- Shoe Racks
Custom display shoe racks, cubes or sliding angled drawers are the ultimate option for any custom closet. You only need to imagine how wonderful it would be to have this option to realize the benefits of this design feature. It also keeps your shoes in better condition longer.
- Vertical Shelf Dividers
This is one of the most simple and clever ways to keep your folded-clothing stacks from merging into each other. The frustration it saves you will make you wonder how you ever lived without them.
- Roll Out Shelves and Wide Drawers
Functionality and ease of use make this option a seamless way to navigate your closet efficiently. The simplicity this feature offers will save you a stack of time in getting ready for the day or for your next event.
- Valet and Designated Accessory Hooks
A valet hook will not only be useful for hanging outfits being considered for the next day, but even your dry cleaning items that need to be dropped off. It will also serve as an ideal place for that scarf or hat you need to rest somewhere other than the floor before you fly out the door. Designated accessory hooks will help keep things like belts, bags and scarves nicely displayed and organized. Out of any feature you might install in your closet these will get the most workout.
- Built-in Laundry Hamper
There are some excellent designs available for this feature, even slide out options with wheels so you can take it straight to your laundry. A laundry hamper in your closet will not only eliminate unintentional clothing clutter in your room but help you foster good organization habits.
- Double Hanging Rods
This option is often ideal for a small closet space giving you the freedom to hang more items. Installing adjustable hanging rods will give you plenty of options to suit your needs. A designated slacks rack is also something to consider. Make no mistake; installing double racks will give you twice the hanging space.
- A Mirror
A full length mirror in any closet is essential. Ideally if you have room, install a double or three-way model.
- A Closet Seat or Built-in Bench
There is no longer a struggle while standing when putting on those panty hose or stilettos if you have a chair or bench-seat in your closet.
- Good Lighting
Without good lighting, you might as well be playing “pin the tail on the donkey” whilst trying to figure out what to wear each day. Good lighting in your closet is a must.
