Elements of a Functional Closet

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we love to help clients sort out their closets and help them get organized. Functional closets often have certain elements in common. We’ve compiled them so you know what to expect when you create your personalized closet space. It is so important to have a closet system in place that is functional for your unique needs, or you risk not using your closet system and accumulating clutter.

A Place for Everything

Having a place for everything is key for a functional closet space. In order to create this space you’ll need to take into account your items and what your closet will be used for. For example, reach-in and walk-in closets will likely need rods at varying heights for items such as dresses, pants, and sweaters. In a laundry or linen closet, you will want to address shelf heights for cleaning products and linens.

Details

This piggybacks off the first point, but to create the most functional closet storage space, the details matter. You need to make sure you have enough room to walk around, or even allow for a sitting area if you desire one in your walk-in closet. You may even need to make sure the closet layout makes the most sense for who will use it. A child’s closet and organization area will need to be closer to the ground so they can be used. Even garage closet systems or entryway closets can benefit by paying attention to the details to really maximize the efficiency of your closet. Carefully paying attention to all of the details can even help to carve out a bit more storage space in your home.

Pretty Pairings and Time

Putting in the time and effort, especially when planning, will be necessary as you create a functional closet system. It is best to allocate plenty of time to do a clean out and to properly plan the most efficient layout. Giving yourself plenty of time to plan will help you hone in on key areas of your closet and create a place for everything. In addition, it will make sure that details don’t fall through. Need professional assistance? Don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Closet and Storage Concepts designer. They’ll help you through the entire process of creating a functional closet system, from properly measuring your space to the design of your closet system.

Many professional closet designers will also say to factor in decorative items when budgeting and planning to allocate for finishing touches such as paint, hardware, or other storage accessories. Functional closets also tend to incorporate unique design elements. These pretty pairings will help to give your closet a design you’re looking for, making you more likely to use it.
