4 Common Closet Problems & What You Need to Fix Them

Today on the Advanced Garage blog, we are going to take a break from talking about garages and instead discuss another space that can often cause us to pull our hair out in frustration: our closets. As you’ve been considering your New Year’s resolution, you may have thought about organizing your closet and finally making use of all the space you have. Now is the time to consider improving your closet. Keep reading to learn more and be sure to visit our website to learn more about advanced Garage and what we can offer you in Sacramento.


Though there are sometimes extenuating circumstances, for most of our customers that we have assisted in the Sacramento area, We find that many of our clients have one or more of the following issues with their closets.

No Organization

Our client’s closets have no rhyme or reason to the organization. There are shoes in one corner and in other completely unrelated spaces. These closets are the epitome of chaos and are many times the product of busy lifestyles: there has been no time to organize so it has yet to happen.

Ineffective Organization

Others have taken the time to organize their closets, but have yet to find the best means to fit all that they have in the closet. They have a system, but that system either doesn’t fit their needs, is cumbersome, or simply doesn’t work. Ineffective organization is almost as bad as no organization.

Wasted Space

Sometimes those in the Sacramento area simply don’t have enough storage space; they bought a house with a small closet. However, sometimes the real issue is poor use of the space that they have. They might have an effective organization system, but simply don’t know how to take advantage of all their space. Perhaps it’s an issue of not being able to reach the top shelf or a odd shaped closet. Whatever the reason, space that isn’t being used to its fullest potential is wasted.

Jam-Packed Closet

Lastly, one of the other common closet issues is having too much in a closet. Though better organization can help this issue, the solution to this problem will most likely begin with getting rid of those things that you don’t need or by utilizing storage spaces elsewhere in your home — maybe even your garage.


If you’re thinking about changing up your closet organization, stop thinking about it and do it! A organized closet will make you happier, and save you time and money. Tired of buying something new, only to find you have nearly the exact same thing, but just couldn’t find it? Are you tired of the amount of time it takes you to get ready because you can’t find something? It’s time to make a change. Here is what you should look for when you’re choosing an organization system:

Effective & Efficient

You need the most effective and efficient organization system for your closet and lifestyle. Your friend may have a particular style that suits them — one that can accomodate their 64 pairs of shoes. If you only have three pairs of shoes, their system may not work for you. Customization is key!

Exact Fit

You also need something that fits the space of your closet just right. An exact fit will make sure that you have the most effective organization system, no space is wasted, and that as much as should be fits in your closet. When you choose a custom cabinet solution, you should never settle for anything less than something that fits your closet exactly.


Why invest in a system that isn’t going to last? If you find the best organization system, you want it to last forever. Also, high-quality means that all mechanical parts should work like they should. Don’t settle for anything less!
