Have you ever stood in front of your wardrobe overwhelmed by the mess and amount of clothes hanging around (not in) your wardrobe? Closets and wardrobes including drawers and shelves tend to get very unorganized if there is no system in place. The key is to first declutter, categorise and then contain. If you want to read more about my Organizing Method then head over here. To help with the “contain” step, here are 10 wardrobe organizers that will help you create a stylish and functional closet.
1. Slimeline Velvet Hangers
One of my favourite (and most used) products for organizing your wardrobe. They not only give you loads of room in your wardrobe as they are slimline but they look so much better than the plastic or wire hangers you get from the laundry shops. Bonus point, they give your wardrobe a streamlined chic look and lightweight items don’t slip off as the hangers are velvet. US LINK
2. Shoe boxes & Shoe Rack
I had a huge problem with my shoes flowing over all over my wardrobe. When I needed to find a pair I was searching up and down all over the place. I knew a change had to be made and a system put in place. Then I found a comfortable shoe rack and these handy shoe boxes. They keep your shoes safe, allowing you to see exactly what’s inside.

For any London home, space is pretty limited when it comes to wardrobes and closets. These door organizers really help make better use of the actual space you do have. They can hold bags and accessories comfortably. US Link

4. Under Bed Storage Boxes
Another really good organising hack is to store stuff under your bed. With these storage boxes, you can keep your seasonal items, sentimental items or even shoes hidden and out of sight until you need them.
Here are some options you can go for:
- storage plastic boxes with lids (US Link)
- wheelie plastic boxes (US Link)
- felt storage bags (US Link)
- compartmentalized felt storage bags (US Link)
- felt storage bags specifically for shoes (US Link)

6. T-shirt Organizer
I love to file fold everything. Literally, I am a Marie Kondo-loving file folder. I like all my clothes folded including t-shirts. There are people who love their t-shirts folded like a store front: in the shape of a square. I do like that fold too but I feel like it’s harder to pull out without breaking the whole pile. And you can’t really see what you have.
So I did a little research and found these t-shirt organizers that you could have in your wardrobes that supposedly make folding t-shirts easier. Have you tried any of these? I’d love to hear your experience with them:
Bonus tip: If you’re looking for a folding hack to get that perfect store t-shirt fold, try this T-shirt folder – it’s a game-changer for sure (US link).

7. Shelf Dividers
If you have a walk in wardrobe with shelves – especially harder to reach shelves – and want to display your larger sweaters perhaps or even jeans, you should definitely consider getting shelf dividers. They separate items out making it easier to contain the clothes in piles, plus there is less chance of them toppling over onto the next pile. This gives a more tidier look and keeps things looking functional and organised.
Try these handy shelf dividers if you need some inspiration:
Create even more space with these hanging shelves that attach to your shelf allowing you to store more clothes/ accessories below the shlef:

8. Bag Organizer
This has to be one of the most important storage solutions for me. I love designer bags. A little too much I think especially as I don’t actually go anywhere to wear them. Yep I know it’s not the right way but hey maybe once the kids are a little older and I no longer need to carry wipes and nappies in my bag then I can start holding that Chanel or Dior bag that just laying around in my wardrobe (all packed up nicely let me assure you).
Anyway, back to the post – having a functional and beautiful system to organise your handbags is essential to keep them looking great and keep their value. There are a few different options when it comes to organising your bags:
1) You can store them in open felt container bins to sit them inside. Positives are that you can see what you have and each bag has its own compartment and space to stand. Negatives, this option collects dust.
2) Another option would be to keep them in your under-the-bed storage options (see point 4 above).
3) You can also use a bag hanger in your wardrobes like this handy one from The Home Edit and iDesign collaboration available in John Lewis.

9. Felt Bins
Felt bins are not only functional but pretty too. They really spice up a dull wardrobe bringing it to life. They add systems and aesthetic even if your wardrobe is small or you’re short on space.
Here are some options you could go for:
- Black felt bins with handles (US link)
- Grey felt bins with handles
- Collapsible felt bins (US link)
- Bamboo & felt storage bins
- Large compartmental felt bins

10. Drawer Dividers
A drawer without dividers is called a junk drawer! Every drawer in your home should have some sort of dividers in it if you want to maintain an organised home. Having dividers in your drawers creates compartments and categories. Have you read my SLT Organising Method? (If not head over there now). If yes then you know that one vital step is to categorise your items. We store items like with like so you know where all your pens are, where all your post its are, your lighters and so on. If we categorise we create order and function to your drawers and home in general.
Dividers help maintain and contain the categories. Here are some of my favourite dividers that work in wardrobes and with clothes:
- Drawer dividers that create sections (bamboo)
- Opaque dividers that create sections
- Drawer organisers that create compartments
- Material drawer organisers
