November 12, 2015

Did you know that you can quickly double the space in your closet? All you have to do is remove the clothes you only wear during certain seasons. When you change up your wardrobe twice a year, you can easily identify and remove items you don’t want anymore, and have so much more room to keep your custom closet organized. Take a look at these DIY seasonal clothing storage tips to see the best ways to organize your closet!

Custom Closet With Seasonal Clothing Storage

1. Know What You Have

A change of seasons is your best opportunity to dig through the nooks and crannies of your closet to uncover what is hidden there. After all, if you don’t know what you have, you can’t wear it. Organizing your closet starts with removing out-of-season clothes and taking a hard look at them. If you simply don’t wear them, sell or donate them. Do the same with the clothes the kids have outgrown. When that task is complete, you can sort what you have left into things you will wear now and items that should wait until spring.

2. Make Space

Now you just need to make some space to store your out-of-season clothing. Take this time to consider how you can use your space effectively for storage in general. Overhead garage storage and garage cabinets are excellent places to store things that you don’t need at the moment. If you have the room, consider your guest room closet as a veritable mine of storage space.

3. Use Overhead Garage Storage

You do not want to put just anything in overhead garage storage. It is perfect for off-season, lightweight items. You can place your seasonal sports gear or decorations there. The space is also ideal for sweater boxes full of lightweight clothing and blankets. When the winter is over, you can bring all this stuff down and have the perfect spot for your bulky snow clothes.

4. Add Garage Cabinets

You will be amazed at how much your garage will really hold if you just take advantage of all the unused space. There are many ways to organize your cluttered garage, such as throwing away your old sporting equipment. If you have a small home or minimal storage, garage cabinets and shelving are the answer to your organization frustration. Sturdy garage cabinets are built to withstand a great deal of weight. That means they will hold bins with clothing with ease, keeping them off your garage floor and out of your way.

5. Maximize the Guest Room Closet

Organizing your guest room closet is every bit as important as your own closet. You have no idea how much space you really have in there until you design a custom closet. Imagine all the room you need for spare linens, towels, blankets and hand-me-down clothes. Using a custom closet with built-in shelves and drawers gets the excess out of your room and keeps the whole home tidier.

With overhead garage storage, garage cabinets and a custom closet for the guest room, your room will be cleaner than you could have expected. Just sort through your clothes and maximize the storage in your home.
