If you’re looking to create the ideal custom closet for your new dream home, consider these 3 tips:
1. Start with your lifestyle needs and preferences
The first step in figuring out the right home organization strategy for your lifestyle is to consider your storage requirements.
What items do you need to store? Maybe you have a large shoe collection? Or, maybe you have lots of bulky storage equipment that needs a space? Consider how frequently you use your various items and which ought to be the most easily accessible.
Another key consideration is how you prefer to store your items. Do you want your items displayed or concealed? When it comes to your wardrobe, do you prefer, say, to fold your tops and stack them on shelves or hang them from multiple rows of hanging rods?
No two people are the same, so no two closets should be either. You want a closet that will work for your life.
2. Make the best use of your available space
Another key consideration when planning the perfect closet for your new dream home is to make the best use of all the available space you have.
Make sure to take advantage of the vertical space in your closet in order to optimize your storage. You might want to incorporate closet accessories, such as a pull-out valet rod or hamper, that can be tucked away inside the closet and then pulled out only when in use.
Adding extra shelves or drawers or even hanging rods for shorter items can be a great way to make sure you’re making full use of the limited closet space you may have.
3. A place for everything, and everything in its place
Perhaps the most important strategy for getting – and keeping – your home organized is to make sure there is a designated place for every item you want to keep. That way you’ll always know where things are supposed to go.
Your shelving can and ought to be size-adjusted to not only fit your space, but to fit your storage needs. You can add baskets to open shelves or dividers to drawers so that there is a clear storage spot for all of your belongings.
