Tips for Organizing a Walk-in Closet
There are a lot of features that make for an inviting home. One of those is the ease of having a walk-in closet. The one- and two-bedroom apartments inside our Northridge apartments feature spacious walk-in closets. Here are three tips for organizing them to make the most of your space.
Store Seasonal Items
Even in Southern California, there is a change in styles for each season. Fabric foldable bags, polyester storage bins, or plastic containers all can hold off-season clothing. These include sweaters, jackets, and long pants in the summer, or shorts, tanks, and swimwear in the winter.
These bags or bins can be kept in lower portions of a closet, or on higher shelves, leaving more room for hanging in-season clothing. These storage bins are easily found in places such as the Northridge Lowe's or Walmart in nearby Porter Ranch.
Add Shelving & Cubbies
Depending on your needs, you may wish to add more usage of vertical spacing. Rather than using one shelf above hanging rods, adding additional portable shelving units, and/or cubbies, as needed allows for better usage of space.
A shoe bag hanging on the back of the door can be used for more than just shoes. You can also store socks, gloves, scarves, and more here.
Keep Your Closet Fresh
Cedar is a wonderful natural deodorizer and helps repel moths. Hanging a few cedar hanging blocks spaced evenly on the closet rods will help. Placing cedar balls in baskets or open cubes around the closet is an alternative.
