Real closets. Real Clothes. Not some monochromatic stylized version you usually see in a magazine. Whose closets look like that?!
I worked with a client today on her closets and want to share some tips. It’s nice to have the same type of hangers for each category of clothing. It’s a small investment that makes a big difference.
In the hanging closet to the left we first hung skirts on pant/skirt hangers, then dresses (sleeveless to short sleeve to long) on non-slip velvet hangers, then dressier pants, and finally, collared shirts on the right.
On the hooks on the back of the door we hung jeans, work-shirts, anything that is worn frequently, making it easy to grab and put on, or easily hang up at the end of the day. This helps to keep clothes from ending up on the floor. Hooks are an excellent option.
In the plastic bins on the shelf above we put tights and socks. Easy. Convenient.
On the shelves in the other closet we folded and stacked categories of clothing: jeans and casual pants, long sleeve T-shirts, short sleeve T-shirts, tank tops, cardigan sweaters, fleece pullovers. The top shelf was saved for less frequently worn items.
It’s simple: like with like, consistency with hangers, hooks wherever you can put them. I hope this will inspire you to organize your own closets!
