Clothes storage tips to give you wardrobe space

The hot season is on its way. You will be wanting out with the winter jackets and in with the summer shirts. Either you have no room for both, or your wardrobe is simply getting too muddled and you want to be able to reach a singlet without accidentally pulling out a sweater. Never fear as there are ways to overcome this dilemma that you might not have considered and you don’t have to go above and beyond to achieve them. The answer could be right under your nose. So without further ado, here are some handy storage ideas for your wardrobe space this summer.

Wardrobe Space with these Storage Ideas

Designated Storage Space
Depending on how much of a shopping junkie you are, the space in your immediate surroundings might not be enough to store all your clothes. If this is the case, you might have to designate another room for storage. For instance, the spare room or perhaps the attic or basement. If neither of these are an option, box all your unwanted clothes and transfer them to a storage facility. Based in Queensland, Fort Knox provides its customers with a wide range of storage units suitable to whatever you need taken care of, whether it’s short term or long term storing systems.

Extra Hooks and Hangers
Use the wall space in your room as an extension of your wardrobe by inserting hooks on which to hang clothes. For example, the space on the back of the door could be used to hang scarves and handbags. Alternatively, buying extra coat hangers can go along way. You don’t even realise how much space you have in your wardrobe until you hang as many coat hangers as possible in the space provided. In short, use the space you have before considering other options, particularly if you have room to spare or you’re on a budget. This option should appeal to students who would much rather spend their savings on a new laptop than on fancy bedroom storage.

Baskets and Containers
Plastic containers are probably the handiest form of storage space. They’re easy to move around and they can fit twice as many clothes as their size would suggest. Containers can live under your bed, in your closet, or up in the attic, and they take up very little space out in the open. Baskets are also a great way to save space. Placing one large basket at the end of your bed will get rid of a lot of unwanted wardrobe clutter in one go. Baskets and containers are ideal for your casual footwear and foldable clothing, which only really excludes winter jackets and maybe headwear. Keeping them within reaching distance (such as under your bed) is a suitable for smaller pieces such as socks and underwear.

The trick to storing clothes is to be versatile and, moreover, creative. While jackets aren’t able to be folded, they can be hung up, and while shoes are difficult to hang, they can be neatly tucked away. Whether you pick all three options or settle on one, you’re minimising clutter and in turn expanding your summer wardrobe space.
