4 Tips for Mastering Men's Closet Organization

If you share closet space with your significant other and find yourself constantly picking up and reorganizing—only to find more items living outside of the closet than properly put away—you’re not alone. As you look around, even your store-bought bins aren’t quite working. Belts are hanging off hangers, piles of clothes are draped over furniture and neckties are being hung on doorknobs. It’s challenging trying to mix different storage solutions that actually work (and look nice). No matter what you do, the hanging racks, folding baskets, and mismatched hooks aren’t quite cutting it. Not to mention you can never seem to find what you need quickly. It just seems you both organize differently. Studies have shown women often associate home tidiness with family success, while men view their possessions as a source of pleasure. The reality is that clutter generally affects men and women differently. Here are a few solutions to help develop a game plan on how you can make your shared space something special.

Did you know?

A 2012 study done at UCLA’s Center on Everyday Lives and Families (CELF) discovered that managing a large number of possessions was linked to increased levels of cortisol (stress hormone) in women. Mothers described cluttered spaces as “not fun” and “very chaotic”, while fathers often made no mention whatsoever of the messiness and were reportedly unaffected psychologically.

Tip 1: Define His Territories

Are you finding his socks mixed in with yours? Are previously worn jeans somehow ending up with neatly folded sweaters? If so, it’s time to talk about defining territories. Separating items and giving them a dedicated space provides distinctions between what is yours and his. You’ll be able to find things quickly when the location of items is consistent. This is where order begins.

Customized shelving can separate shirts, jeans, and sweaters while hanging rods are a perfect organizer for men’s clothing including longer jackets, coats, or dress shirts. Defining territories and implementing more consistency can make morning routines and getting out the door quickly an easy task.

We all have those in-between items that aren’t quite ready for the wash but could stand a few more wears before going to the laundry. Installing hooks for those often-used items can keep them off the floor and in an identifiable spot until it’s time to throw everything into the laundry.

It’s also helpful to incorporate a built-in hamper to separate clothes by color or type, which is a simple addition for shared closet organization.

You both will be shocked by how easy it is to put away clean laundry when there are solutions that make folding clothes a breeze.

Tip 3: Make Things Easy to See

Ties, hats, and shoes are an essential part of any man’s wardrobe but are easily lost and misplaced. While he has plenty of variety in his style choices, he has no organizational tools to see it all clearly. For shoes, consider the Shoe Shrine to keep pairs visible and easy to access. Stack or hang favorite ball caps so he can see all of his options. When they’re out in the open he’ll spend less time looking for buried ones or buying something new. Need necktie storage? Hang or roll up garments for simple tie storage solutions.

You are a fashionable couple which means he probably has just as many belts, watches, and cuff links as you do jewelry and handbags. Here are some accessory storage ideas for your custom closet that can encourage him to keep it all organized.

Wondering how to store watches? Try a structured drawer or stand for easy display and storage. Incorporate a belt organizer with a space-saving, slide-out belt rack.

And for sunglasses, wallets, or pocket squares, you can’t go wrong with a men’s accessory organizer in an accessory drawer. These accessory storage updates will make it easy for him to maintain and even add to his wardrobe in a way that prevents things from getting lost, tossed on the floor, or draped over furniture.
