Hanging Closet Organization Tips:
Hanging Organization Tip #1: Use aesthetic hangers
Whether you prefer wooden, wire, plastic, or velvet hangers it really doesn’t matter. But to give your closet a more aesthetic overall look then picking one type of hanger to use will definitely elevate the look of any closet.
So, not only will it look good but it will also motivate you to want to open the closet door and keep it looking great.
Take it a step further and hang your clothes by category. Hang all tank tops together, all t-shirts, all blouses, all pants, all jeans, etc.
This will make it easy for you to find those favorite pieces every single time you want to wear them.

Hanging Organization Tip #2: Use creative hanging ideas
You only need to search Pinterest to learn about all the creative ways of hanging clothes and other items in your closet. If you haven’t already heard of using a standard “S” hook to hang all your denim jeans and shorts in your closet then you might want to look into it.
It’s a great way to see those pieces more easily and not to mention easy to hang them right back up! (Tip: make sure to measure the rod before purchasing the hook to ensure it will fit).
Also, use regular hangers to hang sweaters in creative ways so as not to ruin them. You know what I’m talking about. All those ugly hanger marks on the shoulders that seem to never go away!
Utilizing multifunctional hangers also offers ways to maximize hanging space while keeping your items looking neat and organized.

Hanging Organization Tips #3: Hang your accessories
Boots, scarves, caps, and handbags can all be hung up too. And if there is no room in your main bedroom closet then create another cute space in another closet in your home for your accessories.
These Etsy acrylic handbag hangers (pictured above) have 5-star reviews and are the perfect way to hang all those beloved handbags.
There is literally a hanger for everything you could possibly own these days! Just search Pinterest for tons of great ideas!
Use specific hangers for other accessories as well. Try hanging your winter boots and caps. It’s the ideal way to stay organized and neatly store all of your beloved shoes and accessories.

Hanging Organization Tip #4: Buy extra clothing racks
And if you are just completely lacking in actual closet space then a great alternative is to invest in a clothing rack or 2.
I think almost all women own at least one of these. I know I have 2!
One I use to specifically hang washed clothes to dry. The other is a cuter, smaller option and is used to display clothes in my office space.
I love it because it helps me organize all my outfits for the work week making it a quick, easy, no-fuss access every weekday morning when I’m in a rush with no time to waste.

Hanging Organization Tip #5: Try hanging hooks
So, if buying another clothing rack is out of the question then try a hanging hook. They work great for smaller spaces and can be easily utilized for other accessories such as belts and handbags.
Over-the-door hanging hooks are the best life savers when it comes to hanging closet organization!
Most of the time we use them for towels in the bathroom, but it is a great option for over the closet door as well to hang those next day’s go-to outfits!
