Closet Storage Containers
Try a closet storage container to corral clutter instantly.
Closets can collect more random stuff than any room in a house. Tame the overflow with storage containers that complement your room's decor and restore order to the space. Whether you plan to use bins, boxes, baskets or bags it's important to evaluate how you will use them so that you can identify which will work best.
Boxes with tops or covers are terrific for storing seasonal items, protecting them from dust, moisture, light or pests. They stack easily on high shelves above hanging clothes and are a great way to use an area that can often be underused. Plastic boxes, clear boxes, cardboard boxes and wooden boxes protect while keeping the contents in easy reach.
Shelves Open to Reveal Closet Storage
Walk-In Closet With Plant
This walk-in closet has all the style of a well-organized shop! Spot favorite shoes, handbags and dresses in an instant. Baskets are a tidy way to hide (and corral) harder-to-store items like belts.
Watch in amazement as you remove a blouse from its hanger … with one hand! Folding hangers by Quirky pop open and closed for easy removal from the closet. They also allow you to insert a hanger without having to stretch out the shirt collar or unbutton the top button. Magic, indeed.
White Closet With Barn Doors
Vacuum storage bags are very popular, efficient and affordable. They are great for large seasonal items like sweaters, jackets and blankets and when space is at a premium they can be a terrific way to maximize it. The clear bags allow you to see what's inside and their vacuum seal protects clothes from moisture, dust and bugs.
Bins and baskets with open tops are useful to maintain order on shelves and help keep clothes folded and unwrinkled. You can get colors, sizes and styles to match any decor and fit anything from socks to blankets. The other great thing about bins and baskets is how easily they travel from the laundry room to the shelf. Bins and baskets are also a terrific way to keep track of toys, balls and sports equipment in children's closets.
Storage bins, boxes and other containers come in a huge variety of materials. Plastics, metals and cardboard are all affordable and sturdy enough to hold a variety of types and weights of items. You can also create an eclectic look using recycled or repurposed items as storage containers. Keep in mind that the inside of any storage containers should be clean and baskets should be lined to prevent snagging clothes.
