The correct closet layout and closet configuration can turn your closet from a nightmare into a dream.
When you are determining the kit that is best for your closet you should consider size and budget. Kits generally come in a 3'-6' option or in a 4'-8' option. They are usually available in white and metal finishes. Most DIY kits are designed for beginners to install and can be done safely and effectively with basic tools like a drill, screwdriver and level.
The right configuration can maximize your space by providing hangers, shelves and accessories like shoe rods, wire baskets, and drawers. Double rods are a great way to maximize usable space in a closet. Many companies that sell kits also have online tools that help you design a layout and configuration that best suit your needs.
Symmetrical layouts are a great way to design a child's closet and can be spiced up with baskets, cubbies and boxes of different colors. When adults are sharing a large closet, consider tailored walk-in closet design ideas that can maximize the space while providing for the different needs that come with men's and women's clothes.
