Close your eyes for a second and imagine this. You open your closet doors. You walk into a perfectly pristine space. It’s light, bright, and airy. Articles of clothing are lined up neatly in perfect rows on custom shelving. A generously-sized shoe rack houses your favorite pumps or your collection of brightly colored sneakers. If you’re someone who gives into a little retail therapy every now and then, you probably wouldn’t mind calling this place a “home away from home” (that just so happens to be in your home!).  

Now open your eyes. The closet you see at home is not likely the one you just dreamed about. However, turning that dream into a reality is not entirely impossible – and doesn’t necessarily need to come with a hefty price tag either. YP℠ is here to help you get started. And once we’re done, we’re certain you’ll end up with a dream closet that would even make Marie Kondo, author of New York Times Bestseller, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing,” quite proud. After all, decluttering means getting rid of the things that don’t bring you joy – and your joy is the ultimate goal here.

Do your shoes need a little TLC? Then look to California Closets in Los Angeles, where shoe storage (and so much more) comes in all shapes and sizes – from flat shelves for your flat-soled footwear and angled shelves for anything sporting a heel. They even have space-saving pull-out options that make storage a snap, even in smaller spaces.

Now if you’re having a hankering for a proper DIY project, check out your local home improvement or hardware store (you can locate the nearest one on YP) to find all sorts of building and storage materials to help you transform either a drab closet or a really tiny storage space into a veritable wardrobe wonderland. All you need is a little creativity, ingenuity, a few wall cubbies, some hanging rods, new light fixtures, and a free weekend to get the job done – and enjoy a true sense of accomplishment.

In Atlanta, where I’m based, locally owned and operated Artisan Custom Closets is a popular choice. They’ve been in business for 35 years and offer custom-built storage systems to organize your belongings neatly. They’ll also make sure it matches your home’s decor. Plus, they are committed to being green and using environmentally friendly options whenever possible.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your spring cleaning started today, with the help of tips and tricks on yp.com from spring cleaning experts across the country – like using a house-hunting website for design inspiration or adding large mirrors to closet doors to make a small space look larger and brighter.
