Your closet is the lynchpin of your day; the dressing area you crawl to, bleary-eyed, in the morning, and the welcoming space for undressing for bed at night. It supports you in everything you do and serves as a hub for all your activities. But the closet is humble, and no one ever stops to think about how much it really affects our lives.
Think about someone whose closets are disorganized, messy. They’re always running late and can never sift through piles of junk fast enough to find the clothing or items they really need. They’re stressed out and frustrated. We’ve all been this person at one point or another in our lives.
Now think about someone you know who has an organized closet. The person who immediately comes to mind is likely someone who’s got it all figured out. A clean, tidy closet enables them to make thoughtful choices about what to wear or what items to take along with them. And because their closet is organized, they can find what they need when they need it, allowing them to leave each morning on time, no muss, no fuss.
We all know someone who’s obviously using closet organization solutions at home. They are relaxed, well put-together, and punctual. It’s hard not to admire them—and perhaps even be a little jealous. But by using a few custom closet solutions of your own, you can be that confident, prepared person you’ve always wanted to be.
Closet Organization Helps You Start and End Your Day Right
In the real world, you’ve got meetings to attend, kids to pick up and drop off, and social commitments to keep. If you’ve got a hectic lifestyle that makes you feel like you’re constantly just trying (and failing) to keep up, it’s time for some closet organization solutions.
An important part of any professional career is presenting oneself in a positive light by dressing well. To do this, you need to keep your clothes clean and ironed, storing them somewhere easily accessible when you’re getting dressed. You need a closet to protect your clothes, as nice clothing quickly becomes an expensive collection. You need a dressing area where you can do your hair, make-up, or put on accessories. If you have kids, you have even more things to take care of before you can leave the house every morning.
Every parent knows getting kids ready for school can be an ongoing battle. One way to make mornings run more smoothly is to have well-organized closets. Some kids are picky about their outfits; a good closet organization solution for this is to use valet rods that enable you to select kids’ clothes the night before. Tidy closets make it easier to find sweaters, scarves or rain jackets if you wake up to bad weather. And they keep school, cheerleading or sports uniforms neatly lined up when kids are on the go.
Finally, a well-kept closet helps relieve stress at day’s end. When you’re getting ready for bed, they offer an area where you can hang up clothes or put soiled ones into hampers equipped with removable liners. It gives you a place to put your jewelry, wallet, and accessories so they won’t get lost. It holds your nightclothes, robe, and slippers just as faithfully as any valet. Your custom closet can have shelves to house scent diffusers, deep tissue massagers, air humidifiers and anything else you need to relax before bed. With that much less to worry about, an organized closet allows you to slip into bed and sleep soundly knowing you’re prepared for the next morning.
Customization Options for Your Ideal Closet
Your closet organization solutions should be customized to support the lifestyle you live. Some features worth considering include:
Valet rods that keep clothes wrinkle-free
Peninsulas and closet islands that add counter and storage space
Secure jewelry storage
Sturdy chrome laundry hampers that have adjustable liners
Foldable ironing boards that can be easily hidden
Tie racks that slide in and out, keeping ties crisp and ironed
Slide-out, retractable belt racks
Soft-close drawers that glide shut
Adjustable shoe-shelves that can hold any sized shoe, from sandals to boots
Of course, new closet hardware isn’t a real solution to your time management problems if it’s not built from materials that will last. Look for details such as:
Stable, floor-bolted designs
Hidden leveling legs and wall supports
Dovetail boxes that fit seamlessly within drawers
Peel-resistant edge banding, at least 3-millimeters thick
Sturdy, beautiful hardware
