5 Cool Additional Features Your Walk-In Closet Should Have

With a walk-in closet from Closets Plus, you’ve got the space and design you need to properly store and access all your clothes and accessories.

But if you want to make your walk-in closet as efficient and stylish as possible, why not enhance it with these other storage solution features and trends?

1. Built-in laundry hampers*

Most laundry hampers sit on the ground. And whether they’re tall and narrow or low and circular, they have one thing in common:

  • They take up valuable floor space.

Just think how annoying it is to have to move a full, heavy laundry hamper to get something that’s behind it; especially if you have to do it over and over again.

Built-in hampers are a convenient space to store dirty laundry without having to constantly step around or move over a floor basket.

They can be placed almost anywhere:

  • Hanging on the wall.
  • Inside custom drawers.
  • Behind doors.

The best thing about having a built-in laundry hamper is that when you don’t need it, you don’t see it.

2. Telescopic valet rods*

Anything that’s long and narrow is a bit tricky to hang inside a closet, such as:

Without adequate space, you end up placing multiple items on a single hanger or rolling them up and sticking them inside a drawer.

Neither of which is ideal, because:

  • Rolling things up can ruin their appearance and shorten their lifespan.
  • Having too many things on a hanger may cause it to eventually break due to the weight.

Telescopic valet rods is a nifty accessory to have because they fold away when not in use and fold out when you want to select an item.

Belts, scarves, ties, and even necklaces won’t get damaged when the rods are put away.

Just like the laundry hampers mentioned earlier in this blog, telescopic valet rods can be placed almost anywhere inside a walk-in closet.

One more thing: With valet rods, you can place all these items together in the same area if you wish.

3. Jewelry trays*

Jewelry is an important part of your wardrobe, just like your:

  • Shirts.
  • Pants.
  • Skirts and dresses.
  • Blouses.
  • Shoes.

Many people keep their jewelry separate from their walk-in closet; stored inside a spare drawer or a large, cumbersome jewelry box.

Custom jewelry trays are unique because they’re designed to safely and securely store jewelry of all kinds:

  • Rings.
  • Earrings.
  • Bracelets.
  • Necklaces.
  • Brooches.
  • Watches.

They’re compartmentalized so that everything stays separate. There’s no chance of your rings getting lost with your bracelets.

Imagine: Walking inside your closet, opening your jewelry tray, and trying things on right then and there.

4. Clip-on shelf dividers*

Shelf dividers

If you own a significant number of purses or handbags, clip-on shelf dividers are a great way to store and organize them.

Usually, purses are stuffed inside a drawer or piled on the floor.

But with clip-on shelf dividers, your purses stay upright and flat without having the weight of other bags sitting on top of them.

You can store your purses anyway you’d like inside your walk-in closet:

  • By colour.
  • By material.
  • By size.
  • By occasion.

Instead of sifting through a messy, disorganized pile, you can just pull out the bag you want – much like you would a library book off the shelf – in no time at all.

5. Built-in iron and ironing board*Walk in closet ironing board

Ironing is an important part of keeping dress shirts and pants clean and crisp.

But if you don’t have room for an ironing board – or if it’s a hassle for you to access your current board – it’s something you may not do often.

The solution: Having a built-in iron and ironing board inside your walk-in closet.

Some high-end hotels already have this feature:

  • Open a door/Pull out a drawer.
  • Fold down the board.
  • Pull out the iron.
  • Away you go.

The same design can be included with your walk-in closet.

You don’t need to have an excessively long iron board; nor do you need a large, heavy, and cumbersome iron.

All you need is something large enough to handle your wardrobe and fit within your closet design.
