Closet clutter happens in even the largest walk-ins. And sometimes, the larger the closet, the bigger the mess. At Camelot Homes we know you want your walk-in closet to have the same luxurious feel as the rest of your custom home. But this luxury should never be at the expense of functionality.
Here are five top tips that will reduce clutter and add flair to your walk-in closet:
- Shelve Footwear
According to a study by DUO Boots, the average woman owns about 21 pairs of shoes. But we know you are not average, and it’s likely your walk-in closet is filled with an array of fabulous footwear. Special shelving to display and organize your shoe collection is essential for a walk-in closet. Shelves make it easy to showcase each pair and prevent shoes from piling on the floor. Store off-season items like boots in see-through, lidded containers to keep them dust-free.
- Designate Accessory Drawers
A tangle of ties, belts, and scarves is no way to treat your favorite accessories. A custom closet organization system should include special drawers designated for these items. Necktie hangers for him offer one solution. Also consider wide, shallow drawers for belts, scarves and jewelry.
- Use Storage Baskets
The modern storage basket makes organization quick and easy. Look to stylish canvas cubes that are ideal for items like socks and the overflow of a T-shirt collection. Do you have a few cooler-weather sweaters you wear only a few times a year? Store them neatly in a linen storage cube that has a lid, making it easy to stack other items on top, further maximizing the space.
- Maximize Corners
Don’t waste corner space in your custom, walk-in closet — think carousel-style storage to maximize this space. A closet corner carousel functions similar to the lazy-Susan-style cabinet often installed in kitchens. The corner carousel for closets rotates 360-degrees with hanging space for shirts, dresses, and other clothing. This is smart, simple, and helps free up space for custom drawers and shelves.
- Combine Flair & Functionality
A dressing bench in the walk-in closet is a luxury must-have. Why not combine luxury with functionality? Add seating that includes storage in the form of drawers or shelves, or a dressing bench with a seat that lifts to reveal interior storage for extra bed linens or pillows.
