I recently remodeled my under the stair closet (you can read all about the DIY here). I did a lot of research on products/storage unit for the closet. I ended up buying a few amazing accessories that I want to highlight here. Even if you are not remodeling your closet like I did (a full remodel, painting, etc.), these accessories can help give your closet a facelift. Keep reading for recommended closet remodel accessories.

I spent under $200 for my closet remodel. I wanted to keep the costs down as I have a lot of projects I am working on. I wanted the items I purchased to have a big impact and to help me maximize space. I think everything I added to the closet accomplished just that.
Accessories I purchased and used in my closet remodel:
Baskets (Link to similar baskets I purchased)
Here is a picture of my remodel, which I love to show off:
What closet remodel accessories I bought and used in my closet remodel:
First, and my favorite part of my remodel: motion sensor/wireless lights. My closet did not have any lights, but the closet is in the kitchen which gets a ton of natural light during the day and has a lot of overhead lights. The lights add a high end feel for an affordable cost. I really like the look of the lights and that I did not have to hire an electrician to add in lights. Here are the lights I ended up purchasing:
Really useful hooks. Command hooks have become a favorite decor tool for me this year. In the closet I got hooks for my mop and duster. I also got hooks for my kids backpacks. A key to putting up hooks to to figure out first exactly what you want to hang. Buying the hooks was actually the last thing I did for the closet remodel. I found everything else in the closet a “spot” in the closet until I was left with he backpacks, mop and duster.
I love keeping things off the floor in the closet. I need space to walk into the closet, so having nothing on the floor is critical and keeps the closet looking nice.
Here are the hooks I bought for my kids backpacks:
Here are the hooks I bought to hold my mop and duster:
I really like the individual mop holders, because I was able to stagger the mops/duster and use my space to the max. These mop hooks are also sold as a horizontal bar to hold many mops in a line, but the individual hooks I think really maximize space. Here is the straight bar of hooks:
I really wanted to keep things off the floors and these hooks will help me do that.
Storage containers. I could not find the boxes I bought online, but I bought several containers in black to use in the closet. I picked a dark color as it would not show dirt and I knew I wanted to keep the color consistent, for the overall look of the closet. Here are similar containers I was able to find online:
Additional closet accessories I am considering:
I have some additional wall space in my closet, so I have a few ideas of items to add in the future.
A calendar. I want a family command center and hanging a calendar in this closet would be a great start. I do not have a ton of wall space in my kitchen to hang and I like the idea of having the calendar a little hidden from guests. Here is one on Amazon I like:
Charging Station. Part of my idea of the closet being the family command center is to have a charging station. Now my son has a kindle, we have a few iPads, phones, and watches that all need charging. I love the idea of having all the cables in one spot. Here is what I imagine putting into my closet one day:
Art. Well, kind of. I love the idea of displaying my kids art work and I would like to decorate the closet walls with their art. I considered a cork board in the closet, but I love these frame which are designed to hold kids art:
