Organize your wardrobe in time for spring in gorgeous Georgetown with a custom remodel of your master closet.
Spring is in full swing in Georgetown, creating the quaintest atmosphere of any D.C. neighborhood (if you ask me). Flowers explode out of window boxes and lamp post planters, Tudor Place is hosting garden parties galore, and the local commerce is getting some new growth. Laduree’s macarons are finally available to Georgetown residents, and it may just be the event of the century for locals. Now is the perfect time for spring brunch parties in sundresses and khaki shorts, strolling down M street, and getting your spring wardrobe into shape.
It’s also an ideal time to do some work on the room that houses your personal wardrobe. Whether you’re in desperate need of some spring cleaning or you’re interested in a full master closet remodel, ‘tis most definitely the season to get on top of that long-overdue organizing.
1. Temperatures Are Warming Up
Nobody wants to lug clothing back and forth from the dry cleaners in the middle of a slushy snow storm. (Especially not a big blizzard like we saw last year!) Spring is your best bet for seeing pleasantly warm temperatures, meaning you won’t have to worry so much about keeping your doors wide open while the pros install your custom closet. Spring is, literally, in the air—and that means you’re likely to have good weather both for visiting your local closet company’s showroom and for enjoying a blissfully easy installation process.
2. You’re Likely to See Sunshine
If you’re interested in combining your spring cleaning and closet remodeling efforts, you’re going to need access to nature’s greatest natural deodorizer. I preach line drying clothing in the sunshine at least once a year, and springtime in mild-weathered Georgetown might be the best time to try this tip. Sunshine also helps us to feel more motivated and energetic, which makes home renovation projects a lot less of a big deal.
Plus, one of the best parts of living in Georgetown is the variety of springtime shindigs that take place here on an annual basis, including this year’s French Market, the Potomac regatta, and a plethora of art and book sales. So while you’re waiting for your clothes to dry, consider soaking up a little sunlight yourself at a local event before the summer heat starts to set in.
3. Your Spring Wardrobe Is Already in the Works
Once winter is over and you put your boots up on the shelf for the last time, you are probably aching to get out your Vineyard Vines flowy blouses, bright polos, and boat shoes. With the best retail in the district and the arrival of the perfect window-shopping weather, you’re probably already in the mood to give your wardrobe a facelift. Nobody seems to mind the severe lack of parking as much when the sun is out and you’re out for a day of spring shopping. It’s the perfect time to design a closet space (with a strategically placed valet rod or two) that will beautifully display your new finds.
4. Finances May Be in Your Favor
Tax season is a double-edged sword—you spend hours putting together your finances for the year, but you also may be looking forward to a glowing refund check in the mail. Plus, this is the time of year that you don’t need to worry about Christmas, vacations, or other major drains on your bank account. You can confidently set aside a little extra cash for a worthwhile investment in your home. And, as far as investments go, a custom closet may surprise you with its high return on investment.
5. It’s Called “Spring Cleaning” for a Reason!
Nobody is motivated to take care of household tasks in the dead of winter when we’re snuggled up under a blanket with a hot cup of Intelligentsia. Once May arrives, it’s likely that you’re back on your running schedule at the exorcist steps, jogging past historic row houses on the Chesapeake and Ohio canal trail, and looking for other ways to improve your daily life. Spring is the season of renewed action, and adding a custom organization system to your master closet is right up your alley during springtime.
