My closet is a nice size, I need help with how to organize it. Any suggestions?.. I like wood hangers so I'm going to hang pants and shirts, but I just don't want to throw things in there like I have I'm a neat freak lol, like shoes that don't have boxes and what to do w/ the ones that do have box?

Based on what is visible, I suggest you put all the hanging on the left wall. Then take out the hanging rods on the right wall. Then put a shelf stack on the right wall, no closer than 24" from the left wall, with at least 6-7 shelves. Done.

How about clear plastic shoe boxes so you can see the shoes?

Hi Ahseytic Tye,

I love organizing! Your closet is a great size to allow for the perfect space for every item.

I put together some closet organization options that range in price. But I have many reasonable hanging options included in the list: http://www.build.com/favorites/closet-organization-ideas-2977?source=fav_hzz_2977

Good luck organizing and have fun with it!

Thank u Erica, sound wonderful! I was wondering if anyone could do a small layout to the designing of my closet in organizing it kind of like a blue print. I am not good at all putting ideas together. It's like I can see it but can actually put it together... Any one able to?

This is how I would rearrange your closet:

Hang all the clothes on the top level to the right, this will keep them cleaner.

On the bottom level, I would remove the rod to give a little bit more space.

On the bottom level on the left, I would put a laundry basket and a shelving system for shoes. Something like: http://www.build.com/honey-can-do-sho-02222/s952780?source=fav_hzz_prod_s952780

On the right bottom level, I would get a portable shelves and put storage bins to organize other items. Something like: http://www.build.com/honey-can-do-sft-01500/s952668?source=fav_hzz_prod_s952668

On the lower shelf to the left, I would put a compartment organizer for things like belts, etc. Something like: http://www.build.com/honey-can-do-sft-01625/s952680?source=fav_hzz_prod_s952680

On the top shelf I would put my nicer shoes in a storage bin with a window to protect them. Something like: http://www.build.com/honey-can-do-sft-02065/s952693?source=fav_hzz_prod_s952693

Hope this helps!

You are so, so welcome! I would go check out some place like Target. They will have some similar pieces. Then you can see how you like and then try ordering the more speciality pieces online.

Good luck!

I understand hanging sneakers and casual shoes, but I wouldn't enjoy dusting off my heels before I wear them. I still think clear boxes are the answer to shoe storage in a typical closet.
