4 Smaller Walk-In Closet Upgrades to Stay Organized
A walk-in closet is an ideal place to keep your clothes organized and easy to access. Without the proper accessories, clothes may pile up or become cluttered. Sometimes, the smaller details will make a big difference for your room.
When you hire professionals to create your walk-in closet, consider some of these smaller upgrades that will help you stay organized.
1. Pull-Out Hamper Drawers
One of the easiest ways clutter appears in a room is with dirty clothes. Whether you create a basic pile on the floor or have a basket already, the dirty clothes can add up and create a stench in the rest of the closet. A simple way to keep dirty clothes organized is with pull-out hamper drawers.
A drawer goes into a lower base and pulls out to reveal a basket hamper. The hamper you choose is completely up to you as long as it fits inside the drawer. Options include a pull-out plastic hamper that sits on the drawer or a fabric hamper held up by support beams.
If you separate all of your clothes, then consider a pull-out drawer with two areas for hampers. The dual hampers will make it a lot easier to stay organized with laundry.
2. Valet Rod
As you sort through clothes and select outfits for the day or week, you need a location to put the clothes. You do not want to just lay them down and risk wrinkles on the clothes. One easy way to keep your outfit organized is with a valet rod. This retractable rod goes on the upper inside wall of a closet.
You pull the rod out before you select clothes and then can hang them directly on the rod. As you shuffle through clothing options, the rod is an easy option because you will not need to fumble around with clothes or carry items as you look for more options.
A valet rod makes planning ahead easy. For example, you could pick out multiple shirts for the week and then hang each one up on the valet rod for easy access.
3. Belt and Tie Hooks
Some accessories are a pain to organize. You do not want to just shove belts and ties into drawers. Ties could easily wrinkle and belts could crease. Keep both long items easily organized with belt and tie hooks. A closet installer can place a permanent set of hooks in almost any part of the closet.
Use one side for the ties and the other side for the hooks. The permanent fixture gives you a go-to place for the hooks and allows you to let the items dangle without creating extra clutter or messes.
4. Drawer Organizer
Many people reduce clutter by placing items inside drawers. Unfortunately, drawers can quickly become cluttered messes and make it hard to find specific items. Keep track of smaller items with built-in drawer organizers. For short and narrow drawers, a drawer organizer will help you organize and separate pieces of jewelry like necklaces and bracelets.
For deeper drawers, organizers can help you separate items like underwear, bras, and socks. Simple dividers will help prevent a mass of clothes and make it easier to find exactly what you need. A company can design and plan out organizers to fit your specific needs rather than just use generic dividers.
For example, if you have a large ring collection, then you could choose an organizer with much smaller sections to easily keep rings separated. You will not need to fumble through jewelry to find the exact piece you’re looking for.
