Nothing feels better than organizing your closet at the beginning of the year. It not only gives you a chance to donate some of the not need items but also to help you see what you might need for the new year. Closet organizers can help keep your closet tidy and in order while stretching out your storage capacity. An organized closet can also keep your stuff in tiptop shape for a longer time. Today, I’m sharing a round up of closet organizing essentials for clothes, accessories, footwear, and everything else that you keep in your closet.
21 Closet Organizing Essentials
Rounding up my favorite storage solutions and organization ideas for your closet that will help make it look like you hired a professional organizer and optimize for more room in your closet. Click on any of the product images to shop. All storage ideas are from Amazon, Container Store, and Bed Bath and Beyond.
Acrylic Shelf Divider
A shelf divider is the perfect closet solution to organizing sweaters, handbags and more. A valet knob on the end creates extra hanging space to your hangings rods. It’s perfect for when you need to prep ahead on what you are wearing. The clear construction and minimal design make for a seamless look in any closet!
Modular Storage Closet Storage Solution
A personal organizer that makes the most of your space with these stackable, mixable, modular storage bins. Choose from narrow designs perfect for closets and dorms, or opt for wider bins that work in craft rooms or home offices. There’s even a selection of bin styles. Open-front bins provide easy access to your shoe collection and folded garments, while drop-front bins display and protect favorite closet staples.
Drop Front Storage Box
Sophisticated, stunning storage solution. These drop front boxes are the perfect for your folded shirts, protecting against dust, and keeping them easy to access. When you stack multiple boxes, it’s always easy to access the contents, thanks to the drop-front opening. This is also a great solution for storing handbags.
Expandable Closet Shelves
These expandable closet shelves are great for taking of some of the dead space on your shelves and always for dividers to display your clothes nicely.
Undergarment Drawer Organizer
The 3 pack drawer organizer is another great storage idea for your bras, underwear and socks. It has internal cell dividers making it so easy! Not only will it save space but it will keep your closet organization in place when putting away your laundry.
Foldable Underbed Storage Bag
These foldable underbid storage bags are perfect for your out-of-season clothes or other seasonal items when needing to reduce the hanging space and or run out of closet real estate. Storing them under your bed is the perfect storage space.
Although they aren’t vacuum sealing, they are multipurpose for your clothes such as bulky sweaters, blankets and shoes.
Over the Door Organizers
Another way to organize your shoes are over-the-door shoe rack organizers when you run out of closet shelves or space on your shoe racks. Generously sized pockets hold men’s or women’s footwear, and ample space between each pocket makes it easy to insert or remove shoes. The steel hanging bar provides added support and prevents sagging.
Clear Dress Bag
These bags help protect your wardrobe from dust and pests. It can expand to fit the amount of clothes you want to protect or the space you have to store them in (it can be expanded up to 24″ in width). It fits over the closet rod and your clothes (which are hung directly on the closet rod). Two zippered openings make it easy to access your garments.
Acrylic Storage Stackable Bins
These stackable bins are a perfect elevated storage solution in your closet organization. Use them for your loungewear, accessories, purses, shoes, and much more.
Plastic Shoe Storage Boxes
These clear stackable shoe bins maximize storage space. They are perfect for keeping your shoes organized, easy to find and protected and can be stacked high in a vertical space. They are also multi-purpose to give you more room in your closet and other areas of the house such as your mudroom, bathroom, or craft rooms.
Acrylic Purse Divider
This acrylic organizer is the purse for your thin wallets, laptop cases, and clutches. Not only does it help organize, but is a great storage idea for your closet organization as you can see what you have with it being easy to find out in the open.
This modern slim design is also a perfect space-saving for your files, grocery lists, notecards in your office.
Woven Storage Square Bin
These bins are perfect storage for the top of the closet of items you don’t want to show while being aesthetically pleasing while always being great for your bulky sweaters.
Drawstring Laundry bag
This laundry bag is not only chic but features handles and a drawstring closure that makes collecting and transporting clean or dirty loads a breeze. Best of all? With a versatile, washable design, it can be used for storing shoes, sports equipment, kids toys – the possibilities are endless.
If you have the space and want to showcase some special pieces, this gold and white clothing rack from Amazon is a gorgeous way to hang clothes, display your hanging space, and complete your closet organization.
Best Closet Systems
If you are looking for closet systems, these are the three I recommend that will look like a professional organizer added their designer touches and gave you the perfect storage solutions.
Elfa Closet System
The Elfa closet system maximizes every inch of closet space to maximize vertical space while adding the beauty of real wood and the appearance of floating shelves. It provides storage for sweaters, shirts and jacket,s and a rod for pants. The mesh drawers are perfect for workout leggings and tees. The mesh shoe racks are gliding which provides easy access to your shoes. This is an amazing storage solution and is designed for a 87″ space, but can be adjusted or redesigned to fit your closet space.
Lauren Luxury Closet System
If you are looking for more of a designer closet, the Lauren Luxury Closet System is a beautiful option for your storage solution. I personally love the glass doors to showcase your beautiful clothes and shoes.
