Wardrobe Space Saving Idea #1 – Keep It Tidy

This may seem easier than it sounds but we all tend to end up with unnecessary items in our closet. The key point to remember is your clothing is the priority!

Whilst wardrobes may be used to store other bits and pieces, it’s important to ensure you allow yourself enough room to be able to see and access your clothes. A cramped closet may leave you forgetting about certain pieces and this can end up costly if it’s never been worn.

If possible, try and store these items in boxes so they can be stacked or tucked away into a corner not suitable for clothing.

Wardrobe Space Saving Idea # 2 – Play It By Season

With warmer days slowly muscling their way in, it’s time to start packing away your winter clothes.

By taking out some of the bulkier clothing items, you instantly create more space in your closet. These can be stored down low or preferably up high to make other items more easy to access throughout the warmer months. (Plus, there’s nothing better than ‘rediscovering’ your favourite items when the season comes!)

TIP: Consider buying a vacuum-sealer machine to compress your bulky items by up to 3 times.

Wardrobe Space Saving Idea # 3 – It’s All About Structure

Storage areas come in all shapes and sizes so there’s no simple solution. But a great way to utilize every inch of your closet is to view and invest in modular storage parts.

Simply by viewing the different storage parts that are available, you’ll more than likely be able to imagine new ways to get the most out of your storage including those awkward areas.

Depending on your space, two great options include a longer hanging rail with drawers and shelves, or dual hanging rails with a tall set of drawers and shelves.

Wardrobe Space Saving Idea # 4 – Organize It

By organizing your wardrobe, you’ll be making your outfit decisions so much easier!

Depending on your preference, you could sort your clothes into categories or by colour. But either way this will allow you to simply look at your wardrobe to match different pieces and create new outfits! Also, if you have a freestanding or open wardrobe, it turns it into a work of art!

    I told my partner we could save lots of wardrobe space if we tossed most of his clothes. He disagreed!
