Best Ways To Organize A Man’s Closet
If you’re sick and tired of opening up your closet to find something that somewhat resembles a war zone, it’s no surprise that you’ve found yourself here. Thankfully, we’re on hand with some foolproof tips on how to organize a man’s closet that will have your wardrobe looking like Marie Kondo herself has worked her magic. If you’re ready to make that much-needed change that will declutter your wardrobe and making the morning routine a whole lot easier, read on.
1. Sort By Category And Then Color
A color-coordinated wardrobe is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it makes finding your clothes a whole lot easier. But, before you go and arrange all of your apparel by color, first you should sort it by category. From winter joggers to summer V-neck t-shirts, a well-organized closet will have everything in its place. If you’re not keen on organizing item by item, then organizing by occasion is just as effective. Think, workwear, casual clothes and evening wear.
2. Don’t Leave Empty Hangers
There’s nothing worse than cluttering your closet with empty hangers. As easy as it is to grab your clothes off the rack and just leave it there, taking the time to take it out or at least move it to the end of the rail will make your closet look more organized. Not to mention, it will make it feel less cramped.
3. Choose Uniform Hangers
This one may seem a little extra but making sure all of your hangers are the same color can actually make a significant difference. No, we’re not just being super picky, there’s actually a method to the madness. When all of your hangers are uniform, your eye will immediately focus on your clothes, both color and style. So, choosing the perfect outfit becomes a whole lot easier.
4. Take Care Of Your Accessories
We can often overlook our accessories, leaving a pile of dress socks and bucket hats with no real place in our closet. If you want to keep all of your accessories in check with a door or wall mounted accessory rack. There’s no easier way to store all of your favorite accessories from leather belts and ties to 5 panel hats and gloves, everything will be at easy reach, minus the clutter.
5. Hooks Are Your Friend
If you’re still short on storage space for your accessories even with a wall or door mount, you can also use hooks along the walls of your closet. Of course, you don’t want to go overboard and fill the closet with too much, but you should always try to utilize any wasted space.
6. Follow The One-Year Rule
It can be difficult to throw away clothes, especially those that we’ve had for years. We can become surprisingly attached, even to items we never wear. So, if you want to get rid of the clothes, you don’t wear once, and for all, you should follow the one-year rule. It’s pretty simple, if you haven’t worn that turtleneck sweater within the past year, then donate it or sell it. An easy way to keep track of this is to turn hangers a certain way when you’ve worn an item. At the end of the year, anything on the hangers that haven’t been turned has got to go.
There you have it, six tips that will help you to regain control over your closet. Granted, some of them will take a little time, but it will be worth it in the end. No more organized chaos, just a presentable closet with everything in its rightful place.
