Organizing Trick: Hooks for Hanging Clothes
Years ago, I seen a trendy organizing idea in a buddy’s apartment. She owned a massive collection of jeans, which can be bulky to keep in a dresser drawer. So instead, she chose to hang them metal hooks in her bedroom. The hooks maintained her jeans neatly from the ground, and the row of jeans lining the wall actually looked pretty rad. The chances for hooks are really limitless. Below are some suggestions about the best way best to use a few hooks to help organize your wardrobe.

TIP: Hooks is both functional and decorative. Consider how you need to utilize your hooks until you mount them that will allow you to decide the spacing for a pair of hooks. If you plan to use all of the hooks in a functional fashion, consider the length of time the clothes will hang down so that which doesn’t look jumbled together.
Mount a lineup of hooks beneath a floating shelf, and you have an instant hook platform for hanging up your clothes and towel as you shower.

If you do not have a separate mudroom, the best spot to hang a couple hooks is right next to the front door. That way you have a place to drop off your luggage, shoes, and jacket — and also you won’t track dirt via your residence.

Every home doesn’t come complete with a full size Martha-style mudroom. However, you still need a place to hang your hat and coat at the end of a day. Hooks up high and a little bench below create a functional mudroom space from the corner of an entryway.
A system of hooks on your entryway makes it effortless to keep track of hats, hats, and winter accessories.
TIP: Hanging up your gear isn’t just about looking organized. Wet winter hats and scarves will dry out faster if they’re hung up.
This idea works for the kiddos and the grownups: hang up the outfit that you wish to use tomorrow so getting ready in the morning is that much simpler (and faster.) And hanging up your day’s outfit on a pretty hook makes your clothes feel a bit more special.
TIP: For floral hooks similar to the one shown here, have a look at Pier1 Imports.
Following is a way to provide your kiddos the organizing bug from the start. Hang the hook rack at their level so that they are easily able to hang up their jackets and hats at the close of the day (all by themselves.)
