Sort and declutter your clothes

The first step in organising your wardrobe is working out what you really need and what you could live without. Consider the size of your wardrobe and decide which items you could sell on Depop or send to the charity shop. Think about what you wear frequently and get rid of any clothes taking up space at the back of your wardrobe.

Invest in storage boxes

Acquire storage boxes in which you can keep folded items like jumpers and underwear and store them under your bed. Keep your boxes labelled for extra clarity.

Get the right hangers

Wire hangers should be avoided, as these can leave your clothes misshapen. Instead, opt for velvet ones - clothes are less likely to slip off. Space-saving hangers, that can hold multiple items, are also a quick fix if your wardrobe is on the smaller side.

Colour code

Colour coding your clothes can make individual items easier to find and also improves the overall aesthetic of your wardrobe. Add some dividers to simplify the process.

Find a shoe rack

When thinking about the logistics of organising your wardrobe, don’t neglect to consider shoe storage - shoe racks can fit nicely on your wardrobe floor.

Hang or fold?

Learn which items you need to hang up and which items can be folded and placed in chest of drawers and shelving units. Make sure to hang up clothes that crease easily.

Prioritise high rotation outfits

Reduce the risk of hiding items you frequently wear by making sure your favourite clothing items are clearly visible at the forefront of your wardrobe.

Download a digital outfit planning app

Keep track of your clothes by using an app to plan your outfits. You can upload photos and experiment with different item combinations.

Divide your summer and winter wardrobe

This is another simple way to save space. In winter, keep your shorts and summer dresses safe in storage boxes and chest of drawers.

Take before and after pictures

Taking before and after photos of your wardrobe will inspire you to never allow it to revert to its original state. Look back on these when you require a little extra motivation.

Opt for a fitted wardrobe

Fitted, built-in wardrobes maximise existing areas and offer additional space, adding a polished finish to your bedroom.
