Now that your brand new C & C Cabinets custom closet is installed you are one step closer to having the beautifully organized closet you’ve always dreamed of. With so much space to fill, it may seem intimidating to properly organize it all.
Thankfully, the Cabinet Chic is here to help! Everything in its place, be still our hearts. Here are some of our best tips to effectively organize your new closet.
Separate Your Clothing by Type
A great first step to organizing your closet is to separate clothing and group similar pieces together. Separate work and casual first, then separate by type (shirts, pants, etc.). Then, sort the groups based on length. Short sleeves and long sleeves should be separated, and the same done for shorts and pants.
Once sorted, spacing out each section in the closet will not only make things aesthetically pleasing but make it easier to use every day.
For a Pinterest-worthy, chicly-organized closet, here are tips for effectively grouping items:
- Sweaters should be folded on shelves as hangers can cause damage over time
- Hang pants on the rod above your shirts, leaving more space at eye level
- Use baskets for socks and other small items that you need often
- Sort belts by purpose and hang them in a low-traffic area
- Fold thicker scarves while hanging lightweight scarves to save space

Declutter Your Wardrobe
It’s difficult to organize when there is too much clutter to work with. According to the National Association of Productivity and Organizing, 80% of the items we keep are never used!
By being selective of what clothing you have on display, your closet will be more you, and less of a “storage space”.
Only Show Off What You Want to Wear!
All too often we hang on to old shirts, worn-down shoes, and other clothing that we always avoid wearing when we’re getting ready. Declutter your space and make it easier to find what you are looking to wear! Consider donating any items you don’t need, or move them to a less used drawer.
Have Too Many Things to Wear?
Maybe you have a new outfit for every day of the month?
Declutter your wardrobe by keeping a fresh rotation of clothing with the seasons! Just like old clothing you don’t wear anymore, some outfits won’t get worn until it's the right season. Not to mention, you’ll have a reason to reorganize your C & C Cabinets closet at least twice a year!

Take Your Shelf Game to The Next Level!
A wall of empty shelves can be as structured or as messy as you make it! Upgrade your closet’s shelving space to simplify your organization. Roll-out shelves are a great way to enhance your closet. All the functionality of a drawer, plus the visibility of shelves!
Try adding different types of organizers within the shelves and drawers to retain structure and visibility. Remember, the more open a layout is, the easier it is to use.
Here are just a few ideas to fill your drawers:
- Baskets for socks and undergarments
- Custom Tie organizer
- Watch organizer
- Jewelry tray
Keep it unique! Don’t be afraid to try something new and utilize your space in a way that works for you. Ensuring every item has a spot is the first step to keeping your living area clean, and not losing that bracelet… again.
