Of course, if closet space is plentiful, then the options for closet systems multiply, allowing for more storage and organization choices. A walk-in closet is a popular type of closet for homeowners who are seeking a larger space in which to organize clothing, shoes and accessories. His-and-her closets are also an option for master bedroom, and a closet that is designated specifically for a child's clothing and toys is particularly useful for keeping clutter under wraps.

One of the most useful closet types outside of the bedroom is the kitchen pantry. A pantry space is ideal for storing canned goods, a surplus of kitchen cleaning products or small appliances, such as a blender or slow cooker.
