Take Out Seasonal Clothing:

After the warmer seasons, the best thing to do in order to have plenty of space in your closet for the winter is to take out the seasonal clothing. Those summer clothes can go into the under bed storage space and where you have much to store, you can also get boxes to pack most of them. With this done, you will have enough space in your closet for the winter clothes and accessories. Keeping your hats, shoes, bags and belts in the same place with your clothes make the interiors look cluttered. In order to save space, it is advised that you keep those hats, bags and shoes you don’t need in the winter at the uppermost part of the shelf. This way, you have more space in the closet for those accessories you need most in the winter and also organized too.

Create more Space for Heavy Clothing:

Since the heavy coats and sweaters you wear during winter are always heavy and take up a lot of space, it becomes necessary that you device means of having them in the closet without them occupying much space. One of such means is the use of velvet hangers. These hangers are not only durable, they are also designed to keep items hung on them closer thereby creating more space in the closet. For those loosely knit sweaters and scarves that might go out of shape if hung, you can have them folded and store them in the drawers.

Saving Space in your Bathroom Closets:

The type of blankets, linens, towels and pillow cases you use in the summer are not the same as the ones you use in the winter. Therefore, it becomes necessary that in your bathroom closet, you replace the everyday linens, towels and blankets with the ones for winter. If you don’t have enough space to store the summer items, they should be stacked in the inner part of the closet while the winter items are kept in front for easier access and use.
