Tips on Organising Your Wardrobe Marie Kondo Style

Apr 24,2024 | TheFurniture

A well-organised wardrobe can make a world of difference in your daily routine. It saves you time, reduces stress, and creates a serene space that reflects your personal style. And if you want an approach to tidying up that brings a sense of calm and satisfaction, try the KonMari method. Developed by Japanese organising consultant Marie Kondo, this approach focuses on decluttering by keeping only items that spark joy.

If you want to learn how to declutter and organise your wardrobe using the KonMari method, here are some tips that will also turn your closet into a joyful and tidy haven.

1. Visualising Your Ideal Wardrobe

Before you start organising your wardrobe, it's important to visualise the desired outcome. Whether you have a small closet or a spacious 3 door wardrobe with drawers, imagine how your clothes will look neatly arranged in it and picture a clutter-free, joyful space where each item reflects your personal style. This vision will guide you through the decluttering process, ensuring you keep only what truly sparks joy. 

2. Categorising and Decluttering

Start by taking everything out of your wardrobe and categorise your clothes into groups such as tops, bottoms, outerwear and accessories. Beginning the project with this step helps you see exactly what you own and makes it easier to decide what to keep. 

Once you've organised your clothes, assess each item by asking if it is something you truly need and will continue to use. Keep what you need; let go of what you don't. 

3. Folding and Storing Clothes

Marie Kondo's folding technique optimises space by creating compact, easy-to-see clothing items. Use the KonMari method to fold shirts, pants, and socks into neat, upright rectangles. Whether you have a 2 door sliding wardrobe or a chest of drawers, this vertical storage keeps items visible and accessible, making it easy to find what you need without creating a mess. 

4. Organising Accessories and Footwear

When you’re renovating your HDB home or simply conducting your annual spring cleaning project, you’ll likely find various accessories you’ve kept not just in your wardrobe but also in different places. So, buy drawer dividers or small boxes where you can keep jewellery, sunglasses and other tiny trinkets separately, making them easier to find. At the same time, you can keep scarves and belts untangled by keeping them in hanging organisers. For footwear, consider shoe racks or clear boxes to store shoes efficiently while keeping them accessible. 

Maintain Your Organised Wardrobe

To keep your wardrobe tidy and organised over time, schedule regular decluttering sessions to ensure everything continues to spark joy. Also, be mindful of your shopping habits to prevent future clutter and maintain the serenity of your organised space.
