Our closets are one of the most highly used, yet least thought about parts of our home. The problem is that in many homes, a closet is just an afterthought and might only contain a rod for some hangers and maybe some shelves. Smart homeowners and renters alike recognize the value of getting the most out of this space. A well-utilized closet creates better home organization making your life easier. That’s why our experts have put together a list of dream closet ideas to inspire you in your home design.
1. Think about What You Need and Don’t Need
For many people, a closet is a place where they just throw random things they don’t want in their way at a certain moment. Over time, things add up and you’re looking at a packed space where you can’t find anything.
A good guideline to follow is that if you haven’t used or worn something in six to twelve months then you should either donate or recycle it because it’s not essential in your daily life. This leaves space in your dream closet for what you really need.
2. Consider Your Closets As the Main Part of Your Home
A good closet is not a dark cubby with things strewn about randomly but can be a place you even enjoy being in. It can be a space that is both functional and comfortable. It begins with lighting, if there is a light socket or electrical outlets in the closet, then you really have a lot of room to work with. You can get an array of LED lights cheaply in a range of different colors to both create a good ambiance as well as making things within the closet more visible.
3. Get The Right Equipment
You can make your dream closet for a reasonably low budget. For example, if you were working with one of those tall, narrow closets with difficult to reach corners, you can actually do a lot with that. Presuming the closet only features a rod underneath a top shelf you can maximize the space by adding extender rods. Let’s say this closet is a ten-foot high closet, you can position rods at about four feet. From here, you can suspend shelves and baskets adding great places to keep organized.
4. Use all the Different Spaces Available
With your dream closet, you are really getting the most out of the space you have. If you’re working on the principle that you want your bedroom to be as clean and clutter-free as possible then think about how you can use spaces like behind the door. This a great spot for hanging shoes. You can create additional shelving built-in to the walls. This can give you the added benefit of having dedicated space for certain things.
