declutter your wardrobe this spring

it’s that time of year, the weather is getting a little warmer and spring is in the air…what better time to re-set and clean out your wardrobe in preparation for the warmer months?

Spring is the perfect time to get organised and re-assess the way you use your wardrobe storage. If you have a more clothes than wardrobe space it may be time to consider upgrading your wardrobe cabinetry.

When adding additional wardrobe space, it’s always a good idea to consider what kind of storage best suits your space. For longer coats and dresses, you may require additional hanging space that our pantry cabinets can provide! Likewise, you may need additional drawer space for clothing items you don’t need to display with our 3 drawer cabinets. Get the best of both hanging and drawer wardrobe space by combining a pantry and drawer cabinet, for ultimate wardrobe storage.

Now you’ve got your perfect wardrobe set up it’s time to start filling it! Start by culling any clothing or shoes you haven’t reached for in over a year to optimise your storage! If you haven’t worn that coat in the previous winter and you haven’t reached for it again this winter it’s likely you also won’t wear it again next year. This is a great opportunity to create a pile of clothes to sell online or donate.

tip: if you can’t remember the last time you wore something, it might be time to let it go!

Next, you’ll need to sort! Create a donate, discard and sell pile. You’ll be surprised with how many things you can sell, keep in mind that you could be selling someone’s dream piece of clothing. Consider sorting your clothes into seasonal clothing, this method of sorting means you don’t have to look at your winter coat when it’s thirty degrees outside! Kaboodle wireware pullout baskets are a great way to separate your wardrobe by seasonality and keep everything in place.

To maximise your new wardrobe space, you may consider creating a capsule wardrobe; a capsule wardrobe keeps your amount of clothing minimal whilst maximising your options. Start with staple items that you can easily rotate through and pair with multiple pieces, for example that blazer you can wear with everything. Investing in quality pieces will assist in keeping your wardrobe organised as these pieces of clothing will last longer!

Don’t let us stop you there, you can never have too much wardrobe storage! Take your bedroom wardrobe to the next level by using a kaboodle benchtop as a floating desk. The desk can double as a study nook or an area to get ready, perfect to organise the finishing touches of your wardrobe. Secure the desk to the cabinetry and support from underneath for a strong functional space, find out more about creating a floating desk in your home here.
