Closet Organization Ideas & Inspiration
Now that you've cleaned out your closet, it's time to take your wardrobe space to the next level. Closet organization may seem tedious, but, trust me, it's worth it. Not too long ago, I read about half of Marie Kondo's book, and I attempted to give revamping my close a go. I sorted through garments I'd had for years, reevaluated the usefulness of the bins I was using, and tried a new way of sorting my items. Now, what once was a mess of a closet is my own personal clothing oasis.
It took a lot of time and patience, but thoroughly going through my closet led me to where I am today. It's now a lot easier to get dressed, be inspired, and put things back where they belong.
If you too are wrapping up your closet clean out, then I implore you to take this moment to discover all the creative possibilities a tidy wardrobe space offers. While I touched on this a tad in my last piece, below you'll find closet inspiration to help you really make the most out of your new organization project.
Learn to Coexist
If you're one of the lucky ladies who don't have to share closet space with a significant other, then take advantage of it. If not, don't worry. You can still make a co-inhibited closet space work with your aesthetic. First begin by seeing if there's any common ground to work with. Maybe your partner feels passionate about wooden hangers and track lighting, too. If so, then you've got yourself a winner. If not, then devise a plan to (literally) divide and conquer. Whether it's a set of shelves, contrasting hangers, or a vertical shoe rack, split up your closet space to give each person their own lil' area just for them.
Make Your Wardrobe Shoppable
You know that feeling you get when you walk into a really, really well merchandised store? When things are displayed in an appealing way it makes it easier to pick out what pieces you like the most. Keeping that in mind, I'm personally really big on using my closet as a space to display my favorite pieces. I put a lot of time, effort, and, don't forget, money into my wardrobe. So, as odd as it may be, I like being able to easily see the items I enjoy most, such as my leather jacket, go-to heels, and favorite scarf. Organization guru Shira Gill, whose closet is pictured above, gets it. Whether it's sorting by color, using old shelves for storage, or keeping your clothing rack minimal, showcase the best to be inspired.
Get Creative and Make it Yours
While you're at it, don't forget to add a bit of personality to your closet. After all, this is the space you visit before you get dressed each morning, so it should reflect you. Right now, my closet features a poster of Audrey Hepburn, stacks of fashion magazines, and a jewelry display. These are small touches. However, they make a big difference.It feels like me when I open my closet door. Follow the example of Shauana of Quentin & Co. (pictured above), who decorated her space with feminine touches. Add a faux fur rug, chic hat rack, or candles as a finishing touch.
