Best Storage Tips for Using Your Closet Space Effectively

Storing clothes in small spaces can be difficult to do well, often leading to a cluttered closet. However, there are a number of ways you can both open up your storage space and make it easier to navigate. Here are 10 tips for organizing your closet space effectively!

1. Add Shelves & Don’t Forget Floor Space

Rather than let your odds and ends spread out across the room, try moving your storage up. You’ll be able to keep your closet more organized and conserve floor space.

2. Jewelry Boxes

Jewelry often carries some sort of sentimental value, but with most pieces being small, they’re also easily lost. Use jewelry boxes to keep all your valuables in one convenient place.

3. Subtle Storage Containers

Start filling in those nooks and crannies with some low-profile storage containers. Spaces such as closet corners or underneath the bed can be used to free up a bit of space.

4. Free Up Some Space

Chances are, you aren’t regularly wearing every item in your wardrobe. After all, they go in and out of season. If you don’t need certain types of clothing, store them in the attic until you do, freeing up your closet space.

5. Organize Storage Cabinets

It’s easy for cabinets to become cluttered, but this often leads to a lot of wasted space. Be sure your cabinets are neatly sorted so that you can best utilize the space.

6. Group Similar Items

We’ve all put something in storage and then forgotten where we kept it. It’s frustrating, but fortunately, it’s easy to prevent. Just keep all items of a similar type together in one labeled container, and you’ll be able to locate them easily when you need them.

7. Keep Favorites at the Front

If you find yourself wearing certain clothing items more than others, keep them in an easy-to-reach spot! This is more convenient and keeps you from having to undo your organization to find an item.
