Walkin wardobe Organization – Categorize

The key to any successful organization project is categorizing. By grouping like things together you will make them easy to find for future use, easy to remember when it is time to put them away and your Walkin wardobe will look nice and orderly. Proper storage containers will make this task easy to accomplish and maintain.

Baskets, bins, and drawers are the perfect addition to any Walkin wardobe. They can be used to store socks in one, belts in other, just try to keep like things together. Additionally, you will want to categorize your hanging clothing. The most popular way of doing this is to put all of your pants in one area, shirts, in the next and so on. If you want to go further when you are categorizing, separate your clothing into groups of when you would wear them (to work, to the gym, at home, at night) and then group the pants and tops together within those smaller categories.

Hooks are another way to store like things together. They can be used for belts, ties, or purses. Having these smaller accessories in one place and on display will make your choices in the morning quicker. If you have a larger Walkin wardobe, you may want to keep your jewelry in the Walkin wardobe too. You can use a traditional jewelry box to keep them together or a small box for your earrings and another for your necklaces and so on.

You can think outside the box too, brainstorm how you use the different items in your Walkin wardobe. Maybe your workout gear can be stored in ready to wear bundles. Take your pants roll up a shirt and socks inside and they are neat inside your Walkin wardobe and ready to grab when it is time to go to the gym for a work out.

Shelving is a must, where you don’t hang a hook put up a shelf. After your shelving is up, invest or repurpose some baskets or other small receptacles to store items in.

Walkin wardobe Organization for Two

First consider building you own walkin wardrobe closet

In any couple it is bound to happen, one is the epitome of organization and the other specializes in organized chaos. Chances are there are many areas of your home where the organizer takes charge and makes sure things stay neat and tidy. But what do you do if you have to share a Walkin wardobe with a partner who does not share your love of everything in its place? Don’t despair; you have a couple of options available to you.
Option one is to never allow anyone into your Walkin wardobe except for you. This is a sure fire way to insure nothing gets misplaced or starts to get messed up. But it is not a very practical solution. You would have to pick out and put everything away, unless this appeals to you – option two is probably the way to go.
Option two is to organize the Walkin wardobe in a sensible way that makes finding items and putting them away just as easy as dumping them on the floor (well, maybe not that easy). Make sure everything thing has a home and that your partner knows where that home is. Remember that a system that works for you may not work for someone else; you need to get their buy-in too. If they are fine to leave the planning and organizing to you, investing a bit more time to label shelves and bins with the correct contents may save you some big headaches down the road.
Be prepared to do some damage control once a month, make sure the system is still working and weed out anything that isn’t. Like anything in a relationship, sharing a Walkin wardobe involves a lot of give and take. Just don’t take it too seriously; your love of organization shouldn’t get in the way of your love for your partner.
