For those who are looking to have a hand in the design of their space, a custom closet allows for plenty of do-it-yourself options. Shelves, adjustable clothing rods, drawers, container storage, jewelry organizers and wall hooks are just a few of the custom options from which you can choose. Paint and wallpaper also help to add a personal touch to a custom closet space.

Store-bought closet organizers are also an option for customizing your closet. Plenty of companies have designed shelving, drawers and organization cubes that are sold individually, but can be easily arranged to fit together. These practical options make for a functional and clutter-free space that was inspired by your personal flair.
