One thing most can agree on is that standard closets are not famous for their space efficiency. And, that goes double when planning a baby’s closet. Those long closet rods and widely spaced shelves leave the closet with so much wasted space.
There’s a way to organize your baby’s closet, so you put that unused space to good use. Prepare to store that baby gear, accessories, and clothing, so getting baby dressed is a breeze.
5 Tips for Organizing Your Baby’s Closet
Looking for an easy way to get your baby’s closet organized? Follow these five tips to help get the job done.
1. Sort Baby Clothes Properly
Planning for the arrival of a new baby can be loads of fun. Between your baby shopping sprees, the baby shower and all the wonderful gifts from loved ones, your baby probably has an abundance of “stuff.” In these cases, it’s really easy to forget about those larger sized clothes stored towards the back of the closet. By the time you find them later, baby has outgrown them.
Instead, divide the clothing and other gear up by size. And, get rid of things your child has outgrown. This keeps what can be worn now at the forefront of the closet.
2. Have Some Flexibility
Hanging baby clothes vertically on that one standard rod could lose you a lot of hanging space. Install a rod doubler to give you even more hanging space. You can also install a customized closet system. Your local San Antonio closet company will customize a package that can include trays, drawers, sliding baskets, a pull-out hamper and shelf fences for your baby’s closet.
3. Divide Up the Space
Standard closet shelves were not created for tiny baby clothes. Place stacking organizers in your child’s closet space, which will create divisions. Now, there are smaller sections for storing little baby shoes, accessories, clothing and other gear.
4. Don’t Forget the Doors
The back of the closet door is a great source of extra storage space. Add hooks and/or an over-the-door organizer. This gives you a great place to hand belts, hair accessories, and hats. You can even store toys, diapers, wipes and other small items.
Tip: If the pockets are clear, you can easily see through them and quickly grab what you need.
5. Customize Your Baby’s Closet
San Antonio, Texas is known for big things, but closets don’t always make that list. No matter how small your child’s closet is, it can be customized so you can utilize every bit of space in it.
