SuiteSymphony is available in pre-designed DIY kits, making upgrading your closet simple and still customizable.

When you think of the three areas of your house that are the least organized, which spaces top your list? If we had to guess, we’d say the bedroom, the kitchen and the garage. So, whether you want to upgrade your closet design, improve your kitchen pantry storage or straighten up the garage that has become more of a storage unit, ClosetMaid has a DIY solution for your home improvement project.

Upgrade Your Closet

If you’ve finally found the time to clean out your closets and have realized it’s about time for an upgrade, ClosetMaid has DIY closet starter kits that make it a simple home improvement project to complete. Improving your closet storage system can give you more functional space, and it doesn’t have to be costly or complicated.

One of our most popular lines, SuiteSymphony can be customized by combining tower sizes, corner units and accessories like doors, drawers and shoe shelves to fit your personalized closet needs. These accessories are available in a variety of finishes and styles for affordable storage that fits your lifestyle. Note: After receiving your system, you’ll most likely need to cut the top shelves and hang rods to fit your exact closet width.

ClosetMaid’s 8-Tier Wall and Door Rack adds extra storage and easy access to your pantry.

Refresh Your Pantry

If you’re reorganizing closets around the house, don’t forget about your pantry. With the right setup of kitchen storage and organization, you can create a pantry that will help make cooking more enjoyable!

When designing the pantry, the first step is figuring out how you’re going to organize all of the food items of different shapes and sizes.

Barbara Reich, professional organizer, shared her key to decluttering with ClosetMaid, “Group like items together. Having like items together is the only way you’ll know how much of something you have and whether you need more.”

This piece of advice can be especially useful when it comes to kitchen and pantry organization. If you have all of your spices, pasta sauces and other cooking essentials together, you’ll know when you’re running low on something and what to add to your next grocery list.

If your entire pantry could use some reconfiguring, ClosetMaid has a complete Pantry Organizer Kit. This shelving is heavy duty, so it is strong enough to stack up all your snacks, (up to 1,000 pounds!) and the Close Mesh shelving holds everything in place. The entire system is fully adjustable to your individualized pantry needs.

Organize the Garage

If the thought of finding seasonal sports equipment or holiday decorations in the garage that has become a storage shed stresses you out, you’re not alone. According to a recent ClosetMaid survey, the garage is second to the bedroom for spaces in most need of storage and organization improvement.

Not to worry. We have a variety of accessories to store tools and supplies in the garage. Hooks allow you to take advantage of unused wall space to hang tools or store equipment from the ceiling.

ClosetMaid’s MaxLoad Wire Shelving is made of heavy-duty steel, ideal for garage storage. The shelves’ depth of 12 inches is perfect to fit containers, toys and supplies. We also have a selection of garage storage cabinet options if you’re looking for an alternative design in your garage.
