Close Your Clothes In The Closet
are sick of looking at clothes scattered all over your home. Well, the best way to deal with this problem is to store them in a proper manner.
Who says Storage can't be stunning? All it takes is fertile imagination. Here are a few ideas that could turn your closet into an asset from being a disaster area.

CLEAN UP...CLEAR OUT
Plan a closet makeover by measuring your current closet to determine hanging requirements and storage needs. Next, you'll need to clear everything out of the closet so the new system can be installed. This is a good time to go through items that may no longer be used and donate them to charity.

DOUBLE YOUR SPACE
Double closet rods-one over the other-are the best way to squeeze more storage space out of a closet. Be sure to measure the clothes you'll be hanging there and allow another 6 inches of clearance above and below each rod. Blouses, shirts, skirts, jackets, and kids' clothes will all fit on double rods.

CREATE CLOSET CUBBIES
Organize your own, or a child's closet, with a combination of double hanging rods, drawers, and shelves. Drawers corral small items like socks while cubbies hold folded items. Upper shelves can store out-of-season shoes and clothing in clear bins with lids.

DO A 'TEMPORARY' CLOSET
Can't afford the space or money to build a closet? Here's one great solution using drapery panels and easy-to-install hanging rods and wire basket storage systems. A ceiling track makes this closet disappear when guests use the room.

FILL NARROW SPACES
Look for any slices of space (in a closet or in your room), and use it to create more storage. Although you won't be able to use it for hanging clothes, you can keep your purses, handbags or even shoes in it. The key is in not overlooking any space that can serve to create more storage.

SHELVE IT
You may think more the shelves, the better it is-but this is not always true.
The shelves themselves take up inches of precious storage space in your cupboard and too many of them can make it difficult to stack or remove items on a regular basis. It's best to design shelves that will fit the various items you have to store. So instead of getting a closet and then filling it with things that will go in the closet and then plan your shelves according to your storage needs. Happy space saving!
