Making A Home Your Family Will Love

When it comes to creating a gorgeous interior space, your home will only be as beautiful as your family allows it to be. If your children don't respect the space, your home will quickly fall back into disrepair, which is why I started focusing more and more on home and garden a few years ago. I was committed to creating a great space that was just as clean and gorgeous as it was functional, and I was really surprised to see how much of a difference my efforts made. Within a few short years, my place really seemed a lot more open, airy, and inviting. Check out this blog for great ideas on making a family-oriented home.

How To Organize Your Closet: Tips For You

by Alice Howard

If you are struggling with organization in your closet, you are not alone. Many people struggle to organize and control their closet space. However, this does not mean that it is impossible to get your closet in order. In fact, get to know a few tips to help you out in the closet organization process. Then, you can start your organizing project off on the right foot. 

Take Everything Out and Pile It on the Bed

In order to really get an idea of how much you have stuffed in that closet of yours, you need to get it all out in the open. So, pull everything out of your closet and make a pile (or multiple piles) on your bed. 

Take a long, hard look at how much you have. Do you own too much? Is the amount surprising to you? Just take the time to take it all in before you take any additional steps. 

Hold Each Item and Decide Whether to Keep or Discard

Next in the process of organizing your closet is to discard the items that you don't want or need. The best way to do this is to hold each item in your hands and examine them one by one. Decide if you like the item, if you use it regularly, and if it fits into the lifestyle you want to have. If yes, then keep it. If the answer is no to any of those questions, let it go. 

Have a goal to get rid of at least 25 percent of the items in your closet (although 50 percent would be even better). This will make your closet more manageable and easier to organize. 

Get a Custom Closet System

Once you know what you are keeping and what you are discarding, you can get down to the task of organizing. Consider getting a custom closet system for your closet. These systems are comprised of hanging space and ample organized shelves that can help you better keep your closet neat and tidy. 

Standard closets with one hanging rack and one large shelf above it are not ideal for proper organization. In fact, they encourage disorganization. But a custom closet system will allow you to get exactly the storage space you need and want for all of the items you need to store in your closet. Multiple hanging racks, smaller shelves, and the like will help you find a proper place for all of your items. 

With these tips in mind, you can start the closet organization process right away.
