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.
