Your closet space is like your own personalized dressing room—the more you see it this way, the more enjoyable your getting-ready routine will be. An intricately organized closet featuring designated spaces for each clothing category is key to making this space feel like your own. The first step in giving your closet a boost is getting your tools from The Container Store. The company launched their infinitely customizable TCS Closets™ line, so whether you're looking to add sturdy, beautiful shelving to your closet, or you're prepared to give it an overhaul, this is the place to look. So, are you ready for a fashion editor–approved closet? Keep reading to see the four ways you can convert your closet into your own personalized dressing room.
Although it’s not necessarily a revolutionary idea, making sure that your hangers are all uniform is the golden ticket to a beautiful closet. Consider your favorite stores you love shopping at. What kind of hangers do they use? Take inspiration from them, and get to hanging.
What’s an organized fashion girl’s biggest pet peeve? A messy drawer of accessories, of course. Dividers will make your space feel exclusive, clean, and easier to navigate. If you can see all your earrings, scarves, or belts in one place, you’ll be able to pick and choose your outfit in a snap.
Rather than folding all your pieces and stacking them on shelves, a great alternative is utilizing boxes. This way you can maximize your storage space and keep items that aren’t so appealing to the eye hidden and out of sight.
Take a cue from boutique dressing rooms and opt for wall hooks that allow you to see how your whole outfit will look from afar. These hooks are also great for keeping your go-tos at an arm’s reach.
Adding in a touch of personal flair like a rug (the fuzzier the better) to your closet space will dial the exclusivity of your space up a notch. Bonus points if you have enough room to add a sleek bench.
Sure, these look great on a coffee table or in a bookcase, but your collection of fashion books should be visible in a space that inspires your personal style the most. If you have shelves in your closet, stack the books in groups of twos or threes horizontally with the spine facing you. If your shelves are full of other items, make a tower of your favorite hardcovers in the corner of your closet; it’ll act like a stand for your shoes and will add some dimension to your space.
