There is a lot to be said about wardrobes – they’re incredibly useful, and most of us would consider them a necessity. But even if you start with excellent organisational skills when you first put things into your wardrobe, it can quickly turn into a mess once real life takes over.

We hardly have time to fold our clothes neatly, much less make sure that everything is coordinated. But it can be done, and it doesn’t have to be an impossible endeavour. All you need is a bit of time each day, or you can make an entire day’s work of it, and you’ll be glad of the results at the end of the day. So if you’ve been itching to organise your wardrobe, here are some top tips for a more organised (and neater) wardrobe.

Declutter your clothes via category

One of the first things you should do is declutter – get rid of clothing and other items you no longer use. The rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used or worn an item in six months, it’s time to do away with it. But if you’re looking at the jumble of clothes in your wardrobe all piled helter-skelter, it can feel a bit overwhelming. The trick, then, is to declutter your clothes via category. Sift through everything depending on the type. Firstly, categorize them first into dresses, tops, trousers, undergarments, outerwear, and accessories. Then go through each category more efficiently. Comparing clothes using this method makes it easier to organize because the clothes are grouped similarly.

Design the space

When you’ve cleaned out your wardrobe and have decided which clothes and items to keep, it’s time to design the space according to your needs. This is the perfect opportunity to get creative, so you can work carefully with what your wardrobe can offer, whether it’s a lot of vertical storage, plenty of hanging rods, or built-in shelves. If you don’t have much to work with (if your wardrobe doesn’t have shelves at all, for example), then find out how to fix this. You can, for example, use a hanging organiser for your t-shirts and undergarments, or you can make use of plastic bins for hats, bathing suits, and sportswear. If it has a lot of shelves but not enough space for hanging clothes, perhaps you can remove some of the shelves and hang up some hooks. Alternatively, you can opt for a complete wardrobe makeover and have a fitted wardrobe built for your space – fitted bedroom Leeds designers and installers like My Fitted Bedroom, for instance, offer customised closets that are the ideal fit for any bedroom or living space.

Invest in hangers that match

We’ve seen it all before – a mass of hangers with different shapes and sizes and materials all crammed inside a wardrobe, and needless to say, it makes the space look even more cluttered and disorganised. But you can limit this clutter by investing in matching hangers, making your wardrobe look more streamlined and sleeker. Then, of course, choose hangers that can work with your items as well – such as sturdy fabric hangers for heavier suits and wire hangers for silk tops and blouses instead of wood hangers. Lastly, hang your items in the same direction, so your wardrobe looks even neater.
