Your custom closet is a dream come true, but even the best-designed closets can quickly become cluttered and disorganized. If you’re tired of searching for your favorite clothing items every morning, then it’s time to organize your custom closet. We’ve rounded up nine tips to help you keep your custom closet organized and functional.


Group by category.

Instead of stuffing everything haphazardly into your closet, grouping your items by category, from clothing to shoes, bags, and accessories, is essential. Hanging clothes by type is an effective way of keeping your closet organized. Grouping your clothes based on category — shirts, pants, dresses, and so on — allows you to see everything you own and makes it easier to spot what you need. Also grouping your clothes by color helps you find things easier and makes it easier to get dressed in the morning. Grouping your items will make it easier to find what you’re looking for, save time when you’re getting ready in the morning, and help you identify items that you may no longer need.

Use Hooks or accessories.

Use hooks or invest in accessories for your custom closet such as with belt racks, tie racks, and scarf racks,  Hooks are also an excellent way to maximize your custom closet space. Hooks are perfect for bags, robes, and jackets. Be sure to install hooks at different heights so that you can accommodate items of different lengths and sizes.


Use baskets.

Baskets are a great way to organize items such as socks, underwear, and tee shirts. They keep your closet tidy and make it easy to locate specific items. You can even invest in pullout wire baskets or laundry baskets. Try to keep your baskets organized by creating labels or using different colors to identify basket contents.


Donate items.

Donate items you no longer need. There’s no need to keep items that you no longer use in your closet. Be honest with yourself, and take out everything that’s not being used. You can donate to charity or sell your clothing items online.


Try different hangers.

With your custom closet, the first thing you should do is invest in some hangers. You might want to upgrade your hangers to create more space. Look for hangers that are created to save space such as velvet hangers, they are thin, and they grip onto your clothes preventing them from sliding off.



Hopefully, you invested in drawers in your new custom closet. Drawers are perfect for storing smaller items, such as socks, jewelry, and hair accessories. They make it easy to organize your items by color or style. Plus, they keep your custom closet tidy, with no items lying around.


Labels are your friend.

Labeling can be an excellent way to keep track of what’s in your closet. There are a lot of different ways to label your items, from writing directly onto drawers or using color-coded tags, and these small strategies can make a big difference.


Get rid of bulky packaging.

We often keep items in their original packaging, but it might be time to break down the boxes. Disposing of bulky packaging will create more space in your custom closet, making it easier to find items and accessory items.


Make regular maintenance a priority.

As with anything, regular maintenance is critical to keeping your custom closet organized. Set aside time every few months to go through your clothes and belongings, determine what you no longer use, and reorganize your space.


Keeping your custom closet organized doesn’t need to be a daunting task. By grouping your items by category, trying different storage options, donating items you no longer need, and following our nine tips above, you can keep your custom closet organized and clutter-free. At the end of the day, it’s about finding a system that works for you and your lifestyle, so experiment and have fun with it until you discover your perfect custom closet setup.
