Many of us feel drawn to the look of a minimalist closet. Your closet may be stuffed to the gills, but there are steps you can take to create the minimalist look you desire.
A Minimalist Closet
It Starts with a Purge
The only way to create a truly minimalist closet is to have more of a minimal wardrobe. The trend is definitely moving toward the less-is-more end of the spectrum. Tiny houses are popping up everywhere, and people have a strong desire for the simple life. So why not take that desire for simplicity into your closet?!!
Cincy Chic has these tips for getting started.
Start by taking all the clothing items out of your closet that you havent worn in the last month. Try on each piece of clothing and ask yourself a few questions:
- Does it fit?
- Is it flattering?
- Does it fit your life style?
- Does it need repaired or tailored?
As you begin to sort through the clothes you really need, you can start to create the space you’ve been dreaming of in your closet!
One is Enough
How many white tee shirts do you really need? Or black sweaters?Becoming a Minimalist reminds us to embrace the idea of one!
Consider the idea of one. If one can be enough, embrace it. Rather than owning an entire assortment, try owning just your favorite black dress, belt, handbag, or jacket (just to name a few ideas). A closet filled with only things you love and use will be a closet that you love to use.
One item that fits really well, makes you feel good, and coordinates with many things. Those are the types of clothes that belong in your minimalist closet!
Once you have your clothes pared down you can start to create the simply sophisticated style you are hoping for. DIY Network has these ideas for a minimalist look.
Invest in quality hangers. Having mismatched plastic and wire hangers instantly make a closet look more cluttered and disorganized. Using only one style will give a more streamlined look to your display. High-end metal or wood hangers always look great, and with fewer clothes, you won’t have to buy as many hangers.
In addition to matching hangers, consider using neutral colors to streamline your design. Covered storage options will also help you create the minimalist look you crave. Hide the clutter behind doors, or in gorgeous storage boxes.
