Custom Closets Design Tips

When designing a custom closet here a few common organizing mistake to avoid? 

1. Shoes

How many pairs of shoes do you own?  

If one pair takes up about 5-6” of width on a shelf how many inches of shelf width (space) will you need to accommodate all your shoes?  



2. Mid hang 

Women, how many dresses do we own that we need mid hang not long hang ? 

My recommendation is to do shelves above or shoes shelves below this midhang section to maximize your space. 


Jewelry Organization


Statement necklaces are hard to keep organized laying down in a drawer. Storing them on an IKEA rod organizer with hooks is a great solution.

Often these rods are used for storing pots and pans on wall space in a kitchen. The opportunities to use these rods and hooks are endless.


Another good way to use them is in a playroom to hold little baskets of colored pencils, markers, crayons, etc.
