Custom Cabinet Solutions to Maximize Your Closet Space

Depending where you live, finding enough storage space in your home can be a challenge. The good news is that there are many ways to get creative and maximize the closet space you do have. One of the best ways to do this is by finding a knowledgeable Chandler cabinet contractor to assess the space and design a set of custom cabinetry that will help you make the most of the area and achieve a clutter-free home. Here are a few great solutions to help increase the storage capacity of a small closet.

Tips about maximize your closet space with a custom cabinet design

Deep Cabinets  

One of the most appealing aspects of using a Chandler custom cabinet designer is the ability to take into account the items you wish to store in the area and creating storage space specifically to fit the sizes and shapes of those items. If you have the room, installing deep storage cabinets into your closet will allow for plenty of storage capacity for those large or awkwardly-shaped items that may not otherwise fit in a typical cabinet. 


A custom set of drawers inside a tiny closet is one of the most overlooked ways to maximize a small space. Every Chandler cabinet maker knows that drawers maximize storage capacity while maintaining a clean, simple look. Drawers also put everything easily within reach, without creating clutter. Your Chandler custom cabinet builder should offer a wide variety of options regarding drawer size, number of drawers, depth, height, and on- or off-floor construction. Additionally, drawers can be further customized according to budget, items being stored inside, and aesthetics. 

Utilize Corners 

Corners are another commonly overlooked storage area. If you have an unusually shaped closet or just have corners in odd places, work with your Chandler custom cabinet company to create a storage solution that takes advantage of the corners in your closet.


Pullout storage is a fabulous option for miscellaneous items such as scarves, ties, belts, hats, gloves, and so much more. This is an especially effective solution if you are dealing with a narrow but deep closet. Pullout baskets that sit right on top of shelves are perfect for toys, art supplies, papers, clothing, or other random belongings. 


Basic shelves are an easy project for every Chandler cabinet builder, and an excellent way to keep items off the floor and contained. One of the easiest ways to make an area appear cleaner and less cluttered is by keeping as many items off the floor as possible. This creates the illusion that a space is more organized that it actually may be, and also paves the way for a smoother cleaning routine. It is much easier to clean a room and organize items when each has their own storage basket and can be quickly tucked out of sight and out of the way.
