Baby Closet Organization – Important Tips
Many closets have too much space and are not efficient. These are some smart tips for organizing baby clothes in closets:
1. Find baby clothes
It is a well-known fact that babies have clothes sized for their age from birth to the first year. Even if they don’t buy them, friends and family will gift them oversized clothes.
It is best to divide clothes according to size and age. This will make it easy to find larger clothes and prevent you from losing them.
2. Flexibility is key
Maximize the vertical hanging space in your closet. To make the most of this wasted space, you can use a rod doubler or a custom closet system. To make it easy to find clothes, you can add drawers. These drawers can be labeled. Stacking drawers offer great flexibility.
3. Divide the existing space
Organizers are a great way to maximize the vertical space on shelves. These can be used to stack up bodysuits, tees and shoes. These are great for storing clothes your baby has yet to wear. These organizers should be labeled.
You can make your organizers and dividers if you don’t wish to purchase them. Use cardboard to cut into pieces and divide a drawer into four to six equal sections. These sections can be used for different types of clothing. Foam core board is also a good option for dividing.
4. Make use of the doors.
