One of the most useful and easy-to-install closet accessories is a simple set of hooks. Closet hooks are ideal for hanging everyday outerwear items, like a lightweight coat or rain jacket, and also handbags, purses or children's book bags. Also consider a closet valet and what kind of hangers will be best for your needs.

Closet hooks can be installed on closet walls or even on the back of a door, saving valuable wall space. A valet hanger or rod can also be a useful addition to a closet. Wall-mount hanger valets allow for extra room to hang clothing when closet space becomes tight. These valets are easily mounted to the wall and are often able to be folded down when not in use. Closet valet rods are often made to be extendable and retractable, allowing more room for excess clothing. Valets are also useful when setting aside clothing to wear for the next day or a special event.

Of course, simply selecting proper hangers can also lend a great hand in proper closet organization. Not only does this step help to eliminate what can often become a messy mixture of hangers but it will also properly preserve clothing. Plastic, wooden, textured, rounded and fabric hangers are just a few varieties to consider when choosing an option that will work best for your space and budget.
