When creating a custom closet, one of the key goals is to make the most of your space. Here are a few ways in which to accomplish this.
Utilize The Vertical Space
One way to make sure you’re getting the most out of your closet is to utilize the space from floor to ceiling. There are different ways you can make use of this vertical space depending on what you need stored. Of course the main purpose of most bedroom closets is to be a home for one’s wardrobe, so it only makes sense to use your clothing inventory to dictate much of your design.
One method to get more space out of your closet is to use a combination of single and double-hang sections. The amount of double-hang space in your closet will depend on your personal clothing collection, but the multi-level hanger rods are ideal for pants, shirts, and jackets. If you have a lot of dresses, skirts, and long coats, you will want to utilize more single-hang closet space.
Another good way to utilize all your vertical space is to incorporate a shelving system. Shelves work well for folded clothes, as well as jewelry boxes and smaller trinkets. Store your frequently used items and things you want visible on the lower shelves, and store the more seasonal items and those you don’t access often on the higher shelves. Keeping a compact folding stepladder in your closet is a good idea for when you do need to reach those high-up spots.
Use Storage Containers
Another way to make the most of your closet space is to use storage containers. There are a number of different ways you can use these containers, as well as various styles you can choose from. Some Philadelphia and New Jersey homeowners opt for baskets while others like the canvas box style. Containers can be placed on the shelves to keep your various accessories and belongings together and neatly organized. Like with seasonal clothing, storing the accessories and things you don’t use often on high up shelves is a good placement method. It’s common to include in a custom closet design a shelf above the clothing hanger rods where one can store these kinds of things.
