Jordan: There are so many things to pay attention to as your baby becomes a toddler. Organization and where to store things should not have to be one of them. Kate Monaghan from Classy Closets is here to make storage a breeze. Kate, when it comes to a baby’s closet, what sort of features do we need to talk about?
Kate: Well, basically, if you look at the graphics here, this is what I call a triple hang. So, baby clothes are really small.
Jordan: Really small.
Kate: Right? So, we usually do a triple hang. We do some drawers for their smaller stuff. I usually put a laminate countertop on top for the baby oils and stuff, so that it’s durable, so it doesn’t stain.
Jordan: And easy to clean.
Kate: Easy to clean. I like a stack of shelves, because kids basically. For shoes, you know, their books, all the kinds of things that build up as the baby gets a little older. And sometimes I’ll put a basket in so it’s a laundry hamper, but it’s not behind a hamper door so that air can circulate ’cause baby clothes stink basically.
Jordan: Baby clothes are stinky.
Kate: And then that basket down the road can be used for their toys, you know, so it’s dual-purpose, or as they get older, for their sports gear.
Kate: You know, like their cleats and whatnot.
Jordan: So it’s definitely all about maximizing the space, especially with that triple hang that we see down the side.
Jordan: As the clothes are so tiny, you don’t wanna have just two racks with a lot of open space in the middle.
Kate: Exactly, wasted space. But, and one of the benefits is, as the toddler starts to walk, they can pick out their own clothes, right? So it gives them a little bit of independence. More importantly, they can put their clothes back. They have no excuse ’cause they can reach it, right? So it’s a good way to train kids. But as they get a little older then, you can pop out this middle shelf and this middle rod, move this one up, and you have a true double-hang, right?
Jordan: So once they’re old enough and we no longer need the third rack.
Kate: That’s right, you can modify it, right? You could even move a shelf up and have a long hang if you wanted, or two shelves and hanging, you know. So that for summer dresses, if it’s a girl or what have you. So it’s very flexible.
