Tips for Taking a Minimalist Approach to Your Closets in 2017


3 Ways to Conquer Office Space Clutter with Artisan Closets in Atlanta


With a new year under way, this is a great time to take a look at your closets and focus on getting them organized. One of the most effective ways to do so is by adopting a minimalist approach, which makes it easier to keep your closets in order and makes it easier to find the items you're looking for. A minimalist approach involves scaling back on the number of items you keep in your closets and figuring out efficient ways to organize what's left. Keep the following tips in mind as you work toward minimalism in the new year.

Sort Through Clothes

While going through your wardrobe, sort clothing items into piles. One pile should include items you definitely want to keep, another pile should be for items that can be donated and the third pile should be clothes that need to be tossed. Donate items that you don't wear or don't need as long as they're in good condition. Throw away clothes that are torn, ripped, stained or discolored. You should end up with a much smaller wardrobe that only has essential items.

Create an Efficient Organizing System for Clothes

When you know what clothes you're going to keep in your closets, aim for a minimalist design when it comes to organizing. Keep sweaters and other items that don't go on hangers folded neatly on shelves or in storage bins. Organize skirts, tops and other hanging items by type, season or even color.

Organize Accessories and Shoes

Your minimalist approach should include everything you keep in your closets. Get rid of shoes and accessories you don't need, and organize the rest. Keep shoes in clear shoeboxes or on shoe racks. Use hooks and drawers for storing belts, scarves and other accessories. Once you've met your minimalist goals, consider giving your closets a makeover for the new year.
