Closet organizers allow you to make the most of the space within your closet or wardrobe. Not only that, but it also permits you to organize your closet’s contents so that they are easily retrievable. A closet organizer permits you to put your shoes together, your belts together and to sort out all your other accessories. There is no doubt that a closet organizer is a good idea, the only choice left is whether you make or buy your closet organizer.
The best closet organizer will fit your closet neatly, perfectly. This makes buying one the worse alternative, so if you are at all handy, the better choice is to make your own closet organizer to fit your closet precisely. There is of course, one other alternative, you could have it made for you, but that is the most costly option.
If you make your mind up to make your organizer yourself, the easiest thing to do is to get hold of a good set of woodworking plans. The wood working drawings will depict an exploded diagram of the closet organizer. Therefore, if your closet is not the same size as the one in the drawing, you will have to adjust the dimensions in the drawings.
This is not so hard, you will just have to work out the ratio of the closet organizer in the drawings to the size of your own closet. For example if the closet in the plans is four feet wide but your closet is six feet wide, you will need to enlarge the dimensions in the drawings by 50%. Likewise for the depth of the closet.
If you decide to have the organizer made up for you, you will need to specify the timber to be used and the finish to be applied to it. These decisions will also have to be made if you choose to make your organizer yourself. If you do , it is best for you to get all the bits and pieces together that you will require before you begin construction.
Another matter is what you want the organizer to hold. This could differ depending on your sex. Women tend to have more accessories, men tend to have more socks. Therefore, a woman’s closet organizer should have lots of small drawers, whereas a man’s may only have a few of them.
The timber you use to construct the organizer from should go with the colour and type of timber already used in the manufacture of the wardrobe or closet itself. It is better if they match up. There really is little point in investing in a hand-made closet organizer made from mahogany and beautifully stained, if the wardrobe itself is constructed from compressed wood chippings.
