Women aren’t the only ones that can appreciate and value a customized closet. Let’s face it, an organized closet that minimizes chaos and maximizes efficiency is good for everyone. Whether you’re a suit and tie or a sweatshirt and jeans kind of guy, a man’s closet demands different features and layouts than a woman’s. Here are some essential features of a great closet system for men that’ll make a man look and feel better before they’ve even left the house!
LET’S START AT THE TOP
Hats don’t have to be an eyesore. Displaying or storing hats on open shelves or inside drawers make them easy to find. Storing hats in this manner also looks much cleaner and organized compared to a bunch of hats hanging on the back of a closet door.
SHIRT & PANT STORAGE THAT ‘WORK FOR HIM’
Not being able to find the right shirt and pants starts your day off on the wrong foot and can even make you late for work. Men’s closets, in particular, should include ample double hanging space to allow better access and storage. Why? Because men’s shirts, pants, and suit jackets tend to be longer and require more space top to bottom to prevent wrinkling and color selection mistakes. This is especially important if your job requires you to own a lot of professional work clothes.
BELTS & TIES
No one wants to dig around looking for a belt, especially when similarly colored. The same applies to men’s ties. Custom pull-out racks and hooks eliminate confusion and maximize space, keeping ties and belts accessible and organized.
Whether you’re wearing dress shoes, sneakers, sandals, or golf shoes, you want to find them easily. Selecting the right shoe for the right occasion is much easier when they are on open shelves that are at eye level. Men’s shoes also require dee
p shelving to accommodate larger shoe sizes. Want to take your shoe storage to the next level? Consider tilted shelves with shoe rails, shoe bins, or rotating shoe racks.
Men may not be as versed in home decor as women but a well-appointed closet still scores points. Define a masculine space with dark colors like walnut or ebony-stained wood and masculine hardware selections. Also, don’t forget to have plenty of adequate lighting to prevent mistaking black pants for brown ones.
