No matter whether you live for shopping all the latest trends, or love just wearing your favourite clothes over and over again, everyone should have a wardrobe that is neatly organised and where the space available has been maximised to its full potential. Here, we will discuss our top tips for how you can declutter your fitted wardrobe space, so you can get dressed in the morning with ease.
Ensure All Your Items of Clothing Are Visible
Wardrobes in fitted bedrooms give you the luxury of having more space than you do with your average set of wardrobes. If you have many items of clothing which you cannot see in your fitted wardrobes, then making items visible should be the first thing that you look at when trying to maximise your space. As they say, out of sight, out of mind. So, if you cannot see an item of clothing, you are likely to forget about it and not ever wear it. We would recommend shifting the clothes in your closet every few months to see what layout works best for you. This could be moving your tops to the front, trousers to the back and vice versa. This will undoubtedly help you make the most of your fitted wardrobes space.
Minimise Your Closet
While this may seem like an obvious answer, it is important to note that the best way in which you can maximise the space available in your built in wardrobes is to minimise the number of clothes that you have. If you take a look through your closet now, we are sure you will find many items of clothing that you no longer wear for being too big, too small, not fitting right, or no longer suiting your style; and that’s just to name a few. So, why not just get rid of them to free up more space in your closet? This will then allow you to get a better view, as we mentioned previously, of the clothes that you do like, encouraging you to wear them more often.
Use the Floor Space
Sometimes we forget that in our fitted wardrobes there is also plenty of floor space to take advantage of too. If you have lots of hanging clothes then you can group together the shorter items at one end of your fitted wardrobes and the longer pieces at the other end, leaving you with lots more floor space. Here, you can then place a stacking shoe rack or a dresser.
Use the Upper Shelf
Similarly to how people tend to forget about maximising the floor space in their fitted wardrobes, many people also do not maximise the space that they have in their upper shelf. You can normally stack storage bins up here or you can also place a shelf divider here too which can turn the space into smaller cubbies where clothes and accessories are easier to see and quickly access. They can be used to separate stacks of folded clothes or keep your bags upright and accessible.
Use the Doors
Another fantastic way to maximise the space in your fitted wardrobes is to use the doors as extra space. Attaching hooks can help you store lots of different items such as scarves, pyjamas, belts and handbags. The backs of your doors are also the perfect place to hang up jewellery on hooks or on a corkboard.
Hang Up Mirrors
If you do not have sliding wardrobe doors with mirrors, another great way to make your wardrobes at least feel a bit bigger is to hang up mirrors. This can create the illusion of a bigger closet and make it feel as though it extends a lot further than it really does.
Maintain Your Space
Last but not least, after you have followed our top tips to maximise your wardrobe space, you will need to ensure that you maintain it. A good way to do this is to have a one in one out rule if your wardrobe is already at full capacity.
