Reorganising your closet can help elevate your mood and productivity. It’s a great exercise and fun activity whether you’re moving to a new home or simply need some change in your life. It’s a great way to reorganise all your belongings and make ample use of your new space.
Check out these six simple steps to help reorganise your closet in no time.
- Start by decluttering:
Before we organise it all, we should assess what we actually need or use at the moment. We all have a closet full of clothes and sadly most of the time we don’t even use half of them. Throw your clothes into three piles: a pile to keep, a pile to throw away and a pile you’d like to donate. You can find various donation boxes for clothes all around Qatar, usually in local neighbourhoods.
- Separate your clothes by season:
Winter is pretty scarce in the region, t but when it hits, it hits us hard. And though we all want to look fashionable with our faux fur coats, be it here or abroad, it’s best if we save our winter clothes in separate storage space within the house to make room, if possible.
- Organise by type:
When we say type, we don’t just mean shirts, pants and pyjamas. We mean by occasion; keeping your formals away from your casuals and vice versa. This will ensure that you can easily find what to wear when you are in a rush and running late. Imagine having a last-minute interview, and finding all of your formal and smart casuals in one place. You’ll be ready in no time!
- Colour coordinate:
This might seem a bit OCD, but your closet doesn’t have to be organised by each exact shade. The same “colour family” will suffice. This is also another tactic that will help you mix and match outfits to make the most out of your wardrobe. Let’s not forget, it can also help you locate things faster, be it shoes, ties, body lotion or accessories.
- Invest in a good shoe rack:
Shoes can be a hassle, as they take up a lot of space especially if you have a lot of footwear. Having your shoes up on a shelf, floor or in boxes can take up a lot of space when you need it the most. Shoe racks help eliminate this by having dedicated spaces designed for each shoe type. These methods help reduce the clutter and give your room a minimalistic look.
- Open rack vs. closed cupboard:
We know closed closets are the norm, and are usually what you would find in most furniture stores, but the best thing you can do for your bedroom is to purchase a custom-made open rack and shelf design for all your clothes. This method forces you to become more organised because you aren’t able to throw things in a cupboard and close the door shut where no one will see your mess. With everything out in the open, you can see and assess things better and are more likely to organise things in the long run.
