7 Closet Organization Ideas for Walk-ins

 

Invest in dividers.

Shelf dividers

Stacks of clothes on shelves look neat and tidy when they’re delineated with dividers. When you separate stacks, you can even organize your clothes by colors or seasons for ease of use.

Drawer dividers

Make more efficient use of your drawers with separators. Instead of socks or undershirts spreading over the bottom of the drawer, you can keep them neatly in their spot.

 

Add lighting.

Good lighting gives the illusion of more closet space and helps you see all the wonderful items in your walk-in. Additionally, chic overhead lighting can elevate the style of your space. You can add a flush-mount fixture to preserve your head room or go for drama with a small chandelier.

 

Add a second rod.

When hanging shorter clothing items, like shirts, skirts, pants, etc., you can create two rows of clothes racks or rods to double the amount of hanging space you have on one wall.

 

Store by frequency of use.

When hanging shorter clothing items, like shirts, skirts, pants, etc., you can create two rows of clothes racks or rods to double the amount of hanging space you have on one wall.

 

Use your vertical space.

Store rarely used items like suitcases on a high shelf. That way you free up easy storage for everyday items. You can also hang hats on hooks going up the wall to keep them from being piled haphazardly on a shelf.

 

Hang purses or try office organizers.

Purses of different sizes and styles — while they often perfectly complete an outfit — can create a disordered look on shelves. One way to tidy up the overall asthetic is to hang purses with s-hooks on the hanging rod. Additionally, a fun storage idea could be to use magazine files to hold clutches and smaller purses for a clean look.

 

Donate clothes.

One of the best ways to make your walk-in closet feel more spacious and luxurious is to pare down the amount of clothing  you move into it. An easy metric to decide what to clear out is the 1-year test. If you haven’t worn a piece of clothing within the past year, consider donating it to a worthy cause.
