What kind of closet organizer do I need?

Before purchasing a closet organizer, look carefully at your current storage situation. What do you have the most of? What is currently causing the biggest mess? What items do you use most frequently? Look at the amount of items that you need to store, isolate problem areas, and then determine which items will need to be right at hand. This will help you decide what type of closet organizer you need and where it should go in your closet space.

Sometimes it can be more helpful to organize your closet in small stages, rather than doing it all at the same time. Doing bits and pieces of an organizational project can help you figure out how you use things over time, instead of doing everything at once, and figuring out that the system doesn’t work afterwards.

What are some common closet storage options?

Bins: Great for storing foldable items and random knick-knacks. Anything that can’t be hung, or might not have a good place on a shelf or hook, can be organized and stored into a bin for easy access.

Shelving units: If you have the space, shelves are a great integrated closet storage option. Easy to set up shelving comes in a variety of materials — from wood, to wire, to metal, to plastic — all of which are great for spaces that might not have enough hanging or floor space.

Drawers: Plastic, wire or wooden drawers can be a great way to organize things even further. Portable drawer units can be wheeled into a closet to store things like towels, cleaning supplies and linens. Smaller drawer units can be used to store jewelry, tools or any other small household necessities.

Should I buy a closet system?

If you want something that is personally suited to your space and needs, custom closet systems are the way to go. A closet or storage professional will measure your room and add cabinets, drawers, clothing rods and built-in laundry hampers to ensure you have all you need. You'll want to save for this service, though — custom closets are much more expensive than stock shelving units or bins.
