Using Custom Closet Organizers for Narrow Spaces to Maximize Storage

Custom Closet Organizers for Narrow Spaces

You wouldn't trade your family's restored Folk Victorian in Virginia or your own art deco DC apartment for anything. There is a lively elegance to these designs that isn't expressed quite as thoughtfully anywhere else in the country—or during any other architectural period in history. So, though you don't own a sweeping mansion built sometime in the last decade, you possess something far more valuable: a beautiful home with a unique style that matches your own.

The only thing you lack is adequate storage space. And now that your clothing, books, and pantry items are spilling onto counters and out of the corners you’ve tried so desperately to shove them into, it's time to do something about it.

Organizing small spaces is a problem we are all too familiar with. The good news is, we’ve also got the solutions you need to solve that problem whether you live on the west or east coast—or somewhere in between.

The Beauty of Custom Closet Organizers for Narrow Spaces

The reason you'll want custom closet organizers for all of the narrow spaces in your home—not shelving and drawer units that have already been built—is simple. These areas rarely meet today's standard storage measurements, especially in older homes. You may find a unit that is just the right depth for the small cupboard under the stairs, but that doesn't accommodate the space's height—which, of course, is on a slant. When you have limited room for storage, utilizing every ounce of that space is critical.

Additionally, premade closet organization units aren't designed with the needs—or the style—of your individual home in mind. For mass commercial production, they simply can't be. Custom closet organization systems and accessories, on the other hand, are. From the finish of your corner shelves to the handles on your jewelry drawers, the choice becomes yours. 

Imagine it. Organizers for your narrow closet, cupboard, nook, or cranny that are not only designed for you, but with your input. There may be no end to what you can accomplish:

  • Sandals and boots piled on the bedroom floor can be stored along a short wall on adjustable shelves. 

  • Laundry supplies can come out from under the sink, then added to cabinetry above or beside the stacked washer and dryer.

  • Spices, oils, flour, and ghee shoved onto pantry shelves can get their own racks in the narrow kitchen cabinet just beside the oven.

  • Books, games, and even old DVDs can be freed from the coat closet and given their own home in pullout shelves and drawers around the flatscreen TV.

  • Knickknacks, souvenirs, and framed photos of your friends and family can come out of boxes and be put strategically on display in otherwise empty corners.

Of course, for most of us, maximizing available storage space usually begins by paring down our possessions. This can take a little bit of vision, and possibly a lot of hard work, on your part. Determining what stays and what goes is almost never an easy task—and one we don't often look forward to.

On the bright side, sometimes the simple act of hiring a designer to create custom closet organizers for the narrow, unused spaces around the home is the perfect solution to a motivation problem. With someone beside you to help you see just how easily, and elegantly, clutter can be eliminated from your closets, pantry, and living room, you may find you want to start purging as soon as possible so that you can start seeing more of your home's beauty.
