Closet Storage and Organization Buying Guide

We've all seen them: Those closets with nary a sock out of place. While you might never have your socks or shoes organized by color, you can bring order to your clothing with closet storage and organization products.

Types of Closet Storage and Organization

Types of Closet Storage and Organization

Our closets do much more than just stash what we aren't wearing or using. From coat closet to laundry closet, master bedroom walk-in to guest room extra, our closets offer order and efficiency in our daily lives. Sure, they hold day-to-day coats and vacuums, but they also stash memorable pieces like holiday ornaments. That's why it's important to use what's out there for closet storage and organization—clothes hangers, drawer dividers and organizers, drawers and carts, garment bags, hanging shelves, modular systems, organizers, storage systems, over-door hooks and organizers, shelves, shoe storage, storage baskets, and tie racks—to keep yours in good shape.

Product Features

Product Features

If you had to take everything out of all your closets and do an inventory, you'd probably be amazed at the number of items those spaces hold. And the types of closet storage and organization pieces can help you take advantage of every square inch, from floor to ceiling and wall to door. But to do that well, certain product features should play into your decisions. Those include capacity, dimensions, material, and color/pattern. This guide will help you sort through the options.

Capacity

The capacity you need is determined by both the size of the items and the current collection you're hoping to store in your closet. For example, a drawer that will be filled with socks should not be overflowing; give yourself enough wiggle room to add—and remove—items as needed.

Dimensions

Measure the usable dimensions of your closet (height, width, depth), and let those measurements guide you to the pieces that will work well for your closet storage and organization needs.

Material

Closet storage and organization pieces can be made from a variety of materials. Some, such as plastic buckets and bins, may be more affordable, while others will be more costly but also more durable and longer-lasting.

Color/Pattern

Just because closet storage and organization pieces are mostly hidden behind closed doors doesn't mean they should sacrifice style and personality. Look for hues and patterns that reflect the room's decor and your home's overall look and feel.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Your family can breathe a collective sigh of relief when, at long last, that hall closet makes it easy to find winter clothes and gloves, or the sheets are finally sorted into bins in the linen closet. But it's difficult to get to that point if your closet storage and organization pieces aren't chosen with care. Purchase considerations include installation/placement and flexibility. Use this short overview as you review your needs.

Installation/Placement

Some closet storage and organization pieces are like plug-and-play electronics: Hang them up and use them, or set them on the floor and fill them. Still others will be more involved and require tools and basic construction knowledge if you are installing them yourself.

Flexibility

Clothing, shoes, toys, appliances: All of these things and more are stored in closets, and all the things we store are likely to change and grow (or sometimes shrink) as our lives change. Your closet storage and organization pieces should reflect that and be able to grow and change with you.
