Walk-In Closet Organization Ideas to Max Out Your Space
In theory, a walk-in closet should have all the space and storage you need for every shoe and sweater in your wardrobe. But in practice, your actual walk-in closet may be overstuffed and super-cluttered—and definitely not Insta-worthy in the slightest.
But with a few of the right walk-in closet organization ideas (courtesy of top organizing experts), you can transform your closet into something that works for you (and looks amazing as well).
Assess What You Have
It can be tempting to start by shopping for a closet storage system, but first you need to determine exactly what needs to be stored. "A big mistake we see when people try to get organized but still feel disorganized is that they are only purchasing organizing products to fix the issue," says Jamie Hord, founder of organizing company Horderly. "Purchasing organizing products comes last. It's important to first sort and declutter your items, then have a plan on where those items will live."
Strategize Your Walk-in Closet Storage
Once you have a good idea of what's being stored in your closet, it's time to start figuring out how you'll streamline it and set it up.
Set up Your Organizing System
Once you have your walk-in-closet organizing strategy set, you can start shopping for a storage system that brings it to life and sets yourself up for success.
