The Perfect Closet for Couples

The Perfect Closet for Couples

September 8, 2023

Whether you’re moving in with your sweetie for the first time or have been living together for years, you probably know that sharing a closet is anything but simple. After all, many bedroom closets are built for one person rather than two, and a lack of organization can lead to arguments and other disputes. If you want to split space successfully, you may need to make a few adjustments. At Closet World, we specialize in designing and installing an array of closet spaces suited to couples’ unique needs and concerns. Here are some of our top tips for creating the perfect closets for couples.

Cut the Clutter

If you’re looking to make the closet-sharing process more harmonious, we suggest that you start by downsizing your belongings. We’re talking about that suit that’s a decade out of style and those jeans that haven’t fit in years. Similarly, you can probably toss any clothing pieces that are stained, ripped, torn, or stretched. Both you and your partner should take time to sort through the clutter, ditching or donating items you no longer need. You can also sell brand-name items online to make a few extra bucks.

Relocate Seasonal Pieces

If your current closet system requires you and your partner to share, space may be at a premium. Save on storage by keeping off-season items in another part of the home. For example, a guest room or hall closet can be ideal for holding warm weather wear like shorts, skirts, and swimsuits during the winter months. Similarly, you can keep those bulky sweaters and jackets out of the main closet when the temperature warms up.

Choose Neutrals

The most effective couples' closets marry aesthetics and function. Whether you’re creating a new closet or giving the old one a facelift, we recommend opting for a neutral color palette. Ideal for unisex spaces, neutrals, and earth tones also tend to soothe the senses. So you will feel good when you step through the doors in the morning.

Create a Laundry Zone

Two people mean twice the laundry. If you want to avoid dirty clothes piling up on the floor – and taking up valuable space – we suggest creating a laundry zone in your walk-in. Built-in laundry baskets and hampers can help prevent a mess while making things easier come laundry day. As a bonus, you won’t have to dig through a heap of clothing on the floor to find items you need.
