The Top Five Closet Accessories For Your Master Closet
If you have the typical closet, it consists of a rod or two from which to hang clothes and a shelf overhead to store items that you don’t need to access very often. In a master bedroom walk-in closet, you may have a bit more shelving or more clothing rods, but for the most part, closets come as bare-bones spaces, ready for you to fill them up with your belongings. When it comes to organization, closet accessories can make all of the difference. Here are the top five closet accessories for you to consider:
- 1. Shoe Rack Whether you have a few pairs of shoes or a few dozen (or a few hundred!) pairs of shoes, tossing them on the floor of your closet is not the way to keep them in good shape. You probably start out placing them all neatly in careful rows, but as you and your partner go into the closet, they gradually get kicked into all sorts of mayhem. A shoe rack will keep your shoes in good order and in good shape. Most importantly, it will keep them off of the floor.
- 2. Jewelry Tray Many people like to keep all of their accessories in their closets, along with their clothing. A jewelry tray makes it possible to keep your small items in the closet but out of the way. These are often lined with velvet and separated into compartments, which helps to keep necklaces, earrings, pearls and diamonds from rubbing against one another, causing damage.
- 3. Valet Rod A valet rod swings out from the closet, allowing you to hang your outfit for the next day or a series of outfits if you are planning a weekend trip. This helps your morning routine because you can iron your next-day’s outfit the night before, then simply hang it on the rod with whatever accessories you plan to add. Your clothing won’t get crushed or crumpled between other items, and it will be there at your fingertips when you get out of the shower and are ready to get dressed.
- 4. Pull-Out Mirror Do you have a lack of room in your master bathroom for a full-length mirror? A pull-out swivel mirror might be the answer that you’re looking for! This mirror stows neatly away with your hung items, and it easily pulled out when it’s time to get dressed. Once you’re satisfied with your outfit, simply push it back into its place, where it will be ready and waiting for you without taking up more than a few inches of space.
- 5. Pretty Hangers To keep your clothing in the best condition, you’ll want to hang it properly, on nice hangers. Wire hangers are good for the dry-cleaner to give away, but not good for storing clothing in your closet! When purchasing plastic, wood or satin-lined hangers, choose something that is aesthetically pleasing to you. The point is for you to want to spend time in your closet, after all!
