While walk-in closets are the norm these days in home construction, don’t think that reach-ins are a thing of the past. Whether it’s by choice or by necessity, reach-in closets can still serve a fully functional role in today’s home environment — and just because you don’t have the same amount of space as a walk-in closet doesn’t mean that it can’t be an organized, effective storage area. The key is just ensuring that you’re maximizing the space as best as you can. Here’s a look at some tips on how to do it:
Consider Various Hanging Areas
Your reach-in closet will likely have a hanging area for your clothes. But if you’re going to be hanging different types of clothes (i.e., jackets, shirts, pants, dresses, etc.), be sure to include hanging areas for long and medium length clothing. This can help to better maximize storage space and enhance closet organization.
Include a Dresser
Adding a small dresser to your closet allows you to maximize space without really altering the overall shape or appearance of the closet. They’re essential for storing the clothes that you don’t necessarily want on display, and they help free up more space on the hanging rods for other articles of clothing. Dressers also help take advantage of one of the most underutilized areas of the reach-in closet — the floor.
We always suggest installing adjustable shelving in any reach-in closet. Adjustable shelving can help store miscellaneous belongings, board games, rarely used accessories and more items that might not necessarily have a place elsewhere in the home. Adjustable shelving fits easily, can be hung in a variety of ways to seamlessly provide a versatile solution for any reach-in closet.
Utilize the Doors
