The best closets are those that are designed around you and the way that you live. You can begin to organize your everyday life by turning a cluttered closet into a useful storage space. This will vary based on your options and the size of your available space.
The most common type of closet is the reach in closet that has a wooden rod and hangers, basically a plain Jane closet. This first step to organizing a closet of this type is to inventory the items that you want to store in the closet. One of the key things to consider is how much space you need for hanging clothes and how much room you need for clothes. In today’s wardrobes, double hanging sections are becoming more common. By adjusting a long hanging section to a double hanging section, you can often add three feet of extra space for drawers, cubbies, and other storage amenities.
The closet doors are one type of concern with reach in closets. Sliding doors will need to be carefully measured so that the drawers and pull out shelving clear the door when they are closed. Another downfall to shelving in a reach in closets is that there is limited space above the bulkhead of the closet door, and depending on the depth of the closet, you may be able to add hooks for robes and belt racks. When placing shelving, you need to be strategic.
In modern homes, the large master suite closets are large enough to house a chest of drawers and other furniture. This saves room in the master bedroom for other things. People commonly will remove furniture from the master bedroom and move it into the master closet. Modern closet systems in a large master suite are quite elaborate and will allow the homeowner to visualize all items stored in the closet at a glance. Closets have now become a room with a view. It is common to have islands in the center with a tilt out hamper, sliding belt racks and tie racks, jewelry drawers, show cubbies, show racks, and shelves, as well as other things. Some island can be designed to store luggage or even an ironing board. Today’s modern closet can house many amenities.
