1. Built In Laundry Basket
Make your closet a complete closet by adding a custom built in laundry basket. These can be in the form of a pull out basket, or an angle drawer basket. With either basket, you will have a clean and sleek place for your dirty laundry.
Instead of having a laundry basket in the middle of your closet, install a permanent custom laundry basket. Who wants to see your dirty clothes in an open basket in the middle of your beautiful new custom closet.

2. Built In Belt or Tie Hanger
Everyone – man or woman – owns a few belts or ties. Give them a custom spot in your closet to find them easily as well as providing a quick put away spot – so that everything is in its place at the end of the day.

3. Jewelry Drawer Organizer
Man, woman or child – well, maybe not child – are all certain to have at least some jewelry. To keep your jewelry organized and easily accessible, you should add a jewelry organizer tray specifically designed for drawers.
With this organizer, you will be easily able to find the perfect necklace, bracelet, cuff links or watch for your outfit. And at the end of the day, you can put your jewelry away in its own custom spot – ready to be found easily again.
4. Pull Out Clothing Rod
This is one of the most interesting custom closet features that you can get with a new closet installation – or you can simply add one of these rods to your existing closet unit.
These pull out rods are easily installed on the inside end of a closet wall. You pull them out when you need an extra rod hanger. You push it back in – out of sight and mind – when you are finished with it.
I can imagine these custom hangers being very useful when you are putting together your outfit for an evening out. They could also be very handy to use as a hanger to hang your chosen work clothes for the next day of work. Be prepared in the morning with all of your wardrobe pieces already picked out and ready to put on.

A pull out closet rod is also perfect for drying out your bath robe. After exiting the bath or shower, your robe will remain wet. Pull out the hanging rod, hang your bathrobe, and allow it to fully dry out before you hang it back in your closet or bathroom.
You don’t want to hang a wet piece of clothing in your closet – especially if your space is even somewhat tight. A wet bath robe, if hung among other clothes in your closet will not dry properly and you may end up with some musty smelling clothes.
Use your pull out rod and let it dry properly.
Black Pull Out Closet Hanging Rod
A pull out closet rod will be very useful for fine clothing that you want to hang dry. The more you hang dry your laundry – versus putting them in the dryer – the longer your clothes will last.
So not only is this customizable feature extremely practical, it will save you money in the long run.
5. Custom Shoe Storage Shelves
If you are going to install a new custom closet in your home, you most certainly want to include space for some custom shoe storage.
For those who have lived without specific shoe storage in their closet, you will not believe the difference. Once you get custom shoe storage shelves, you will never go back – guaranteed.
Imagine being able to go into your closet and see all (or at least most) of your shoes and boots all in one place. The choice of footwear becomes so much easier.
And not only does a custom shoe rack make your dressing easier, it keeps your shoes and boots in perfect condition. There is no stacking, stuffing or hiding. All of your footwear can be visible with each pair having its own proper space.
Custom shoe storage can be in the form of slanted shelves, shoe shelf cubbies or a full on wall of horizontal shoe and boot storage.
