In many closets, storage boxes and bins are used to store extra clothing, seasonal decorations, and small items. They are often placed on the top shelf over a hanging area, or at the bottom of a closet near boots and shoes.
While storage boxes can be great accessories, they can also be a detriment to your closet organization endeavors. It not unusual to forget where items are stored if they are out of sight, or what is stored within a box. This can lead to multiple purchases of the same item and closet clutter. When tackling closet storage, consider the following organization techniques to maximize space.
Ottomans and Custom Benches
Ottomans with hidden storage compartments and custom closet benches are great closet organization options. You can store items while using the furniture as seating when getting dressed, putting on shoes, or applying makeup. Using multifunctional furniture allows you to reorganize your closet, maximize space, and create additional functionality.
Consider Floor Space
Cubby-style shelves and drawers can be placed along the bottom of your closets to help give you structure when organizing and sorting items. This structure helps you divide up your closet and creates a specific zone for all of your items. Upgrading to high-quality storage systems is a great way to make you excited to use your closet again! If you have items that might become damaged, such as vintage clothing or collectibles, consider using glass doors or inserts. Then you can keep items protected and find what you need immediately. A home storage manufacturer such as Closet & Storage Concepts Phoenix can help redesign your closet to create more storage.
Use Your Closet Door For Storage
One of the biggest obstacles to overcome when organizing a closet is creating more space without tearing down walls to increase a closet’s square footage. One solution to maximize space can be to use the closet door to store items. Over-the-door closet storage products can be helpful for small closets. Free up closet floor space with an over-the-door hang shoe system or use the pouches to store small accessories like belts and jewelry.
