Clothes storage can be a pain. If you love having the perfect outfit for every occasion, you might find it a challenge to properly store all your clothes, which can result in you struggling to find the right pieces or digging through rumpled clothing in small spaces. However, with the right clothes storage solutions, you can maximise the space you have and vastly improve your wardrobe organisation.
If you’re struggling with wardrobe space, read our expert tips to make the most of your clothes storage.
Choose Made to Measure Wardrobes to Maximise Space
The best way to make the most of the space you have for clothes storage is with made-to-measure wardrobes. Kingswood at Home can create a bespoke wardrobe that will seamlessly fit into the space you have available, giving you the maximum amount of storage space for your clothes.
We can design fitted wardrobes for awkward spaces, alcoves, and slanted ceilings, so no matter the size and shape of your room, we’ll make sure we find the perfect clothes storage solution. Our made-to-measure wardrobes are available in a range of materials and finishes, so you can find the perfect style for your interiors. We also provide sliding wardrobes for a sleek, modern look that also saves space.
Think About What You Need to Store
When planning your clothes storage, you should think about what sort of items you need to store. If you have a lot of longer items that will need to be hung, you should focus on creating space for rails. However, if most of your clothes can be folded, you can save more space by filling rail space with shelving. Or it might be that you need rails for shirts but not long items, in which case you might be able to double up on space with one rail on top of another.
Kingswood at Home’s expert designers will work with you to find the right solution for your requirements, including the layout and materials for your made-to-measure wardrobe. You can book an appointment to visit our showroom, or we can bring our showroom to you with a free home visit.
Utilise Seasonal Clothes Storage
Whilst you’ll probably have some items of clothing that you’ll wear all year round, you’ll probably also have plenty of things that you’ll only wear when it’s hot or when it’s cold. With these items, you should pack them away by season, freeing up space in your wardrobe for those items that you’ll definitely be wearing.
Make sure you clean your items properly before you put them in storage for the season. Ideally, you could vacuum pack the items, or a breathable bag will also keep them safe whilst they’re not in use. You can then store these items under your bed or in the loft until the weather changes and you can swap them back into your wardrobe.
Many wardrobes include a shelf at the top above the railings which is often used for bits and pieces that could be better stored elsewhere. Instead, utilise this space with knitwear. Bulky items like jumpers and cardigans can take up a lot of precious space when hung off a rail, plus, these items can get stretched or snagged on hangers. But they can often be folded easily and won’t crease due to the knit. They’ll also be easier to access on a shelve rather than stuffed into a drawer and will free up more space on your rail so you can access your other items better – or provide more space for more clothes!
Fold Clothes Neatly
You can make accessing your clothes much easier with the way that you stack your items in drawers. Instead of placing t-shirts on top of each other, so you have to rifle through the top layers to find the top you’re looking for at the bottom, instead you should carefully fold your items so they can be ‘filed’ vertically. Not only does this mean you can see everything that’s in the drawer as soon as you open it, but you’ll also save space and be able to fit more into each drawer. You could also utilise draw dividers to further keep your items organised and neat.
Maximise Shoe Storage with Bespoke Solutions
The way you store your shoes is just as important as the rest of your clothing. With bespoke, made-to-measure shoe storage, you can maximise the space available and keep all your shoes tidy and organised. You should think about where you want your shoe storage to be – it may be that it makes more sense to build in shoe storage near the front door or elsewhere in the home, freeing up more space in your wardrobe for clothing. Kingswood at Home can work with you to find the perfect place for your shoe storage, making the most of the space you have for a practical and stylish solution.
