Question: Hi Kay, I am thinking of getting a custom closet organizer system in my master bedroom closet. Call me a copycat, but I am always interested in seeing what the best selling products are when making a purchase. What would you say your top closet accessories are? Thanks Kay. Looking forward to your response. – Markus Rhodes
When planning a custom closet system this is actually a common question. I’m happy to tell you what my top 5 custom closet accessories are! I hope this information is helpful.
1. Valet rod
A valet rod is a very useful closet accessory to have. It is a small rod that pulls out so you can hang your dry cleaning, robe, or the outfit you’ve planned to wear the next day. It just slides out when you need it and slides back in when you don’t. It is such a simple concept, but as soon as you have one, you won’t know what you ever did without it.
2. Tie and belt racks
Tie and belt racks are are a popular custom closet accessory. Many people throw tie and belts in drawers, which only results in them getting tangled or damaged. These racks allow you to hang your belts and ties up so they can stay neat and avoid creases and wrinkles. Another advantage of having them hung you is that you can easily see the style you looking for.
3. Slanted shoe shelves
How many times have you gone into the back of your closet and found a pair of shoes you forgot you had? All shoe shelves are great, but slanted shelves are especially nice because you can organize your shoes by style and color and even see shoes that are stored above eye level. Slanted shelves always have a toe stop to keep your pairs in place. These shelving are available in wood and melamine, and the toe stops are available in Lucite® or contemporary metallic fences.
4. Drawer and shelf dividers
Nothing is better to keep the contents of your drawers organized than having dividers to keep the contents into sections. Especially for smaller items like scarves, socks and underwear, drawer dividers make it so easy to keep everything neat and easy to find. I also love shelf dividers for hard to store items that tend to fall over like boots and handbags. Shelf dividers help keep them standing upright instead of ending up in a big pile.
5. Jewelry drawer dividers
Not only women enjoy jewelry drawers, men love these as well. Jewelry drawer inserts and dividers are available in velvet or a Lucite® which is pictured here. The top drawer is where I suggest to keep jewelry, glasses, and other small items that are easy to misplace. It is especially nice to have one custom made that not only holds your precious items but also keeps them organized and protected in a beautiful way. We also make custom valet drawers for men that can hold his glasses, wallets, cufflinks, watch collection and other small items.
