In honor of Valentine’s Day The Organized Interior would like to share some relationship-saving ideas for sharing a closet. Sharing a closet can be a challenge, but with creativity, planning, and open communication it can be totally doable.
Begin with smart planning of your closet space. Look online for ideas such as open shelving, double hanging rods, drawers, storage bins, hooks, and a bar for scarves. Don’t neglect areas of storage opportunity such as the back of the door and all vertical space. If you need to hire a professional closet designer and installer it may be worth the effort and money.
Next, sort and edit your clothes, shoes, and accessories. Get rid of ill-fitting, unloved, unworn, stained and damaged clothing. If you need to, store off season items elsewhere. Organize as a team, talking through needs, habits, and division of space.
As you put items in your closet, use slim velvet hangers to reduce visual clutter and gain hanging space. Label storage bins and make sure you have a spot for a dirty clothes hamper so that clothes don’t end up on the floor. If you have a place for every item your closet is more likely to stay tidy. By careful planning , communication, and respecting each other's space and belongings you can have harmony in a shared closet space. 📸credit to HomePrit on Pinterest!
