Is your wardrobe full of clutter? Do you put excess items in your wardrobe to hide it from yourself and the world? Don’t worry. You are not alone. Although nothing’s wrong with having a cluttered wardrobe per se, having an organised storage area will help you run through chaotic mornings like a breeze because you will be able to see what you need and get it immediately from there.

All you need to do is add storage solutions to your existing space so you can take charge and get control of your clutter. You do not have to worry about a thing: some of these organising ideas are very easy that even a newbie can do it. If you are ready, here are a few helpful tips that you can implement and rely on.

Clothes Storage

When it comes to storing and organising clothes, think of how the wardrobe will be used and who will be using it. If you are a fashionista, for instance, you might want to divide your clothes into groups; tops, bottoms, accessories, footwear, etc. If you are planning to build one for your kids, you might want to use similar clothing groups and add a special area for toys and school supplies. If you are planning to share the clothing storage area with another member of the family, friend or flatmate, it would be better to build bespoke shelves, rails and drawers to keep things separate.

It would be helpful to think about the future too. For instance, you might need to anticipate the arrival of a new family member to the house or you might be having a new flatmate within the year. Will you be using the storage space in the same way? They will need storage space when they arrive so take note of that too.

Under Stairs Storage

The area underneath the stairs is a great area for storage. If you will let your imagination run, you will be able to add more storage ideas that are fun and easy. 

Since a lot of people now work from home, is this area big enough to designate to a home office? Pop in your desk and chair, find some cabinets to store office supplies and pop out the desk lamp and make this area your own!

If you need extra space to store your kitchen supplies, transforming this area into a pantry would be a reasonable thing to do. Keep your dry goods out of sight and add more character to your storage space by installing sliding doors or cabinets.

If you need an area that will serve as a playroom or playhouse for your kids, transform the space underneath the stairs into a hidden alcove or imaginative play area where your kids can enjoy.

If you have pets at home, this space is a perfect spot to place a doghouse or kennel. Just like the playroom, design this space as a safe haven for your furry ones.

If you are a bookworm, you might want to transform this space into a warm and cosy reading nook filled with bookshelves. Showcase your wonderful book collection or knick-knacks on the shelves and throw in some pillows and blankets and you might never want to leave this spot!

Wardrobe Storage

If you have the opportunity to design your very own wardrobe from scratch, grab that opportunity in a heartbeat. Build it with high-quality materials so it will last a long time and build it just the way you want it. You can do the design yourself and you can leave the installation to the experts. To save space, opt for sliding wardrobe doors. Don’t forget to install rails for your clothes, as well as drawers and open shelves to organise your other clothes and household items. A team of expert craftsmen can easily build this for you.

Go floor to ceiling if you can! This area is great for storing seasonal items that are seldom used such as winter or summer clothes and Christmas decorations.

Living Room Storage

If possible, use wall space by installing bespoke storage solutions. To complement your space, find furniture and accent pieces that will also work as storage. For instance, find a sofa that has a hidden storage compartment. In this way, you will be able to maximise every inch of space you have.

If you do not have the luxury of installing bespoke shelves and cabinets, all you need to do is reinvent what you already have. For instance, instead of throwing your blankets and cushions in the corner of your living room, roll or fold them, place them inside a basket or box and tuck them away in the corner. If you have more than one box of stuff, just pile those boxes so you can save space.

Home Office Storage

When it comes to keeping your home office neat and tidy, you just need a few accessories to organise your desk. If you have a considerable amount of office supplies at hand, you might want to use magazine holders, pen holders and a stacked drawer that will blend seamlessly with your desk. These will make everything clean and simple.

Another option is to install bespoke shelves that fit perfectly with your available space, no matter where in the house it is located. Open shelves are great for styling and organising your home office. Go ahead and arrange your books and achievements neatly. For smaller items, you can place them in baskets and slide the baskets on the shelves.

If you are the type that hates to see a room full of clutter, you might want to consider having a bespoke wall of cabinets. If you have space and budget, this is one way of keeping your items out of sight and out of your way. You can even use the top of the cabinets as a countertop for additional workspace.
