DIY Closet Organization

Have you been longing for a closet redo but its not in the budget? Here are some accessories to buy for your own DIY closet organization.

Divide and Conquer

Drawers can become a black hole of stuff.  Digging through those drawers trying to find your favorite shirt is a frustrating endeavor to be sure. Organize those drawers with dividers or DIY your own. iHeart Organizing suggests up-cycling shoe boxes.

Shoe boxes can also be an amazingly helpful tool.  I reuse them to keep a dresser full of clothes organized.

You can organize t-shirts, socks, or lingerie with your own DIY drawer dividers. Conquer that mess once and for all.

Hang It Up

A great way to add storage to any closet is to utilize the wall space. You, of course, use the closet rods to hang things in a closet. Adding a double rod is perfect for storing extra clothes, but what about all of those accessories? That’s where the wall comes in!

Do you have lots of tights or leggings that need a new home? Lana Red Studio suggests attaching clothespins to the wall.

I was cleaning out my closet and was very irritated by the fact that my tights didn’t fit anywhere in the closet. I keep my socks, underwear and stockings in separate boxes in my closet, but my tights just kept piling out of the box.
But suddenly I remembered all those tutorials on how to organize your jewelry and thought, why not use a similar method for my tights?!
I still had these wooden clothes pegs and found that they were just perfect for this project! I just simply glued the pegs to the side of my closet and used them to hang my tights on.

We love this organization idea! Not to mention the fact that all those tights and leggings bring a colorful design element to your closet.

But what about your other accessories like scarfs, jewelry, belts, and purses? Who’d have thought that bathroom fixtures could be the answer? Overthrow Martha used just that!

If you’re like me then you hate it when your necklaces get tangled and you can’t find the accessories that you want! I really needed to do something about it, but it’s hard when you’re on a budget! I would have LOVED to do a closet makeover, but unless you’re willing to give me some money or I win the lotto, then that isn’t going to happen!

I really wanted to have my favorite items visible so I came up with the idea of using bathroom hardware to hang up my necklaces and bracelets.

Theres no reason you can’t use bathroom hardware for scarves and purses too! Add some S hooks and you’re in business. Turn those bathroom fixtures into fabulous closet organization!

Build Your Own

If you have your own tool set and are handy with a hammer then you may want to build your own closet organization system. There are lots of tutorials out there like this one from Ana White using just one sheet of plywood. She has step by step directions as well as a video tutorial. Or you might prefer this tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens. You can save money by becoming your very own master builder! DIY closet organization to the extreme!

Craft Closet Organization Ideas

March is National Craft Month. The Craft & Hobby Association developed this month long holiday back in 1994 as a way to help people rediscover the wonderful world of crafting. You can’t craft if you can’t find your stuff. We’re here with our favorite ideas for organizing a craft closet.

Sort Your Stash

Your going to be shocked to hear this, but the first step is to sort and purge your supplies. Wait, what? That doesn’t surprise you? Maybe that’s because you’ve been reading our closet organization posts. We knew there was a reason we liked you so much!

Ok, back to your craft supplies. Gather up all your craft supplies in one place. That means you may need to walk around the house and pull supplies from all those nooks and crannies. You know you’ve got markers and crayons in random spots all over the place. When you have corralled your supplies in one space its a good idea to sort your items into categories. Then you can begin to determine how you want to organize.

This is also a great time to purge supplies that are dried out, almost gone, or simply items you don’t like any more. You can trash things that are too old to use, and donate things you don’t like to a local school.

Bins, and Baskets, and Drawers…Oh My!

Now that you have a sense of the different categories you need to store, and the amount of supplies you have, it’s time to start thinking of storage solutions. Bins, baskets and drawers are a great way to house your favorite art supplies. Some storage items work better than others. Open bins and baskets are perfect for over sized supplies such as yarn, fabric pieces, and other sewing pieces. These baskets and bins can sit on a shelf and allow you to easily grab what you need.  Closed bins are just right for supplies that can spill. Think about things like colored pencils, markers, paints, scissors, etc. Once you have your items stored you may want to label each bin. This step makes it easy to find your favorite supplies at a glance. Drawers are another wonderful option for storing your supplies. Particularly when the supplies are the kind that don’t need to be mobile. If its an item you only use one or two of at a time then consider using a drawer system.

Up the Wall

If you have wall space in your closet a system like the Omni Track Wall is the perfect way to store unusually shaped supplies. This is an awesome solution for storing wrapping paper or ribbon. You can also store your crafting tools with a system like this. Turn your craft supplies into a lovely focus wall in your closet. Pretty and organized supplies seems like the perfect way to celebrate Craft Month!

Closet Clean Out and the KonMari Method

Have you heard of the KonMari Method for closet organization? Marie Kondo developed an approach to decluttering using Japanese values. Many find this method to be far more than a way to tidy up. They claim it is life changing.

Have you heard of the KonMari Method for closet organization? Marie Kondo developed an approach to decluttering using Japanese values. Many find this method to be far more than a way to tidy up. They claim it is life changing.

What is the KonMari Method?

Marie Kondo shares the KonMari Method philosophy on her website.

The KonMari Method™ is a way of life and a state of mind that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in people’s lives.

Belongings are acknowledged for their service and thanked before being let go of, if they no longer spark joy.

People are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective, and optimistic.

Have you heard of the KonMari Method for closet organization? Marie Kondo developed an approach to decluttering using Japanese values. Many find this method to be far more than a way to tidy up. They claim it is life changing.

There are several steps to the KonMari Method of cleaning up. You can read all about it in her best selling book, or begin the process by downloading the app.

Follow the Steps

The app outlines these 4 steps in the KonMari Method that may look simple but aren’t really simple at all. The process begins by imagining the life you dream of. Think about what a life free of clutter would look like for you. More than just having a clean home, what do you truly want out of life? Does a tidy life mean more space for entertaining? Or the energy for a new hobby? Begin by imagining with the end in mind, as they say.

Now it’s time to move through each category and get organizing! The KonMari Method divides your belongings into 5 categories: clothing, books, papers, konmono (or small things), and sentimental items. Begin with the first checklist and just start.

Gather everything together. It is amazing to see all of your items in one place. Once you see all of your clothing, for example, in one place it helps you visualize how much you actually have. The next step is to pick up each item one by one and determine if that item brings you joy. A Martha Stewart editor gave the process a try. Here’s what she had to say.

What I realized was that I held onto these objects for all the wrong reasons. Instead, as I picked them up, I felt a creep of anxiety at the idea of letting them “go to waste” and the excuse bubbled up, “Well, what if I need it for…?” Yes, it’s good to be prepared, but at what cost? I barely noticed them in my home so obviously they weren’t desperately “needed.” I only felt anxiety at the idea of losing them. In fact, according to Kondo, possessions are stripped of their dignity when they go unused in the home. It is better to let them go.

How Long Does it Take?

For some the process is swift. They may be able to go through the KonMari Method in a matter of days. Others can take months to move through the steps in each category. I guess the lesson is, the process takes as long as it takes. As we mentioned before, many find the process to be life changing. Isn’t that worth a bit of your time? 🙂

Are Sliding Closet Doors Right for You

When thinking about a closet redo one item is often overlooked…the closet doors! With choices like hinged doors, bi-fold doors, and sliding doors it’s hard to know what to choose. Are sliding closet doors right for you? Read more and find out!

Sliding Doors vs Hinged Doors

First lets discuss the basic differences between sliding doors and hinged doors. One set slides, and the other set swings open on hinges. Well, now that we have that sorted. 😉 Only kidding. There is a bit more to it than that.

LivSpace.com shares these advantages of Hinged Doors:

  • Improved visibility

It is easier to spot things when you open the doors as you get the entire view of the wardrobe. Unlike sliding doors, hinged doors do not conceal one side of the closet.

  • More hanging space

With hinged doors, you can hang your accessories like sling bags, scarves or belts on the back of the doors.

  • Color and finish options

Since hinged doors have been in the market for a long time, they come in various styles and colors.

Hinged doors are a more traditional option for many closets. They are the typical choice for walk in closets. One disadvantage of hinged doors is the space they take up when the door opens and closes. You must take that into consideration when arranging furniture in your room.

On the flip side, or shall we say the sliding side,  LivSpace.com shares these advantages of sliding doors:

  • Extensive length

Sliding door closets favor expansive spaces that can house a lengthy closet.

  • Contemporary style

One will have to agree that sliding door closets add an air of panache to any room. Mirrored sliding doors can give you both style and functionality in one very easy-to-maintain package.

Sliding doors are great for reach in closets. They are more compact and don’t take up any floor space. Not to mention the sleek contemporary design which appeals to many. The nature of  sliding doors does mean you can’t see the entire closet all at once. One solution is to keep off season clothes on one side, and current outfits on the other.

How to Hang Sliding Doors

If you enjoy DIY then you can hang sliding doors yourself. WikiHow has step by step instructions to help you get started. They also offer this advice:

Sliding doors are a stylish, modern way to finish your closet. With the right hardware, installing sliding closet doors on your own is simple. The key to professional-looking doors is taking the right measurements before your installation.

This is a situation where the old adage, “Measure twice, cut once” definitely holds true. If you take time to carefully measure and prepare you will have lovely sliding doors before you know it.

We Can Slide or Swing

Coat Closet Organization

Has your coat closet become a black hole of mess? Are there things piled on the floor, coats flung every which way, and random bits of life stuffed in every corner? It’s amazing how much stuff can fit into an entry closet. Here are our best tips for stellar coat closet organization.

Outdoor Gear

One of the hardest things to store is the never ending stash of hats, gloves, and scarves. If you have a shelf in your coat closet you can always add bins to store the various outdoor items. Martha Stewart suggests wire baskets.

Avoid mismatched gloves and misplaced scarves by keeping each family member’s cold-weather gear in individual wire baskets.

When everyone has their own place to store their outdoor gear you won’t have to spend every  morning searching in vain for that missing glove.

Shoes, Shoes, and More Shoes

Those every day shoes have to go somewhere. And usually they just get piled by the door. But there are ways to get them organized so that you can stop tripping over those shoes.

Better Homes and Gardens suggests a shoe tray.

Street dirt stays off the floor with a shoe tray placed at the bottom of the closet. Choose a design that’s easy to rinse and wipe clean.

A shoe tray is great for boots and other dirty shoes. If you need a bit more shoe storage than that consider putting a shoe shelf below your coats. Utilize the space from the floor to the bottom of the coats to store those kicks.

Kid Stuff Galore

Kids have a lot of STUFF. And it just seems to multiply by the day. There has to be a way to deal with the kid clutter. A Bowl Full of Lemons had the same dilemma. Here is her solution.

I decided we should cut the lower shelf in half and put up a “wall” in the middle. That way we could put two coat racks on the left side of the closet – one above the other, and keep our shoes, backpacks, lunch bags, etc. on the right side.

Make one side of your closet a traditional coat closet and leave the other side to corral all of that kid stuff. What a great idea! And with a double closet rod the kids can actually reach to hang up their own darn coats. That’s pure genius right there.

When you are getting ready to organize the “kid stuff” side take a look at what you need to store. Think about how you can use hooks or bins to house the stuff that makes your sweet offspring who they are.

What About the Coats?

We know, we know, it is a coat closet. So what are you going to do about those coats? HGTV has a few suggestions.

Rods and hooks will allow for jackets to be hung, eliminating the habit of coats being tossed onto a living room couch or chair.

Hooks can be great for children (or spouses) that don’t particularly like to mess with hangers. They can just toss the coat at the hook and go. 🙂 Coat rods are better for the more civilized among us. Use a combination of both so that the animals and their trainers in the zoo that is your home both have what they need.

How to Maximize Your Closet Space

Everyone seems to be talking about simplifying and reducing your stuff. But what if you like your stuff and prefer to keep it around for awhile? Sometimes you just need to figure out how to fit more in a closet. Who says you can’t keep all those things you love (and buy more)?!! Learn how to maximize closet space!

Maximize Your Closet Space

Normally we would start by saying purge your stuff. But not today. Today we are going to talk about how to keep your stuff and still make your closet work! So let’s start by taking a look at your closet. Do an inventory of your space. Are there hard to use spaces? Places you can’t reach? Look for the dark holes in your closet that you can never quite reach. Let’s turn those zombie infested dead zones into Hallelujah chorus singing perfection.

Who What Wear has these tips:

In deciding how to set up and store things, consider how frequently you use them. Try to keep everyday essentials front and center for easy access, and formal, seasonal, and occasional items in the very back of the closet or on a high shelf.

Double It Up

Many closets have only one closet rod. Unless you exclusively wear long dresses, you can maximize your space by using double closet rods. Double your storage for double the wardrobe fun. If you do wear at least a few long dresses, consider where you can leave a single rod for longer items, and where you can add a double rod.

Go Low, Go High

Look up! Look down! How can you make those spaces work for you? If your closet has upper shelving this is a great space to utilize for out of season clothes, or other less used items. Consider investing in shelving dividers to allow you to stack folded items. Storage boxes are another great way to store lesser used items on those top shelves. If you have a lot of height and more clothes than will fit on double closet rods you could add a pull down rod up high. That way your clothes are still easily accessible and you are taking advantage of all of your height!

Now it’s time to think about the floor. Real Simple has these tips to share:

If you have lots of long-hanging clothes, the whole bottom of the closet can become a no man’s land,” says Morgenstern. “Group your short-hanging pieces at one end of the closet and your longer-hanging clothes at the other—that will open up lots of floor space, where you can place a little dresser or a stacking shoe rack.

Shoe racks are a great way to take advantage of that floor space. You can add shelves until you reach the bottom of your clothing. Everyone knows a girl’s gotta have space for her shoes. Another option is to add large baskets or bins in a row across the floor. Add a lid to those bins for a clean look if you are a toss it and forget it kind of person.

Back It Up

Another often forgotten space is the back of your closet door. There are many door organizers available to store any number of things. Think scarves, sandals, jewelry…you name it, you can hang it! Sleek and stylish on the front, organized bliss on the back!

Best Materials for Your Closet Remodel

If you are considering a closet remodel you may be wondering what supplies to use. Here are some tips to help you choose the best materials for your closet remodel.

Wood Types

There are several types of wood that you might consider for your closet. You could use plywood, MDF, melamine, or solid wood. Each type has it’s own strengths and weaknesses (both literally and figuratively). Here is some information to help you decide what material is best for you.

If you are considering a closet remodel you may be wondering what supplies to use. Here are some tips to help you choose the best materials for your closet. #closetenvy

Plywood

You’ve heard of plywood but do you know what it really is? Wood Magazine tells us what you need to know about plywood.

Plywood has many advantages. One is dimensional stability. Cross banded layers and balanced construction mean that hardwood plywood won’t shrink, swell, or warp as much as lumber. Its thin plies, lying at right angles to each other, as well as the various core materials available, produce uniform strength both with and across the grain.

If you are considering a closet remodel you may be wondering what supplies to use. Here are some tips to help you choose the best materials for your closet. #closetenvy

Plywood also comes in various thicknesses. It can be bought in large sheets which makes it nice for big projects like a closet. Some of the down sides to plywood is the cost, it’s comparable to it’s hard wood counterparts, and limited stock. Dealers near you may only have three or four varieties.

Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)

MDF is another type of manufactured wood product. One benefit of MDF is its price. It is less expensive than solid wood or plywood making it a good option for the budget conscious DIYers out there. Learn more from Hunker about how this product can be used in closets.

MDF stands for medium density fiberboard, which is a sheet product, usually sold in sheets that are 4×8 feet in size, that is made up of reprocessed paper waste. MDF isn’t as strong as solid wood or plywood but works fine for closet shelves. One way to make MDF more resistant to sagging is to avoid using it to span more than 3 feet. If you are putting it into a closet that is 2-feet wide, this isn’t a problem.

If you are considering a closet remodel you may be wondering what supplies to use. Here are some tips to help you choose the best materials for your closet. #closetenvy

Keep in mind the size of your closet project when deciding on the type of material to use. If your shelves will span a longer stretch you may want to consider an option other than MDF. One nice thing about MDF is that it can easily be painted to fit your aesthetic. It’s a great way to add some personality to your closet design.

Solid Wood

Solid wood is yet another option for your closet shelving. Better Homes and Gardens has a few tips to share about choosing solid wood.

Not all wood is created equal, and that’s true for wood used for closet shelving, too. Softwoods, such as fir, might warp if used to store heavy items, while oak and cedar are more resilient. Types of wood vary by cost, as well, with hardwoods being more expensive than softwoods. Wood, which is widely available, might be sealed, stained, or painted. While some closet shelving units made from wood come prefabricated, wood can always be custom cut and designed to fit a specific space.

If you are considering a closet remodel you may be wondering what supplies to use. Here are some tips to help you choose the best materials for your closet. #closetenvy

Something to consider when choosing solid wood is the cost. It does give your closet a lovely look, but the budget amount may have you rethinking that decision.

Thermally Fused Laminate

Closet Envy uses Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL) to create all its premium products. TFL is produced by thermally fusing a sheet of decorative paper directly to a substrate such as MDF or particleboard.

Benefits of TFL include:

  • Durable – resistant to scratches and impact
  • Environmentally friendly – uses less resources to produce than HPL
  • Designer and Architect Friendly – any design can be used as the decorative paper
  • Budget Conscious – costs less than HPL to provide the same look and feel
  • Sustainable – using recycled wood products creates an endless supply of raw material

Baby Closet Organization Ideas

You’ve been spending day and night making sure the nursery is ready for your new baby. Now that your friends have showered you with gifts, its time to turn your attention to the closet. Here are our favorite tips for organizing a nursery closet!

You've been spending day and night making sure the nursery is ready for your new baby. Now that your friends have showered you with gifts, its time to turn your attention to the closet. Here are our favorite tips for organizing a nursery closet!

Organize by Size

Infants go through sizes at lightning speed. Which makes organizing their clothes a special situation. Homedit suggests you section the clothes.

First things first, sort through your baby’s clothes. From Newborn to 12 months, you’ll need to grab some closet dividers and get started placing each onesie and outfit into the right spot. This will make it easier for mom to find the right sizes and make it so you use all those gorgeous outfits before baby outgrows them!

You've been spending day and night making sure the nursery is ready for your new baby. Now that your friends have showered you with gifts, its time to turn your attention to the closet. Here are our favorite tips for organizing a nursery closet!

We recommend hanging as much as you can. It’s much easier to see what you have when the items are hung by size in the closet. Once clothing gets put in a drawer it can easily get covered or shoved to the back. You don’t want to miss out on some of your favorite outfits because you can’t see them!

Extra Items

Babies come with so many teeny tiny accessories. Bibs, hats, socks, shoes, pacifiers…oh my. A Night Owl Blog suggests adding baskets to drawers to organize those items.

You can use baskets in drawers to make organization easier! I grabbed shallow baskets that are making our top drawer much less of a mess. They’re great for corralling baby socks, hats, lovies and more!

Shelf It Up

If you have shelves in your closet you can use them to store a plethora of items. Stuffed animals, blankets, and clothes that are too big or too small. You will be able to find plenty of ways to utilize the shelf space in your baby’s closet.

Shelves are another great place to utilize baskets. They can hold items that are difficult to corral and keep things looking nice and clean. Put larger baskets or bins on the floor to hold stuffed animals or toys. So you know, baskets can hold babies too. All the toys will probably end up on the floor with a baby in the basket. That’s just the way life with children goes.

Don’t Forget the Design

Your nursery is the most adorable space in your house. Why shouldn’t the nursery closet be just as lovely? Project Nursery reminds us to remember the design elements when pulling together a nursery closet.

Sleek shelves, full-sized dressers, adorable baskets and bins are accentuated with wallpaper, artwork and even rugs. Watch out teeny tiny baby clothes, you may have trouble competing with these stellar inside-the-closet designs.

Pop the Top

If you have a small closet you may find that your closet rods are stuffed with hangers. Give yourself a bit more room by creating a daisy chain effect with soda can tabs. Use them to hang multiple hangers together. By going vertical you can save more space in your closet. Skirts and shirts are great items for the daisy chain solution. They are thin enough to hang vertically with ease. Who knew your soda habit would come in so handy?!!

If you have a tall closet you can utilize the top space with a pull down closet rod. There’s no need for a step stool or a 6’5″ spouse to take advantage of vertical space. You can reach all by yourself (with the help of a pull down rod, but we won’t tell).

Is your closet dark and dreary? It’s time to light it up! Take a look at some of our favorite tips for adding beautiful lighting to your walk-in closet.

Warm or Cold?

Are you a fan of warm or cool light? There are reasons you might prefer one over the other. The designers at Closet Envy know how to design with both warm and cool lighting.

Cool or warm actually refers to the color temperature of the light. Cool light looks more blue and warm light looks more yellow. The cooler the light the more it resembles daylight.

Cool light works great in modern closets with glossy finishes. It has a bright and clean look. Warm light is perfect for a closet full of wood tones. The warmer light really brings out the grain in the wood. There’s a lot to consider when you begin to look at what type of lighting you want in your closet.

Another logistical thing to consider is light bulb safety. Lighting in a closet should be covered with a shade of some kind. It is considered a fire hazard otherwise. Keep it covered to keep things safe!

Look Up!

Every closet needs an overhead light. It doesn’t have to be a bare bulb or builder grade flush mount light. Take your closet from boring to blingy with a fabulous chandelier.  You don’t have to be a princess to feel like one every day.

If your closet doesn’t have wired lighting there are battery operated options out there. You can even invest in motion sensor style lights. Whether you go for fashion or function (or both!) it’s time for your closet to see the light!

Is It Black or Blue?

Does this shirt match these pants? Do I have on two different shoes? Is this shirt black or blue? These are the questions you may be asking yourself if your closet lacks lighting. In addition to overhead lights consider adding lights above each closet rod. From that point on you will be able to see exactly what your clothes look like together. No more leaving the house wearing one blue shoe and one black shoe! Don’t pretend it hasn’t happened, we’ve all been there.
