Organise Your Wardrobe Like a Pro with DAY & KNIGHT

Are you constantly struggling to find an outfit because of your messy wardrobe? Do you wish you had more space and an organised system to find your clothing easily?

As experts in bespoke fitted wardrobes and interior organisation, DAY & KNIGHT has helped many homeowners create their dream wardrobes. In this article, we share our top tips for organising and sorting your wardrobe, so you can have a streamlined and stress-free experience every time you open it.

Declutter Your Wardrobe

It’s time to let go of what you don’t need, or wear anymore. Take everything out of your wardrobe and place them on your bed or a flat surface for better visibility. Then, categorise your clothing into piles, including:

  • Keep
  • Donate/sell
  • Repair
  • Toss

Be honest with yourself and don’t hold onto clothing that doesn’t fit, or suit your style and if you haven’t worn them in a while, then it’s time to say goodbye. You’ll be surprised how much more space you have once you let go of the items you no longer need.

If you keep old clothes that are rarely used for decorating, then consider packing them in vacuum storage bags and storing them in a different location. This will keep your wardrobe space for your more important day-to-day clothing.

Sort and Categorise Your Clothing

After decluttering, you should sort and categorise your clothing. Group your clothing by type (e.g., pants, shirts) or season (e.g., summer, winter). You can try organising by color or occasion (e.g., work, casual). Categorising will help you locate what you need and give you a better overview of your wardrobe.

Invest in Quality Storage Solutions

One of the secrets to an organised wardrobe is having efficient storage solutions. We recommend investing in quality hangers, purpose built shoe racks, handy storage bins, and shelf dividers to maximise space and keep your clothing in perfect condition. DAY & KNIGHT can also help design and build custom-made fitted dressing rooms and other wardrobe solutions for your specific needs and style preferences.

Keep Up with Organisational Maintenance

It’s important to keep your wardrobe organised. Every few months, go through your clothing again and declutter anything you don’t need. Make sure to also keep your storage solutions in check by regularly cleaning and dusting them. A top tip is to add a regular automatic reminder to your digital calendar.
