We are in the midst of running a contest on all the major social media outlets. The prize is a dream closet (valued at up to $2,000) and it has caused a lot of homeowners to comment on the lack of space in their traditional reach-in closets. It was these comments that have inspired this blog post which aims to encourage homeowners to love their reach-ins.

Reach in closets are common in many homes and are typically not as deep as their walk-in counterparts. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be just as organized. Here are four tips to a better organized reach-in closet:

  1. Vertical Storage Makes a Big Difference: In closets with standard shelves and single rod, it can be hard to utilize every inch of space. Find a storage solution or closet organizer that offers a designated place for everything.
  2. Shoe shelves work wonders. Slanted shelves or shoe storage cubbies keep disorderly shoe piles at bay. It also makes picking the perfect pair far easier because you can easily scan available options.
  3. Utilize all hanging space. Keep blouses, skirts, dresses and suits in great condition by hanging them. A closet solution that offers double or triple hanging capabilities can really maximize space and can be easily adjusted as your needs change.
  4. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Our closet storage systems offer accessories such as drawers, tie and belt racks, valet poles, jewelry trays and more. Thinking about your closet as more than just a place for clothes can really help you improve the use of your space.
