Lots of Clothes, Nothing to Wear !
Our experts share their top tips to help you make sense of your closet.
So much, yet so little.
How many times have you stood in front of your cramped closet and thought "I have nothing to wear"? We all do it, and then we buy more clothes, which only adds to the problem at hand. This vicious cycle is often a waste of time, money, and space.
Here are 4 ways to make the most out of your wardrobe:
- Eliminate Items: It has been said that we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. If you're neglecting over 3/4 of your wardrobe, consider getting rid of some things. Create 3 piles, one to keep, one to donate, and another to toss. You'll probably end up rediscovering things you forgot about.
- Group Things Together: It is immensely helpful to group similar items together when organizing your closet. Organize it by category such as pants or sweatshirts, then further organize it by color. You'll now be able to easily see at a glance what you need to buy and what you have too much of.
- Add Lighting: Make the contents of your closet or dressing room fully visible with under-mounted shelf lights and sensor activated drawer lights. Ample lighting will put your wardrobe in full view early in the mornings and in the evenings when dressing rooms are used most.
- Get Vertical: The single biggest problem in closet storage is the volume of space isn't being used right. A single closet rod wastes storage volume. You can double your hanging storage immediately by creating double hanging sections or triple hanging sections(if you have a small child).
When it comes to the nightmare which is the hanging space in your closet, an improved space requires two things - 1. better discipline and 2. a better design.
