Custom closets are the ideal solution, but not all people can afford them. If you have moved into an apartment or house which already has built-in closets, there’s not much you can do. Ready-built cabinets or mass-produced closets aren’t really the best choice, but if you are stuck with them, you still need to keep your stuff well-organized, accessible, secure, dust-free and well-aired. Quite often, your cupboard might be a large one, but it may be badly-designed. This leaves you with lots of space but your items are still all over the place.
There’s help at hand – in the form of closet organizers. These handy, convenient, add-on storage systems are the perfect response to your storage problems. Closet organizers allow you to maximize the benefit of every inch of storage space available on your closet.

Before purchasing a closet organizer, it’s important to keep some factors in mind:
Motive: You may want additional space to arrange your things neatly, or keep them organized in a particular way. You may want protection and security for your valuables, keep your expensive clothes, designer shoes and bags safe and dust-free or you may need space to organize the different sorts of apparel you require for work, leisure, different seasons or time of day. Based on these factors, you can decide whether you need more shelving, hanger space or an entire kit. If you want a quick, low-cost, functional solution you may pick an off-the-shelf, easy to assemble organizer made from affordable, lightweight materials. However, if you would like something classy, sturdy and attractive, you can select a more expensive system.
Durability: If you’re on a temporary assignment, or you move home regularly, a temporary organizer that is simple to install would be the best course of action. With seniors or toddlers in the home, visitors or guests, temporary storage demands become the focus. Thus, you may not take a long-lasting, permanent alternative. A wire closet organizer that needs to be locked into position is preferable in such cases, as opposed to a sturdier one which has to be assembled and screwed into the walls.
Fit: Match the organizer to the dimensions, looks and basic theme of your cabinets and space. Select your closet organizer according to the kind of things you own. E.g. for those who have more bags and shoes or you need to access different things during different times of day , you can select the right sort of closet organizer.
