You have unearthed the most outstanding apartment. Natural light is streaming in through the windows, the kitchen are roomy, and you can't wait to soak in the garden tub. As you start unpacking your items into the closet, it becomes evident you may have too many clothes. And shoes. Maybe your roommate won the bigger closet, your spouse actually has more clothes to choose from, or the space is more cramped than you remembered. Here are a few tips to make the most out of your closet space.

Hangers > folded piles!

Hangers are generally accepted as a necessary evil. Acquiring hangers is an errand and not treated as fun. However, the types of hangers you pick in your closet can create or remove space. Using velvet hangers will add so much space in your closet and they're not super expensive. Also, keep your hangers color-coordinated. It's pretty easy to become distracted by clashing hangers.

Organize with a Purpose! 

After you've switched hangers, organize your clothes by color and sleeve length. We have all been there - combing through shirts to find immaculate sleeveless blue button up. Grouping your closet from summer to winter is easy, but make it fun! Don’t forget you’re the one who has to see it every morning.

Having Folded-Clothes isn't the End of the World! 

Not every item must have a hanger. Your jeans, shirts and sweaters can all be folded into drawers or shelves. Folding items will keep the closet bulk down. The contrast between hanging and folded garments will ensure you see your closet more easily.

All Space is Used Space!

Utilize extra storage for the bottom half of the closet. Organize accessories or folded clothes in the cubbies and keep shoes underneath. If there is still capacity, the top [of|part of|area of]184] the organizer you should definitely use. There is no reason to leave empty space in a closet - only untapped possibilities.

Last Call...

If there is space in a bedroom, a rolling rack is the ideal addition to any wardrobe. Plan your outfits daily or weekly, use your go-to pieces as decor, or just use the said rolling rack as additional storage space.
