3 TIPS FOR AN ORGANISED CLOSET

Having trouble finding your favourite dress because everything’s a mess? Find the experience of getting dressed in the morning time-consuming and irritating? Always dreamed of having a wonderfully organised closet? Don’t fear, because we are here to give you some tips that’ll help you get your dream closet!

ORGANISE BASED ON COLOUR AND LENGTH

Every great closet has a certain organisation system. A brilliant way of organising your clothes would be to arrange them based on colour and length. First, put your clothes in different piles based on the colours of the pieces. Next, hang each colour category up based on the different lengths (eg. from shortest to longest). You can also hang your clothes up based on sleeve lengths or shades of the particular colours if you prefer. This makes the inconvenient task of finding a specific item in your closet much easier. Say goodbye to the time-consuming and burdensome task of rummaging through your clothes for that nice blouse!

HANGERS

Your choice of hangers is more important than you’d think. Buy hangers of the same colour rather than multi-coloured hangers for a neater and classier look. Flocked (aka velvet) hangers are highly recommended as the surface provides friction to ensure that clothing pieces (especially items with thin straps) won’t slip off the hanger easily. On top of that, flocked hangers are usually thinner than plastic or wooden hangers, providing more space in your closet as more hangers are able to be hung on the rods. These tricks are even used by fashionistas like the Kardashians!

DECIDE WHETHER TO FOLD OR HANG THE PIECES

Hang more formal pieces that you often wear or want to wear more often because if you can’t see it, you won’t wear it! Also, hang up items that are made of rayon and silk to prevent creasing. Do not hang your items in dry-cleaning bags because the plastic will trap harmful chemicals that can cause damage to your clothing. Anything heavy, like wool sweaters, should be folded so that they don’t get stretched out. When stacking folded items, it is best to put the bulkier items on the bottom of the pile so that the stack doesn’t fall over easily.
