Amy Jane Thomas gives insight on how to avoid “closet chaos” in her book Closet Secrets

For most people “closet chaos” is something that is experienced every day. Spending too much time looking for something to wear or only finding half an outfit and the other is too wrinkled to wear can be very frustrating. Amy Jane Thomas has a solution. In her book, Closet Secrets - Essential Advice for Expertly Designing Your Closet or Dressing Room, she outlines tips that can help in optimizing closet space. She points out that the home has become a sanctuary, a place that when you walk into it, you want to find what she calls “visual peace.”




Closet Secrets is THE book to read before starting a closet, dressing room, or other storage projects. Even for those who have a professional working on the designs, the essential advice in this book will arm the reader with a checklist of criteria to make sure the design is workable, comfortable, optimal for the desired space, as well as fitting the wardrobe and lifestyle.




The author covers closet organization well, mainly dwells on topics often overlooked by many, like strategic placement and ease of maintenance. On the closet design and space optimization, she gives the reader comprehensive and concise information offering enough clear data without getting bogged down in technical jargon. In a nutshell, she believes that each place is different, as well as the people who inhabit it.


While emphasizing the need to unclutter, the author points out that big does not always equal organized and comfortable, and creating a comfortable optimized space begins at the planning stage. The ideas given in this book are aimed towards a more maximalist attitude without going overboard.




In his review, Maan Aljasser,the founder of Creative Closets, Saudi Arabia, described the author as an authority on home storage and organization, recommending the book to anyone seeking advice on the matter – designers, consumers, and manufacturers alike.
