Want to create a functional, gorgeous space that’s uncluttered and has designated spots for everything in your wardrobe? It sounds like a dream. Regardless of your closet’s size, clutter happens. Here are 5 closet organization ideas to try ASAP—even if you have a small closet space to work with!
Closet Organization Idea #1: Sort By Color
Are you someone who likes to mix up their wardrobe? Don’t like to wear the same boring colors day in and day out? Organize your closet by the ROYGBIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet) color scale and never outfit repeat again. Start with lights and get darker, adding whites and darks to each end.
Closet Organization Idea #2: Add A Shoe Organizer
Shoe organizers that hang over the closet door can be a lifesaver. For lightweight, casual shoes, fit them into one slot, which is a hack that will give you double the storage space. Not a shoe person? No problem. Shoe organizers can be a great over-the-door storage hack for any small trinkets or accessories you own.
Closet Organization Idea #3: Invest In A Hamper
The easiest way to a messy closet is an overload of dirty laundry. Stop throwing worn gym clothes and work attire on the closet floor. Instead, invest in a heavy-duty laundry hamper—like this dual version from Amazon—that can hide your mess. You’ll have the appearance of organization without all the extra work—and you’ll always know what’s next to go in the wash!
Closet Organization Idea #4: Label Everything
From boxes to bins, creating labels for everything will help to create organization in your closet and eliminate clutter. Labels mean structure; and more structure? Well, that means less frustration of where to put that lonely sock yet again.
Closet Organization Idea #5: Don’t Neglect Wall Space
When your preinstalled closet fixtures aren’t doing the trick—add in your own to create more space on bare walls. Hang jewelry from hooks. Install purse hangers. Whatever you need, use the wall space you were given.
