Closet Space

No matter how many closets your home has, it never seems to be enough! The following tips will help you make effective use of the closets you have.

  • Rethink

    Rethink what should and should not be stored in a closet.

  • Empty Hangers

    Move empty hangers to one end of the closet to free up space in the middle.

  • Child's closet

    If there's some room in a child's closet, use the free space to store some adult clothes.

  • Start Over

    Removing all the items out of a closet and reorganize. Dust and vacuum the closet to create a clean environment.

  • Plastic Bags

    Do not store clothing in plastic bags. Plastic keeps the clothes from breathing and can cause discoloration. Plastic bags are also a safety hazard in homes with small children. Try to use dark-colored garment bags that do not allow light to reach the clothes.

  • Use Drawers

    Organize jeans in drawers, along with accessories such as belts and scarves. This stuff doesn’t need to be hanging around in the closet taking up space.
