Today we’re going to paraphrase those ubiquitous credit card ads and ask: What’s in YOUR closet?
What if we took a peek inside? Would we find a well-organized collection of clothes, or a giant garment pile that seems to swallow up shirts and sweaters?
Sometimes, the difference between the two can come down to just three words: custom closet design.
By embracing some of these design elements in your closet, you can maximize the efficiency of your space and keep track of all of your favorite things to wear.
1. An open closet
Unless you’re Clark Kent, who puts on his Superman costume inside a phonebooth, you’re probably not a fan of getting changed in small spaces.
That’s where an open closet concept can help, allowing you to get dressed quickly and easily, with everything you need to prepare for the day at your fingertips.
2. Divided shelves
Keep folded articles of clothing such as sweaters and jeans organized and in neat stacks by using pull-out shelves with dividers.
3. Valet rods
Hiring a valet might not be in your budget, but valet rods offer a simple, affordable way to add hanging space to your closet. Use them to hold dry cleaning or to keep your wardrobe sorted.
4. Custom shoe racks
Here’s a custom closet design trick that will keep your shoe collection in plain sight. With slanted shoe racks, you’ll be able to organize your footwear – heels with heels, sneakers with sneakers, etc. – and keep things from getting lost.
5. Tiered clothing rods
Double the hanging space in your closet by setting up tiered clothing rods. This lets you group items together, with long skirts and dresses up high, and shirts and blouses down below.
6. Belt and tie racks
Remember that tie you really liked, the one you wore for job interviews, and to important meetings? It vanished into your closet, and when you found it again, it was wrinkled, out-of-style and nearly unwearable.
But with a belt/tie/scarf rack, you can prevent that kind of situation and keep track of your cherished accessories by hanging them in the same spot.
7. Jewelry drawers
Installing a few custom jewelry drawers lets you keep your bracelets, rings, earrings, watches, necklaces, etc. in a safe place, free from getting scratched or tangled.
8. Laundry day made easier
Tired of dirty clothing ending up on the floor of your closet? Installing pull-out, tilt-out hampers gives you a quicker way to dispose of dirty clothes at the end of the day, and makes things easier when it comes to sorting and washing clothes on laundry day.
