ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this “Get It Done” episode we’ll show you how to organize your closet clutter and maximize your space.

Clearing the clutter in your closet can be a daunting task, but with a manufactured off-the-shelf closet system like ClosetMaid you are able to transform your closet into a more functional space. Home Depot Associate Yvette Williams is on hand to show you how to organize your home’s closets with shelving, baskets and storage bins. It’s a project that the entire family can participate in. See how with the use of Martha Stewart Living and ClosetMaid organizing solutions the Pratt Family was able to create a more functional and better organized closet for their sons Jackson and Christian in this episode of Home Savvy.

FEATURED PRODUCTS USED IN THIS EPISODE:

CLOSET DESIGN TIPS:

  • Measure
    the back wall and the two return walls of your closet before you begin. We recommend that you measure across the wall at three different heights and take the smallest dimension.
  • Reach in style closets need to be at least 22″ deep to accommodate hanging clothes.
  • Donate or throw away any clothing items you no longer plan to wear.

  • Invest in the right kind of hanger for the type of clothing you’re choosing.  Use plastic hangers for button down shirts and wooden hangers for suit jackets.

  • Remove all wire hangers and plastic dry cleaner bags.
  • Personalize your closet solution with shelving, baskets and storage bins. Home Depot carries various Martha Stewart Living and ClosetMaid products, to help you create a more functional and better organized closet.
