Custom Closet Considerations for Your Wardrobe

custom closet JacksonvillePlanning a custom closet redesign in your Jacksonville or St. Johns home can be energizing and exciting. However, it can also be daunting. You want to make sure to address all the key areas a closet should cover. You also want to add the custom flourishes that will truly make it your own. When creating your custom closet design, use the following tips from More Space Place as a checklist to ensure you create the most effective custom closet.

Blouses, Slacks & Skirts

These items will take up the majority of room in most peoples’ closets. What is the optimal way to organize them? Plan enough space so nothing gets wrinkled when stored, and make sure you can browse and reach into all areas of your closet easily and comfortably. One solution for this is to include multiple closet hanging rods.

Jackets and Blazers

These items may fit alongside your blouses and slacks, but if you’re a business professional or have a significant number of these pieces, you might want to create a separate section for them. Consider an enclosed area with hinged doors to ensure nicer items stay protected.


Do you have a lot of hats of varying shapes and sizes? Consider adding a sectioned shelving system for storing them so they don’t become crushed or damaged. The design can be seamlessly integrated with the rest of your closet to ensure a consistent look.

Dresses and Gowns

If eveningwear is part of your wardrobe, you’ll want to factor in a place for dresses and gowns. These items likely aren’t worn as often as the rest of your clothing, so plan accordingly. You can make them less accessible, but you should also make allowances to ensure they will not become creased or wrinkled.

Neckties, Scarves & Belts

Accessories can easily become damaged if they are not properly organized and stored in your closet. Consider a rotating hanger in a special section cleverly tucked away in your closet, yet easily accessible. Special hooks and hangers can also be included to keep these items organized and at your fingertips.


Having a traditional jewelry box works, but it’s kind of ordinary. Why not integrate your jewelry storage solution into your closet? More Space Place Jacksonville offers custom storage designs for jewelry, including secure, fully extendable drawers.


Don’t forget about your shoes! They are a crucial component of every wardrobe. You shouldn’t have to settle for scattered floor storage or one of those cheap over-the-door storage racks. Custom shoe storage can include perfectly sized shelving or cubbies that allow each pair of shoes to have their own designated space.

Finishing Touches

Consider storage ideas for those specialty items like cuff links, watches, bow ties, etc. Smaller bins with dividers stored in drawers can be an ideal solution.

Planning a custom closet design can seem daunting, but it’s an amazing opportunity to get organized and finally really love your closet! Contact More Space Place serving Jacksonville and St. Johns today to schedule a free in-home design consultation with one of our experts.
