Are you running out of space in your closet? Like many homeowners, it’s tricky to fit and organize all of your belongings. Luckily, the design experts at California Closets have been designing and organizing beautiful closet solutions for homeowners across the country for nearly four decades. Learn the tips from the pros on how to achieve closet organization here in Colorado Springs, Monument, the Tri-lakes area or Woodland Park.
Step 1: Clear Out the Clutter
Before you can organize anything, you need to get rid of what you don’t need. Clearing out clothes you never wear, accessories you have no use for, and ridding of random items will make more space (some you didn’t even know you had). Donate your items to friends or to Goodwill, and you’ll feel less stressed.
Step 2: Imagine What Kind of Closet You Want
When you close your eyes, what do you see? An expansive walk-in or an efficient reach-in closet? What accessories does your dream closet have? Take all of these into account and create a list of your ‘must-haves’, for example: a set of drawers, custom cabinetry or multiple hanging areas. Every space needs a different focused attention, and accessories to make it the most organized, functional space it can be. Here’s a breakdown of some of the different closets you may want to consider:
- Walk-In Closet – For premium closet organization, a walk-in closet is ideal. Large or small, it’s a room all its own. Designated shoe shelves and jewelry drawer inserts, as well as design details such as decorative hardware and glass shelves, personalize the space. A center island bench seating area and custom lighting makes the space feel like a personalized boutique, and deep drawers, multiple hanging areas, adjustable shelving, baskets and hampers create space-saving organization. To truly express yourself, a walk-in closet is a way to relax, have fun and have a designated space for all of your items, with plenty of breathing room.
- Reach-In Closet – To truly maximize closet space, a space-saving reach-in closet is the best solution. A custom-designed reach-in closet includes space-saving options, such as multiple hanging areas, adjustable shelving, drawers, baskets, and hampers. Pullout accessories such as belt, tie, scarf and valet rods maximize space and organization. A set of drawers adds storage capacity and puts everything within reach. Options for on- or off-the-floor construction are available to fit budget, aesthetic and storage needs.
- Wardrobe – To truly save space, try a closet that moves with you. A wardrobe is like a piece of custom-crafted furniture. The right finishes, decorative moldings and beautiful doors are designed to fit naturally into a space – and provide you with much-needed storage and functionality where none existed before. As with any other custom closet, features such as multiple hanging areas, adjustable shelving, drawers, baskets and hampers will tailor the system to your needs. Pullout accessories such as belt, tie, scarf and valet rods maximize space and organization. A set of drawers adds storage capacity and puts everything within reach. Wardrobe lighting increases functionality and dramatically enhances the aesthetic of a simple design. Options include LED, puck, and ribbon lights with multiple switching choices.
