There are essentially two types of closets: those you can walk into and those that you can only reach into. While walk-in closets are praised for their large size and customizability, reach-in closets are far more common and can still effectively store a great deal of clothes. If your home only has reach-in closets, don’t feel left out. You can still enjoy plenty of benefits when you turn them into custom closets with additional storage to make the most of the space.

Tons of Adaptable Features

Most standard recustom closetsach-in closets feature one or two hanging rods with a shelf above them. Unless you only store hanging items, this isn’t the best use of space. That’s where adaptable custom closet features come in. With the help of a custom closet designer, you can add several useful storage features to your reach-in closet, including:

  • Adjustable shelves: Move them according to what you’re storing at the time. Add more shelves if needed as your wardrobe grows.
  • Built-in drawers: There’s no need to walk back and forth from the dresser to the closet when the dresser is located inside the closet! Built-in drawers let you store socks, undergarments and pajamas with the rest of your clothes.
  • Accessory trays: Belts, ties and jewelry should be stored with the rest of your wardrobe, and accessory trays conveniently allow this.

Less Time Spent Getting Ready

With all the adaptable features available with reach-in closets, you can store everything close together in their rightful spots. Your belongings are just an arm’s reach away so you don’t waste time traipsing across the room from the closet to the jewelry box to the dresser and back to the closet. An organized custom closet also prevents you from wasting time searching for that particular pair of shoes or digging through clothes for a specific shirt, preventing stress every morning.

Greater Accessibility

Storage solutions designed for reach-in closets make those tight corners more functional, allowing you maximize space in your closet. Also, by taking time to empty the closet and have a custom closet system installed, you have the chance to get rid of clothes you never wear. After all, if you’re like most people, you wear only 20 percent of your clothes 80 percent of the time. Clear out some of the lesser-used items so you have room for the clothes and accessories you really love.
