Spring Clean Your Closet With These Tips
Spring is a great time to get your home in shape, removing the winter weather clothes and accessories in favor of all your favorite summer attire. However, it can be hard to get started on your spring cleaning journey. After all, you have to be ready to make some major changes and even throw out items you no longer need. At Closet World, we’re passionate about helping homeowners create closet systems that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Here are some of our top tips for spring closet cleaning made simple.
Be Honest With Yourself
The first step to a successful spring clean is to sort through your current belongings. Take time to go through your wardrobe and identify items to keep, donate to charity, and throw in the garbage. The key is to ask yourself the tough questions. While many of us tell ourselves that those skinny jeans will fit again one day or that the dress we love will come back in style, the truth is they’re just taking up space right now. Additionally, spring cleaners should toss items with obvious damage such as holes, stains, or fading. In general, you should consider letting go of any clothing item you haven’t worn in the past year as there’s a good chance you won’t use it moving forward either.
Create Spaces for Accessories
You’ve worked hard to assemble a collection of jewelry and accessories that complement your attire and bring you joy. However, finding the correct way to display these beloved items can be just as challenging. If you want to organize your accessories for spring, we recommend first tossing any items that no longer serve your needs. This includes broken jewelry and those shoes that no longer support your arches. Then, designate baskets and bins for each item type. In particular, you’ll probably need containers for belts, bags, ties, scarves, socks, and shoes. And of course, you need a way of displaying your favorite jewelry that prevents damage or tangling.
Select Storage Containers
Speaking of storage containers, today’s home organizers have plenty of options at their disposal. Consider a lucite organizer for your jewelry or a back-of-the-door plastic hanger for narrow shoes like flip-flops and ballet flats. Baskets are great for showing off scarves, and fabric bins work well for delicates. The good news is our home organizers offer all the latest storage products and finishes to create an attractive, functional closet.
