9 Great Reasons For Modular Closet Organizers For Apartments

9 Great Reasons For Modular Closet Organizers For Apartments

I'm loving modular closet organizers, particularly for apartments.  Whether you are a clothes hog, have to share one closet with someone else or just love the simplicity of a minimalist wardrobe, these modular organizers are great investments.  Here's 9 reasons why I think so.

  1. You can purchase only the modules you need.  Based upon your time and budget, you can add additional units to the existing one. 
  2. You can take the module closet organizer with you when you move to another apartment or even your own home.
  3. Unless you just want to, you don't even need to purchase additional bedroom furniture, such as a chest of drawers
  4. You can install a modular closet organizer right in the bedroom, keeping the apartment closet for yet more storage.
  5. If you don't have an apartment closet, such as in a studio, you can create a fabulous wall modular closet.
  6. You can create a separate dressing area using a modular closet organizer.
  7. Or when installing a modular closet organizer in your bedroom, you can also create a more private sleeping area.
  8. There are closet organizers that have all the attractiveness of stylish furnishings when detailed with picture and crown moldings and designer style door handles and drawer pulls, while other module designs appeal to the minimalist taste.  
  9. Although time is a big factor, many can easily be assembled and installed.  Some installations require minimum to no attachment to walls and ceilings.

This is a Modular Closet Organizer with furniture detailing: picture and crown moldings and decorative door handles:

Another beautiful example of a modular closet organizer used to create a private dressing area.  Note too how the design also creates a cozy and restful sleeping space not bothered by clutter:

This modular closet organizer covers in entire wall and makes use of every inch of it.  The draper closure offers another opportunity to add color and texture in the decor:

Here a very attractive modular closet organizer appears in a bedroom.  It becomes apart of the over all decor with a pair of side chairs, a table, painted walls with pictures, a rug, draperies and gorgeous chandelier:

For a modern, minimalist look, the modular closet organizer below looks best when not overly packed since it's part of the bedroom decor: 

The system below is referred to as a open closet organizer which can be purchased from Ikea, the Stolmen system.  Such systems can easily create a cluttered look but when items are neatly organized, such as using similar shaped containers and grouping clothes color together.  

There are many other types of modular closet storage units but most of these types rely on extensive installation and are permanent.  I've focused on modules more suitable for apartment living.  Have you had experience with a modular closet system also great for apartments?
