For this informative article, we shall begin from the principle where you have already sorted and uncluttered the room and that too-small clothes, as an example, have previously been given/sold/discarded. I’m not going to coach you on a moral lesson in fast fashion and all that. Finally, we shall speak about other furniture/spaces in the bed room, because clothes are not the only objects that must be stored.
STORAGE OF FOLDED CLOTHES
When I start to see the beautiful photos on the internet of girls who have applied the Konmari method, it sends me downright glitter. The end result is ideal nothing exceeds. And simply by taking a look at other people’s closets, I’m more relaxed. On another hand, there has long been a big question hovering over this feeling of calm: When you remove a t-shirt from the pile of well-folded t-shirts, how can it hold? A couple of years ago, before I even tried to see his book, I tried the storage boxes to compartmentalize. It’s practical up to a point. And there is not an excessive amount of concern. The truth is that the harmony of a pocket when it becomes full becomes less harmonious anyway when 3 or 4 t-shirts are missing and those that remain to break the face area a little.
WHAT SOLUTIONS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU?
Here will be the solutions/furniture that will generally be found commercially to store clothes:
The open wardrobe
I mentioned it above. The theory is that, it’s pretty. Used, it takes work to have a nice aesthetic result.
The wardrobe with a wardrobe side, a corner side.
The most common solution but which I find badly screwed up. I do believe this solution should really be combined with boxes or something to structure the spaces to optimize storage.
Handy when you fold everything but what’s beneath the battery won’t be utilized often (within store following the Konmari method that’s the merit of putting you beneath the eyes all of your clothes).
The column with shelves
It is really a bit just like the chest of drawers or the shelves of a wardrobe. It’s up to you to appropriate your furniture so that it corresponds to your needs (and that your piles of clothes don’t appear to be the Tower of Pisa).
Fifty per cent of a cabinet
Visually less bulky than a conventional cabinet. It’s lower. As I said above, this really is probably what I will choose if I have to purchase a furniture piece to store my clothes.
COMPARTMENTALIZE THE DRAWERS TO AVOID INSTALLING THE BAZAAR
Form clothes that will find their place folded on a corner or a hook, we have everything that does not fit into this category: underwear, scarves, belts, hats, gloves … One of many solutions is always to compartmentalize. You can find ready-made solutions, like at Ikea. There’s also the recovery method with shoeboxes for example.
For this aspect there, I will hardly share my experience with you, I am unable to store my pants, one by one, in a dedicated compartment. I already learned to fold them, it’s better than putting them in a ball. You can find just the scarves in France that have been all on a single (or two) hanger (s).
