Ah, this is where The Prin Press all began! Shelves, rods, space and opening the doors or pulling the sheets to a side, and the closet is a wonderful space to see a rainbow of lovely clothing items!
1. Every Item Hung
Er, or as much as possible. Ever tried to hang those unmentionables? Yeah, that’s a big mess. Basically every item that is hangable. It’s obvious how to hang those folded shirts, jackets, coats, skirts, shorts, and pants.
2. By Color
More the monochromatic type? Just sort strictly by color. Just keep ROYGBIV in mind and then do by type in each color. Easy peasy!
3. Separate Closet Sections for Everything
Have a folding section at the bottom, hang in the middle and fold again at the top. Then section off the sections. Either place a dresser or shelves-turned-into-dressers in the closet or turn square baskets on their sides. If you don’t wear it very often or it’s out of season, then put it up top or trash it or send it to a second-hand store. PJs, workout clothes, unmentionables, fold those on the bottom (or top, but together). Put shoes to the left and/ or the right if there’s room. Innovation really is key here. There’s really no reason to use things for why they’re traditionally constructed, which brings us to…
4. Everything Folded
For the person who is the complete opposite of the first, folding is fun! Well, sometimes I like it! Anyway, some items should never be folded - silk, leather, long coats. Fortunately, most dresses can be folded, but definitely not huge ones, like wedding dresses.
5. No Closet!
Some of the most organized people I know have no closet. Most of these people live in NYC. One person I used to live with hung clothes on the jagged brick in her room (I'd, quite frankly, NOT do this EVER, unless you want a brick wall to ruin your clothes), yet it worked in an organized fashion for her. This is actually a blessing. Get ready for the blessing - your best closet ever. You’ve been given the opportunity to build your own closet.
Stop looking at me like that.
I’m not going to link you to some uncool brand website with over-priced, straight-up ugly or made-for-you closets. You get to find unique items that actually fit your clothing, not the other way around. Metal racks that you can laquer or spray paint are great. Don’t only look at retail stores, look where they look at places that sell to retailers. Or look on Amazon or Chairish.
Or search Etsy, which is such a hidden gem that many people undervalue. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone, probably because they’re just like us! They’re entrepreneurs or solopreneurs, so they care much more about quality, production, customer satisfaction, ROI and the rest of the business bells and whistles. The cost-to-quality ratio is bar none.
6. BONUS: Hire Me! ;)
Still confused? No matter which 1.-5. you want for all your things? That’s what we do. I chat, visit, evaluate, and then organize your commercial or residential spaces. You and I won’t part ways until your space is perfectly organized to your expectations.
Love ya. Mean it. Au re.
