The everyday ecosystem of clothes can be both fascinating and frustrating, but there’s no getting round it. On the other hand, following some easy rules can go a long way. We gathered all of them here – for wardrobes and clothes of all sizes and shapes.
A tossed t-shirt or a pair of trousers on a chair. Then another shirt. By the end of a week, you have a clothing haystack to deal with. Or – you can resist gravity. A clothes rack or three gives you visibility, accessibility and a home free of textile piles. Also, they work great as room dividers.
It doesn’t enjoy the fame and status of its walk-in sibling, but the curtained wardrobe may well be the cleverer of the two. Part the fabric and you have a wall of couture in full view. Then close it for a calmer, softer look – and even reduced noise. If your bedroom isn’t the right place, take it elsewhere. Anywhere, in fact. When it’s not in use, simply shut the curtains and the room transforms back to its alter ego.
It’s the small details that complete the best outfits. So take good care of them. Handy baskets like these help you keep track of any and all. (And they don’t just look good. They’re made from ninety percent recycled material, too.)
