Closet corners, when not done correctly, can create huge amounts of wasted space. It’s very common to see hanging rods installed in a crisscross fashion, making the corner completely unusable. If you are able to get clothes hanging all the way into the corner, they become impossible to access. This is the most common, and yet easily avoided mistake of closet design!
Avoid this mistake from the beginning. If you’re able to have a say in how your closet is designed, make sure that this situation is prevented. The best way to utilize closet corners is to only have one hanging section run all the way into the corner. On the adjacent wall, something other than hanging that is less deep should begin 24” off that corner. This will give you ample access to your hanging clothes.
