Winter's been lingering & I can't wait for it to be gone! Hello color, hello blooming plants, hello walks in the park & ...
As we transition to warmer weather, now is as good a time to analyze and organize your wardrobe so that it's Spring/Summer ready. By taking stock of what you've got, you're better able to determine what needs to be repaired or replaced, and any new additions that may be needed.
Depending on your location, you may now be able to put away the winter wear that's been in constant rotation for the past few months.
However, if you're like me and you live in an older house/apartment, chances are that you may not have enough closet space to assign for seasonal storage. Here are some long & short term options for you to consider:
BUILT-IN BED STORAGE
Deep drawers would be ideal storage for heavy/bulky knitwear, flannel linen or sleepwear etc.
Here's a neat idea for storing your winter comforters, duvets and blankets.
Maximize your storage options by making use of pieces that are practical (tailored to your lifestyle) and serve multiple purposes.
Steamer trunks/antique chests, lidded baskets/totes or ottomans at the foot of the bed are good storage options for out-of-season items.
FREE STANDING STORAGE
Portable, stylish and functional - what more could you ask for? To top it off, armoires/chifferobes can be repurposed and used almost anywhere in your home.
