively, you can mix and match them both to meet your needs.

Closet organizers should include shelves for bulky items such as sweaters, drawers for smaller items, and rods for clothing that needs to be hung up. Consider also storage for shoes, such as a rack that hangs on the back of a door.

Getting it organized

When designing your system, make sure you consider things such as the length of the clothes that are to be hung, and how much space you need to devote to items such as sweaters. Consider which items you need to access easily on a daily basis and which can be stored out of reach.

This is also a good opportunity to go through all the items in your closet and get rid of those you don't need — perhaps some things you didn't even know you had!

A closet that isn't packed with useless stuff is easier to keep organized and will keep your clothes from getting crushed.
