Many couples share a closet in their bedroom. This may be a walk-in closet or a reach-in closet, depending on the home’s design. In either case, sharing a closet requires compromise and communication with your partner. Here are some of my tops tips for sharing a closet with someone else:
1. Separate Sections
Separate the closet into sections for each person. For example, one person may have the left side and the other has the right side of the closet.
Use labeled shelving or containers so that both people know where items belong. This will make it easier to find and put away clothing.
3. Color Code
Use color coding to help differentiate which containers belong to each person. For example, put one person’s belongings in blue boxes, baskets or bins, and put the other’s in red boxes, baskets or bins.
4. Add Closet Rod Dividers
Place closet rod dividers like these on the closet rod to separate sections.
5. Compromise with Each Other
You should both make an agreement to keep your belongings to your section of the closet.
6. Respect Each Other’s Space
Agree to not touch the other person’s side of the closet without their permission, even if you’re just tidying up.
7. Maintain Organization Together
Regularly sort, organize and purge this closet, once or twice a year. Do this together, so that the two of you can discuss what is working and rearrange things as needed.
