Storage Closet Organization

Make closets feel bigger and function more efficiently with these simple ways to streamline storage and organization.

Organize How You Use It

Whatever your closet corrals, it's more likely to stay orderly if it's organized by how you use it. Each season, set aside time to declutter and throw away items that are no longer needed. Relegate out-of-season decor, accessories, and clothing to high shelves and bring relevant items to the forefront. Place heavy, frequently used items on lower shelves or at floor level for easy access and lifting.

Bins & Baskets

Perfect for toys and clothes alike, bins and baskets are inexpensive; available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials; and are equally at home storing just about anything. Sort like with like, and label each container. The key to returning things to where they belong is labeling -- not only the containers, but also the shelves where they belong. Tag labels looped through basket handles can be moved around as needs or seasons change. A lidded container will shrug off dust and keep contents from spilling should it take a tumble.

Customize Your Closet

Elevate a basic closet with a customizable system of bins, rods, hooks, and cubbies. From over-the-door organizers to self-adhesive hooks, vertical storage is a lifesaver in most small closets. Store overflow items, such as paper products and cleaning supplies, near the house entry for quick and easy retrieval. In this cleaning supplies closet, labeled door caddies stocked with cleaning equipment take advantage of back-of-door space. Hang a collapsible step stool inside the door for quick access to items stashed on high shelves. If your home has young children or pets, place cleaning contents near the top, and lock cabinets for safety.

Prime Perches

A hook requires mere inches of wall or door space and can be positioned at any height. Try dangling a satchel, jewelry, or scarves on a set of hooks. Hang kids' backpacks and jackets on lower hooks so they can reach without needing to ask for assistance. An over-the-door pocket organizer frees up floor space and makes tidying up a snap.
