For most of us, our closet is one of the first things we see in the morning so why shouldn't it be just as beautiful as the rest of our home? Switching between seasons and juggling both work and casual clothes can call for a messy situation. When it comes to storage solutions, it's always helpful to follow the pros. Home organizer, Wendy Silberstein of, The Aesthetic Organizer, is sharing her favorite accessories from The Laundress and how she uses them to organize client closets.
If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that The Laundress offers some of my favorite products for organization and garment care. Their commitment to quality and gorgeous packaging makes my job easier. Their products are equal parts stylish and useful in neutral tones and high-quality fabrics that fit seamlessly into any design. The Laundress team believes that our homes should be filled with items that are both useful and beautiful.
In my own home, I use a number of their products, but today I’m sharing specifically about a few of their storage solutions that I employ in my closet and those of my clients.
The Laundress offers these handy storage boxes in a variety of sizes, in both black and white, and even a canvas option if you prefer that over fabric. I love to fill these with accessories that are difficult to keep tidy if not contained. The clean lines on these boxes make them easy to stack or just place on shelves to maintain a clean and organized appearance even with tons of color and texture hidden inside.
The cubes have handles on the front so you can easily pull them down from shelves to inventory your items. They also have little placards on the front so that you can label each box according to what is stored inside. These boxes are great for all accessories, but I especially love them for hats and handbags. These items can be such a pain to store because of the different shapes, but it’s important to keep them safe from pests, dust, and moisture. I love having several sizes of these on hand to store those goods safely and beautifully.
Hanging Closet Organizer
For the longevity of your garments, some things just need to be folded. Tiered storage like this option from The Laundress gives you the accessibility and organization of a closet without ruining your clothing. These are so handy for so many things, but I especially love them for sweaters. Over time, hanging can cause natural fiber sweaters to lose their shape, but storing them in tiered hanging storage creates visibility and protects their quality.
I have had many systems like this one in the past and always found them to be too flimsy under the weight of heavy sweaters, but this one by The Laundress is made of reinforced cotton and holds up well under pressure.
Hanging Storage Bag
These hanging storage bags are obviously great for suits and occasional wear, but I also love them for off-season items. This is especially helpful if you live in a home or apartment with minimal storage. It’s such a great solution for keeping something in your closet, but tucked away and protected from bugs and the elements.
If you travel for work regularly and need to protect your clothing in your car and in hotels, these are also a great option for you. I especially love the interior rod that literally makes this hanging bag like a mini closet. No more garment hangers falling through the top hole and into the bottom of the bag. This keeps everything neat, upright, and ready for wear.
Pro Tip: for all those frequent travelers out there, be sure to snag one of The Laundress’ zipper laundry bags as well.
If you ever wondered how a professional organizer deals with closet clutter, this sums it up: good products. I base my personal storage systems and those of my clients around solutions made from high-quality products and with good design in mind. For more aesthetic organizing solutions, visit my blog.
