Walk in closets may very well be man’s greatest invention.
Who wants to open a pair of louvered, bi-fold doors and see a bunch of wrinkled clothes, a sagging upper shelf and mounds of disorganized shoes all crammed into a too small space? Men assume that every girl dreams of her perfect wedding day.
Not true. Every woman, from the shoe collector to the organizational freak, dreams of the ultimate walk in closet.
Here are the top 10 ideas for making walk in closet organization perfect.
10. Laundry Hamper
For a simple solution to walk in closet organization, try a built-in laundry hamper. It’s a quick and easy way to get dirty laundry up off the floor and out of site, resulting in a clutter-free closet.
9. Divided Drawers
Socks, underwear and belts often get jumbled up in a large drawer. A truly organized closet includes built-in drawers with dividers or divider inserts to allow each pair of socks to have each own individualized cubby for the ultimate in neatness.
8. Valet Bar
For those who like to prepare for the coming day in advance by picking out their clothes the night before, a valet bar is a dream come true. It’s simply a pull out or pop up bar that you can hang your next outfit on.
7. Ironing Board
Who wants to drag out a rickety old ironing board every time a shirt is a little bit wrinkled? For exceptional walk in closet organization, a built-in ironing board can be incorporated into the design. The board and the iron simply fold out of the way when not in use.
Generally, jewelry boxes can get cluttered and over-filled. In fact, the box itself may create the illusion of an untidy closet shelf, dresser or makeup table surface. Many closet manufacturers now offer the option of adding a compartmentalized jewelry drawer (or drawers) to aid with dresser or walk in closet organization.
Organizational folks like labels. From labeled file folders to labeling guns, they like to put names on everything. Now, they can label the drawers and cabinets in their walk in closet as well to keep everything neat and tidy.
Nothing says disarray like a bunch of charging cords laying around on a kitchen counter or a nightstand. No walk in closet organization would be complete without a charging station to discretely hide all the cord clutter and keep all one’s electronics in a safe place.
3. No Kids
Nothing can mess up a well-organized space faster than little fingers. Many custom closet companies offer a magnetic locking system that allows you to lock certain drawers within reach, circumventing curious toddlers.
2. Special Hangers
Always looking to improve in closet organization, lovers of order and neatness can now purchase special hangers made to hold and separate scarves, belts and ties. In fact, the tie version actually rotates thru your options at the touch of a button.
1. Shoe Racks
Yes, shoe racks offer great walk in closet organization, but more importantly they help consolidate space, which means only one thing: more shoes. Shopping anyone? There’s a sale somewhere with your name on it.
