Which Closet Organization System Is Right for You?

When it comes to organizing your closet, it’s not as simple as installing some shelves and hanging rods, or arranging your wardrobe based on color, style, or season. You have several different closet organization systems to choose from, and each one has its pros and cons, depending on the type of closet you have and how you intend to use it. Let’s start by identifying your options for a new closet organization system so you can move forward from there.

Reach-In Closet vs Walk-In Closet

Whether you have a reach-in closet or a walk-in closet will probably be the biggest influence in determining the closet organization system you’ll need. Not only does one have more space than the other, but the organization system each type of closet can hold changes. For example, a reach-in closet generally allows you to look at your entire wardrobe at a glance, but because space is limited, it tends not to include things like jewelry or accessories, which are usually stored somewhere other than the closet (or in another closet if you have one).

By contrast, because walk-in closets have so much more space, not only do they give you an opportunity to include more clothes, but they also usually include space for jewelry and accessories, in addition to having a dedicated space for each type of clothing you have in your wardrobe.

Modular vs Customizable

The next thing you need to consider is whether you need a modular or a customizable closet organization system. A modular closet organization system is a storage system comprised of pre-built units. While there are different modular closet organization systems for different types of closets, the basic idea behind the modular system is a one-size-fits-all approach to closet organization.

By contrast, a customized closet organization system is uniquely designed to fit your space and your needs for that space. It can be designed and built to fill your closet without overfilling it, while ensuring the right types of storage are available for each type of clothing and accessory you need to store in your closet.
