I Want My Closets Transformed. How Do I Start?

September 4, 2018

Whether you are going to the gym, a work meeting or a glitzy formal event, everyone wants to look their best. In order to achieve this, you need a closet system that works for your unique needs, your belongings, and the space within your home.

Organize Your Current Items

Your first step in the right direction is to organize your current items. Throw away or donate unused items so that you know what you need to store in your transformed closet space. Then start grouping all your items according to categories (such as footwear, evening wear, accessories, and hats, for example) and how often you use each item. Some items will be used on a weekly basis while others are only worn once or twice a year, or seasonally.

How Much Space Do You Have?

The next step is to consider how much space you have for your new custom closets. If you have ample space then you can consider a walk-in closet, which is the pinnacle of closet systems. With this option, you will be able to walk into your closet space and see virtually everything you own. If you have limited space, then a reach-in closet would be a better idea, and if you simply don’t have much space to work with then you should have a wardrobe designed.

Determine The Type Of Material

After you know what type of closet system you will be investing in, you need to determine what type of materials you want. Your options include everything from solid wood and veneers to plywood construction and medium density fiberboard with laminates.

When choosing your materials, you should consult a closet design specialist to go over the array of accessories offered. Some closet accessories that you can consider to keep your wardrobe organized include the following:

  • Valets,
  • Shoe trays,
  • Pull-down rods,
  • Belt and tie racks, as well as
  • Custom-made jewelry trays.
