If you have a reach-in closet, chances are you’ve struggled to store all that you need in such a small space. Because these closets usually clock in at about two feet deep, finding room to house everything necessary can feel near-impossible. So, when space is limited, it is important that you optimize the room that you do have. Read on, for how a custom closet can do that for your reach-in, to make your life just a little bit easier.
Shelving is an important aspect of closet organization. It helps keep things like shoes off the ground, and by attaching additional options such as drawers or sliding shelves, you can also create space for smaller accessories so they don’t get lost in the mass. In a reach-in closet where space is especially limited, you can use adjustable shelving as a way to divide your closet into sections, giving you different arrangement options in each area. You can also build shelves high with a smaller width, to give yourself that extra storage or organizational space without wasting unnecessary hanging room.
Reach-in closets rarely have room for clothing poles two deep, so you’ll want to instead stack them on top of each other, splitting the height of your closet in half to achieve double the hanging capabilities. Leave a smaller area next to, or on the opposite side of your closet with just one pole to accommodate items such as dresses or long coats which may have a lengthier reach than shirts or pants.
Pull out Bins
You don’t have to waste space in your reach-in installing large cabinets in your closet when an enclosed shelf with a pull-out bin works just as well! Bins can be used for anything you like, such as socks, belts, or gloves. These are especially great because they’re movable, so you can re-arrange or remove them whenever you want. Plus, they allow you to bring a little color or pattern to your closet, which can help brighten-up the small confined space of a reach-in.
