4 Smaller Walk-In Closet Upgrades to Stay Organized

Small Walk-In Closet — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

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.

Plan out your whole closet customization with our services at A Tech. We will create a closet to fit your needs and can install one or more of these accessories to keep your closet fully organized.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
