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?

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.
