One of the most efficient ways to organise personal items in the house is to custom design a closet space. There are two types of closets mainly, walk-in closets and reach in closets. Time must be dedicated to making an inventory of items that are going to be stored while custom designing a closet. ‘Function’ i.e. the purpose which the design intended to fulfill and ‘Aesthetic’ which is the design appealing to the senses, are two basic principles that must be taken into account. Certified local carpenters are professionals who will be able to build the dream closet as per one’s wishes.
1. Multiple rods
Clothes can be arranged more efficiently if there are multiple rods present in the closet.
2. Closet Drawers
Closet drawers are very important when it comes to storing smaller clothing items like gloves, scarfs, undergarments and socks.
3. Efficient Doors
Closets can have four types of doors. Three of them include folding, sliding and pocket doors. They are efficient in the sense they help save floor space. A hinged door opening into the room can provide space for small items, by adding hooks hangers, pegs etc on the back of door.
4. Sturdy Racks
Racks are normally designed to keep shoes and ties. Racks must be durable and sturdy.
5. Adjustable Shelves
Storage units that have built-in adjustable shelves provide flexibility in closet because the stored items changed seasonally.
6. Depths of shelves
Shelving must conform to the items which are going to be stored. For example, shelves that are 14 inch wide should be reserved for wash clothes, hand towels etc. while shelves around 24 inches are to be reserved for large bed linens etc.
7. Cubbies for Shoes
Cubbies can be designed for holding shoes but they must be cleaned often from the debris accumulated from soles of shoes.
8. Pull-out Baskets
Pull-out baskets and shelves of various sizes are available with many custom closet systems. These pull-out baskets are very useful as the contents can easily be accessed. They can be installed near the floor of the closet.
9. Closet Accessories
Closet accessories are needed to save small items. They include jewellery trays, shelf dividers, drawers and pull-out racks for belts and ties. There can be storage place for a fold up ladder and ironing boards.
There are building specifications that govern which type of lightning that can be used in a closet. Compact fluorescent bulbs are safe. Incandescent bulbs are prone to catch fires in confined spaces.
11. Optimizing Walls
Walk-in closets normally offer three walls in order to storage, even if a window is included. While planning storage, the space that drawers cover must be considered and also the best use of the corners in the closet will have to be ensured.
