Closet Storage Ideas for Your New Home
Designing Closet Space For Maximum Organization!
Whether you're working to design your new home, or looking to organize your existing home, you're going to love these closet ideas!
A closet storage system doesn't have to be big or elaborate.
Even a couple of carefully placed shelves and multiple height rods can make a huge difference!
On a budget? Many of these ideas can be duplicated with ventilated wire shelving in place of custom built and painted wood shelving.
The contrasting color on the closet walls is a nice touch too!
In a larger closet, a full "built in bookcase" idea can work very well.
It's probably better to use spacious shelves and organize smaller items in baskets or labeled bins that sit on the shelves.
These shelves will hold anything from piles of jeans to folded sweaters.
With a little higher budget available, the sky is the limit. Talk with your builder - we schedule a meeting directly with the trim carpenter to discuss your storage ideas.
Custom built drawers and cabinetry are just some of the options. Drawers are more complicated to build, with more moving parts, so be ready to up the price tag if you'd like to include some custom drawers.
Bring lots of pictures of what you have in mind!
A window in a closet can be a nice feature - the natural light can make a big difference.
Storage systems can be planned right around the window - whether shelving or hanging rods.
A built in bench or seating area is another attractive option - what a great place to put on your shoes!
Have a large shoe collection? The built in shoe rack on the left is sure to hold them!
This closet is "His and Hers" - an extra large closet, it's divided in the center, with wrap around shelving and multi-height hanging rods.
Even a secondary closet can stay more organized with a stack of built in shelves.
A long closet can be divided in the center - multi height hanging rods and shelves on one side, a floor to ceiling stack of shelves in the center, and a full height hanging rod on the other side.
Talk to your new home builder about what you have in mind!
Some builders can even customize your closet space further by changing the layout and the wall structure, to incorporate the kind of storage you have in mind.
A little planning ahead can make organizing your new home so much easier!
