Everyone can use more closet space, but how do you increase your bedroom closet capacity without adding an addition or taking away from the space in your room?

One way is to get better organized. A good closet design, can take a clutter stuffed closet and make it seem more roomy. With the right design, you’ll have plenty of places to store your clothes, shoes, hats and other accessories. Plus, the best part is that you’ll be able to access the clothes easily and they won’t be all smooshed together and wrinkled.

If your closet is simply a pole that reaches from end to end, then you simply must revamp it! With some clothing specific furniture, you’ll be able to get more organized and avoid the frustration of pawing through the closet searching for what you need. Of course, you must take accurate measurements and scour the stores for the perfect closet organizing system for your closet. Take care not to buy one that is too big, or too small for your space.

If you have money to burn, there’s some great pre-made bedroom closet designs which are made from nice wood and can be installed in your closet. There’s also some similar modular design components made from less costly materials that can do the same trick. Make sure you buy materials that will be sturdy enough to hold your items and last the test of time.

When selecting the modular pieces for your closet and creating the overall desingn, you need to think about what type of clothing you have and which items you wear the most. Do you have tons of shoes, but not a lot of shirts? Then you’ll want more storage units for shoes. If you have a lot of hats, scarves and purses, make sure you design in storage space for those. Your bedroom closet design should be customized to the types of clothing and accessories you own.

Have you always admired that walk in closet your best fried has? Well you don’t have to have to have a big walk in closet to get lots of storage space! You can buy design units for reach in closets and, of course if you have a huge closet you can even buy islands that go in the middle of the closet for extra drawer and folding space!

There’s different modular units you can purchase to organize your closet and there’s a different unit for almost any type of clothing or accessory you can think of. Some of the units you can select from include:

• Shoe Cubes – individual cubes fit your shoes perfectly so that you can easily see what shoes you have and select the right ones.

• Tiered Tie Racks – tiered rods display your ties individually without taking up too much space. Makes selecting a tie a snap.

• Drawer Units – a small bureau inside your closet provides drawer space for those little things you don’t want to leave out in the open.

• Shelves – for folding sweater and jeans or holding purses, hats or what have you.

• Slide Out Bins – integrate your laundry basket into your closet – use slide out bins to store dirty laundry, then simply slide them out and bring down to the laundry room on wash day.

How much space can you gain? You might be surprised to learn that a well planned design can double or triple your closet space! Using stacked rods for those shorter items can help you get twice the amount of closet out of the same space and other units help to organize and store accessories in stacks leaving you with lots of closet space to store those new clothes and shoes!
