Types Of Closets
Depending on your home, you may have a certain style of closet. Many of you may have the typically reach-in closet with large sliding doors and a closet rod.
Others have walk-in closets that sometimes feature built-in cabinet storage and are geared towards wardrobes (ties, belts, jewelry, shoes).
There are also smaller hallway closets for ironing boards, vacuums, brooms or seasonal coats.

Typically, pull out baskets are used on custom built-ins, but anyone can install them in the dimensions are appropriate.
Closet Basket Finishes
Closet baskets and storage accessories in general usually have various finishes to choose from. Take a look at what color your wood melamine is. Most likely, you’ll have a white melamine cabinet or a wood finish. I recommend selecting a basket finish that compliments that finish.
