Master Bedroom Walk-in Closet Redo
Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy reorganizes her closet with some great and imaginative thinking. See how she takes ordinary containers at The Home Depot and gives them a new purpose in organizing the master closet.
While Lindsey and her husband share a decent sized master closet, it has slowly become a mess over the years, and it just hasn't been functioning as well as it could. Even with all these shelves, drawers and baskets, it was still overflowing. Even worse, the space was dirty.
Lindsey and her husband spent hours sorting through everything in their closet, making piles to keep, toss, donate, dry clean, and relocate. Their first round of sorting went well, but...as they started really cleaning the space; they were able to take out even more clothes that were not worn in years!
After sorting through everything, it was time to start cleaning. Swiffer 360 Dusters®
are her go-to for most of her cleaning projects. Her husband has many airborne allergies, so trapping dust is important rather than stirring it up in the air like traditional dusters often do.
The Swiffer 360 Dusters®
do a great job with surface dust, but she needed something a little more heavy duty to really get at the grime. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers® are another favorite. Then, she always follows up the wet magic eraser with a dry Bounty®
paper towel to get the last of the grime.
This is her wall space in the closet, so it has to be functional. She liked the functionality of having hooks on this one empty wall, but she hung way too much on the 4 little hooks. So she doubled her wall hanging space quickly and inexpensively by adding 4 more hooks.
She quickly filled up the hooks with hats and bag. She used a wastebasket on one of the hooks to corral scarves and handkerchiefs.
The closet is starting to come in to shape. Old hangers were swapped out with new ones. She had a lot to hang in a smallish space, and having uniform hangers made it all look so much better!
Clothes were sorted by long sleeves, then short sleeves. With all the editing they did, the shelves feel so much more open and easier to access the folded clothes. This closet also works as supply storage, so their paper towels, napkins and tissue boxes are filling up their top shelf.
She added three small baskets that hold small travel items (like passport cases and outlet adapters), winter accessories (like gloves and earmuffs), and smaller bags and clutches.
These metal buckets hold all her slippers and a couple pairs of infrequently used shoes.
