Well-organised storage is the key to eternal happiness, right? Well, while we can’t exactly promise bliss ad infinitum, it’s certainly true that a good range of useful accessories tucked neatly inside your wardrobe can make life a whole lot easier. And best of all gives you the time to do the things that really matter. That’s a Foxy win-win!
Here’s 6 of the very best in wardrobe accessories that will make the most of your wardrobe space and get your life back on to easy street.
If you haven’t got something that pulls out tucked inside your wardrobe, you’re definitely missing a storage trick. From wire baskets to tie racks, from laundry bags to mirrors there is not much that does not come in a pull-out version. Why bother? Sometimes wardrobes can be situated in difficult areas where it is hard to see exactly what is going on inside, or maybe your clothes are simply jostling for space and the ability to pull an item clear of the mayhem can be a revelation. For small rooms pull-outs can work really well in helping to neatly house your belongings. Space-savers, functional and handy, pull-outs can really make your space work that much harder by customising the area to suit your clothes and individual needs.
2. Drawer inserts and dividers
There’s nothing more frustrating than when your undies get mixed up with your socks, or you lose a crucial earring amongst countless scarves and ties. Fortunately, there is a solution and it comes in the form of drawer inserts and dividers. Don’t let your drawers become a magnet for random clothing, a haven for lost items and unworn clothes. For all of us time-poor peeps who would rather be out for an ocean dip than searching for the last part of an outfit, organisation is key and drawer separators are an absolute must. Divide and conquer, you’ll be dressed in a flash with time to kill.
3. Get hooked
Convenience is king when it comes to bedroom storage, particularly for those short on space around the house. Utilise those empty doorframes for perfect hat and coat homes, with stylish and fun hook accessories. Try over-door hooks for easy install, or use multiple hook rails for organising those essentials like belts, ties or scarves. Even more perfect for a range of handbags – so you can simply grab and go.
Certain items can simply be viewed better along a rack. When it comes to choosing your pants, rather than reaching for the top of the pile or the pair that just fell out – how wonderful it would be to see at a glance every pair that you own. Racks are perfect for ensuring your clothing is ready to wear and not crushed amongst the chaos inside. Try the same installation for your belts and scarves and enjoy dressing convenience at its very finest.
5. Shoe organisers
Shoes are primary culprits when it comes to making your space look messy and cluttered. Some days you actually do need to wear four different pairs – you can’t help the weather systems. But the news is all good, because there is a way to house these growing numbers that won’t make your bedroom look like a department store in the mid-year sales. For the traditionalists there are plenty of internal storage systems available that use shelving, baskets or racks. For the more adventurous, think Manolo-style lazy susan and you have the perfect foot-shaped answer.
6. The secret space
If you need somewhere to store precious items or documents, the wardrobe can provide a great solution. For the larger wardrobe units there is often space down low to secure a safe box, an area that would otherwise be un-utilised. Think clever about how drawer inserts might work using concealed areas that could house jewellery or other precious items.
