You have unearthed the most outstanding apartment. Natural light is bellowing in through the windows, the kitchen are spacious, and you can't wait to take a bubble bath in the garden tub. As you start unloading your clothes into the closet, it becomes apparent you may have too many clothes. And shoes. Maybe your friend won the better closet, your spouse actually has more to hang up, or the space is more cramped than you thought. Here are a few tricks to make the most out of your closet.

Hangers Trump Folded Piles!

Hangers are typically accepted as a necessary evil. Purchasing hangers is something on your to-do list and not treated as exciting. However, the types of hangers you pick in your closet can increase or minimize space. Using velvet hangers will free up so much availability in your closet and they are not super expensive. Also, keep your hangers the same color. It's all too easy to become distracted by unorganized hangers.

Have a Purpose to Organizing! 

After you've made the switch to your hanger of choice, organize your clothes by color and sleeve length. You know the drill - combing through tops to find your go-to sleeveless blue button up. Organizing your closet from light to dark is easy, but make it fun! Don’t forget you’re the one who has to look at it every day.

Don't Think you can't Fold SOME Clothes! 

Not every item must be on a hanger. Your sweaters, shirts, and jeans can all be folded into drawers or put away neatly on your closet shelves. Folding items will keep the closet immensity workable. The divergence between hanging and folded clothes will ensure you see your clothes more easily.

If there is Space, Use it!

Utilize extra storage for the bottom half of the closet. Organize accessories or folded clothing in the cubbies and organize shoes underneath. If there is still room, the top [of|part of|area of]184] the organizer take advantage of. There is no unusable space in a closet - only untried possibilities.

Last Call...

If there is space in a bedroom, a rolling rack is the best +1 to any wardrobe. Be proactive and plan your outfits ahead of time, use your most coveted pieces as decoration, or you can still use the rack as additional storage space.
