5 Closet Organization Tips to Consider for Spring Cleaning, Temple, Texas

As spring comes into full bloom, home improvement is probably on your mind. From updating the garden to the spring cleaning of the house, there’s so much to do. One of the first things you probably check off the list is transitioning your closets. Whether it’s taking your warm weather wardrobe out of storage or putting the winter bedding away, take some time to organize your storage.

5 Tips for Organizing Your Closet

1. De-Clutter

This is possibly the hardest step in any home improvement project. Getting rid of things you don’t use or need is important to determine how much storage space you need. There are countless methods you can follow, but a good rule of thumb is if you haven’t used the item in six months, it’s time to let go.

2. Determine a Storage Strategy

Measure your space, and determine what kind of storage is best. For a linen closet, how many shelves do you need? If you’re organizing your wardrobe, are you going to use bins and baskets? How many hanging racks and shelves do you need? Measure where you want each storage system, and then, use the right building supplies from your home improvement store to create the look you want.

3. Use Ready-to-Assemble Cabinets

Free up space in your linen closet by adding additional RTA cabinets in your bathroom. You can move towels, soaps, and other toiletries into the bathroom for easy access for you or your guests.

4. Maximize Small Space

Small spaces require some creativity to maximize storage. Use every available inch from floor to ceiling. Shoes and belts can be hung with over-the-door hangers. Use bins and baskets to create cubbies or for easy access to items, like socks or underclothes. If your bedroom is small, consider moving your dresser into your closet if it fits. An instant way to create a clean, organized look in a stuffed space is to use uniform hangers.

5. Add Lighting

Stop stumbling around in the dark trying to find socks that match. Adding additional lighting in your closet can help you see what’s inside and keep your closet organized. They don’t have to be traditional overhead lights either. Get creative with a chandelier or a standing lamp.

You don’t need to hire a professional to tackle your list. With these tips from Surplus Warehouse, you can take care of the closet makeover yourself. For more information about Surplus Warehouse, or to speak with a supplier, click here to contact the location nearest you or call (334) 673-5625.
