3 Tips on How to Fold Clothes to Maximize Space, Dothan, Alabama

Are you one of those people with an overflowing closet? If so, you’re probably in search of ways to maximize the space you have while also ensuring your clothing remains in great condition. The way you store and fold clothes can be a big factor in this instance, as illustrated by the following information.

Maximize Space in Your Home With These 3 Tips

1. Stack Drawer Items Vertically

Many of us are used to placing shirts and pants one on top of the other in our drawers. However, flipping these on their sides so the folded edges face up can allow you to fit more in the space. Additionally, it will make it easier to identify and grab the item you want without rummaging through other items and making a mess. 

2. Have a Plan for Different Items

Fold ClothesMany people fold all their clothes, regardless of the type of item or how often they wear those particular pieces. Remember that not every piece needs to be folded, and that having a specific plan for different items can maximize space. For instance, instead of folding a nice dress or dress shirt, designate an area of your closet to hang these pieces. You’ll be able to keep them wrinkle-free, and you’ll have much more space for other folded items, such as jeans, t-shirts, and sweaters. 

3. Use an Army Fold

Socks can take up quite a bit of room, which is why many organizational gurus recommend giving the army fold a try. With socks on top of each other, roll up from the bottom to the top. Next, take the outside edge of the outside sock and pull it around both. You’ll find that your sock drawer has a lot more space with this method, and you’ll also be able to find a matching pair much more easily.
