When our closets started to look old, cluttered and outdated, my wife decided that we could spruce them up at very little cost. I was very skeptical. But after the finished product and very minimal cost, I decided that I had to share it with some fellow clients and she insisted that I write about it on my blog.
- First she got rid of any “wire or cheap hangers”.
- Got rid of any old boxes or plastic storage boxes
- She replaced the hangers to all black or all white. Adding non slip hangers.
- Replaced the old storage boxes with the same coordinating color storage cases and some designer storage boxes of different shapes & sizes.
Added a multiple hanging purse holder.
We decided on black hangers throughout. Solid black boxes and a black & white print storage box. Added some tiffany blue boxes and hung up all the clothes by color & season.
Seriously, the black color against the clothes make the clothes stand out. She did another closet of all white & another of all grey. It’s great when your doing the laundry. Just hang on the coordinating hanger. The closets looks like they got a major facelift at little cost. Everything we needed was found at all the discount retailers & chains.
We recommended this to a client, who’s closet looked very messy. Now she leaves her closet doors open and is not embarrassed when buyers or agents are looking in. This is great for staging a home.
I hope you’ll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to “The OC” and I will do the same!
