It’s no secret that a tidy, streamlined closet for your child will keep you from losing your mind…not to mention your kids’ clothes. Think how easy the morning dress-up battle would be if you knew where exactly every sock, T-shirt, and favorite pair of shoes were. Enter Lisa Adams, designer and owner of LA Closet Design, who shares her secrets for an organized and efficient kid’s closet.
Check Off the Essentials
“Ideally, every kid’s closet should have matching kid’s hangers (if you use adult-sized ones, their clothes will just fall off), pull-out belt racks and hooks, shelf dividers, drawer inserts, a hamper, and storage baskets for sporting gear,” Adams says. You can find all of these organizing tools at any store that features home decor products, like Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store, or Target.
Stop Potential Sibling Fights
If siblings have to share a closet, keep the peace by dividing the space. “I treat it as if two partners were sharing a closet,” Adams says. “There needs to be a separation of space even if there ARE some shared spots or items.”
Customize a Small Closet
There are a few tricks to really maximize space in a small closet, like using pull-out shoe shelves that are more compact than a shoe rack or hanging shoe organizers since you can have multiple rows of shoes, but you pull each row out like a drawer. “If you have a closet with a high ceiling, use it!” Adams says. Pull-down shelves or rods help optimize the closet’s height, but that doesn’t mean you have to be seven feet tall to access them. These systems normally have pulleys or rods attached that you tug to make the shelves drop down.
