5 Must-Have Functional Details for Creating a Wow-Worthy Closet

#1 Full-Length Mirror:

Let's start with a classic essential: the full-length mirror. A must-have in any closet, a full-length mirror serves its practical purpose for outfit checks, saving you the hassle of going back and forth in and out of the closet. If sacrificing wall space isn't worth it, and a mirror door over shelving doesn't work for your design, this pull-out Tag Hardware mirror is a fantastic option.

#2 Decorative Focal Point with Hidden Storage:

Why settle for a lack luster storage solutions when you can have both style and function? Incorporate a decorative focal point in your closet design that doubles to showcase and provide hidden storage. This not only adds visual interest to your space but also maximizes storage without sacrificing style.

#3 Upper Sections with Doors:

When it comes to maximizing storage space in your closet, don't overlook the importance of utilizing the vertical space. Incorporating upper sections with doors allows you to store items out of sight while keeping them easily accessible. From seasonal clothing to bulky items like bedding or luggage, these enclosed compartments help maintain a clutter-free environment and create a polished look.

#4 Wall Organizers for Efficient Use of Space:

Make the most of your closet's wall space without overcrowding by incorporating smart organizers. Hooks and shelves are typical ways to utilize wall space. However, these two Tag Hardware wall organizers offer hook-like storage for a variety of items and cover more wall space, providing versatility in what can be stored. By optimizing vertical storage, you'll create a more organized and efficient closet environment.

#5 Playing to the Closet Layout, Including Corners:

Lastly, don't forget to play to the strengths of your closet layout. If you have a nice square or rectangular closet, the possibilities are endless. However, when that is not the case, which is the situation in many closets, you'll want to take into account any sloping ceilings, alcoves, or cutouts.
