6 Closet Organization Ideas to Make Your Life EasierJuly 15th, 2021 by
Your closet shouldn’t be a source of stress. But if there’s absolutely no system of organization, standing in the doorway of your closet could be anything but calming.
To get the most out of your closet, it has to be manageable.
In this article, we’ll cover several easy things you can do to add a bit of order to even the messiest closet. And don’t worry! You won’t have to spend hours doing tedious organizational tasks.
Instead, we’ll be focused on quick, effective options.
Bringing Order to Chaos
If you’re concerned you can’t afford a complete closet makeover, we have some suggestions that can help. While a complete makeover is ideal, it’s not always possible.
With these six closet organization ideas, you can make your closet much more convenient and accessible while you save up for a full closet makeover.
1. Store Items in Baskets
Perhaps the simplest (yet effective) organization tool for closets is baskets.
Baskets are a fantastic way to store accessories and small articles of clothing—like belts, gloves, socks and more. Wicker baskets are a popular choice, as they’re stylish and low-cost.
If you have hard-to-reach shelves in your closet, baskets will help you to optimize that space. It’s much easier to grab an entire basket than it is to reach for a small individual item.
2. Keep Seasonal Clothes in Storage
Finding your favorite summer t-shirt can be tricky with all your winter sweaters in the way. That’s why we recommend keeping your off-season clothing in storage when you’re not using them.
Things like swimsuits and shorts can go into storage during the winter months. During the summer, pack away thick sweaters, coats and other cold-weather gear.
You may be surprised at how much extra space you have in your closet once you’ve removed these seasonal items.
Not sure where or how to store them? Your storage solution doesn’t have to be anything fancy. A large plastic storage container or two should be enough space. Then just keep the storage containers in your basement, attic or garage.

3. Change Your Closet’s Structure
Do your efforts to organize your closet keep falling flat? The structure of your closet may be the core issue. Perhaps there are not enough shelves. Or maybe the closet rod is too low to the ground.
It may be worth hiring a home services professional, like a handyman, to make some contractor-level changes to your closet’s structure.
They’ll know how to make your closet more convenient and accessible to you. Be sure to talk through exactly what you’re trying to accomplish and ask plenty of questions before the project gets underway.
4. Hang Up Bags/Purses
Bags and purses can take up a lot of room in a closet if not stored efficiently.
If you don’t have room for them on your closet rod, consider adding some hooks to your closet door. This will allow you to hang all your bags and purses in one easy-to-reach place.
5. Buy a Clothing Rack
Still find yourself with way too many clothes for your closet, even after organizing and decluttering? An extra clothing rack will save you from having to fill your closet past its limit.
You can use them to hold the clothes you plan on wearing that week, your jackets or anything else that suits your needs.
Standalone clothing racks can be bought online at very affordable prices. Plus, there are all kinds of ways to make a clothing rack look stylish so it doesn’t take from the overall aesthetic of your bedroom.

6. Keep Jewelry in Trays
Jewelry is typically quite small. This can make finding individual pieces difficult, especially if your jewelry isn’t well organized. Thankfully, there’s a straightforward way to keep your jewelry easily accessible.
Simply place your everyday jewelry in a cute tray on a nearby dresser. Store everything else in a jewelry box or in some kind of organizer in your closet.
By making just a few of these simple changes, you can completely transform your closet. You can implement most of these ideas on your own at little to no cost.
If you’re looking for a more significant change to the actual structure of your closet, however, you may want to consider hiring some outside help.
