Ask anyone who has ever bought or rented a home and they'll tell you one of the most important features of a living space is the closets. No matter what type of closet, the truth is adequate closet space can make or break home organization.

Linen, coat, bedroom and utility closets are all standard fixtures that allow for the storage of smaller items — like towels, outerwear and cleaning products — and clothing that is used on a day-to-day basis.

Of course, if closet space is plentiful, then the options for closet systems multiply, allowing for more storage and organization choices. A walk-in closet is a popular type of closet for homeowners who are seeking a larger space in which to organize clothing, shoes and accessories. His-and-her closets are also an option for master bedroom, and a closet that is designated specifically for a child's clothing and toys is particularly useful for keeping clutter under wraps.


Organize All the Closets Throughout Your House

One of the most useful closet types outside of the bedroom is the kitchen pantry. A pantry space is ideal for storing canned goods, a surplus of kitchen cleaning products or small appliances, such as a blender or slow cooker.
