Sort and Plan
The first step to revamping your wardrobe is to get an understanding of everything you need to store in there. That could mean throwing some things out, choosing to store them elsewhere, or realizing that your room will look better if you could put more things behind closed doors.
Once you’ve established what needs to be stored, you are ready to allocate space. Since this is a makeover for your closet, it should be built or rearranged in a way that makes it practical yet aesthetically pleasing. A practical design means a space where everything fits neatly, can be reached, and accessed easily.
One of the most effective ways to maximize your closet space and keep it looking good is with custom-built shelves. This is a job you can do yourself. You’ll need a day, the right tools and materials, but it won’t be too complex.
With your plan of where everything needs to be stored, you can work out the size of your shelves, how many you will need, and what height they should sit at. Remember to leave some extra vertical space as it will help you take things in and out, but will also improve the appearance of your wardrobe.
Maximize but Don’t Clutter
The space at the bottom of your hanging rails can be put to good use. However, this is one of the areas of your closet that is most likely to get jumbled and messy. The best way to use this space without it looking cluttered is with baskets or storage bins. Store smaller objects such as accessories or shoes in baskets at lower levels.
For open closets or walk-in wardrobes, we recommend filling up the spaces as necessary but then finding ways to make them look more appealing. One simple and effective way is to use curtains. They create some flat spaces that draw the eye away from clutter. They also help to hide shelves and rails that are less appealing to look at, and they are easier to close than doors when installed in confined spaces.
Closet Color Scheme
The finishing touches on the inside and outside of your closet can have a big impact on the overall impression. The doors to your closet can be part of the solution and can add something to the room as a whole. For smaller rooms, you could opt for sliding or bi-fold doors to save space, or mirrors to bring light to the whole room.
Picking a color scheme for the inside of your closet can improve the sense of space and bring about a calmer dressing experience. You’ll have clothes of every color, so it would be better to go for cool, pale and neutral colors. White hangers and pale blue storage boxes can give you uniformity with a touch of welcoming color.
The Bottom Line
Redesigning your closet can have a positive impact on many areas of your life. It helps you pick out the best outfit for the day, keeps the other rooms in your house less cluttered, and generally brings a sense of calm and organization to your home.
Having an overall vision for your new wardrobe is crucial. Once you know what you want, don’t be afraid to build something customized. You can make the most of every inch and keep your closet quite full, especially if you are using space savers like curtains and sliding doors.
