Although you might not spend as much time in your walk-in closet each day as you do in other rooms, it's important for this space to be well organized. You tend to be in the closet when you have a schedule to keep—namely, you're getting ready to go out. It's important to be able to find the clothing that you want with ease, but this isn't always the case. For some people, their walk-in closet is a part of the home that can get disorganized and cluttered. Don't be afraid to turn to a professional organizer for help. You can have them help you in several areas of your home, or simply focus on the walk-in closet for now. Here are some ways that they'll be able to help.
Get Rid Of Some Clothing
If you have way too much clothing in your walk-in closet, there's a good chance that your professional organizer will encourage you to get rid of some of these pieces. Doing so might feel difficult, but it's an important first step toward a closet that is more organized. You can set aside several garments that you haven't worn in years and either donate them to a used clothing store or perhaps try to sell them at a consignment shop. If you have trouble parting with certain things that you don't wear, consider placing them in boxes and storing them in your basement or even in a storage unit.
Add More Storage Devices
Professional organizers are big proponents of spaces that have all sorts of storage devices, so you can expect that your organizer will advocate adding a few more storage solutions to your walk-in closet. For example, they might suggest installing a device that hangs on the back of the door and holds several pairs of shoes. This device will get your shoes off the closet floor, which will help to make it look tidier and also make it easier to move around in the space.
Change The Location Of Items
There's a good chance that your organizer will also advocate moving things around in your walk-in closet so that certain things are in better places. For example, it makes sense to have the things that you use regularly in an area that they're easy to reach. Other things that you seldom use, but still want in this space, can be in an area that isn't quite as accessible, such as on a high shelf. These changes can help your walk-in closet to have a highly organized feel that makes it a treat to visit each day.
