Open closets, sometimes called doorless closets, can be convenient when properly set up and organized. Here are a few ways to customize your closet and keep everything looking tidy and uncluttered.

Different Height Hanging Rods

With both high and low hanging rods, you’ll be able to neatly store everything from coats and jackets to shirts and pants in your open concept closet. For small spaces, try our 5-Foot Extra Hanging unit; or for an open master closet, our large 9-Foot Traditional system provides plenty of hanging, shelving and drawer space to meet your storage needs.

Extra Shelving Space

If you’re storing things like handbags, shoes or denim, you need extra shelving. With plenty of shelves, you can put your items on display in your open concept closet. Try our 7-Foot Extra Shelving or the 10-Foot Extra Shelving.

Secure Storage With Drawers

Your closet may be an open design, but that doesn’t mean that everything has to be on display. Drawers are a great way to keep your closet a little tidier and hide away those things you don’t want in plain view.

Space-Saving Shoe Rack

How to Cover an Open Closet

An open closet doesn’t always fit your interior style. In that case, here are a few ways to hide it.

If you have a reach-in closet that lacks doors, sliding doors are a great way to hide the space. Sliding doors can easily be customized to match your décor, plus they’re easy to install and take up very little space.

Bi-Fold Doors

A bi-fold door is a flexible way to conceal your closet. Simply shut the panels when you want to hide your space, and open them when you don’t. Bi-fold doors are ideal for keeping your closet open for easy access, but covering it up when you have company.

French Doors
