Wardrobe Storage Ideas

We ALL go gaga over having a wardrobe that is eye candy-ic – so how do we go about it? WELL, here are 13 jaw dropping storage ideas for your wardrobe. Have a look.

Most used clothes at eye level

When a dress or a tee is kept in a more VISIBLE area of the wardrobe such as the MIDDLE SHELF, you wear it more often, don’t you? That’s exactly why you should keep your most-used clothing at eye level whereas less-used clothing may be kept at a level that is somewhat lower or higher.

If you can’t hang em, box em!

Hangers are useless when it comes to folded clothes or odds and ends – what to do? Well, use drawers for your folded clothing or boxes for clothes that you wear once in a blue moon. For dresses or suits, hangers continue to be your savior.

Speaking of hangers, you could also use soda can tabs to hook hangers together and double your storage space in the blink of an eye.
