Best closet system TechnoBuffalo 2021

A good closet system can mean the difference between neat clothes, hung correctly, that you can wear out in public, and clothes that were at the bottom of the laundry basket. Make sure you give yourself and your clothes the best chance with these closet systems.

Rubbermaid Configurations Closet

Best overall: Rubbermaid Configurations Deluxe Custom Closet Organizer

Staff Pick

While the Rubbermaid closet system is not the prettiest design, but when it comes to functionality, it can't be beaten. The system is simple to use — you need to screw the rails to the wall and attach the shelves — but offers an almost infinite number of combinations. Whether you require long hanging spaces for ball gowns or shelves for your tee-shirts, there is a combination the will suit you.

Keep your life organized

When we moved into our new home, my wife and I were sorely disappointed with the closets we had. All they were were huge, long poles for hanging clothes, and that was it. I'm a nerd, so I have many awesome tee-shirts that just don't need to be unhung up, so we had to do something. We decided on the Rubbermaid Configurations Deluxe Custom Closet Organizer System — two of them actually — because they offered the most flexibility at the best price. My wife has long gowns, and I have suits that need a high pole, but we also have shirts and blouses that don't. With this system, can we mix and match as needed.

We also decided to get even more organized with the Simple Houseware Closet Underwear Organizer. It allowed us to manage our unmentionables in a way that made them easy to find and easy to match. The organization is key.
