If you’re planning a move in the near future, it’s no doubt that you have a lot on your plate. The act of moving alone is exhausting and there are so many things that need to be transferred, packed, organized, or thrown out. If you’re moving into a house that has ample storage space and perfectly curated closets, that’s great. Unfortunately, this isn’t a common reality. When asked, most homeowners would choose to re-design their closet space before moving in. This saves you time, energy, and the hassle of moving in only to take everything out for a custom closet installation.

To help you get the most out of your new home, we recommend planning ahead for your new closet storage space. By answering a few questions, you can work with the professionals at Closet Organizing Systems™ to design and install your dream closets before your move-in date.

1. What are your organization needs?

Think about your current closet space. What do you like about it and what you wish you could change? Keep these things in mind when talking to our designers. You should consider whether or not you have a lot of accessories and if so, do you want them to be organized in their own areas or create a separate space outside of the closet for them? Will you want a his and her space or are you fine with one cohesive storage area? Your opportunities are endless, but you will need to have a good grasp on the things you want in order to turn your dream closet into a reality.

2. What are the dimensions of your space?

After you’ve determined your organization needs, it’s important to get an accurate idea of what your closet can actually become. While it is possible to create a beautiful, functional closet with a small space, you will face some limitations. Before getting too excited about your dream closet, make sure that you get accurate dimensions of the space.

3. How will you use your closet space?

Do you plan to use your closet simply as storage or do you want to be able to sit at a vanity surrounded by all of your fashion options? There are plenty of ways to turn your closet into your own little boutique dressing room, but you’ll need to consider the space you’re working with. Unless you have a bedroom-sized closet, there will likely need to be some sacrifices. Luckily, the designers at Closet Organizing Systems™ can help you get the most out of any space, big or small.

4. Are there any aesthetic features you can’t live without?

While size can bring limitations, you can still incorporate your desired aesthetic features. There are endless options for color, tone, and even types of wood that can be used to create your closet system. If you plan on having a door, you can choose the profile and add custom moldings, stain matched coloring, decorate hardware, and any storage organizational accessories you can dream of. Take some time to look at pictures of closets and see what brings you inspiration. Then talk with one of our professional designers to begin the process of planning ahead for your new closet storage space.
