The proper closet Layouts are critical to maximizing the efficiency of your storage spaces. For every given storage space there are literally hundreds design options available. If you use computer aided design software (CAD) finding the closet layouts that meets the needs of your home or business is relatively easy. A quick check of the Internet will provide you with lots of design ideas. Most of the top closet design and installation companies provide good online software that allows you to initially design your storage area. Depending on your needs and budget you may want to call in a closet design specialist to assist you.

In the past closet design and construction were relatively simple. You basically had one clothes pole or rod that ran the length of the closet with a single shelf located above. If you have ever been in any older home you have seen these age old designs. When in use these closets have the top shelve full of boxes and on the floor is a mixture of footwear, boxes and bags of clothing. The clothes pole is full from wall to wall with very little organization. Any clothing removed from the closet looks just awful with wrinkles and stretched fabric. These old closets were fine back when most people had few clothes and only one or two pairs of shoes and boots.

Today's closet layouts reflect the changes in our lifestyles. Analyzing what you are going to store in your closet or storage area is a critical first step in any design. Obviously storage areas for a business, home, basement or garage are all going to have different requirements.

Never the less there are still just two basic types of closets. The "reach in closet" consists of a single wall layout that can be accessed from outside the closet simply by opening the closet door or doors. All shelves and/or clothes poles are located along the back wall of the storage area or closet. Reach in closets are the most common closet found in any home or office. Again maximizing the efficiency of this space requires you to itemize all the possible items that would be stored within the storage space.

Walk-in closets come in many different size and shapes. The largest walk-in closet layouts allow for at least 3 walls of shelving and clothes poles. In general well designed U-shaped closets and storage are very efficient in maximizing space. Proper design and installation of a walk-in closet will most often require the expertise of a closet or storage space specialist or contractor.

Locating the expertise that you need will depend on where you live. One of the easiest places to find assistance is you local home improvement store. Both Lowes and Home Depot provide simple closet layouts assistance. They also have contractors that can install your closet for you. If you live in an urban area most likely there will be closet and storage space designers and contractors that will provide you with the ideas and options that will meet all your storage needs.
