Create a Valet Closet

Create a Valet Closet

Valet closets are not only beautiful, they are also great for making the most of small spaces and helping to stay organized.  Valet closet accessories are inexpensive, but help you to keep things where they go.  Using valet options around your closet can help you to eliminate the need to add more shelving or crumple things up in drawers, baskets and bins.  Use these tips to create the valet closet that will open your eyes to a whole new world of closet organization.


Valet rods are easy to install.  They generally come with screws that attach and anchor into your wood shelves or studs.  The first kind of valet accessory that we will talk about is the standard valet rod.  This is a retractable rod that you can use to hang clothes that you plan on wearing soon.  It also makes a great place for hanging items to steam or air dry.  These rods just give you that little bit of extra hanging space that you need when you're brushing wool coats, conditioning leather coats, or simply hanging things until you can get to them.  Some have a grip where you can manually pull them out and others have a spring mechanism that you push and the rod extends.  When you're done, the rod stores neatly away in its own housing.


The next type of valet rod that you might like to have is a tie rack retractable rod.  These rods have hanging bars for multiple ties.  Try to find one that has rubberized grips or no-snag clips to hold your ties.  Ties are rather slippery and you don't want them to end up on the floor.  Keeping your ties on a valet tie rack will keep them organized and they will only take up about three inches of space in your closet.  Tie valets are also great for organizing and hanging scarves.


Belts can also be hung on valet rods.  Belt buckles hang easily on the hooks of belt valets.  Some have adjustable hooks so that you can slide them closer together or further apart, depending on the width of your belt buckle.  These not only save space, but they keep your belts from getting scuffed, bent, and misshapen, like they would in a drawer.


Belt valets are also great for organizing purses and other items that hang by straps.  You can even use them to hang boots with small metal clip hangers.  Other clothes hangers are useful for helping you to organize scarves, sheets, comforters, and a multitude of other items that need to be organized in your closet.  Cedar hangers are great for storing coats, metal hangers save space, and suit hangers keep your suits nice while keeping trousers from slipping off the bar.


Using the right combination of specialty clothes hangers and valet bars can help you to quickly and inexpensively organize your closet in a way that is as attractive as it is easy to maintain.
