Coat Closet Organization Steps
- The first step of coat closet organization is to remove all the stuff from the closet.
- Then you will need to clean the closet from top to bottom.
- After that you need to sort though all the stuff and remove anything you don’t use like heavy winter coats. Its a good time to see what you can donate.I found I had two heavy winter coats that I didn’t even use for the last two years!
- Next it is time to put everything back in the closet. When putting it all back in the closet make sure you put things away nice and neat. I like to leave extra hangers in the closet so when guests come over they will have a place to leave their coats.

How to Organize a Coat Closet
- Use hooks to make use of extra wall space- I like to hide one behind the coats for things I will not use every day like our laptop bag. I put one on the inside of the door to be able to quickly hang up a jacket so it doesn’t get thrown on the ground. I found that command makes a hock that can hold a large amount of weight for things like jackets.
- Get a shoe rack- As you see from my before picture our shoes just piled up on the floor making it hard to fit our vacuum. It gives you ten spot to keep your shoes so its a great way to keep a limit on how many shoes you have in that closet. The shoe rack doesn’t have to be just for shoes. I was able to keep all of my dogs bandanas in one of the cubbies.
- Hang up hats – My husbands hat tends to just get thrown in the closet and gets loss so command hooks are perfect to give them a place other then the floor.
- Hang anything you can hang– Coats on hangers, umbrellas on a command hook.
- Bin for vacuum pieces – Vacuums tend to have other pieces to them and instead of having them just be on a pile on the floor get a bin for them.
- Get in the habit of putting everything back where it belongs – It takes an average of 66 days to form a habit so just keep at it.
