That Perfectly Organized Closet of Your Dreams? It’s Easier Than You Think

That Perfectly Organized Closet of Your Dreams? It’s Easier Than You Think


By Courtney Thompson

There is something so serene, almost zen-like, about a clutter-free closet. I mean, I’m not the only one that has stared longingly at perfectly arranged closets in magazines and on Million Dollar Listing, right?! They look like the kind of rooms I want to hang out in, with a cup of tea and a great book—ya know, just like Lisa Vanderpump. 

What most of us is missing is a well-thought-out system of shelves, drawers, and hanging rods to make the best use of our closet spaces. Great news: There are an abundance of options available, for everything from tiny reach-in closets to massive walk-in ones, in all sorts of materials, colors, and at price points to suit any budget. I’m now a believer that an organized closet is key to an organized life. No more frantic searches for that blouse you haven’t worn in months but you know is in there somewhere. Now everything has its place. And I have fewer moments of “I have nothing to wear,” because now I can see everything and, I swear, I like my clothes better! So take some measurements of your space, pick one of these kits, and get ready to have a closet that makes you so proud you’ll want to leave the door open!
