One of the more depressing elements of winter kicking in is not so much summer and autumn ending but the fact that once again you are going to find yourself hauling suitcases of winter clothes out from under beds and out of cupboards. Once out items will need to washed, refreshed and ironed again and then of course the summer gear has to be packed away in their place.
Here at Room4Interiors we feel that the arrival of the dark nights should be spent curled up with a book in front of the fire not organising piles of clothes and that cold dark mornings should start with hot buttered toast and coffee, wrapped in a dressing gown rather than trying to hunt down the perfect winter outfit for that day’s weather.
With this in mind we’ve put together a mini guide to winter wardrobe organisation.
Invest in All Year Round Storage
To avoid the backbreaking and time-consuming seasonal changeovers of clothing why not invest in bedroom furniture which will hold everything with ease? Modular bedroom furniture may be designed with your clothing in mind so that all available space is used wisely.
With this type of clothing storage moving clothing around so that those items used most are to hand which makes choosing outfits quicker and easier. With overlaps in weather cycles, for example between spring and summer you may have anything from April Showers to bright, hot and sunny days having a range of all-weather clothing to hand makes sense.
Shoes and Boots
It is of course impossible to have too many pairs of shoes or boots however storing them all in a way which makes them easy to get to may sometimes cause problems. Again with modular bedroom furniture you may choose spaces which fit your collection so that your favourites and most used pairs are out and easy to find and others stored neatly in *boxes.
*Top tip – take photos of all your shoes and boots, print them off and stick to the front of the shoe boxes facing outwards. This way finding the perfect pair takes seconds and saves you opening box after box.
Dependant on the weather it may sometimes be difficult to add pizazz to your winter wardrobe, especially when outdoors as everything is covered up by heavy coats and scarves. Choose accessories such as weatherproof hats (at a jaunty angle of course), brooches, dangly earrings and outerwear embellishments to make sure you look your very best even when it’s raining.
Of course the lack of sunshine, dark days and nights and seasonal events cry out for sparkles so ensure that all of your much loved accessories are stored where you can easily reach them, finishing off each outfit perfectly.
Moving from summer wear to winter attire needn’t be a traumatic event when you have a personalised modular clothing system. An added bonus to choosing furniture such as this is that our modular bedroom furniture collections look fabulous in any room making perfect interior design as well as fashion sense.
