Top 5 Closet Storage Solutions for a Clutter-Free space

The key to an organized and clutter-free closet is to have a designated spot for each item and to regularly declutter and maintain your storage solutions. Simple right?

I have found that when your stuff has a place and a space for your that makes sense for you, you will put it away.

By implementing these top 5 closet storage solutions, you can create a functional and organized closet that promotes a clutter-free home:

1. Custom Closet System

2. Shelf & drawer Dividers

3. Accessories and Hooks

4. Baskets or Bins

5. streamlined hangers

#1 Custom Closet Systems:

Investing in a custom closet system designed specifically for your space and storage needs can greatly enhance the organization and functionality of your closet. If the layout does not work then no amount of accessories are going to fix it. I call it - lipstick on a pig. Custom closet systems typically include features such as adjustable shelves & hanging rods, drawers, and accessories like valet rods, belt & tie racks, and jewelry organizers, allowing you to maximize the storage space and keep your belongings neatly organized.

#2 Shelf & Drawer Dividers:

Shelf dividers are a simple yet effective solution for keeping stacks of clothes or linens neatly separated and preventing them from toppling over. They can be easily installed on closet shelves to create designated compartments for different items, helping to maintain a clutter-free and organized closet.

Drawer dividers create sections within the drawer that make it easy to put things in their place and also clearly see what is in the drawer. I am a big fan of drawer dividers because you can create the spaces you need to put the items, say your socks or underwear - and you can drop them into that designated space and not have to worry about perfect folding them to make the drawer organized.

#3 Accessories & Hooks:

Accessories and hooks can be used to create additional hanging space in your closet for items like bags, belts, scarves, or hats. They can be installed on the side of custom closet systems, closet walls, or the back of the closet door, providing convenient storage options and helping to keep your closet tidy and clutter-free.

#4 Baskets or Bins:

Built in or removable, can be used to corral smaller items like scarves, swimsuits, shoes, or seasonal items in your closet. They can be built in like the right and middle picture or removable like the left. Removable gives the flexibility to place on closet shelves or on the floor, providing a designated spot for each item and helping to keep your closet organized and clutter-free. Being strategic on where you place the movable baskets will maximize space on closet shelves or floor.

#5 Streamline hangers:

Slim hangers take up less space compared to bulky hangers, allowing you to fit more clothes in a small closet. If you don't like a slim hanger- try to keep them uniform. It makes a difference visually.
