Clear out the clutter: step one is the one that will take some time and thinking, but it is the most important step in the process. More often than not our closets become messy and overburdened because we have been adding items and not taking any out. Over time we find it difficult to take out what we want without disarranging the items next to it and find it equally difficult to put an item back in without shoving things around to create some space.

Start by taking everything out and placing them in piles based on some arrangement that will make it easy for you to go through and arrange them back in your closet. Workwear, eveningwear, casualwear for example or tops, bottoms and innerwear.

Adopt a minimalist attitude and choose to get rid of anything that doesn’t serve a purpose anymore. Use your judgement about what to keep and what to toss.

Sort your clothes and accessories by season: the objective is to make your closet work for you bysimplifying the way you use your closet. Arranging your clothes by season means that what you want for the season is in full view and easily accessible. Make it a habit to rearrange your closet at the beginning of every season.

Amp up the appeal: now that you have pulled everything out of your closet, give it a good clean and work on any repairs, a loose knob, or a creaking hinge and then think about how you can add new life to your closet. Does it need additional storage compartments, can you add a unit that can sit inside the closet to provide you with better organisation, like a set of pullout drawers.

Once you have thought through the functional aspects it’s time to think through the appeal aspects – wallpaper the interioror refresh the hardware like the door knobs. There are multiple possibilities to choose from.
