How to get the perfect closet closet

Maintain order and good organization It helps to make better use of the cabinets and find everything at the first. Follow these tips to make the most of the space.


What you wear and what you don't. As a starting point, you should separate clothes by seasons and use. Keep everything you use on hand, and in high or less accessible places, what you only wear from time to time. Sort by categories and get rid of everything that has long been forgotten in a corner of the closet: it is rule number 1 of the expert in order Marie Kondo. Otherwise, it will remain there indefinitely.

Store vertically. Another of its most effective tricks is to fold the garments with few folds, so that they do not crumple, and place them vertically - one next to another - in drawers and shelves. Clothes occupy less and it is easy to locate without messing up everything else.

Cabinets with two bars. Have one at the top, for long garments, and another below, for short ones. And the heaviest (coats, jackets, etc.) on the left, and the lightest, on the right.
