Pocket Doors

For closets that are open most of the time, pocket doors are a great option. The openness allows natural light to stream into the closet and master bedroom through the uniquely shaped windows. Photo courtesy of ClosetMaid

Master closets are often larger than the other bedroom closets in a home, allowing for more storage options. If two people share the master closet it is important to first decide how the items in the space will be organized to best suit the needs of each person. A practical solution is to implement clothing rods that will store items that are used every day, and use adjustable wire shelving for storing out-of-season clothing or accessories in containers.

Wall hooks are useful for hanging belts, ties and scarves, and shoe racks or cubes are helpful for keeping shoes off the floor.

If the master closet is a smaller space, then use as much vertical space as possible. A set of drawers may be helpful on the floor with a closet rod and wire shelving mounted to the walls as high as the closet will allow. Investing in slim-sized hangers will also allow for maximum clothing storage.
