Manufactured and Mobile Homes: How to Make the Most of Your Closet
If you live in a manufactured or mobile home in Florida, you may feel limited on the amount of closet space that you have available for your clothes and accessories. It's common for cramped quarters to become messy and cluttered due to a lack of space provided. If you want to make the most of your closet and allow it to be functional, there are a few steps to take to make it easy to find what you need each day while living in mobile homes.

Purge the Closet
One of the most effective ways to create more space in your small closet is to purge what you already own. There are likely several items, accessories, and garments that you rarely use, which makes it necessary to go through everything to discover what you want to toss and keep. Consider making a few piles for items that you want to donate, sell, or keep. Avoid keeping anything that hasn't been worn in the last year, which means that it's unlikely that you'll continue using it in the future. Purging the closet every six months will allow you to maintain the area to prevent it from becoming packed with items over time and can also help you to discover belongings that you've been looking for in manufactured homes.

Use Bins and Baskets
Make it a point to group like items and prevent loose garments or accessories from being stored in the closet with the use of bins and baskets. Consider placing the bins and baskets on a high shelf above the clothes that are hanging to have an area to place your scarves, hats, and blankets. Label each bin to ensure everything is easy to find and is placed in the right place after it's used. You can also store each pair of shoes in a clear container, which will allow you to stack the shoes and keep everything organized without putting them in a pile on the floor. Installing vertical shelves or a shoe holder on the door will also offer a place to keep the shoes neat and tidy.

Purchase Velvet Hangers
Velvet hangers are handy because they're thin, which can allow you to hang more clothing items on the rack. The velvet material on each hanger can also prevent the garments from sliding off and onto the floor, which can create a mess.

Organize According to Use
When organizing mobile homes in Florida with small closets, organize everything according to how much it's used. Shirts that are worn frequently should be placed on a lower rack where they're within reach. Suits or formal gowns can be placed higher up or in the back of the closet since they're not accessed as often.

Manufactured homes provide comfortable living spaces but are prone to becoming cluttered in the closets. By knowing how to organize the space and make it functional, you can have easier access to items you wear when getting ready each day.
