A Practical Pick

Ideal for kids' closets, wire racks are affordable, durable and easy to rearrange as your children grow. Rubbermaid offers closet systems with expanding shelves and telescoping rods to fit practically any space.

Stylish Solution

While more expensive than wire racks, laminate or wood closet organizers are aesthetically pleasing and available in a variety of finishes. In this boy's nursery by ClosetMaid, white laminate shelves and drawers complement the room's color scheme and provide plenty of storage space for diapers, bottles and other necessities.

Space Planning

Kids' rooms often have shallow reach-in closets, so it's important to configure your closet system to make the most of the space. A double-tiered hanging system paired with drawers and shelves is a great way to maximize space in a boy's closet. Photo courtesy of ClosetMaid

Room for Toys

While clothing storage is the main function of an adult's closet, kids' closets also need space for toys, sporting equipment, art supplies and more. In this boy's closet by ClosetMaid, cubby-style shelves are perfect for storing soccer balls, football helmets and other gear.

Extra Storage

Wire drawers are a versatile addition to a boy's closet, useful for storing socks, folded garments or toys. ClosetMaid's hanging baskets can also be attached to wire shelves with no extra hardware.

Closet Accessories

Additional hooks and rods can be added to most closet systems to keep belts, hats, ties and other accessories organized. Photo courtesy of ClosetMaid

Grown-Up Design

With the right materials, a boy's closet can be just as mature as an adult's closet. Designed by Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., this maple shelving system with a sienna stain adds a sophisticated touch to a boy's bedroom. Wooden cubbies provide an attractive way to store shoes and hats.
