Walk-In Closet Organization Ideas For Your New Home Boerne

March 17, 2016

Nothing beats a walk-in closet for roomer clothing storage, but even a walk-in layout can become cluttered if not organized correctly. Before you know it, your shelves are piled high and your hanging area is full, making it hard to find anything you need. If your walk-in closet has become a mess in your home in Boerne, here are some organization tips to clear the chaos and create more storage space.

Light Up Your Storage

One thing that is often neglected in walk-in closets is adequate lighting. Regardless of how well your closet is organized, it is difficult to find what you need in a dim room. Add overhead lights that illuminate the room and consider lights under shelves for dark corners. 

Double-Up Your Hanging Rods

If you only have one level of hanging rods in your closet, make more room by adding a second level rod. Shirts and other short items don’t need all the extra space that is lost underneath. Have one small section for long items such as coats or dresses, then have a double rod design for your shirts and folder slacks. 

Wire Bins and Shelves

Organize your folded items by adding wire shelves and bins for ultimate storage. Wire closet organizing shelves are ideal as they allow air to surround your clothing, keeping them fresh and fighting moisture. Designate shelves for sweaters, jeans and other items to make it easy to find the item you need when you need it. 

Shoe Storage with Style

Get your shoes off the floor and protected in style with the addition of shelved shoe storage. Cubbies on the back wall can be a great way to easily find the shoes you are looking for; make them safe from intruding insects by placing each pair in a sealed, clear plastic container that fits neatly into each cubby. Never worry about putting your toes into a shoe hiding a spider or scorpion again. 

Access to Your Accessories

Adding thin drawers for your belts, scarves and other accessories can make it simple to find the perfect accent to your outfit. Use drawer separators to create rows that easily contain rolled up belts, watches or folded scarves so you can see every accessory you own at a glance. Use your shoe cubby for handbags, pairing matching items together for quick outfit assembly. 

Hide the Hamper

Get those dirty clothes out of sight by adding a hamper inside the door of your walk-in closet. Make sure the insert easily comes out to make it simple to bring your dirty clothes to the laundry room. 

Creating the ultimate walk-in closet is just one of the benefits of building a new home.

After spending several weeks scouring MLS listings, visiting re-sales and inventory homes, I had yet to find exactly what I was looking for. I then decided it was time to take a look at what new home builders were doing in the South Austin area. I met with multiple builders in a number of neighborhoods, liking much of what I saw, but had yet to find anything that really stood out in my mind. While out house-hunting one Saturday, my realtor recommended that we check out Scott Felder Homes, citing quality of construction and a good company reputation.
