Having a walk-in wardrobe is a luxury that most of us dream of. But while it seems a dream having a space to just walk into and get ready in the morning, they are hard to organise, maintain and keep on top of. Before you get involved with the design and making your closet Instagram worthy, there are a few things you need to do. Here at We Buy Any House, we have compiled our top tips on how to organise your walk-in wardrobe.
Make Sure the Space is Clean:
Before you start adding your items to your walk-in wardrobe, it’s important that you make sure that the closet space is completely clear and then clean. Sometimes, when our walk-in wardrobes are overfilled with our belongings, it can be hard to get in all the small spaces to ensure the space is clean. So, before you begin refilling it so it can be organised, get in there with the vacuum cleaner, duster and anti-bacterial wipes. Ensure to wipe down any surfaces, use the hoover nozzle on the hard-to-reach places and leave the space pristine.
Do a Mini-Purge:
Before you add all your old belongings into your freshly cleaned wardrobe, it’s a good idea to do a mini purge so you can perhaps organise a smaller and more realistic closet of items you would actually wear. While you’re going through your belongings, ask yourself these three questions:
- Have I worn this piece of clothing in the last week?
- Does it still fit me?
- Is the item damaged or worn?
Once you have done this, you can whittle down what you actually have and make your closet space more functional.
Make the Most of Height:
More often than not, walk in closets is known for their height. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to dedicate at least one entire clothing rail to rods which can hang your clothes. A great suggestion by interior designers is to add double hanging rods- so you can store things such as jackets, shirts and pants.
Build Compartments Inside Your Drawers:
Compartments not only look aesthetically pleasing, but they are great for organising your walk-in closet and ensuring that everything is where it needs to be. This is especially useful for when it comes to organising underwear or socks. A great idea is to use the ‘file fold’ method in order to organise your drawers, which looks similar to a filing cabinet appearance.
Store Out of Season Clothes Elsewhere:
When you have your summer, winter, spring and autumn clothes all mixed up, sometimes it can leave our wardrobes looking a little messy. A great way to keep an organised wardrobe is to separate your seasonal clothes, and keep each season separate to the next. You can use vacuum sealed bags that are stored underneath your bed for ease purposes.
