Hangers: Good quality hangers will keep your clothing investment looking better longer. Avoid plastic tubular hangers that stretch your clothes. Hang sweaters by folding the sweater up the center and draping it over the hanger, near the hook, between the sleeve and side of the sweater.
Shoes: Reconsider where you put your shoes, a high shelf may be the best place for your tall boots. Cut a foam swim noodle the same height as the boot and insert into the boot to help retain its’ shape.
Jewelry: Keep your jewelry in the closet with your clothing, if possible. Put earrings, necklaces, rings, etc., in a plastic zip lock bag, poke a hole in it, and hang it over the hanger with the outfit or cluster it works with. Or maximize your wall space by creating a jewelry board. Take foam core, cut it to size, cover it with muslin, and hot glue the fabric to the back. Nail jewelry board to the wall and use straight pins (as for sewing) to hang necklaces, earrings, and bracelets according to color.
Lighting: Good lighting is essential and often overlooked in the closet. If lighting is dim, replace the bulb with a high wattage option and use the eco-friendly dim bulb to add“ambiance”in the living room.
