If you’re planning to deep clean and organize your home this spring, don’t forget to organize your closets. They can easily become cluttered, disorganized, and a source of stress, but they don’t have to be!
Whether you’re sprucing up that hall closet that’s become a catchall for all items without a home or looking to make space for a fresh summer wardrobe, we have tips to make closet organizing a success.
You need to start with a blank canvas. Empty your closet’s contents into a staging area where you can go through each item and determine if it stays or goes.
Be sure to dispose of anything broken beyond repair or expired, relocate items that should be stored somewhere else in the home, or donate belongings you haven’t used in the last year.
While your closet is empty, take this opportunity to wipe down shelves and vacuum.
Is there underutilized space in the top or bottom of the closet?
Many closets, especially in older homes, have one upper shelf and feet of unused space at the top of the closet. Consider adding easily accessible storage containers for out-of-season clothing or lesser-used items.
If you’re short on space, it can be especially helpful to pull seasonal items out of a closet and store them safely in a garage, attic, or basement. Heavy coats for the snowy Chicago winter, for example, are bulky and take up unnecessary closet space in the warmer months.
If you have ample closet space, you could put lesser-used items like Christmas decorations or ski gear further back or higher up in a closet.
