If you are into more hanging, then you need to get the right hangers. Using the right hangers will keep everything tidy and organized. You have the liberty to choose the type of hangers you want but velvet hangers are very effective. The fact that they are not as light as plastic hangers enable them to hang properly without slipping easily on the rack. It’s a simple detail that can keep your clothes neat and wrinkles free.

Utilize every space

If you have limited space in your closet, then make good use of the spaces above and below the clothing rack. Use baskets to store items such as shoes, sweaters, lingerie, jewellery and any other foldable item. If you get difficulty distinguishing the boxes, then label them or get clear ones.

Get organizational tools

Organizational tools such as boxes, hooks, racks and dividers can make things easier for you when it comes to arranging your wardrobe. Clear containers especially for the shoes will help you to locate your shoes easily. You can use shelf dividers above your clothing rack to keep your small pieces of clothes such as scarves, small handbags and purses separately. Small attractive hooks attached to your closet door or wall are ideal to hang items such as jewellery or belts. While these tools will make it easy for you to access your clothing, they will also make your closet look neat and attractive.

Certain clothes are better hanged

Although you have the freedom to fold your clothes the way you like. It is worth noting that certain pieces of clothes are better when hanged. For instance, blouses, tops and lightweight dresses are best when hanged. Hanging will protect them from wrinkles and creases. Plus, it will be easy to access them so that you can wear them as much as you would love to. For a more organized closet, hang them according to their colour, style and length. However, avoid hanging heavy dresses because the weight can lead to stretched out shoulders. Such kind of dresses should be neatly folded and stored to maintain their shape.

Fold heavy sweaters

Just like heavy dresses, heavy sweaters can also stretch out if hanged due to their heavyweight. Keep your folded sweaters on the shelves above your closet for easy access. Also, use clear containers so that you can easily locate the sweater you are looking for. You can also keep your folded sweaters in your spare drawer. Just ensure each sweater is visible when you open the drawer. You don’t want to start looking for your sweater in all the containers simply because it’s hidden by other sweaters.

Save wardrobe space

To save your wardrobe space, avoid hanging certain type of clothes that can also be folded. Jeans is a good example. Although you can still hang your jeans, you can also fold them and stack them in a drawer to save space. Jeans are not prone to wrinkles and creases because they are made with sturdy materials. There is no point of squeezing your lightweight dresses, blouses and shirts just to hang your jeans. Of course, if space is not a problem, hanging is good because you can easily see all the pairs. But if the closet is small, be realistic and do the right things.

Maintain a neat wardrobe

So why not keep your wardrobe clean and organized? Even if you have to buy more hangers, dividers, wall hooks and shoe racks, please do. The effort to keep it in order is worth your time, energy and money. This is a section of your home you visit every day. Keeping it well-organized will save you the troubles of ruining your mornings, evenings and weekends. Put the tips above into practice and you will have an attractive closet in no time.
