Building a new walk-in closet organizer in a bedroom or adding a new reach-in closet to an ordinary room is a valuable upgrade. A closet cabinet must be durable, adaptable and convenient to use. Most walk-in closets are typically for modern homes where many buyers are looking for good-sized closets. A closet cabinet can be built to fit a variety of spaces and accommodate existing windows and doors.
Depending on the extent of the project a closet may include new flooring, lighting and paint. The more complicated the design and the more new construction is needed, the more expensive it will be. Here are a handful of closet organizer ideas that can improve your function, regardless of its size. Before we get started, here are some tips about how you can use the space:
- Chair – for putting on socks and shoes. Under-window seating will work perfectly fine.
- Mirror – you want to be able to look at yourself in the mirror? Make sure to place it at least three feet away, and make sure it’s not in a place that can be blocked.
- Iron – if you intend to iron your clothes where they are, a flip-down board will save you space.
6 Ideas to improve your closet organizer
- Vertical dimension in both directions. Take advantage of all your available spaces from the ceiling to the floor. Bins on high shelves, roll-out boxes that sit on the floor, even a third closet pole if your ceiling is high, are ideal to store items that you don’t use often. Less accessible places work great for off-season storage.
- Think about lighting. For a closet to be considered that works as it should, you need to see what’s inside. Natural light from skylights and windows are great options but remember that windows require storage space. You also need to think when sunlight is not available, it means that you’ll need artificial lighting. The important thing is that the artificial light should always be in front of you and the closet because you don’t want to cast a shadow on what you’re trying to see.
Know your wardrobe
- Wardrobe. More than any other space in your house, closets can be more efficient and work better if you know in advance precisely how you are going to use them. For example, Do you stack or hang your shirts up? Think about how you like to dress what you wear, and then design the space to serve you. Most used items around the eye level, less-used below and the least used high above.
- Focus on visibility design. Being able to see all your clothes gives you real choices when you get dressed. Take advantage of the many accessories available to keep your items organized. Shelves and drawers should be adjustable and movable from place to place within the closet.
- Don’t ignore the floor. You may be the only one to see it, but when it comes to the floor it matters because you will be standing on your feet every day there. For warmth underfoot carpet will be the best choice. However, remember that carpets in closets can be difficult to vacuum. In this case, we suggest you go with wood or vinyl.
- Watch out for mould and mildew. Closets need some airflow and dehumidification otherwise they become breeding for bold, mildew and even insects. A small dehumidifier is a way to keep things from getting musty, especially if the closet is in a basement.
Organization for multiple rooms in your home
Closet organizers aren’t just for bedrooms. Closet organizers systems are an excellent way to organize your whole house.
