Not everyone is blessed with a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired walk-in closet. For most of us, coming up with storage ideas that will help stay organised while also looking good is important. And the smaller the closest space, the more difficult it seems to stay organised. However, this does not need to be the case. With smart storage ideas, even a small wardrobe can be organised and purposeful. Use these ideas to help you design your own small closet plan.
Use various kinds of storage
The key to an organised small closet is to utilise a variety of storage types. Apart from the usual hanging rods, invest in open cubbies, plastic bins, baskets and cabinet storage units to store clothing and accessories. Plan to store smaller folded garments, accessories and other miscellaneous items inside closed storage to avoid a cluttered look. Regularly worn clothing and accessories can be in the open to make outfit planning easier.
If you use baskets or closed storage solutions to keep smaller items and accessories, be sure to label everything clearly so you know exactly where to find when you need something. It is also a great way to keep track of things that you own and avoid making unnecessary purchases.
Don’t forget to add a pop of colour
Just because your closet is small does not mean it can’t be stylish. Bright colours will go a long way in brightening up a drab space to make getting dressed- and putting your clothes away a more pleasant experience! Use Wood paint and wood primer to add a touch of elegance to even the most boring and dull furniture pieces.
Put clothes on display
If you don’t have a proper closet, install an organisational system along a free wall to maximise your storage space. Add a mix of colourful outfits on the display that will not only look good but also act as low-key decor pieces!
