The best portable closet is one that fits the space or spaces where it will be used and also offers enough storage for the items that will be kept inside. Furthermore, the closet should offer the right kind of storage for the items that will be kept inside. For example, some portable closets are quite simple and only include a rod on which clothing can be hung. However, there are other kinds of portable closets that have shelves, racks for shoes, and even drawers. This second kind of closet may be useful if the portable closet is meant to contain a number of kinds of garments including small items such as socks and underwear.
Before choosing a portable closet, consider the spaces where it will be used. If it will be used on just one space on a regular basis, that space can be measured in order to find a portable closet that is an exact fit. For example, if a portable closet will be used a few times a year to turn a home office or den into a guest room, then the area where the portable closet will be erected can be measured so that the best fit can be found. However, if the closet will be used in a number of spaces, it is best to choose an option that is rather compact and can be tucked into almost any space.
The aesthetics of a portable closet are also a consideration. For example, if the closet will be used for an extended period time or at regular intervals, then it should be pleasing to the eye and, if possible, fit in well in the room where it will be placed. There are some portable closets that have an open format so that all of the contents are visible. There are others, however, that can be closed. These kinds of closets either have doors or flaps that can be snapped or zipped shut.
The kinds of portable closets that can be closed often come in a number of colors. As such, it is important to choose a color that is pleasing an will fit in well in the room where the portable closet will be used. For a closet that will be used in a number of spaces, it is best to choose a muted, neutral tone that will fit in well among many different colors and patterns.
