Wardrobe Design Tips for Adding Modern Wardrobe Accessories

3 minute read, by Closet America, on May 4, 2023

Accessories can really make an outfit. They give you more opportunities to express yourself and your personal sense of style. This also helps you tie an ensemble together and make a look uniquely yours. Accessories also add versatility to your daily wardrobe. For example, simply swapping out the accessories can make the same ensemble look and feel a lot different! Considering they’ve become an inseparable part of clothing and fashion in general, make sure there is room to neatly store yours in your closet.

Today, there is an incredible variety of fashionable accessories to choose from, including shoes, sunglasses, scarves, hats, ties, belts, handbags, jewelry, and more. Similarly, there exists a variety of wardrobe hardware and features designed to accommodate these accessories and help you stay organized. Here’s how to use them to create the best wardrobe layout for all of your accessories:

Shoe Organizers 

Shoe organizers come in all shapes and sizes, just like shoe collections. Shoe racks are one of the most common storage solutions for these everyday accessories, but there are also shoe shelves, shelf risers, cubbies, holders, and more. All of these options will help you keep your shoes off the floor and prevent them from being thrown around haphazardly. No matter what kind of shoe organizer you prefer, there’s no question that shoe storage is essential wardrobe hardware that everyone needs. When thinking about the best wardrobe layout, it’s rather obvious where shoes should go – at the bottom! This way, you can slip them on and off easily.

Wardrobe Lift

When it comes to wardrobe hardware, not many people know about the benefits that a wardrobe lift can offer or even what it is. A wardrobe lift helps maximize your hanging space and overall storage room by utilizing the high-level space that would typically be out of your reach. They are especially useful for wheelchair users or people with dwarfism. When you need to access the garments hung on these hangers, gently pull them down using the handle, and the bar will lower to a horizontal position.

Tie Organization 

Wardrobe hardware like a tie rack or tie drawer is a closet essential for any modern businessperson. Tie drawers and tie racks are convenient places for storing ties and preventing them from getting wrinkled or damaged. Additionally, they neatly display a variety of ties at once so you can see all your options and decide which you want to wear.

Utilize Bins for Loose Items

It’s no secret that socks and underwear are some of the hardest articles of clothing to store effectively. Bins that can be placed in drawers are the perfect wardrobe hardware for both and should prevent you from having to dig around to find what you’re looking for. If you prefer to store them differently, the bins can also be set on shelves and stacked atop one another.

Maximizing Your Vertical Space

There will likely be some parts of your closet that are too high up for you to reach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still use these areas to create the best wardrobe layout for your needs. With the help of hardware like a wardrobe lift, you can store clothing up high that’s accessible when you need it by just pulling it down. Alternatively, you could choose to store big items like suitcases or heavy items like comforters that you don’t need very often.

The Closet America Process

Closet America can help you bring the best wardrobe layout you’re envisioning to life with the state-of-the-art technology and high-quality craftsmanship we use to create custom-designed organizational solutions. We start by getting to know your space, your lifestyle, and your wants and needs during a free consultation. From there, our design consultants will use computer-assisted design (CAD) technology to create an interactive 3D model of your space to fit a new closet storage system into it. Once we’ve landed on a design you love, we use proprietary “screen to machine” CAD technology to bring the design to life. Everything is built from scratch by hand at our factory in Landover, Maryland by our highly skilled technicians. Our uniformed installers then take care of every aspect of installation, being careful to leave your space cleaner than they found it.
