Many times a closet can become a very confused mess. You may have sporting goods in the bottom with shoes and boots piled on top of them. The closet may have become a quick hiding place when tidying up the place for company that calls just before dropping in.
While the door is closed, you may feel like it is out of sight and out of mind, but open the door and the mess is there greeting you once again.
In you need some organization for your closet, try shopping for home storage solutions. You will find several home closet organization systems available that will help to organize a closet for maximum efficiency in storage of everything that needs to be stored in there. Additionally, an organized closet allows the owner to open doors and find the needed item with less frustration.
Rather than lay the electric guitar in the bottom of the closet try standing it at one end. If you keep it in its case, you will find that it takes little space and can still be easily accessed when it is time to play. If the case continues to fall over, try attaching a loose bungee cord to two eye hooks to hold the case in place. A cord and one at the bottom will hold the case securely without damage.
If you have skiing equipment, you can use a similar method to hold it into place. Two bungee cords, each attached to an eye hook that has been placed at either the top or bottom of the skis helps to keep the equipment in place so that it does not fall on your head when trying to retrieve other items from the closet. In addition, there is no danger of stepping on a ski pole and bending it if it is held in pace using the eye hooks and the bungee cord at the end of the closet.
Closets are designed for storing clothing, but if you only have one shelf above a long closet rod, you are not using this space to its greatest efficiency. Some clothing is best stored when lying flat and shoes stored on a shoe rack are held together so that you are not constantly looking for one lost shoe. The rack is an excellent way to protect the shoes from being damaged in the bottom of a closet.
Consider using double hanging racks, one above the other for most hanging clothes. Only dresses need full length hanging space. The high and low level bars are great for pants skirts and blouses. Even most suits, coats and blazers work fine
