When it comes to having cabinets in a home, it’s not necessarily the number of cabinets you have, but the amount of efficiency you get from the cabinets you own. With a good storage strategy, the space you have is maximized and all of your items are easily accessible. Closet organizers are the perfect accessories to turn any simple closet into an efficient storage space.
If you want your closet to get organized quickly, then buying a standard closet organization system is the way to go. There are many accessories available ranging from simple units like wire baskets and plastic containers to some advanced designs like a sliding shelf or hidden vanity. The simplest closet organizing units are easy to install because little to no DIY work is required. More advanced units will require a bit of work, but these units have been designed with users in mind, so most of the work that needs to be done to install them is not too difficult. If DIY isn’t your thing, then most stores that sell closet organizer systems offer installation service.
Remember to consider what you want to store in a particular closet before rushing out to shop for closet organizing accessories. Consider the length of the hanging clothes to see if you can implement a multi-tiered clothes hanger. If long clothes are involved, a shorter bottom hanger may be needed to make room for the clothes hanging from the top. Calculate how many feet of hanging bars or shelving you will need. Keep in mind that drawers can be expensive, so you have to decide if an open shelf is acceptable or if a drawer is really needed.
In addition to shopping for closet accessories that maximize storage space, you may also want to take a look at closet accessories that add functionality to your closet. There are hidden units, such as mirrors, that you can remove from the side of the closet wall. You can install small shock absorber plugs that will prevent the closet doors from slamming shut when you close them. With the modern closet organization systems available, updating your closet can be a really interesting experience.
