Closets are known to be entirely too small for the amount of clothing and accessories we are expected to keep in it. If you have been using your closet as a storage facility it is time to rent a storage unit from Holladay Self Storage. Continue the organization of your closet with the steps we have provided below.
Gut Out your Closet
The best way to start any organization project is by emptying out all of the items you have in your closet. Designate a space in your home to place all of your items. Once you have everything removed you can go through your belongings and decide what you will keep, donate, or place in storage. You can create a lot more storage space in your closet by switching out seasonal clothing and placing the out of season clothing in a storage unit at Holladay Self Storage. To help you with the sorting process you can use bins and/or a hanging rack to help you to get a better idea of exactly what you will be keeping.
If you are using your closet as an in home storage unit you will want to find them a new home. Every item should go in the room it coincides with. If you are still unable to find the space you need, your new storage unit will help you to free up some storage space throughout your home.
When we say clean, we mean it. Now is the perfect opportunity to give your closet a good scrub before placing all of your clothing back on its shelves. Wipe down all of the surfaces with a disinfectant wipe or wet wash cloth. You will be surprised at how much dust has accumulated throughout the use of your closet. If you have carpet on the floor of your closet you will want to give that a good vacuuming as well.
Now you can begin placing the items and clothing you decided to keep back in your closet. Place clothing back in a way that is grouped by categories or color for that added level of organization. You will begin to notice how much room you have. Stay organized by using bins to contain your smaller wardrobe accessories. Purchasing a shoe rack or organizer is also a must.
Now that you have the clean and organized closet you have always wanted you can use the same process in other areas of your home. If you find that you are lacking the storage space you need, you can trust Holladay Self Storage to provide you with the perfect storage unit. Call us today to learn about our current rates and deals.
