How to Organize Your Closet

Nearly every decorator or designer recommends that the very first room you should complete is your bedroom. It’s your sanctuary…the place to go at the end of a long day. It’s where you regroup, relax, rest and it’s all yours…a private retreat.

 But as we’ve established, small bedrooms are difficult to organize especially if it’s shared by two people. There’s double everything…clothing, shoes, accessories and finding space in a small space can be frustrating. So turning it into a relaxing retreat is a challenge, for sure.

If you can maximize the space in your closet, you’ll be well on your way to that relaxing retreat.

Of course, a major hurdle is making room for all of those clothes, shoes, etc.

You’ll get more bang for your buck with a really good closet organizer.  I absolutely recommend getting this in order and here’s a suggestion that’s easy to purchase and install.

It’s by Closet Maid. It’s the Impressions line. The beauty of this is that it can totally be customized to fit your space. This particular configuration is designed for closets from 5 to 10 feet wide.

I used this system at our last home…it was perfect. And I have every intention of putting this system in the closets at my new place, too.  Just haven’t done that, yet.

If you have a big walk-in closet (unlikely in a small space but not unheard of) you could do this:

  • This system has drawers, shelves, and rods in many configurations.
  • There’s an installation guide and you can get it with or without drawers.
  • There are shoe racks and corner shelves…you name it.

The point is, you can make this work whatever your situation.  It’s affordable and has so many good reviews.

I would love to have your thoughts on these suggestions and any unique solutions that might be working for you, too.
