Wardrobe organisation

There are so many different ways to arrange your wardrobe, but here are a few tips to

get you started:

1. Start by sorting out any items that don't belong in the wardrobe and placing them in another area of your home. This will help make the process easier as you won't have to continually be moving items around.

2. Group similar items together such as shirts, dresses and skirts. This makes it easier to quickly grab whatever you need each day.

3. Fold clothes which don't need to be hung - this will help save space in your wardrobe and keep it looking neat and tidy. Your knitted items will thank you.

4. Utilise all the storage options your wardrobe provides - use drawers for small items such as socks and underwear, and shelves for folded items like t-shirts.

5. Place any out of season clothes in a separate area or section of your wardrobe so you don't have to search through them every day.

6. Hang up coats and jackets on the most accessible area of your wardrobe so you can grab them quickly when needed, we know how unpredictable Melbourne weather can be.

7. Hang delicate items such as dresses and blouses in a way that won't cause creasing or disfiguration.

8. Add storage organisers such as shelves, drawers, boxes and drawer separators to help store small accessories like scarves and belts.

9. Make use of wall space either in your wardrobe or externally to hang jewellery and other small items that can be placed on hooks or little narrow shelves.

10. Hang trousers the correct way - fold them in half and hang from the waistband rather than from the bottom of the leg, this will save a lot of space!

11. Use dividers and containers to store folded items such as t-shirts, sweaters and other garments.

12. Place items that you use frequently in the most accessible area of your wardrobe so you can easily find them when needed.
