In order to achieve the dream look for your closet, there are a few simple steps you can take. Below you will find some tips and tricks that can help you make the most of your new closet, including what to put where!

1. Watch YouTube Videos/Search Online

Get excited! It’s time to start organizing your brand new custom closet from Empire Closets. While we know reorganization of an entire closet can feel like an overwhelming process, we want this to be an enjoyable, exciting experience for you. To minimize stress, watch YouTube videos or search online about ways to organize your closet. This will hopefully give you some inspiration about what to put where in your beautiful new closet.

2. Make a List

When attempting to organize your new custom closet, it can be helpful to make a list of the types of clothes and other belongings you are planning to store in your closet. While this list doesn’t have to be complete or extremely in-depth, it can be a valuable starting point. We recommend including things like: shirts, pants, coats, shoes, and other belongings. This will get you thinking about how much stuff you have and will hopefully spark some ideas about possible organization tactics.

Making a list can also be helpful for making things seem less overwhelming. When you see everything written out, it can often look simpler than you once thought. We want your new closet to bring you joy, so we hope making a list will help you minimize some of the stress that reorganization can bring.

3. Decide Where You Want Each Type of Clothing

After you’ve created your initial list, you can move on to deciding where you want to put things. Be sure to keep in mind things such as extra storage including drawers or hidden compartments.

Another important component to consider is whether you want to put all of your clothes out at once, or store some away. With all of this extra room, you have more choices than ever before! Some people prefer to organize their closet based on seasons. For instance, during the summer, they only hang their tank tops, shorts, and summer clothes, then trade them out when winter rolls around. Depending on how much storage you have aside from the closet racks, you can decide whether you want to hang all clothes at once or keep some stored away.

Another important factor to consider is whether you want to organize clothes by similar type, or just hang them wherever. The choice is all yours! It may be useful to consider the general vibe or look you want your closet to have. If you want it to be extremely neat and organized, we recommend organizing by type. For example, group all t-shirts together, all sweatshirts together, jackets together, etc. Deciding where you want to put things beforehand can help out your mind at ease and reduce stress, so you can enjoy the experience of personalizing your new custom closet.

Get ready to have the closet of your dreams! It is yours to personalize, and we hope you run with it. For more information on our custom closets in Bronx, contact our team of closet experts at Empire Closets today!
