Top Accessories to Consider in Your New Closet

Top Accessories to Consider in Your New Closet

There are a few things you'll be thinking about if you're setting up a new closet, and one of these will be the accessories you plan to utilize. A closet space is only of limited use if you don't have the right simple accessories to help with everything from organization to storage, so choosing these ahead of time is often the way to go if you're installing a new closet.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we're happy to not only offer a wide range of closets and other storage products, but also to provide clients with various closet hardware products as well. What are some of the top accessories and related items you might consider to make your closet complete? Here are a few.


One of the single most common and useful items you can get for your closet is a good set of racks. This can include hanging racks for clothes, shelves, and other such items.

Today, there are a huge range of different rack formats and types to consider. This includes racks made specifically for certain types of clothing (like dresses or pants), as well as multi-purpose racks that can do a little bit of everything.

Hooks & Hangers

Of course, even the best racks in the world won't do you any good if you don't have anything to hang on them! This is why it's important to consider which types of hangers and hooks you might need.

Again, there are all sorts of options on the market today. This includes different materials (plastic, wood, metal), as well as speciality hangers for things like ties, belts, or scarves.

Many closets will contain multiple types of hangers and hooks to accommodate all of the different types of clothing and accessories that need to be stored.

Shoe Organizers

For many people, shoes are some of the most difficult things to keep organized in a closet. This is because they often come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and styles, which can make them tough to properly store.

One solution is to invest in a good shoe organizer. This can take many different forms, but essentially provides you with a way to store shoes without taking up too much valuable floor or shelf space.

There are all sorts of different shoe organizers on the market, so it's important to find one that will work well for the types and quantities of shoes you have.

Storage Bins & Boxes

Another great way to maximize the space in your closet (and keep things organized) is to use storage bins and boxes. These come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes, and materials, so you should have no trouble finding something that will work for your needs.

Storage bins and boxes are great for storing everything from clothes to shoes to accessories. They can also be used to seasonal items that you only need to access occasionally.

Investing in a few good storage bins and boxes is a great way to get the most out of your closet space.

Drawers and Drawer Dividers

For those who want to take their closet organization to the next level, installing drawers (and drawer dividers) is a great way to do it. This allows you to store all sorts of items in an organized and easily accessible way.

Drawers come in all sorts of different sizes, so you should have no trouble finding something that will work for your needs. You can also find drawer dividers that help you to keep things even more organized.


Especially in walk-in closets, mirrors can be a great addition. They not only help you to see yourself while getting dressed, but can also make the space feel larger and more open.

Much of the difference between the available mirrors on the market will be in terms of the kind of "coverage" you want. For example, some mirrors will just be a standard full-length mirror, while others will include additional features (like storage space) as well.

Lighting Accessories

What good is a perfect closet space if you can't see what you're looking for? This is why it's important to consider the lighting in your closet (and to invest in some good lighting accessories).

If you're starting from scratch, you might want to consider installing some recessed lighting in your closet. This will ensure that the space is evenly lit and that you'll be able to see everything you're looking for.

In addition, there are all sorts of different lighting accessories (like lighted hangers) that can help you to see things more clearly. For instance, lighted hangers will illuminate your clothing so that you can easily see what's available.

Ironing Board

If space allows, some who have a regular need for ironing will consider a built-in ironing board in their closet. This is a great way to save space and to have everything you need right at your fingertips.

An ironing board can be easily installed in most closets (and can even be folded away when not in use). If you do a lot of ironing, this is definitely a worthwhile investment. And especially if you have a small closet, it can be a real space-saver.

These are just a few of the different accessories you might want to consider for your new closet. By taking the time to choose the right accessories, you can ensure that your closet is both functional and organized.
