The 18 Best Closet Organizers

Organizing closets maximizes storage and divides items into easy-to-find, tidy categories. The best closet organizers help tame both walk-in and reach-in closets, no matter the size. So, let's start finding the best organizers for your closet from whole systems to accessories.

For closet systems, budget and aesthetics help narrow down the right materials. Metal is strong and budget-friendly, where wood is more luxe, but a bit pricier. Solid wood is built to last a long time, but try laminate for the look at a lower cost. Though these systems typically work for any closet, consider how visible your closet is; for more visible setups, you may want to spring for a more attractive option.

In terms of size, closet organizing systems typically range from 4 to 10 feet wide. Most can be cut to size or purchased in multiples to accommodate larger closets; this sizing can be totally DIY or you can hire a professional to help. Take measurements before buying and, if replacing, removing the old system before measuring can help with accuracy.

These systems typically secure to closet walls; most kits come with hardware, but likely require tools, like drills, screwdrivers, or hammers. Freestanding closet organizers require assembly but no wall installation or, typically, power-tool usage — a great storage solution for rooms without closets or if your closet capacity just isn't cutting it.

Accessories can enhance the systems below or an existing system in your closet; you'll see my favorite accessories below as well. Keep scrolling for organizers fit for your clothes, shoes, purses, and more.
