Your closet is a personal space. It’s where you store your work clothes, holiday sweaters, summer dresses and other wardrobe odds and ends. But when you share a closet with someone else, the space becomes a little less personal. Instead of having to fit one person’s wardrobe, you have to fit two. Learn 7 tips for sharing a closet with your significant other in this post!
7 Tips to Follow When Sharing a Closet with Your Partner
- Downsize your wardrobe: The first thing you want to do before sharing a closet with someone else is to sort through your clothing and determine what you no longer need. Items that are out of style, don’t fit or you no longer like should be given away, sold or donated.
- Divide space: Both members of the relationship should be present when the closet space is divided. After the closet space has been divided, both members of the relationship should feel that the space was divided equally.
- Use all available space: Take advantage of as much of the closet as you can. If you are short on hanging space, look for opportunities to add shelving either below or above the hanging clothes.
- Invest in closet organizers: Invest in options to increase your closet storage space. For example, in order to increase hanging space, you can add another rod for hanging clothing below the first rod.
- Keep out-of-season items elsewhere: Avoid storing your out-of-season items in your closet. These items can take up a lot of space and will not be needed often.
- Look for storage solutions outside of the closet: While you may prefer to hang your sports hoodies and other casual items in your closet, try to be reasonable with space. Hoodies are bulky and can easily be folded up and put in a dresser or in bins under the bed.
- Continue to purge: It’s amazing how quickly your closet can become cluttered again. Take time every few months to sort through your closet and identify items that you either no longer need, or items that can be stored elsewhere.
