Great Tips to Make Your Bedroom Closet Truly Functional
Do you ever walk into your bedroom closet, look around, sigh, and dejectedly walk back out again shaking your head? We know that feeling all too well, which is why we’ve pulled together some of our top organizational tips to help you take a smaller space and turn it into an organized oasis that will shave minutes off your morning routines. Get ready for some great ideas that will tailor your custom home to your lifestyle!
1. Bring it Forward
When you’re organizing, you want to determine which items you use the most and make them accessible so that you can grab them at a moment’s notice. Closets are no different. There are always things that you’re storing “just in case,” and these are the objects that you want to place up high or hide in a back corner. If you’re reaching around your three pairs of skinny jeans every time you need that cute skirt that you wear on a weekly basis, it probably makes sense to do a little shifting.
2. Invest in Decent Hangers
If your clothes are falling off of their hangers, getting wrinkled and ending up with odd little lumps and bumps simply because the hanger that you’re putting them on isn’t sufficient for the job, you need to upgrade. Investing in good hangers will save you both time and money in the long-run, so don’t hesitate in making this tiny investment. Not all of your garments need wooden hangers, but even getting plastic hangers that are wide enough to keep your clothes secure will pay off in spades.
3. Shelf Dividers Are Your Friend
In the bedroom closet organization game, there aren’t any players that are better than shelf dividers. Stock closet shelving comes in a variety of sizes and styles, all of which seem to be exactly imperfect for whatever your needs are. Keep it simple with plastic or wooden shelving dividers that you can move by yourself, making your custom home design truly custom.
4. Light It Up
Dark, dimly lit closets are the perfect hidey-holes for spiders, bugs, creepy crawly things . . . and that favorite pair of pumps that you haven’t seen since last fall. Don’t let a dark closet defeat you! Add some extra lighting and the space will feel larger almost immediately.
Upcycling is all the rage, and for good reason! When you look at the fact that you can double the hanger space in your bedroom closet with the tab from a soda can, use holiday ornament boxes to organize your shoes or even use ice cube freezer trays to keep your jewelry safe and neat, why buy expensive gadgets? Keep it simple and you’ll reap the rewards.
Even something as simple as a bedroom closet can make the difference between a functional house and one that is truly customized to your lifestyle.
