The best closet shelving ideas help create a space that feels open while making it easy to visualize your wardrobe with ease. Discover a few of our favorite types of closet shelves and find a solution that will help make your closet your favorite part of your home.

U-Shaped Closet Shelving

U-shaped shelves for closets help make the most of smaller spaces. They can be customized with a wide variety of shelving, including multiple levels of hanging rods, shelves, drawers, and compartments. This unique setup helps maximize your space by using every wall of your closet. These shelves for organization provide ample room for clothing, shoes, accessories, and more. The U-shaped design also helps ensure your closet is easy to navigate and everything is well within reach when planning your outfit.

Open & Closed Closet Shelving

Open & closed closet shelving offers a high degree of customization where some items can be hidden in drawers while keeping some items out in the open in easy-to-access areas. This design can be customized to meet your specific needs. You can mix and match various elements such as hanging rods, shelves, shoe racks, drawers, and organizers to create the perfect layout that mixes elements of open & closed designs. This unique closet design provides the flexibility you need to stay organized.

Long & Linear Closet Shelving

For those with lots of space on one wall, a long & linear design can help create the perfect organization system for your unique space. These designs are visually appealing, and help make the most of unused wall space. This is a great option for those who don’t have a dedicated closet space. It can be added to any room, and the linear design helps create a tidy space that looks great.

Cubby Shelving

Cubby shelving is great for closets with lots of small items, like shoes, hats, and other accessories, that need to stay separated. Giving each item a cubby space helps your closet keep a clean and organized look. Cubbies are one of our favorite types of closet shelving because of their versatility and ability to maximize a closet’s storage capabilities.

Whole Room Closet Shelving

For those with a spare room, whole room closet shelving can be a great addition to your home. Whole room closet shelving can be customized with hanging rods, shelves, drawers, large mirrors, seating, larger item storage, and other accessories that help make your spare space one of the best in your home.

Backlit Shelving

Backlit shelving is a great way to enhance your closet space and create a boutique feel at home. By incorporating well-designed lighting fixtures and optimizing the placement of shelves and drawers, you can easily spot and retrieve your belongings. Backlights can be added to any design and help create a luxurious feel. This type of shelving is especially helpful in rooms with little to no natural light.
