Get the most out of your closet storage

Design the kind of closet that works best for your stuff

Raleigh custom home builders are spending more time on the kinds of closets you need most. Here’s how to figure it all out – and make the most of your closet space – with some great ideas for designing your storage areas.

It doesn’t have to be big. It doesn’t have to cost a lot. In fact, a well organized closet starts with making the most of every inch – with carefully placed shelves and multiple height rods.

Whether you opt for ventilated wire shelving or custom built and painted wood shelving, you can keep things in order – and make it fun – with contrasting colors.

When more space is available, Raleigh custom home builders can tuck a full "built in bookcase.”

Instead of packing in a bunch of little shelves, the builders are inserting spacious shelves that can be further divided with baskets or labeled bins that can hold folded clothes, socks, or even toys.


Closet Idea #3 - Custom Built Cabinetry

If you spot a closet treatment you like, bring pictures – your builder will let you know what it will cost to make something similar.




Closet Idea #4 - Add Natural Light 

Closet Ideas | Closet Pictures | Raleigh Custom Home BuildersWant to let in some light? Consider a new home design that includes windows in its closets.

Your Raleigh custom home builder can build shelving and hanging rods all around the window – so you can really see what you’re looking for.

They can even add a built in bench or seating area.



Closet Idea #5 - Include a Built In Shoe Rack 

Closet Ideas | Closet Pictures | Raleigh Custom Home BuildersSpecial shelving can be put in place that holds your entire shoe collection – at a slight angle, so you can see them easily.

If you need even more space, consider "His and Hers" closets.

These are either two individual closets, or huge closets are  divided in the center, with wrap around shelving and multi-height hanging rods. 

Ask your Raleigh custom home builder what they can do for you!  

Some builders can even customize your closet space further by changing the layout and the wall structure, to incorporate the kind of storage you have in mind.

Plan ahead – and you’ll have all the space you need.
