Organize your handbags
It's important to store your handbags in a way that's orderly and that keeps them protected from damage. Afterall, a clean, well-kept handbag is an important key to a good outfit and looking put-together! Line up your handbags on shelves or hang them up in a way that doesn't damage them. Here are our tricks!
Arrange on shelves
Built-in or tall shelving units give plenty of room to arrange your handbags! They look great facing forward in full view, or angled a little. Try grouping them by color for visual continuity. You can even layer them a bit! White wood or glass shelves are excellent because they are a blank, neutral canvas, making the bags pop.
Use a bookcase
Try a beautiful bookcase in place of built-in shelving! One freestanding bookcase (if it's large) is usually enough to hold all of one's handbag collection. To maximize the available shelf space, line your handbags next to each other with their sides facing you - it looks neat and you can still see all the handbags in your collection.
Cubbies are nice because they create a single spot for each of your bags, keeping them well-protected and easy to access. If you have the room for them, cubbies are an excellent choice for storing your bags! Larger cubbie spaces can each hold a few handbags.
Handbags can be hung up if done correctly - you need the proper type of hooks so that the handles don't get crunched up and become deformed with time. For the same reason, make sure the handbags are spaced far enough apart from each other. There are special hooks for handbags that can be hung on a closet rod, or try hooks that attach under a shelf.
Hang on wall
Hanging your handbags on a wall creates a decorative display! If you hang them up, be careful to choose hooks or knobs that allow for proper hanging of the handles and enough projection from the wall to give room to the purse's body. You could try wall shelves instead of hooks, which make a lovely little display of pretty purses.
Slots for clutches
Being small and envelop-shaped, clutches can get easily disorganized! Keep them upright and orderly by creating perfect slots for them - with plastic cubbies, plastic magazine holders from the office supply store, or even try a lid rack from the kitchen! We love how clutches look all neatly lined up.
Make a display
You can create a really pretty bookshelf display with your handbags! Just arrange them with a mixture of fashion books, shoes, sunglasses, and your favorite trinkets for a layered effect. A glimmering gold bookshelf has a super luxurious feel.
