If you live in the Northeast (as I do), your hall closet sees a lot of traffic this time of year. Between hats, gloves, scarves, and coats it may just be one of the hardest working rooms in the house.
A hall closet doesn’t have to be large to be efficient. As long as you maximize it properly you can have a space that’s welcoming and free from clutter.
Below are 5 tips on how to make the most of your hall closet:
2. Reduce the volume of goods you keep in your closet. You may love scarves, but it doesn’t mean you need to display your entire collection. I recommend keeping out your top 3 favorites and rotate as necessary.
3. Light it up! Poor lighting makes it challenging to see what you have, especially in a pinch. Adding overhead lighting not only brightens up the space, but makes it more functional.
4. Uniform your hangers. Investing in hangers of the same size, shape and color creates a sense of cohesiveness and is a quick way to reduce visual clutter.
5. Free up space. Avoid having a jam-packed closet. A good rule of thumb is to keep about 10% of your closet space empty for guests.
