How to create more space in your closet?


Managing our space is one of the most important and, at the same time, underrated skills in our society. Being able to efficiently use all the resources you have is one of the key things when it comes to living a healthy life. According to psychologists, having your apartment in order can help you focus and be overall more organized and productive. However, you may only be looking to create more space in your closet for purely practical reasons. Whatever the reason, there are several things that you must do in order to achieve this, and we are not talking just about buying moving boxes Brooklyn to help with storing your belongings.

Decluttering is the key to create more space in your closet

Decluttering is basically the first thing that you should reach out for when you are looking for ways to create more space in any part of your apartment. It is in human nature to hoard things. That is why over the years you will always some things that you cannot really describe as useful. So, start by going through your closet and getting everything outside. Lay it all on the bed so that you get the best view of it all. Chances are that at least 10 to 20 percent of them you do not need anymore.

Using alternate space can not just a practical solution, but also an attractive one

Just to be clear, you should distinguish between “junk” and “the things that you do not need anymore”. Let us take clothes as an example. There may be a coat or two that you simply do not feel attached to anymore but that your cousin or a friend may really like. Or, you can at least sell it or simply donate it to someone. The point is that decluttering is really useful to do from time to time, and not just with your closet but with everything that you own.

Manage your clothes effectively

When organizing your storage space, getting quality boxes or plastic containers is always a good idea. Now, usually, you should not store clothes into boxes, but sometimes that is the best thing you can do. For instance, if you are renovating or moving to a new home, keeping your clothes in boxes is a completely normal thing to do. You can even rent some storage space from one of the moving companies NYC offers. As we have already stated, the key lies in managing space.

Folding clothes differently can make a big difference in your closet

So, what you can do is to think about alternative ways of folding your clothes. Folding your clothes in different ways can be a really neat trick. Not every storage space will perfectly fit with folding your things the way you do now but it may be the perfect fit in some alternative way. Then, you can always think about adding more hangers or simply installing them on the wall or the ceiling, or even on the insides of the closet’s doors.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
