The everyday ecosystem of clothes can be both fascinating and frustrating, but there’s no getting round it. On the other hand, following some easy rules can go a long way. We gathered all of them here – for wardrobes and clothes of all sizes and shapes.
A tossed a t-shirt or a pair of trousers on a chair. Then another shirt. By the end of a week, you have a clothing haystack to deal with. Or – you can resist gravity. A clothes rack or three gives you visibility, accessibility and a home free of textile piles. Also, they work great as room dividers.
Getting ready in the morning can involve both tough decisions and tight schedules. Organisers, boxes and inserts makes
it easier to view, find and grab what you need, helping to minimise starting time.
“Having a system for handling and caring for your clothes is an effective way to reduce clutter. A super easy tip to increase order, and reduce piling in the process, is to designate a spot to hang clothes that are worn but not quite ready to wash.“
Chiara Effroi Lutteri, interior designer at IKEA
Dressing up for occasions when you have time and energy is great. For most other days, however, a basic collection of no- nonsense garments can be a winning choice – easy to pick out and off you go.
Sculptural form meets jacket-wrangling practicality: it’s hard to picture a hallway that wouldn’t be improved by this hat and coat stand.
It doesn’t enjoy the fame and status of its walk-in sibling, but the curtained wardrobe may well be the cleverer of the two. Part the fabric and you have a wall of couture in full view. Then close it for a calmer, softer look – and even reduced noise for
a sounder night’s sleep. If your bedroom isn’t the right place, take it elsewhere. Anywhere, in fact. When it’s not in use, simply shut the curtains and the room transforms back to its alter ego.
For final-tweak accessories or small-item holding for each family member, a wheeled drawer unit will do the trick. When it’s time for seasonal storage, simply load it up and roll it away.
Besides making the most of both space and budget, curtains work for more than rows of clothes. Like using a section of the wall for a dressing table. Getting ready in the morning is suddenly a one-stop shop.
It’s the small details that complete the best outfits. So take good care of them. Handy baskets like these help you keep track of any and all. (And they don’t just look good. They’re made from ninety per cent recycled material, too.)
Need a wardrobe but want to avoid the bulk and sharp lines? Go with a soft lining instead. Open and accessible, or simply unroll the cloth cover for an organised, even calmer look.
Scarves, necklaces, ties, bows, and more. The aptly named multi-use hanger is at your command. Also, anything you hang from it will look deliberate and artful.
Some days it’s not until the rest of the
outfit is in place that you realise what tiny addition will perfect your look. Keep those assets close, and you can make the most of both inspiration and accessibility.
