Transitioning your entry closet from winter to summer involves organizing, decluttering, and storing items that are not needed for the warmer months. 

1. Declutter and Assess

  • Start by taking everything out of the closet. Sort through each item and decide if it's necessary for the summer season.
  • Donate or sell winter items that your family has outgrown or that you haven't worn in a while.
  • Check for any damaged or worn-out items and either repair them or discard them.

2. Clean and Prepare

  • Vacuum or sweep the closet to remove dust and debris.
  • Wipe down shelves, racks, and hooks with a damp cloth and mild cleaner.
  • Consider adding fresh shelf liners or drawer organizers to keep things tidy and protect your belongings.

3. Organize and Store

  • Store winter coats, boots, scarves, gloves, and other bulky items in storage bins or vacuum-sealed bags.
  • Label each container for easy identification when you need to retrieve these items later.
  • Utilize under-bed storage or a separate storage area for larger items like heavy coats or snow gear.

4. Bring in Summer Essentials

  • Retrieve your sandals, hats, coats and any other summer clothing from storage or other areas of your home.
  • Consider adding hooks or baskets for accessories like sunglasses, hats, and lightweight scarves.

5. Maximize Space and Functionality

  • Make use of vertical space with over-the-door organizers or additional shelving if needed.
  • Install hooks or pegs for frequently used items such as keys, bags, or umbrellas.
  • Keep a small container or basket near the door for items like sunscreen, bug spray, or reusable shopping bags.
By following these steps, you can efficiently transition your entry closet from winter to summer, creating a well-organized space that meets your needs for the warmer months.
