Looking for closet organization tips for a closet under the stairs? Organizing a closet under the stairs can be a real challenge, because usually this is a small awkward space.
Never fear, the organizer lady is here!
Below you'll find the step-by-step process I used to organize my client's basement closet as well as product links and the makeover before and after photos. Happy organizing!
This was my client's basement closet before we did any organizing. It was very hard for her to get to things, since she could only take one step inside.
Here's how we reclaimed this space to become what my client wanted: a very functional storage closet.
...and go through the items one at a time. We trashed anything no longer in working condition and donated items that she didn't want anymore.
We separated the decorations by holiday (i.e. Halloween, Christmas, Easter) and everything else by what it was (i.e. suitcases, tote bags, children's books, outdoor activity gear like coolers).
...to store each category of items and labeled them accordingly.
...and put against the wall to create vertical storage space. This way she could walk all the way in and get whatever she needs from any corner of the closet. Lovely!
...with the plastic bins, the luggage and so on. We put the items she uses more frequently in the most accessible locations.
