Whether you need help organizing your bedroom closet, a child's closet, or your mudroom, using a few tips, tricks. or products from the pros will help you maximize the space you have and improve your overall outlook.
Whichever closet you are reorganizing, here are some tips before you start from homedesignersoftware.com:
Your bedroom should be a refuge, not a storage bin. Start by trying to provide visual access to all parts of your closet. If your closet has a heavy sliding door, which covers half the contents, consider replacing these with bi-fold doors which open all the way. Adequate lighting can also help you find items and match colors accurately.
Hanging your scarf collection on a towel bar attached to your wall will save space and time. Shoe organizing can be done in a variety of ways. Hang rails on the inside of your door and hang shoes by their heels. If you are organizing your shoes on a shelf, arrange each pair by having one shoe toes out and the other shoe heel out. This will save storage space. Another shoe organizing tip if you are storing them in shoe boxes, is to take a photo of each pair of shoes and attach it to the box.
Hanging your rod higher in your closet can help you squeeze a dresser or shoe rack underneath hung up garments. Organizing tips include separating casual clothing from work and formal wear. Group garments by type such as jackets, dresses, blouses, jeans, pants, etc. From there, some super organizers can subdivide according to color or fiber content.
If you have room for a top shelf, shelf dividers help keep items separate and prevent piles from toppling over. Shelf brackets are used to hold up shelves but flip them over and use the rails to add more hanger space to your closet. Hanging shoe organizers can be used for bulky items like sweaters that you don't want stretched out by a using a hanger. Like a lazy Susan, a rotating stainless-steel clothing rack can maximize corner closet space.
Try to use matching hangers. Wooden or padded hangers insure your clothes will look their best when you need them. Look at office or desk organizing equipment like file folder/magazine holders to hold purses or wallets and memo holders to hold bracelets or wristlets.
Organizing a child's closet can present some challenges. Try to view the project from a child's view thinking small hands and small items and child-friendly access.
Start with purging the items of clothing that no longer fit or are worn and outdated. Lower open-storage shelves can provide access for kids while higher shelves will provide parents access to items of clothing frequently worn. Closet doubler rods will increase hanging space and allow your child to reach their own clothes. Hang similar items in groups or categories so kids can choose their own clothes and put them away quickly.
Use stackable shelving units and cubbies to store everything from shoes and blankets to games and books. Make it fun for the child to stay organized by installing things like a basketball hoop over the clothing hamper. Color coding shelves and boxes and using pictures can remind kids where things go. Using a variety of storage bins will help keep items like sports equipment and school book bags organized. The best first step is to label everything, this will insure everything stays organized.
Utilize the doors to hang organizers for small items like doll accessories. Bungee cords can hold loose items like toys, games and sports equipment.
Using these tips and tricks can help children share a room and stay organized.
Making small additions to a mudroom or entryway can make homeowners more organized and add value to their home. Children are more likely to hang their coats on a hook than open a closet door and use a hanger.
Wall hooks can help keep bags and jackets organized while a boot tray on the floor can keep mud and snow off the floor. A bench can offer seating and storage either underneath or inside. Transitional storage units offer built-in cubbies and open lockers for each family member with hooks and spaces above for bins to hold smaller items with shoe storage below.
Installing a tech station will encourage your family to charge their phones in the mudroom, thereby possibly increasing your face-to-face time. Chalkboards will alert your family to any important events, appointments or schedule changes of which they need to be aware. Posting a calendar with places for sticky notes will also keep family members aware of special dates and times.
Finally, the mudroom is often the first place seen by a visitor to your home. Having a well-organized entryway can make visitors feel welcome and comfortable.
