An Overview of the Most Popular Types of Closets

If you’re considering revamping your closet space, there are a few options to consider. At Bay Home & Window, we understand the importance of finding the perfect organizational system for you. Here’s an overview of the most popular types of closets available today:

Reach-In Closets

These types of closets are perfect for hallways, bathrooms, and rooms that are smaller in size. They are typically limited in square footage and feature a bar for storing clothes on hangers. These days, there are many organizational products that can help maximize the practicality and capacity of a standard reach-in closet. Some examples are stacking cube organizers, drawer units, and organizational units for shoes or ties that hang over the door.

Walk-In Closets

There are many size and design options for walk-in closets. Walk-in closets can be outfitted with hanging bars, drawers, or even seating and mirror options. Before you build, it’s important to consider the function that your walk-in closet will provide. Some people use their walk-in closets to store a variety of items, including extra bedding, laundry baskets, or children’s toys, while others use their walk-in closets exclusively for clothing and maybe even as a dressing room.

Armoires and Wardrobes

If you’re not ready to construct a brand new closet, a wardrobe or armoire might be right for you. In a room with underutilized corner space, wardrobes can be designed to fit within that space. Armoires are free-standing closets that are perfect for children’s clothing. A big bonus for armoires is that they are incredibly easy to customize in order to match the style of your room. A vintage armoire provides a warm old-world feel and a modern armoire can give a stylish minimalist look to any space.

Organizational Tips for Small Closets

Many people believe that small closets simply cannot have an effective organization system. The truth is that tiny closet spaces have inspired some of the most creative ideas and solutions to get the most out of the area. It takes a custom closet design to make the space work for you, but getting there isn’t necessarily difficult or expensive. Here are some tips:

Divide and Conquer

You can put so much more in a tiny space if you have lots of shelves. Shelves should be spaced as closely together as possible while still being far enough apart to serve their intended purpose. For example, you may only need four to six inches at the top of your closet to store your extra blankets, so there’s no need to leave a foot of space between the top shelf and the ceiling. On the other hand, your folded sweaters may need 18 inches or more. You might even add shelf dividers to section up your horizontal space. Don’t feel like you have to arrange your shelves by some generic standard—do what works for you!

Contain Small Items

Divided trays or baskets are excellent closet organization tools when you have small items that tend to get lost in the mix. If you have many small accessories, consider a small stackable drawer system that you can put on one of your shelves. Items like ties and scarves can be looped through hardware or hooks you install in the wall. Shoes can go into a door pocket organizer or on their own shelf, depending on your needs.

Label Everything

You’re making the most of a small space, so you’re probably putting a lot of items into it. Try using adhesive labels to make sure that everyone knows exactly where everything is or should go. It’ll cut down on shuffling up your newly organized space looking for something specific.

How Interior Shutters Can Cut Your Energy Costs

Reducing the amount of energy you use isn’t just good for the environment—it’s good for your wallet, too. Did you know that interior shutters can significantly reduce your energy costs while also adding to the beauty of your home’s décor? Here’s how:

Interior Shutters Reduce Heat Loss in Winter

Interior shutters provide an extra barrier between your home and the outside elements, forming something of a thermal shield at your window. Solid shutters are best for preventing heat loss, but louvered shutters do provide some benefit here as well. When less heat is allowed to escape from your home, your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard or as often to maintain a comfortable temperature. This saves you money immediately on your utility bill, but may also save you some in the long run in terms of wear and tear to your heating system.

Interior Shutters Reduce Solar Gain in Summer

In summertime, it’s hard to keep your home cool because of solar gain—that is, the amount of heat your home absorbs from the harsh sun. Most of this gain comes through the windows. Interior shutters can effectively block extra heat from penetrating through your windows, keeping your home cooler and your energy bill lower.

Other Benefits

You can also open your windows in the summer while leaving your interior shutters closed to allow some fresh air in without too much heat. Shutters can also serve to keep insects from entering your home, as well as to protect your privacy. Since interior shutters are permanently installed in your home and built to last, you can enjoy all their benefits indefinitely while also adding value to your home.
