That old phrase “New Year; New You” tends to inspire its fair share of resolutions—from going to the gym to learning an instrument. But what happens when you apply it to your closet? Believe it or not, a professional closet makeover can do wonders for your daily life, your state of mind, and more. Here’s why a closet makeover is the New Year’s gift that keeps on giving:

The Case for Space:  Right up front, a professional closet makeover has the huge benefit of helping you get the most out of your space. It can reveal space you didn’t know you had and even add space by utilizing awkward corners and nooks. The best part? More space doesn’t just mean more room for clothes—it also makes it easier to start (and keep) organizational habits.

The Most Fun Way to Face the Day:  Sure, a cup of coffee will rev you up for the day ahead—but so will an organized closet. For proof, imagine trading your messy closet for a space that’s bright, uncluttered, and tailored to your personal style. Instead of hunting for that elusive favorite shirt or scrambling for a matching outfit, you can easily pick from a collection of clothes you actually want to wear. Sounds like something worth getting out of bed for, right?

Take Stock and Stock Up:  Out with the old and in with the new! There’s nothing like a professional closet makeover to help you get a good sense of your inventory. Discovering that there are items you don’t wear or clothes that don’t enhance your amazing features is a great reason to donate to a local charity. Realizing that you have very few blue tops—even though it’s one of your favorite colors—is a great reason to shop with purpose.

Mix and Match a New Look:  If you’ve been feeling like your style needs an upgrade, don’t worry about the cost of a whole new wardrobe. Think of an organized closet as combination blank canvas/fashion consultant that can help you build a new look for the new year. Thanks to organizational tools like jewelry trays, valet rods, and even closet islands, it will be easy to mix and match pieces together in combinations that you wouldn’t normally try. You can also arrange your clothes by color for a more cheerful and efficient space. A closet makeover is just the inspiration you need for a confidence boost and your own version of a movie makeover montage (soundtrack not included).
