Custom Storage Ideas for Your Home

custom storage ideas North JerseyMany of us probably have at least one junk drawer in our North Jersey home. However, some people also have a junk closet, pantry, or even a whole room dedicated to storing household “stuff” they don’t know what to do with. In her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” organization guru Marie Kondo promises if you organize your stuff properly once, you’ll never have to do it again. A major component of the tidying-up process involves finding proper storage solutions that work for your lifestyle, and those that work best for you are custom designed to your needs. Here Closet & Storage Concepts of Northern New Jersey explores various ideas for customizing your home’s storage.

How to Customize Your Closet Storage

Assess what you have to store. Take everything out of your closet and set it aside in one place where you can go through it all. Toss or give away what you don’t use or need, and take a good look at what you have. Only then can you begin to see what you’ll need for your storage design. If you have a lot of sweaters, you need shelves you can stack them on. If you have a lot of dresses, shirts, and suits, you’ll need hanging space. Our closet design experts can help you decide how many various storage elements, such as shoe slots or sweater cubbies to include based on your inventory.

Get rid of what does not belong. If you’ve been keeping your towels, books, papers, or other random things in your closet, they’re probably in the wrong place. Move the towels to their own customized laundry or bathroom cupboard, and consider custom shelving for your books.

Seek storage solutions with special features. These might include drawers with compartments for socks or jewelry, pullout tie racks, cubbyholes for shoes, shelves with dividers, hanger rods, or a hidden laundry hamper. These kinds of specialized features can really take your closet’s function to the next level. 

Organized Space, Organized Mind

According to U.S. News & World Report, experts agree that organizing your living and working spaces is good for your mental and physical health. A lack of clutter in your home means less clutter in your mind. Customized storage spaces provide the means to keep your spaces clutter-free and help bring about peace of mind. A custom closet ensures you always know where your socks are or where to find the right bag at the last minute. A customized pantry design helps keep your kitchen organized, as well as streamlines your meal preparation.

Remember, your closet isn’t the only space you can customize for storage. You can take the same approach with your pantry, mudroom, or home office that you do with your bedroom closet. Start with looking at what you have and letting go of all the unwanted items, and then you can move on to the fun part of designing your custom setup.
