Small Home? These Space-Saving Tips Will Keep You Organized
If your closet space is at a premium, then you’re not alone. In fact, few of us are fortunate enough to have the palatial walk-in closets of our dreams. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer poor home organization in silence. With the right closet design tactics, you can get even the most cramped and disorganized storage areas into shape. Here are some of Closet World’s top tips for saving space in a small home:
Invest in Drawer Dividers
Are there too few drawers in your dresser? If so, dividers might be the solution to your organizational woes. Available in a wide range of sizes and materials, including bamboo, wood, and fabric, drawer dividers help organize even the messiest of spaces. You can create compartments for different types of clothes, such as socks, pajamas, and workout wear. Or you can subdivide spaces, separating dress socks from those used for athletics.
Swap Out Your Hangers
Take a look in your closet: are the hangers a mix of plastic, wood, metal, and fabric? Not only do mismatched hangers turn even the most organized closet into an unsightly mess, but they also take up extra space. If you want to save room and add appeal to this part of the home, think about picking up a uniform set of hangers. We recommend a slim acrylic or velvet hanger, which holds slippery fabrics with ease. As a bonus, velvet hangers are less bulky, so you can fit more articles of clothing on a single rod.
Move Out-of-Season Attire
Unless your closet is extremely spacious, you might struggle to fit your entire wardrobe inside at one time. Stay organized by relocating out-of-season pieces to another part of the home. Many homeowners stow bulky winter wear in plastic tubs under the bed or in the attic. However, if you want to save cash, consider keeping unused attire in extra suitcases instead. As a bonus, swapping out your wardrobe every few months means that old clothes seem new again when you take them out.
Utilize Shower Hooks
Not all your clothes and accessories are best stored on hangers or in the drawers of your bureau. Shower hooks are great for stowing accessories like jewelry, purses, scarves, belts, and ties. As a bonus, hanging up these items keeps them from getting lost or tangling in a dresser drawer. Mount these hooks on the back of your closet door or attach them to a wall or bureau.
