Does your closet have empty wall space you’re not using? Does it have rack upon rack of unorganized shelving and you can’t find anything? Well that doesn’t sound like a very organized closet, does it? Watch the IKEA Home Tour Squad come to the rescue by whipping this closet into shape in a lightning-fast four hours with lots of great IKEA storage solutions.
Here are some tips from the Squad’s closet makeover:
1. When clearing out your closet, consider donating items you haven’t used in over a year.
2. Keep photos and measurements for your closet on your smartphone or tablet to reference while shopping.
3. Organize your closet into two parts: one for clothing storage, the other for a getting ready area.
3. Use versatile closet storage solutions such as ALGOT, featuring adjustable shelving to help maximize storage capacity. It can be easily updated later to accomodate wardrobe changes.
4. Use picture ledges for an accessible and visual way to display ties.
5. Keep a step stool such as the BEKVÄM tucked away for when you need to access items stored up high.
