Everyone, at one time or another, has felt the need to try and get their closet in order – but how do you know where to start?

A lot of people turn to closet organizer systems to help get things under control, and it usually helps! But there’s so many options and so many things to look for, how do you know where to start?

Everyone’s closet storage needs are different, but with a little planning, you can get a better idea of what to look for, and how it can improve your home storage.


Closet Storage System Design Tips


Start by measuring your closet

The best way to figure out what you need in a closet system is to figure out how big your current closet is. Knowing the space you have to work with is the best way to start planning a layout, figuring out what you have the room for, and maybe starting to consider donating some of the stuff you don’t want to move into your new storage. (Maybe.)


Prioritize your storage needs

From there, figure out what you need to store the most of, and how you’re going to store it. Do you have a lot of hangable clothing that needs a closet rail? Will a lot of smaller pieces, shoes, or accessories need to go into a closet organizer? Do you need more shelf space on the back wall for stuff that doesn’t get hung up? Ask yourself these questions first before you get started.


Rotate in seasonal-appropriate clothing

Even if you don’t have a lot of stuff to donate, you may have things that don’t need to be taking up closet space right now since they’re too warm/breezy to be worn in the current weather. These could easily be bagged up and kept in the attic or moved into a different bedroom dresser for storage until you need them.


Figure out if modifications need to be made to your closet

A lot of times, closet storage involves a little more work than just hanging up your new clothes. If you’re installing closet shelving, for example, now is the time to measure, cut, and hang your shelves before everything goes back into the closet. Corner shelving should be installed at this time as well, to make sure you don’t have to work around everything else.


Keep the doors useful

Closet doors are a balancing act – they can be useful for storage, but you need to make sure you can still open them and access everything inside. Use lighter, smaller over the door closet storage to organize smaller things like shoes or accessories, but make sure they don’t stop you from being able to open the door all the way or access anything else hanging up inside.


Stay flexible

As always, the final tip is to stay flexible when it comes to design. Your closet needs will change over time, which means your new storage may not be permanent – make sure to be ready to move, remove, or add more storage as needed.

After taking these steps, you should have a much better idea of what your closet needs – and how to get there!
