First, Change Your Hangers

It’s such a small thing but we always ask our clients to invest in slimline velvet hangers – usually we like black or a blush colour as they look super chic. They’re an absolute game-changer, and you will notice a massive difference immediately – especially if you are used to wooden ones. You’ll be able to hang more clothes in your wardrobe or just have more space to see everything that’s in there. Garments don’t slip off and the uniformity will feel organised and slick. An affordable and instant change anyone can make.


Categorise & Contain

We recommend sectioning all your items into categories then storing them together in boxes or with drawer dividers. Ikea drawer organisers and dividers are one of our must-haves for any wardrobe space. Use them in your underwear drawer to section all the items and they will make getting ready much easier. Everything will have a place. Also, have a section for a lint roller and a de-pilling gadget for your knitwear. We love Steamery products.


Use Decorative Storage Baskets

If you need extra storage at the bottom or top of your wardrobe, get some decorative storage boxes that fit in with the décor of the room and fill them with items that you need to be out of the way. Have a row of the same boxes for uniformity and use these for out-of-season accessories and shoes. We love these ones.


Colour Co-Ordinate

Colour co-ordinating will instantly make your wardrobe look smarter. It’s visually appealing and, if you’re someone that likes wearing colour, it’s so uplifting. It’s also extremely practical, as you instantly know where every piece is – essential for effortless dressing.


Fold & Roll

The ‘fold and roll’ technique is the best way to keep clothes tidy on a shelf or in a drawer and we love to use this technique for jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts. It’s great for cotton basics and gym wear, as the fabrics fold well and will take up much less space, so you can either fit more in or just have more space to see what’s there.  


Keep It Seasonal

Most people don’t have a walk-in wardrobe, so space is always an issue. If you struggle with maximising space, it’s so important to keep seasonal wardrobes. Our idea of a nightmare wardrobe would be everything mixed in for summer and winter – it’s such a waste and it makes everything a total mess. Really think about what’s appropriate for the time of year and store the items you don’t currently need. Keep them in suitcases, under the bed or in vacuum-packed storage bags.


Employ Some DIY Hacks

You will be surprised what is lurking in your local DIY store that could make all the difference in your wardrobe. If you have wall space, get some gold or brass hooks – you can usually get about four for £10. Arrange them next to your wardrobe for caps or belts or even jewellery pieces. Having them on show will remind you to wear them. Alternatively, use the sticky self-adhesive hooks on the inside of your wardrobe doors to keep everything neat and contained. 


Finally, Incorporate Scent

Wardrobe scents are a luxurious finishing touch. You can either add scented drawer liners, scented bags of dried flowers or scented ceramics to hang alongside your clothes. This might seem a little bit extra, but it’s lovely to open your wardrobe to a good scent. Your clothes will also feel fresher for longer.
