How to Organise the Perfect Wardrobe + Win a Howards Storage World Voucher

A few months back, I posted some tips on how to declutter your home. Recently, I’ve spent a fair bit of time practicing what I preached; clearing out cupboards, drawers, bags and boxes.

Nothing gives me greater satisfaction that feeling organised – and giving clutter the boot certainly helped me achieve that indescribable moment of domestic bliss.

Howards Storage World Elegance Collection - The Life Creative

I also transformed my wardrobe with a little help from Howards Storage World’s brand new Elegance range – organising my clothing in a way that now makes sense and transforms the way I get ready in the morning (no more stressful searching for socks!).

This is a TLC Solution for Howards Storage World.

Howards Storage World Elegance Range - The Life Creative

I filmed a video with the team recently and got to witness the luxury of the Elegance range up-close, but getting to put it in my own space at home really reinforced the quality of the pieces and how they can truly reinvent your wardrobe for the better.

The Elegance range contains premium storage boxes, totes, shoe boxes and an array of dreamy hangers – made from both timber and chrome, plus double sided printable tags so you can label your garments. This is a collection that, in true Howards style, merges form and function; it looks amazing and it works incredibly well (not to mention giving your precious clothing the home it deserves!).

My Tips on Organising the Perfect Wardrobe

  1. Give clothes room to breathe and store your high-end pieces on quality hangers. Hangers with felt ends are great and won’t tear clothing.
  2. Store special occasion pieces away in boxes with lids. Not only does it prevent dust from getting in, but it ensures these pieces don’t take up essential everyday wardrobe space.
  3. For clothing you don’t hang – like tees, shorts, belts and more – consider storing these in totes on shelves – allowing for easy access when they’re needed.
  4. Store shoes in stackable boxes so they don’t get squashed. Howards’ acrylic boxes are ideal for this; you can see the shoes and they feature holes for ventilation.
  5. Create zones in your wardrobe; hung items, tote items, stored shoes and special occasion pieces. This makes getting ready almost like a fun production line!

    I heart the premium acrylic shoeboxes! Shoes are definitely a pain to organise, especially because I want to display them AND stack them. I didn’t think you could have it both ways until now!

  • The premium storage totes are just gorgeous and this is a method of storage that I’m only just getting into. So far we’re using this type of thing in my son’s room and there is definitely capacity to extend it to other areas of the house.

  • Kavi

    Those storage totes with the chrome eyelets are amazing. I can already visualise them fitting right in the high shelves of my new white and grey wardrobe.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the Elegance Premium Storage Boxes as I love boxes with lids to stop dust collecting, I love the design and this would be just perfect to store some of my precious wardrobe items in 🙂

  • Mary Hand

    My favourite is the coat hanger with the non slip inserts and bar . I’m always needing to dry work t-shirts without leaving a crease across the chest so to slip them onto these would solve that problem. That said, the shoe boxes are awesome!

  • Janet Feldman

    Hi! Love your Blog and Instagram! I also love the HSW Elegance large totes! They’d look perfect in my monochrome apartment for kids toys and bits and pieces!!

  • Tracee

    Loving all the Elegance range but what an improvement it would be to have coat hangers with those special slots so strappy tops & dresses don’t fall off & end up a crumbled heap on the floor!

  • sapna

    Oval Party Drinks Tub – Stainless Steel is my favourite. As summers are arriving soon ,this drink tub would be the best thing to have in a party…

  • Rebecca

    Definitely the storage totes. I am about to move into a new house and I think my wardrobe will be full of cardboard boxes for a while! These totes would be the perfect way to begin organising everything!

  • Rhonda Lockery

    I love the Elegance clear shoe boxes when you have shoes you love & want to protect you need a little elegance

  • amanda

    totally love the Elegance storage totes with the chrome handles. These would be perfect to store things in almost every room of my house, but at the moment my studio office is in desperate need of these to hold all my art supplies. The medium size totes for my vast collection of paints and pencils, and the large for my art books and sketch pads. Yes please!

  • Carla

    Elegance clear shoe boxes… Because I like my shoes to be organised but I need to see them too!

  • Adjustable pants hangers are my favourite in the wardrobe – they keep my pants uncreased, ready to go, and instantly visible. Being adjustable also lets me decide whether I want my pants hung by their legs or their waistband – it varies, depending on the fabric.

  • Riana

    The storage totes! I’ve just had a baby and I’m in between sizes at the moment, so I’ve an excess of things I need to organise until they fit again!

  • Kasey

    Your blog post totally inspired me and I’ve been cleaned, organised and reinvented my wardrobe!!! ahhh the satisfaction I feel now looking at all my skirts lined up together, all the dresses in the one spot and all the shoes neatly in the shoe rack! Now I need to tackle the dreaded top of the wardrobe, you know…. where everything has been flung out of reach? well the Elegance Premium storage totes would rock this space!!! Neatly placed side by side filled with all the random bits and pieces they’d finish off the job….think….organised, precision, wardrobe elegance 🙂

  • Mel

    Clear shoe boxes; the centre piece of my shoe shrine

    • Mel

      All my favourites on display and protected.

  • Laura

    I know this would bore some people but I love the hangers with the notched shoulders. The lack of clothes slipping off hangers gets me excited!
