Can you imagine not being able to walk into a walk-in closet? It can happen, if clutter goes out of control. It’s nice to be able to freely move around in any part of your house. This is only possible if we make sure there is a place for everything, and everything has to be in it’s designated place. It sounds easy, but if it’s not a way of life, it can really go out of control.
I make sure that every year I try to assess what we have and toss what we don’t need. That said, I must admit I’m guilty because I still keep a lot of my clothes that won’t fit anymore. No matter how much I convince myself I’d be fine without them, I can’t just close my eyes and give them away. Everything in our closet is sorted and grouped into categories. That way, even if it is full, it looks organized and neat. I store essentials at eye level and things that are not frequently used goes into storage bins. I find wicker baskets to be very useful in organizing knick-knacks and they are decorative too.
There are a lot of tricks in making a closet look neat and organized. Choosing one or two colors of hangers creates visual organization, because when you open a closet, your eye goes right to the hangers. Leaving some room in between the clothes and on the shelves also provide visual relief. It makes the closet look more attractive.
