Closet Organization: Carly's Closet
In the coming weeks, we will be giving everyone a quick peek into how we organize our closets. I'm going to start things out by giving you a quick walk around my space. I also have a video tour at the end if you prefer watching over reading :)
Our closet is straight off of our bathroom. There is no door, you just walk into it through the bathroom. Footprint wise, it is not large, however our closet designer was such a star that she made an amazing space for us with not a ton of space to work with.
Onto the closet... I constantly tell clients to HANG EVERYTHING THEY CAN. If you see it, you use it. If you can't see it/easily grab it, you often don't use it. With small closets, this can mean a lot of swapping out, however in my world that is worth it! New clothing to choose from every season, yes please! My hanging areas in my closet are:
1) Layers: I do my "nice layers" hung together and my "casual layers/sweatshirts" underneath. I don't put any workout stuff in here as I fold those down and put in drawers.
2) Shells: For spring/summer, I put all of my sleeveless knit/blouses and short sleeve TEES together by color. I do my short sleeve blouses and long sleeve tops/sweaters beneath. In the fall/winter I have less sleeveless/short sleeve so have my top rack just be all sleeveless/short sleeve and my bottom rack is all long sleeves and sweaters. I fold my cashmere sweaters, but hang all other sweaters as I really don't have any issues with my hangers on sweaters.
