First impressions are everything in this day and age. In an ever-crowded environment, it is hard to stand out, but stand out we must! That’s where fashion comes in. As the saying goes, “Clothes maketh the man”. What you wear will instantly influence someone’s perception of you. So, stock up your closet and dress sharply! Wait, your closet and drawers can’t hold any more clothes? Fret not, we’re here to impart some life-changing hacks and tips on how to organise and store your clothes the right way! Read on to find out how to maximise your closet space!
Empty out your closet
First things first, empty and clean out your closet! Yes, you read that right. With an empty closet in front of you, you’ll be able to survey and have a clearer picture of the space you are working with. Don’t forget to give your closet a deep-cleaning once you have emptied it out. After all, it is home to what you wear on your body every day, and hygiene is of the utmost importance, now more than ever.
Separate your clothes by category
Looking at that mountain pile of clothing can be daunting, but don’t let that get you down. Sift through it and categorise your clothes into piles such as pants, tops, outerwear, and innerwear. Once separated, go through each clothing individually. There will definitely be some clothes that you will not have worn in years and have completely forgotten about its existence. Toss it out, or better still, donate it. Not only are you doing yourself a favour by decluttering your closet, but you’re also doing a good deed by giving away your pre-loved belongings to those in need.
Hang anything expensive (or delicate)
Hang items that crease and crumple easily or cannot be folded, such as your coats, suits, shirts, and skirts. This saves you the hassle of having to iron these items all the time before wearing them. Face them all the same way for a neater and organised look.
Colour-code your wardrobe
Tedious as it sounds, it will be rewarding. It will look incredibly aesthetic and visually pleasing, and may even merit a slot in your Instagram or Pinterest feed. More often than not, we often have a mental image of the look we’re trying to achieve when picking out clothes to wear. Thus, this will make colour-pairing and matching your clothes even easier!
Organise your drawers in the order you get dressed
What’s the first thing you put on in the morning after your shower? Put that in the top drawer to make your morning routine much easier! Now, dressing up can be done on auto-pilot where you go drawer by drawer, from top to bottom. What a revelation, innit?
Choose Extra Space Asia to store any excess clothing
