If you’re considering a customized closet, here are some things to keep in mind:


First and for most – this is your closet – ask yourself, what’s right for you?

There’s no right way to store your clothes. Some people prefer stacks of folded clothes, while others prefer to hang everything. Whether you’re organizing by color, season, or style. Before we sit down and talk about design; have an idea of how much space you need. Do you have loads of shoes, that you like to see each morning as you consider your options for the day? Do you have suits and dresses that need to hang in full length?  Do you keep your coats in your closet? Do you need shelving? Most closets do and if so, how much will you want to devote to folder clothing? 

Hanging clothing is a nice option for larger spaces as clothes that are hung up tend to hold their shape better for longer. When thinking about hanger rods there are two main types to consider

  • Double Hanging- Double hanging is utilized for shorter pieces like shirts and is a great way to maximize your closet space with two hanging bars. 
  • Long Hanging- For longer pieces like dresses you’ll want to have one high hanging bar so that clothes don’t bunch up


We all love shoes, how are you storing yours? 

You have a variety of options for shoe storage. You can choose from shoe racks, cascading shelf shoe racks, and angled shoe shelves. It’s a personalized choice, so go with whatever you feel suits your space and your shoe collection.
