Summer Organization Inspiration: 15 Gorgeous Closets & Organizers

Now that spring cleaning is out of the way, it’s time to think about getting your closets organized! Closets so often are where all of our clutter ends up. They become a home for anything that doesn’t have a place in another room, and before you know it, you have one big pile of clothes, sheets, towels, shoes and knick-knacks. For many people closets can be cluttered and stress-inducing. The good news is it does not have to be this way. Yours can be a beautiful, organized and stress-free place. A space where you can find all the items in your wardrobe quickly and have them easily accessible when you need them.

Need some inspiration? Here are 15 gorgeous closets and organizers to inspire your summer organization.

Installing cabinetry in your closets is a great way to get them organized. Make sure you think through your unique needs first. Have lots of shoes? Lots of suits? Let your specific needs shape what you install.

Closets for the kids can be a challenge. Use smaller clothes to your advantage with multiple levels of hanging and smaller cubbies to store shoes. Pull-down rods are adjustable and help in maximizing the vertical closet space.

2. Must-Have Mudrooms

Mudrooms are typically the first room you walk into when you get home, which means they’re where you unload your shoes, jackets, bags and other gear. They can quickly become a hot mess of boots and clothes strewn all over the floor if you don’t set up an effective organization system where each item has its own place and can be easily returned to the proper location.

3. Awesome Organizers

Sometimes all it takes to get organized is getting creative with the space that you have. It’s easy to daydream about having a certain amount of space or a particular room layout, but there is always an opportunity to take what you already have and make it spectacular.
