Square meter does not measure a good wardrobe: how well you use the available space is important. Even the largest walk-in closets can be small if the available space is not maximized. If opening your built-in closet triggers a landslide of clothes every morning or you have to search your entire wardrobe to find the dress that suits you, there is hope for you.
While everyone seems to have more than their closet can hold, even the smallest closet has more space than you can imagine. Here are some ways you can maximize your built-in closet and use that space more efficiently.
Add closet shelves
If your closet can hold additional shelves, adding more shelves is a good idea. Items like sweaters are best kept on open shelves. This prevents stretching when hanging. Jeans are also best stored on open shelves. Use shelf dividers to organize your wardrobe even better. Get some cute baskets to store your loose accessories. The top of your closet is often underutilized. Adding an extra shelf makes it easy to use and allows you to store items that you don't use often.
Make clever use of the corners in your closet
Corners, even in our homes, are usually dead spaces. They tend to be forgotten and never used. However, these spaces in your closet can be used in the most surprising ways. You can create space for additional compartments and shelves. Use a corner carousel that can be rotated 360 degrees to make the most of the space in the corners. You can use it to hang everything around your wardrobe.
It is best to use the hooks
Wallets never seem to have a specific place in your closet. They are just a messy and disorganized bunch on your cloakroom shelves. Use the wall of your wardrobe to hang these wallets. Get some cute decorative hooks, glue them to your wall units at different heights, then hang your bags and purses. You can also hang your jackets. Their hooks can also be used to store your jewelry.
Light it up
While a neat closet is a great thing, nothing good can come of it if it's not well lit. You will always make a mess of it because you can't seem to find where you put your black pair of boots the last time you wore it. Closets with a smaller or deeper hallway usually don't let enough light in from the bedroom. You need to properly light your wardrobe to see everything clearly. Make sure you have some nice lights in your closet to step up a notch. If some corners are not well lit even after installing these lights, you can add additional light sources
Use your vertical space
Many wardrobes have a shelf that sits just above the clothes rails. However, you can use the space to add another shelf high. Better still, you can install another shelf above the door in your walk-in closet. These tall shelves can be used to store items that are not used often. Store the items in clear plastic boxes so that they can be easily picked. Making the most of your walk-in closet is an ongoing process as you always need to keep it tidy. Just make sure you don't go overboard by adding too many features to your closets. It can cramp the closets and they need enough air to circulate, which will keep your clothes fresh.
