Having a huge walk in closet in your master bedroom is a good thing—until it comes to cleaning it out! The larger your master bedroom closet, the more stuff seems to pile up. That’s where Harkraft comes to the rescue. Use our closet storage and organizing tips to get your master bedroom closet in tip top shape.
1. Tackle one section at a time.
Don’t try to tackle cleaning and organizing the entire master bedroom closet at once. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the clutter. Instead, break the project into bite-size tasks, such as sorting through your clothes for giveaways, organizing your shoes, or decluttering one shelf at a time.
2. Donate items you don’t need.
One of the first steps you can take is to get rid of the clothing and items you no longer need. Set out two bags or boxes—one for donations or consignments and one for trash. Throw out any clothing, shoes, or accessories you haven’t worn in at least a year. If you need moral support to get rid of clothing you don’t wear, ask a friend to come over and help you. In exchange, they can take their pick of clothing and items that you’d be donating instead.
Throw away clothing that’s damaged, ripped, stained, or otherwise irreparable. Don’t donate throwaway items to charity. Set aside items that need small repairs if you’re willing to do them—such as sewing on buttons or fixing a hem.
3. Find the best closet storage solution for your closet.
Your closet storage should be customized for your master bedroom closet. If you have a lot of hanging clothes, you’ll need plenty of clothing racks. If you’re obsessed with shoes, you’ll need extra closet shelving or shoe racks at the bottom of the closet. You could also use the back of the closet door for shoe storage space.
Other closet storage options include baskets for organizing socks, lingerie, and accessories; closet drawers for storing jeans and sweaters; and closet shelves that allow you to stack items for easy viewing.
Consider using Rubbermaid closet shelving that allows you to adjust the height of the shelves based on the items you want to store there.
4. Organize by color, season, or styles.
One of the last projects you should tackle is organizing your clothes, shoes, and accessories by color, season, and styles. Grouping similar items together allows you to easily mix and match outfits without digging through your closet. You can also group clothing by seasons if you live in a climate with temperature changes throughout the year.
