Closet Organizers > Maximizing Closet Storage

cluttered closet No matter how big your closet is, chances are it does not seem big enough.  Fortunately, you can maximize your closet space with closet organizers.  In fact, with the right closet organizer, you may even be able to double or triple your storage space.

More than 2,000 closet-organization companies are out there, eager to help you organize your shirts, shoes, and sweaters.  If you decide to hire a professional, the National Association of Professional Organizers can help you find someone in your area.  Keep in mind that the average custom closet costs from $3,000 to $5,000.

For a less expensive option, you can install your own closet organizing system from an off-the-shelf kit bought at a home improvement store.

Types of Closet Organizers

Whether you have a large walk-in closet or a smaller reach-in closet, you can find a closet organizer that will help you get organized and increase your storage space.  Closet organizers are typically either wood or wire, and are easy for a do-it-yourselfer to install.  Wooden closet organizers look more elegant, but wire organizers tend to be more flexible and affordable.  They also offer more ventilation for your clothes.

Components of a Closet Organizer

Before selecting your closet organizer components, you should think about what kind of clothes you have and how you want to store them:  Do you prefer your pants to be hung or folded?  Do you have a lot of scarves or purses you need to store?  Do you want a space for storing seasonal clothing?  You want to match your organizer system as much as possible to the types of clothing and accessories you own.  If you can't find a closet organizer kit that meets your needs, you can buy the components you want individually and create your own perfect space!
