Goodbye Chaos, Hello Dream Closet

 If you’re getting the itch to start spring cleaning early, there’s no better place to start than your closet. Begin by zeroing in on items that are worn out, no longer fit or rarely see the light of day. Donate gently used clothing to a local charity and recycle worn, hole-y clothing into rags for your cleaning supply cabinet. Now that you have the practical task of purging behind you, a fun accessory or two can turn an otherwise ho-hum closet into a thoroughly organized happy place. Here are a few of our favorite ideas.

 BOX IT UP

crates

Give smaller, lesser-used items such as special occasion handbags, swimwear, hats and mittens a home in designated storage containers. Clear snap-top boxes are practical because you can see the contents easily; for a more decorative look, try fabric-lined wire baskets or farmhouse-chic wooden crates.

 WHEN ONE DOOR OPENS

Make the most of unused space on the front or back of the closet door and hang a row of hooks, a classy mirror or an amusing piece of artwork, like this laundry-themed sign.

GUARD THE JEWELS

Jewelry organizers with clear plastic pockets and trendy fabric insets printed with chevron or ikat will keep your rings and earrings from tangling with your bracelets and necklaces.

 DOUBLE DUTY

Think creatively about what items you have that could double as functional but decorative organizational tools, like using a wire magazine holder to hold scarves or a memo board to clip headbands or hair ties.

 ACCESSORIES AS ART

Have a favorite pair of heels or a cute-as-can-be handbag? Display them like artwork on floating shelves or shadow boxes and you’ll smile every time you see them.

 EMBELLISH AT WILL

If you have a little extra space to play with in a walk-in closet, create an elegant dressing room vibe by adding a vintage chair and textured pillow to an empty corner, or switch out a plain overhead fixture with a pretty pendant light.
