A good way to store your clothes is by dividing the solution into sections for job, leisure and party. Another way is to sort by colour. To keep a clean look, use identical hangers in the entire closet.

Robes, jeans and clothes that you use frequently can be hung on hooks inside or on the sides of your storage solution.

Jeans can be stored folded, or rolled up, while more formal trousers are best hung on extendable pant racks. This separates them for easy selection, keep them wrinkle free and takes up less space than hangers.

Hang as much as possible, preferably at two heights. The benefits are extra space, easy access and clothes that are free of creases. Hang all the way in the corners, to use the space efficiantly. Another tip? Create a gap between each item, about the width of two fingers. Not only does it look good, but it stops clothes pressing together and creating creases.

Recommended spacing between each shelf is 35 cm, when you store folded clothes. This way you won’t get an overloaded closet.

When you need new storage solutions

When organising a closet, it's good to know how much space you are working with, especially if you are installing storage. Write down the dimensions of the room, preferably along with a sketch. Don't forget to include things like doors, windows, airconditioners.

Can you sell, swop or give away to friends? This is tough, but you can do it! And you'll feel much lighter afterwards. Those clothes won't help you if they're just taking up space in your wardrobe, but never see the world outside it.
