I have always loved organizing in my home but New York apartments also take the need for organizational expertise to a whole new level. When you live in a New York studio apartment you need to ensure every single inch of your space is maximized. And for me – that especially rings true for my closets. When I recently moved apartments, I worked with Neat Method to experience their professional organizational skills first hand.
Neat Method Review: What Is Neat Method?
Neat Method is the largest luxury home organizing company with professional organizers across the US and Canada. They provide customized storage solutions for just about any space you need made less chaotic and more functional.
Neat Method handles home organization, moving and re-locating and virtual organization for their clientele and they have a network that spans just about anywhere you’re located here in the States. While I always enjoy the challenge presented by limited storage space, what I loved about working with Neat Method was that my organizer Corrin brought so many solutions I had never thought of before to my space look neat yet also be functional for my personal needs and habits.
Even if you are the neatest of people, I think we can all recognize and appreciate that life gets hectic and sometimes calling in professionals is in our best interest. The relief I felt of having a pro offer new ideas on how to make my closet as functional as possible was overwhelming.
After you do an initial consultation with your professional organizer, the Neat Method will design a customized solution for the space you’re working on. Corrin worked with some of the storage solutions I already owned and then also made recommendations on those my closet could benefit from.
My apartment has two closets that I tackled with the Neat Method.
They are both used for clothing but space remains tight.
I loved so many of the solutions that Corrin proposed not only because they were right for my needs and my lifestyle but also that they were sustainable to upkeep and able to be updated per season. Corrin set me up for success when it comes to maintaining an organized home – something I think everyone can appreciate. I also really liked that the Neat Method’s style of organizing is very refined (unlike The Home Edit who makes everything bright + color coordinated as that’s not my personal taste!) I think the style is well reflected in the new collection of products they recently released (I have several of their items book marked for my kitchen in fact!)
Corin had a real eye for detail and she asked thoughtful questions throughout the process. She came so prepared with solutions at the ready to install day-of and gave me some helpful follow ups to implement should I want them (labeling my shoe types, etc.)

Neat Method Tips For Organizing Your Closet
Get the right hangers.
Use your hangers properly.
Have your hangers facing you.
Fold your Sweaters and Denim.
Organize your closet seasonally.
Organize your clothing by type and coordinate by color.
Organize your shoe boxes by type of shoe.
Don’t store your handbags and clutches in dustbags.
If you’re in a small space like I am, you can use a coat rack of closet overflow. But instead of just using it for coats (as I used to), instead treat the coat rack like what you may see in an upscale boutique. Make selects from your closet in the same color range and add them to the coat rack so it is more visually appealing.
Use baskets to keep Similar things together.
I have limited shelf space and my closets don’t accommodate over the door shoe organizers as I’ve used in the past, so instead The Neat Method utilized baskets to keep similar items like sneakers or hats together and available for easy access.
