How to Organize Your Walk-in Closet

Although wonderful to have, walk-in closets can be a source of frustration when they become cluttered. If you’re stuck at home with extra time on your hands, consider attacking that walk-in closet head-on. To help, we’ve put together some simple tips you can use to get the most out of your walk-in space.

Four Steps to a Better Walk-In Closet

Here are a few hacks to get you started on the big re-do.

  1. Take everything out: This may sound like a pain but starting at ground zero allows you to plan your closet from scratch. It also allows you to vacuum and deep-clean spaces that have been neglected. Trust us, you’ll notice the difference when this is all over.
  2. Decide what to keep and what to purge: Now’s the time to get rid of those items that don’t fit, are damaged or never worn. Free up that usable space!
  3. Plan ahead: Study your closet. Do you need more shelving? Can you use the corners? Where are shoes going? Plan out how to best use the space you’ve got. Pro-tip: adding double-hang rods can revolutionize your garment hanging space.
  4. Personalize: Make your walk-in closet one you’ll enjoy visiting. Add a dressing mirror, artwork or a seat to make the space feel homier. Brighten the color scheme for a more upbeat ambiance.

Bonus Tip: Upgrade Your Walk-In Closet With Wooden Hangers

Give your walk-in closet a deserved touch of class and order with quality wooden hangers. Not only will they turn your closet into an upscale boutique, but they’ll also protect and preserve your garments from wear, stretching or tangling.

For example, you can start with a row of wooden top hangers, perfect for most shirts and blouses. Unlike with wire hangers, your shirt won’t slip or stretch. For those strappy gowns and tank tops, notched top hangers are another great solution.

If you have blazers or suits, wooden suit hangers will preserve the shape and integrity of your expensive garments for years to come without any bending or bowing. For those pants, slacks and jeans, prevent creasing with bottom hangers.
