8 TIPS TO ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET IN SUMMER

8 TIPS TO ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET IN SUMMER

It is the season to bring out all your bright, airy dresses and keep away those heavy winter clothes! Here are a few tips to get your closet ready to enjoy the sun, blooming nature and at times a bit of rain!

24-7 style

1. Store your winter clothes – store your sweaters, blazers, shawls…after getting them cleaned. Fold and arrange them neatly inside spacious organizers which can be tucked away in the attic, loft or under the bed. This way, they won’t take up space inside your closet. See: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-clothes-organizer

Pile Of Clothes

2. Get rid of clothes that you no longer wear – no matter how trendy an outfit, if you haven’t worn it in over a year, it’s time to give it away or donate to a charity. For expensive clothes, you can either try to sell it online or to a second hand shop. Also if a piece of clothing is smelly, has stubborn old stains, itches or doesn’t fit, it is time to consider losing them. We know it’s difficult, but still!

3. Special care for delicate clothes – when you arranging those sheer summer fabrics in your closet make sure the hangers don’t snag on silk or chiffon materials.

4. Dresses with fragile embellishments – when you hang them in the closet, make sure they don’t get squished among other stuff. Try to give them some space.

5. Hanging long dresses – make sure they don’t touch the floor of the closet…the hemlines will tend to get dirty!

6. Summer accessories – Now is the time to show off those funky fashion jewelry, cool sunglasses, or that hot bikini you have been dying to wear. Use drawer organizers to keep even the smallest things, neatly and within easy reach. See: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-drawer-organizer

7. Summer shoes and bags – shoes like sandals and flip flops are usually light, fun and are in bright, fun colors! They won’t take up much space inside your closet. Or use the closet doors to hang them up. Same goes for bags too and use big bags to hold the smaller ones.

8. One last thing – Try and sort stuff in your closet according to color or type, whichever suits your need. So put shirts together, frocks together, a separate section for pants or long dresses and so on. This will make finding things easy!

The Staircase of Happy Memories

Did you know that your love for art can liven up your bathrooms too? You don’t have to display only traditional paintings or photos. You can choose to frame a bright vibrant piece of cloth like in the first image below. Or you can choose to frame any random, quirky photo that catches your fancy, like the second image below!

Frame Idea for Bathrooms

Frame Anything and Everything

Empty frames even old ones can be so useful for an interesting piece of wall art! Just affix enlarged photos on them or simply stick decorative papers over them. Another cool idea is to get the glass etched with short words of your choice.

More than Just Photo Frames

Ideas for Old Frames

It's Time to Cherish Moments

If you want to add some color to a collage, get innovative. Create bright borders with chart papers for each frame for that spunk! If you are decorating your child’s room, create framed art for pictures of animals, flowers, fairytale characters, cartoons or your little one’s own artwork.

Add Some Color to the Frames

If you love some DIY or a personal touch to frames that cherish your fondest memories, this one is for you. Add a hint of paint, ribbons, satin bows, paper flowers or dainty junk ornaments to adorn even plain or old frames. Be surprised by the transformation!

Add Some Personal Touch to Frames

Use stencil lettering along with photo frames to create an emotionally touching or expressive collage!

Lastly, a giant photo frame which exhibits all your favorite moments from special occasions, vacations, family picnics or a friends’ night out…can look wonderful and impressive.

HOW TO TEACH YOUR KIDS ABOUT ORGANIZATION

Kids are super cute but they are usually mischievous mess-makers. So the earlier you start teaching them the value of organization, the more it will help them to succeed not only at school but everywhere else too.

ghk 1

babbleStart with every day habits or routine like packing lunch box or school bag, getting dressed or even brushing teeth before going to bed. This will encourage them to remember and learn to do the essential things regularly.

Designate a definite place and time of study. It should be a quiet place with least distractions. Encourage him or her to decide which assignments are priority. Sit with them to review the homework, things needed for school the next day or any special project work. You can install a pegboard near the study table to help organize papers, notes, art work, craft supplies etc. neatly.

3Use folders and files to sort and organize notes, assignments, completed work or work to do, separately. Make sure your child tries to do it himself gradually. Color code or label folders for ease if required.

While choosing a school bag or locker or closet organizer to store all school supplies, make sure it has enough compartments to arrange different things easily. This is where toddlers start figuring out what fits in where and why they should separately stack things like books, notes, stationery, lunchbox etc.

Pack-a-lock

Teaching kids to clean up after play time or store their dirty laundry neatly is a cool way to teach them organization and also keeps the nursery clutter free. Will help you to breathe easy too! Use our incredibly cute toy organizers, storage sacks and multipurpose laundry bags to control playroom mess. The double flap organizers will help them separately store their toys, games, books, clothes and much more! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-animalstorage

Use labels for bins if that makes finding stuff easier. Like for instance “Everyday toys”, “Favorite Toys”, “Old Toys”. Keep the bins for old toys or clothes higher up on the shelf and the more frequently used ones on the lower shelves so that kids are able to reach them easily. Teach them to donate toys he no longer plays with…he will learn to care for others 🙂

happyorganized life Use our colorful drawer dividers to arrange your children’s inner wear, delicate items or accessories. Motivate them to do the arranging themselves. You can also paint an old dresser with chalkboard paint and label each drawer for different items! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-closetdivider

Get a funky, vibrant calendar for your little one’s room. Let them inculcate the habit of jotting down reminders like- things to do, household chores to help with or maybe something they need for school, exam dates, assignment submission dates and so on. Or encourage them to create check lists.

When you go shopping, involve your kids while planning what things to get, which route to take. Even when you are planning a vacation, let them decide what clothes, games or essential items they want to take along.

Here are some great trends that are garnering popularity this year:

Floral wall decal or sticker is a great way to instantly get a fresh, lovely look. Especially, a large piece of art looks elegant where everything else is designed in a simple way. More ideas here: http://tinyurl.com/musg86s

Combination of shades of gray, white and black always look classic. Take a look at this room …an indoor plant or an ornate chandelier can just add that luxurious but homely touch to this sophisticated bedroom!

If you love the rooms in luxury hotels, you can get that look as shown below. Works best if your bedroom is large. Note the kind of furnishing and lighting used, to replicate the look. Soft lights, huge beds, extravagant headboards, large windows will enhance the feel.

Ethnic prints specially Moroccan has been offering universal appeal for some time. These unique designs are easy to incorporate in curtains, rugs, cushions, bedspreads or any upholstery covering. See how this room combines the “flavors” of Africa with a brick finish wall.

Green and yellow shades when used in combination with white or black, can create interesting looks. While mild shades of green can exude a tranquil feel, yellow has the power to cheer you up in a second. If you love bright or neon shades, just remember to use them in small doses for the right effect.

Using natural materials like wood, metal, stone or brick is very much in this year. Like in this room ,thick planks of wood act as wall decor behind the bed, The irregularly shaped rug lends an eccentric look!

Tartan is a pattern which is excellent for a rough, rustic yet comfortable bedroom. With an old world charm, it’s easy to use for pillows, bed covers, curtains or other furnishing. Coupled with a wooden wall, it looks gorgeous!

Blue never goes out of fashion and is a safe bet too. Soft pastel blue, navy blue, bright blue and even electric shades look stylish and work together beautifully.

Finally, never underestimate the power of white…very few things are as magically peaceful as an all white bedroom. An old fashioned four poster will make it look all the more quaint!
