Drawers, Cubbies, Or Cabinets?
When we talk about closet organizational systems, we generally refer to three things: drawers, cubbies, and cabinets. Rack storage for clothing is already a given, but where (and how) do you fit in other types of unique storage? While there's no right or wrong answer to answer this question, there are a few quick and easy ways to pick the suitable custom closet storage systems for your home. Louisiana Custom Closet lays out ten quick tips to help narrow down your options. Custom Closets And Storage Options: Which To Pick?
Drawers and cubbies and cabinets, oh my! Here are ten of the most important things to keep in mind while choosing between one or more storage options.
What Is Your Optimal Design?
Have an initial idea of your needs, requirements, and design favorites before speaking with a CAD professional. At Louisiana Custom Closet, we provide free in-home estimates for all our clients and interested customers. This allows us to give you personalized design tips long before the construction process even begins.
Folding Or Hanging?
Cubbies and drawers require more clothes folding, while cabinets allow you to hang smaller articles of clothing. Consider your wardrobe type before making a final choice.
Drawers allow for expandable storage. Cabinets may take up overhead space, but they do keep items out of sight. Cubbies may fall into either category, depending on your needs.
Drawers and cabinets allow you to tuck items far out of sight. This is an excellent strategy if you are concerned about expensive things being seen or taken. It's also a great way to get unsightly tools and accessories out of view.
Cubbies are a fast and easy 'reach' system for regularly used items. Drawers may provide organization but be slightly harder to access. Cabinets may be the hardest of all (depending on what you own).
Type Of Clothing
More petite clothing like tank tops or undershirts could be easily kept in a drawer. Longer clothing like ties and scarves are easier kept in a cabinet. Small items with heavy use could nestle into a cubby space, including socks and underwear.
Fancy Or Casual?
Formal outfits do well in cabinets and drawers. However, cubbies and drawers can also be paired together for fast-casual wardrobes.
Have more space on the walls and ceilings by investing in drawers and cubbies. Cabinets are best for larger areas with more light.
Short Or Tall?
If you are a shorter person, consider keeping storage closer to the ground with cubbies and drawers. Taller people may appreciate high-up cabinet installations.
Amount Of Clothing
Larger systems like cabinets and cubbies help store more clothing than drawers alone.
