Your master bedroom closet plays an important role in your house. It’s probably where most of the clothes that you wear on a regular basis are stored. It’s where you make your first decisions in the morning – what outfit to wear, what jacket to grab, which accessories will look best with the day’s ensemble. Your morning decisions can help determine how the rest of your day is going to go. A spacious, well-organized, brightly-lit closet can enable you to make the best possible decisions when starting your day, and that can help determine how the rest of your day goes. Your closet is more important than you think, and the right kind of closet organization can help improve your day in more ways than you think. Take a look at some of the things you should know about walk-in closet organization and whether it’s a DIY job.
What Do You Want From Your Closet?
Your closet isn’t just a storage space. If all that you want from it is an organized storage space, that’s fine, but your master bedroom closet can also contain a way to showcase your jewelry collection, your favorite shoes, or a display of cute hats. You can organize your clothes by season, by color, or by designer, if that’s what works for you.
What Can You Get Rid Of?
Another thing to consider before you attempt your master bedroom closet overhaul is whether or not there are things in the closet that you should get rid of. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to go through your closet once a season or so, so if it’s been that long or longer since you cleaned out the clutter, then it’s probably time to do so. It will be easier to reorganize the things that you do want to keep if you’ve gotten rid of the excess.
- Get rid of duplicates. You may need more than one pair of black pants, but do you really need six pairs?
- If you’re unsure about whether to keep an item, ask yourself if you would buy it if you saw it on a store shelf today. If not, don’t keep it.
- Separate out your favorite items of clothing. You know which clothes you choose to wear regularly – if you have to think about it, it’s not one of your favorites. There may be some clothes that you need only occasionally, but ask yourself if you really need all of the items that are taking up space in your closet that you don’t wear regularly.
Know When to Bring in a Pro
Some aspects of closet organization are inherently DIY jobs. Only you know exactly what you want from your closet and only you know which clothes you’re ready to get rid of and which ones you really need to hold on to.
