Having an organized bedroom closet can seem like a distant dream to some homeowners in the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Port Charlotte areas. However, with custom closet systems from More Space Place, the concept of an organized bedroom closet is well within your reach. Feel free to pick and choose from the following 10 closet organization ideas to transform your bedroom closet into something truly special.
Start your organization process by going through your closet and getting rid of the things you never wear. Donate items in good condition to a local thrift store or charity.
2. Consider Placement
Organize the clothes you are keeping into four groups: most used, least used, seasonal/specialty items (evening wear, etc.) and accessories. Your most-worn clothing should be placed at eye level in an area that’s easy to access. Everything else should be arranged in a way that makes sense to your tastes, preferences, and wardrobe.
3. Décor Solutions
Treat your closet like a small room as you plan and design custom closet solutions. Consider the flooring, new paint color for the walls, lighting, and additional touches to really make it your own.
4. Add Shelving
Custom shelving in your closet can make the storage of hats, handbags, shoes, and other accessories easy and convenient. Adding storage boxes with lids to some shelves can be ideal for storing smaller accessories and specialty items. Utilize dividers in boxes to keep track of the smallest items.
5. Incorporate Drawers
If your closet space allows, include built-in drawer storage for jeans, sweaters, casual shirts, and other folded items. These drawer systems can often eliminate the need for a dresser.
6. Optimize Vertical Space
Run shelving, accessory racks, and other custom storage elements from the floor to the ceiling to maximize the space in your closet. Storing seasonal or seldom-used items higher up increases a closet’s efficiency. The space above the highest closet rod near the ceiling is ideal for storing seasonal items or even extra linens, pillows, and blankets.
7. Strategically Placed Hooks
Make the most of every square inch of your closet by placing hooks in those tucked away areas that can be used for hanging things.
8. Consider Color Coding
When it’s time to put your wardrobe back in your finished custom closet, consider grouping like items by color. You’ll have an easier time finding your favorite pieces of clothing, as well as be better able to use a designer’s approach in creating color palettes, looks, and outfits.
9. Make Use of Suitcase Space
If you store your luggage in your closet, make the most of it by using the space inside. Seasonal items, such as coats and sweaters, as well as spare blankets and linens are just a few ideas.
10. Bench Seating That Adds More Storage
If space allows, consider adding bench seating and a small vanity to create a boutique feel in your closet. Select a cedar chest or similar box to allow your bench seating to also function as additional storage.
