HIS CLOSET MAKEOVER

I would have to say organizing closets is my favorite of all the spaces I do. For many of us, getting dressed in the morning is one of the first steps in our day (after coffee, of course). Having a clean orderly closet sets the mood for the day. If you think of it that way, an often forgotten space becomes actually very important. However the benefits don’t stop in the AM. Having an organized closet with systems means everything has its place. When a client is putting away laundry there is a clear place for every item, making the process easier. Labels, baskets and a little coaching to change habits set our clients up for success. Which means being able to maintain a neat space long after we are gone. Scroll all the way to the bottom to check out the pretty dramatic before shot.

Working with the existing built-ins the client was without drawers for socks and underwear. We used these bins from the Container Store to store their undergarments. Because this is something that will be used daily we put them in an easily accessible spot. The items that are used less often were reserved for the highest and lowest shelves.

These felt hangers are a game changer (I wish I had invented them). Replacing mismatched hangers makes a big difference aesthetically. They are also more narrow than the traditional plastic hangers giving you more space.

The cutest assistant there ever was. Though more for emotional support I admit, he kept running off with shoes in mouth.

Before! There wasn’t enough shoe storage, nothing had a clear place and there weren’t any containers. This resulted in things being thrown on shelves and shoes covering the floor. The hamper was moved to the laundry room to free up floor space. What a transformation!
