29 May 2017

Have you ever opened your wardrobe and started to feel stressed just from the state of it? Have you ever been late for an important meeting or appointment because you had to search through the clutter for something to wear? A disorganised space can make you feel lethargic and even start to dread getting ready in the morning. With a few extra shelves and some fantastic accessories, however, you can clean up the space and keep it looking its best.

In this article, we have taken a closer look at some of the best storage wardrobe solutions we have to offer. Try a few of them out for yourself and we’re sure you’ll discover all of this space that you never even knew you had.

Organise According to Eye Level

The items that we see at eye level tend to be the ones that grab our attention the most. Think about it this way – when shopping at the supermarket, how often do you look at the items on the top or bottom shelves? Unless you’re looking for something specific, we’re pretty sure that you mostly look at the items that are right at eye level. This is where supermarkets tend to place the items that are on sale, encouraging consumers to purchase them.

This same rule can be applied to your wardrobe. Your favourite shirts, pants and dresses should never be too far from eye level. Whether you decide to hang or fold, ensure that these items are placed where you can easily see and find them.

Apply the Rule of Thirds

One of the best ways to organise your wardrobe is by dividing it into thirds – your favourite items should be in the middle third, whereas those items that are used less often should be in the top and bottom. Top section is often used for storing seasonal items (such as your skiing gear or your big floppy beach hat) and other items that are used less often (such as spare blankets or pillows). You may need a chair in order to reach these items.

The bottom section is commonly used for storing shoes. Although some people like to protect their shoes by storing them in boxes, this does slow down the process of getting dressed in the morning. A custom rack or shelf is better.

Repurpose Other Items for Storage

If you look hard enough, you’ll probably find a few useful items around your home that you’re not currently using that could be repurposed as wardrobe storage. Rather than getting rid of these items, why not use them to store some additional items in the space? Decorative baskets, for example, look nice but they take up a lot of space when they’re not being used. You can place these in the robe, using them to store clothing that doesn’t need to be ironed.

Another idea is to take leftover hooks from hanging photos or artwork around your home and install them on the back of the door or on the wall. They can be used to store belts and scarves, allowing you to select the perfect one.
