Helpful Tips For An Organized Home & Office

Four Steps for Max Storage in a Reach-in Closet

Feb 14, 2023

In a typical home, the primary bedroom is built with the largest closet in the house, where the secondary rooms tend to have simpler – and smaller – reach-in closets. They’re basic by design with a rod for hanging, an upper shelf for a small amount of storage and wide open floor space. As such, this standard layout isn’t great for maximizing the storage potential in these little spaces. But not to fear! These mini-rooms are packed with space potential. See below how to can get the most out of your reach-in closets.


Step One: Start from Scratch

It’s best to start updating this space from its roots. Remove everything from your personal contents to the rod to the shelves resulting in an empty, blank slate. Now an accurate measure from side to side, back to front and top to bottom can be established. Your personal and professional designer from our store will use these measurements to provide you with many flexible options to choose from and then design a detailed custom solution for you.


Step Two: Work and Communicate Closely with Your Professional Designer

Our designers are especially skilled at looking at a space and knowing exactly what it needs to function at its potential. They will need input from you though too, so it’s important to really think about how you want to use this closet. For example, are there some items would need to have easily reachable like school backpacks and outerwear but other items you only use occasionally or seasonally? Who will use this closet the most? Kids? Adults? This information will be crucial to the design process.

Step Three: Consider All the Exciting Options Available to You

Remember when all you had to work with was a bar and a shelf? Well those days are over (thank goodness!) Today’s solutions include drawers, multi-height shelving, cubbies, multi-level rods, hooks, slide-outs, baskets and more. And while you’re having fun with your designer figuring out the most logical options for your custom space, you can use attractive and functional finishes and hardware, so your custom space looks beautiful too!


Step Four: Enjoy Your New Space

Once you have had our talented installers mount and fit your custom cabinets into your reach-in closet, the end is nearly in sight! As you return your items to your newly designed and highly functional closet, you will be in the honeymoon period. In fact, you’ll probably open the door, peek in and smile every time you walk by. You may even invite your friends to see what you’ve accomplished, and they too could be inspired by your new, attractive organized closet space!
