Among the many items that clutter our homes, clothing is one of the most difficult to organize. Not only does clothing consist of many different items, from shirts, to jeans, to dresses, but the sheer amount of clothing items we own continuously expands over time. That being said, storing and organizing our clothing is not just a problem that should be solved as soon as possible, but one which will get more difficult over time. With the right products, however, you can make organizing your wardrobe a much more manageable process.
If you are hoping to get your closet in order, there are countless products available to help you get and stay organized. A simple but effective product, entitled The Wonder Hanger, can help you hold numerous articles of clothing vertically in the space that normally would have only been used by one or two items. This hanger consists of a drop down closet rod with notches for five articles of clothing. With a closet full of Wonder Hangers, you can actually triple your capacity, and create substantial amounts of space for the inclusion of other items. You can also use the Wonder Hanger for belts, ties and other accessories.
If the Wonder Hanger is not effective enough to take care of all of your clothing storage needs, consider Closet Storage Bags as well. Closet storage bags feature long zippers on clear plastic that allow you to easily see and access your garments. Closet storage bags not only keep your clothing safe from any damaging forces, but they also allow you to keep clothing organized and separate with ease. Besides clothing, the storage bags can also store footwear and accessories.
If you have a small closet, products such as the wonder hanger and storage bins might not be the best idea for you. However, with the proper products the space in your small closet can be maximized. Stackable Storage Bins are great products that allow you to turn empty floor space in your bedroom into extra storage space for clothing, shoes or accessories. The stackable storage bins allow you to store many items that do not have a good place to stay, and they can easily fit almost anywhere in your home.
Similar to the Stackable Storage Bins, the Three Door Cubes provide shelving cubes that can be stacked on top of one another in order to give you extra storage space for any item. The Three Door Cubes are especially useful for storing sweaters and other such clothes during their off seasons. Bench and Wicker Baskets are great storage items that can help to maximize the space in your room or closet. These beautiful baskets can easily be left out in the open for all to see. The simple bench at the end of your bed features a shelf that runs underneath the seat and three wicker baskets perfect for any of your storage needs. All of the items discussed thus far are designed just as much for aesthetic pleasure as they are for utility, and they make a great addition to any room.
If you happen to be someone who either has a very substantial clothing storage need, or a very small amount of storage space, then you would probably be better off investing in a product that serves as a second closet. The Folding Garment Rack, for example, is a great product that can hold a large amount of clothing, and then be folded and stored in a small space when not in use. The Oversized Window Closet can also serve as a second closet. This product is a zippered portable closet that features a vinyl window that makes all of your clothes visible. The oversized window closed is especially useful to store seasonal items, as it will keep them entirely enclosed and out of the way during their off season. A Double Closet Rod is another product than can meet your needs for major clothing storage. This device is a free standing closet that can be assembled anywhere you wish. The frame of the double closet rod is made of steel, and is therefore sturdy enough to meet your needs. This product also includes shelving, and is tall enough to allow for additional storage on the floor below the clothing as well.
Whatever your clothing storage needs may be, whether it be to better use the closet you have, expand your storage spaces outside of the closet, or do a complete overhaul and give yourself a second closet, there is a product available to satisfy your necessities. By using these products in conjunction with one another, your clothing can be stored in a way that keeps them clean and damage free.
