The search for useful, effective and reasonably priced closet organizing ideas seems to be never ending. The problem is that everybody keeps acquiring more and more stuff, and the more we accumulate, the less space we have available to accommodate new things. Therefore, in order to maintain some sense of order it is important to identify closet organizing ideas that can be readily implemented.
Effective Closet Organization
There are many different approaches to organizing a closet so as to get the most out of the available space. Since most people have more hanging clothes than folded clothing, and a significant portion of that hanging requirement is for shirts and blouses or slacks folded over a hanger, double or even triple hanging, if height permits, is an excellent way to multiply the useable space in a closet.
In the closet organizing systems we make at The Closet Works, our hanging sections have holes drilled the entire height of the section so that the hanging rods are fully adjustable and various garments can be grouped by height to maximize the space. We even have a pull down hanging rod device that can be installed at about 8 feet high so that you can use more of the height of the closet to increase hanging space even further, without making access to the clothes stored in the highest section uncomfortable or inconvenient.
Other closet organization ideas relate to specific accessories that we offer that can really impact the space yield in your closet. We have many different types of accessories that can really make your closet work overtime. These items include velvet and Lucite jewelry inserts, tilt out hampers with removable baskets and liners if desired, slide out baskets, custom sized drawers and drawer dividers that can be used to keep items in a drawer much more organized and neater. These dividers can be configured from front to back or side to side with any section width you desire. Egg crate style dividers are available as well.
Other useful closet organization ideas that can be fitted into our systems include pull out valet bars which are very useful when selecting an outfit or taking plastic off dry cleaning, slide out or wall mounted tie or belt racks, tie valet racks that can hold 160 ties in a 24” wide section, mirrors, counter tops (useful for folding garments or packing a suitcase), scarf storage racks, mirrors, fold out ironing boards (one model can even be mounted in a drawer), and many other useful, convenient and clever bits and pieces that can help you get the best possible storage capacity from your closet.
