How to organize a closet? Professional closet decluttering and organization Sierra Wetherson

Organizing a small closet can be a challenge, but with some strategic planning and decluttering hacks, you can maximize the space and keep everything neat and accessible. Here are some tips to help you organize a small closet effectively:

1. Declutter First:

- Start by taking everything out of the closet. Sort through your items and be ruthless in decluttering. Donate or discard items you no longer need, use, or love.

2. Categorize and Sort:

- Group similar items together. For example, separate clothes by type (shirts, pants, dresses, etc.) and accessories. This will help you see what you have and make it easier to find things later.

3. Use Slim Hangers:

- Slim, non-slip hangers take up less space and can create a uniform look. Consider using them for clothes like shirts and blouses to maximize hanging space.

4. Double Hanging Rod:

- Install a second hanging rod below the first one to double your hanging space. This is particularly useful for shorter items like shirts, skirts, and folded pants.

5. Shelf Dividers:

- Use shelf dividers to keep stacks of clothes, bags, or accessories separated and prevent them from toppling over.

6. Fold and Stack:

- Fold clothes neatly and use shelf space efficiently. Consider using shelf dividers to create separate sections for different types of clothing.

7. Utilize Door Space:

- Over-the-door organizers or hooks can be useful for storing accessories, bags, or shoes. Make the most of the space behind the closet door.

8. Under-Bed Storage:

- Store out-of-season items or less frequently used items in under-bed storage containers. This frees up valuable closet space.

9. Drawer Organizers:

- Use drawer dividers or organizers to keep small items like socks, underwear, or accessories in order.

10. Clear Storage Bins:

- Transparent storage bins allow you to see the contents easily. Label or color-code them for quick identification of items.

11. Vertical Space:

- Don't forget to use the vertical space. Install hooks or pegs for bags, hats, scarves, or jewelry.

12. Rotate Seasonal Items:

- Rotate your wardrobe seasonally. Store out-of-season items in a different location, such as under the bed or in a separate closet, to free up space for current-season clothing.

13. Purge Regularly:

- Make it a habit to declutter and organize your closet regularly. If you haven't worn or used something in the past year, consider letting it go.

Remember, the key to organizing a small closet is to be mindful of the space you have and to make the most of it by decluttering and using clever storage solutions. Customize these tips based on your specific needs and preferences.
