Custom walk in closets, reach in, built in, and other closets for your unique and individual purposes.

"Everything has its place and a place for everything" is our mantra. With usually limited and often vastly inadequate space for closets in your home, Johan Closet Solutions 15 years of experience will shine thru by professionally organizing and maximizing your valuable space.
  1. First consider wall height. If you have 9ft ceiling, maximize with 8ft (96")closets and not 7ft (84) which is often the case. If the closet is full of clothes and you see drywall, you probably haven't used the space to its full potential.
  2. Make the hang units 14" deep rather than the old standard 16" depth. Why have clothes stick out more than necessary?
  3. Start by dismissing the idea that a simple rod and shelf will do unless you want to maximize Inefficiency. It may work in the beginning but over time closets tend to fill up and not thin out. It's best to keep the long hang to a minimum and have double hangs. After all, you are doubling your space with a double hang! Even a small entry hall closet can be vastly improved with a double hang section.
  4. Do you not like the extra step of placing your clothes back on hangers after the wash? Then consider more shelves for clothes that don't wrinkle. You can go right from hamper to closet shelf in one easy step for items such as jeans, buttonless shirts, shorts, and sweaters. Keep the vertical shelf spacing at 12 inches or less for easy stacking and removing. Since folded shirts, shorts, and jeans are around 10-12 inches wide, make the width of the shelves in increments of 20 to 24 inches or 30 to 36 inches. Avoid 16 inch wide shelves since they are too wide for one item and too narrow for two.
  5. Baskets and drawers are perfect for smaller and more private articles of clothing such as socks, underwear, leggings or anything you want to remain dust free. Interior vertical depths for drawers of 6" or less are just too shallow. 8-12 inches is an ideal height for drawers. Any deeper and you'll likely forget what's at the bottom or dread getting it out.
  6. Vertical shoe "towers" were once a luxury but we think they are almost a necessity. We all know how shoes get lost on the floor under the hanging clothes. With shoe shelves it becomes effortless to see your shoe choices and get on with your day. With vertical spacing of shelves commonly at only 5.25" and shelf widths of 16" for women and 20" for mens shoes, you can fit a lot of shoes and minimize loss of hang. Avoid the box "cubbies" since shoes don't all fit neatly in them and they are not a space saver. Don't be a shoe jammer! Tilt the shelves slightly for a better angle and the "ahh and ooh" effect.
  7. For walk in closets with corners, consider curved angle rods and shelves. With a curved corner rod and shelves you instantly avoid restricted access and blind spots. Johan Closet Solutions specializes in curved corner units.
  8. If you have purses and handbags, devote a small section for them. They take a minimum of space with 6-8 inch wide shelves and space them 8-9.5 apart vertically. No more wondering how many purses you can hang on one hook!
