Organizing the Bedroom Closet

The bedroom closet can be one of the hardest areas to keep organized in your home. You use it to store all types of things, from clothes and shoes to decorations and miscellaneous belongings. Whether you have a walk-in closet all to yourself, or you share a closet with your spouse or partner, it can quickly become cluttered if you don’t keep up with it. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit for anything you want to move out of the bedroom closet.

Seasonal Clothes

Seasonal clothing can be one of the biggest culprits when it comes to overcrowding the bedroom closet, especially when you’re talking about winter apparel. Sweaters, jackets, and other outerwear can take up a lot of space, so it’s often best to store these items elsewhere when they’re not in season.

If you don’t have a coat closet or other space where you can hang winter jackets and coats during the spring and summer, then a storage unit might be the best alternative. Investing in sturdy plastic tubs or wardrobe boxes can be the best way to protect your winter outerwear, helping each item maintain its shape. As for sweaters and similar clothing, it’s best to fold them and wrap them up before putting them in a plastic bin for seasonal storage.

Shoes and Boots

You might have a large collection of boots and shoes, with a pair for every occasion. Some footwear is intended for casual weekends with friends, while others are suited for parties and formal situations.

If you’ve noticed that your shoes have started to take over the floor of your closet, it might be time to add a shoe rack or an over-the-door shoe organizer. You can also sort through your shoes to see which pairs you no longer wear or which ones no longer fit and donate those that are still in good condition to a local nonprofit or charity. As for putting shoes in a storage unit, you’ll want to be sure they’re packed properly, with paper inside each one to help it retain its shape.

Miscellaneous Items

With larger closets, such as the walk-in closet in the master bedroom, it’s often easy to store other things, such as boxes of holiday decorations, in it. You may also keep family mementos, such as photo albums, in the closet, where they’re protected. However, if you find yourself adding more boxes and tubs on a regular basis, it can be worthwhile to evaluate exactly what you have stored in the closet. Can some of those boxes be put into self-storage? Is it possible to consolidate two or three smaller boxes into one larger box and keep it in the garage?

Miscellaneous items can have a way of cluttering up an otherwise organized space, including your bedroom closet. If there are random things stashed away on a top shelf or behind your shirts, it might be time to take everything out to see what’s worth keeping and what could perhaps be put into storage.
