Closet Storage Solutions
Optimizing your closet space may feel challenging, whether it appears too big or limited. However, small adjustments can effectively make the most of the available space. In an effort to help find solutions to common storage problems, below is a guide with advice from Shelley on how to address your closet challenges.
Problem: Your shoes are scattered across the floor.
Solution: For smaller closets, the team can incorporate a shoe revolver, doubling the shoe storage capacity compared to adjustable shelves. Alternatively, angled shoe shelves may suit those with larger closets better.
Problem: If you show up to work with one navy and one black sock, your closet may be too dark.
Solution: The team is seeing more integrated lighting as a rising trend in shoe storage—shelving can look modern and minimalistic or sleek and luxurious. As opposed to solely overhead lighting, the team can install individual lights to highlight shoes or other closet features.
Problem: Where should you put your dirty clothes?
Solution: Many people have hampers in their closets that aren’t always aesthetically pleasing. One solution is to have a spot for a built-in hamper or two so you can sort your clothes while you take them off. The team likes the tilt-out hamper—accessible yet discreet. Another option is a pull-out hamper, which functions similarly to a pull-out trash can. “These are important to incorporate in your closet as you’re thinking through your design,” Shelley says.
