Closets come in all sizes and shapes. When working with a long and narrow closet or any non-standard shaped space, it's best to get creative and try different storage techniques in order to maximize storage and create order. A drawer and shelf unit greets the owner opposite the closet door and entrance. Incorporating drawers into a closet system is great for storing small items like lingerie. The shelves can hold personal mementos, baskets or folded clothing. This custom design for a narrow closet also incorporates shelving for shoes along one long wall of the deep closet. This shoe shelving doesn't take up a lot of depth — there is ample room for hanging on the opposite wall keeping sufficient space for a center aisle and access to to far end of the closet.
