Closet Organization Systems For Every Type of Closet You Have

Are you plagued with closet congestion? In other words, when you open a closet … any closet … are you faced with messy and disorganized contents? Clothes closets are not the only offenders. Hall closets, utility closets, linen closets, and craft or sewing closets can also get out of control because of everything that gets stuffed inside. Tailored Living® has closet organization and storage solutions for every type of closet you have so you can get on with living life beautifully organized.

Closet maintenance doesn’t have to be an ongoing battle

Organizing all your closets may seem like a monumental task, but just three simple questions will get you to cleaner closets quickly and painlessly. Then, you merely have to work the system you choose to keep your closets organized and all the contents under control. So, pick your most troublesome closet and get started!

Question One: Does this belong HERE? – Items can travel room to room and end up in the wrong closet. Remove everything from the closet that doesn’t belong, and you’ll free up closet space for what needs to be in this particular closet.

Question Two: Do I ever use or need this? – Make an honest judgement of everything in the closet and get rid of what you no longer use or need. This applies to clothes, shoes, appliances, sports equipment, games, comforters, table linens, and things you keep just because you paid good money for them (but never use).

Question Three: Is it broken, ill-fitting, or worn out? – Most often clothes come to mind with this assessment, but other items can qualify for removal to cut down on closet clutter:

  • Bedroom closets: Belts, shoes, purses, and backpacks with broken straps, heels, or buckles.
  • Linen closets: Fabrics stained and worn beyond practical use, like sheets, pillowcases, towels, napkins, and tablecloths.
  • Utility closets: Cleaners and home care products can be ineffective, have unpleasant scents, or the spray bottles refuse to spray, yet they move to the back of the closet and stay there.

Now you’re ready to maximize every closet’s storage and organization possibilities, customized to the actual contents of each closet.

Linen closet efficiency saves time and energy

Linen closets are notorious for messy shelves. That’s because much of the contents are stacks of folded items that unfold as people root around looking for the right towel or pillowcase. Add in small washcloths, bath products, bulky pillows and comforters, and things can get out of control rather quickly. Linen closets benefit greatly from floor-to-ceiling storage and organizational helps to divide and conquer the many stored items.

  • Use labeled baskets and bins for smaller items like wash cloths, napkins, or products.
  • Bulky pieces can store on the floor in bins or in vacuum-sealed bags to minimize space required.
  • Don’t have more towels and sheets than your family can use, they’ll overload your linen closet and get musty from non-use.

Entryway hall closets and utility closets

Hall closets and utility closets are expected to house many and varied things which can lead to constant chaos. To organize each space for maximum usefulness, use custom storage solutions that manage the specific contents, such as hanging space in the hall closet and room for tall brooms and vacuums in the utility closet. Have dedicated space for everything that will be in the closet, enhanced with organization helps like shelves, hooks, and baskets so everything is easy to find.

Creative crafting without the clutter

If you’re a crafter, you know how much easier it is to get right to your project when all your supplies are in one place. Transforming a closet into functional crafts storage can be accomplished with shelves, drawers, cabinets, and containers. Set up zones for stacked fabric or paper, files for stencils and patterns, hanging space for tools, and individual containers for small items. Drawers with dividers, labeled baskets, and see-through containers like mason jars or bins keep shelves neat and all your supplies visible and organized.
