It's the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are fast approaching, and so is the need for additional storage.
From Christmas presents and holiday clothing to boxes of seasonal decorations, it won't take long for your custom closets to be bursting at the seams. If you're planning on keeping guests overnight throughout the holidays, odds are they will need access to a closet at least some of the time. Guests staying for multiple weeks will need a place to store their clothing or grab extra blankets or pillows for added comfort. The needs of family members and friends, coupled with your personal storage needs, can make closets seem stuffy, full, and extremely messy.
Keeping your closets clean is challenging to master, and clearing them out for the holidays can be frustrating at best. However, you can implement some tips and tricks today to recover massive amounts of space within a couple of days. Let's look at a few of the most popular below!
Holiday Cleaning Tips For Custom Closets
Making space in your custom closets can be a lot easier than you think. The tips included here were designed to help you reclaim precious storage space without spending too much time, money, or effort on any - one process!
1. Start With What You DON'T Want
Begin your closet cleanup by piling everything outside the room. What items do you still use? What times don't you want? Make three separate piles: keep, donate, and deep storage. Donated items should be given away as soon as possible, while deep storage items could be kept in a different location (such as an attic, garage, or storage unit).
2. Add Extra Organization
Creating a dedicated space for all the items in your home will make a massive difference in floor space. Keep as many things as you can up and off the ground. Choose to focus on bulky or hard-to-store items like shoes, purses, or other bags. Consider investing in some shelves for custom closets or wire racks that store items high off the floor.
3. Focus On The Vertical
If you can't go out, go up! Just like gardening, the vertical space in your closet should not be ignored. Focus on stackable boxes, tubs, or other items that allow you to reclaim some horizontal space. Installing cabinets, drawers, or cubbies along closet walls will consolidate items into a single, easy-to-access area.
4. Think 'Compact'
Nothing says organization like collapsible storage! Add pull-out drawers to walls or cabinet systems, put clothes into vacuum-sealable bags, and use pop-up ottomans to store items for a short time creatively. You'll love all that newfound closet space!
