Closets are not just a place to store clothes: closets can become a place to organize accessories, hang bags and backpacks, and keep housekeeping items such as vacuums, dusters, and cleaning products. When living in an apartment, it is best to make the most of closet space to keep all belongings neat and organized and to create more space in apartment living areas for furniture and decor. Below are three closet organization hacks specifically for apartment residents:
1) Create specific containers and sections with labels: The first step to organize a closet is to create specific sections so that it is possible to easily arrange closet space to contain, in addition to clothes, cleaning supplies, seasonal accessories, pet food and carriers, and/ or luggage. To do this, try out color coded bins and/ or dividers so that everything has a specific section. For example: the blue section contains batteries, tools, and light bulbs, the red section contains wrapping paper, gift bags, and leftover holiday decorations, etc. In addition to creating sections, try labeling the different areas of the closet so roommates and guests can easily determine where specific items are stored. This process can be completed for any apartment closet space: bedroom closets, hallways closets, and linen closets. By doing this, clutter in apartments will become practically non-existent.
