One of the perks of owning your Winston at Walden home is having the luxury of your very own walk-in closet. This might be your first walk-in closet, maybe you’re sharing it with a loved one, or maybe you’re downsizing into your forever home. No matter the circumstances, properly keeping things organized will allow you to maximize the space. Follow these simple guidelines to help you maintain functional closet space:
- If you can’t remember when the last time was you wore it, ditch it. I know this might be hard (trust me), but if it’s just taking up space in your closet then it’s time to move on. You can sell your items through different online sites or drop them off at a donation center, like the Women In Need Society, or at one of many donation bins throughout the city.
- When you buy a new item, take an old one out. This will help keep your wardrobe up-to- date and in good shape. Don’t feel the need to always do this if you’re trying to build a certain wardrobe (like a professional one), but it’s a good rule to try to follow with everyday clothes. I also color-coordinate my clothes to help with finding certain items so they don’t get left behind.
- Use your wall space to hang items such as hats, scarves, purses, etc. I hang all of my hats in my closet by simply equally spacing out push pins and hanging them from there. You can also use things such as behind the door towel hangers (in the bathroom section of stores) for your scarves or install floating shelves for heavier/larger items like purses. You can be creative here and let your inner decorator come out!
