bedroom closet

I have a closet that is about 10 ft wide, but the opening is only about 6 ft wide. This leaves about 2 ft of closet on both sides that is almost inaccessible. I was thinking of floor to ceiling shelves turned sideways to make it easier to access rather than facing toward the front of the closet. Any ideas? I thought about hangimg a rod the full length of the closet but it would be awkward to reach any clothes that way.

How deep is it? Turning shelving "sideways" in those areas would make it more accessible/usable.......but keep in mind if you have a central hanging rod running the entire 10 foot span, any clothes hanging on the ends will make it difficult to reach things placed on those shelves.

If that is an issue you could store things there ( those shelves ) you rarely use, or use seasonally, e.g. down comforters.

How deep is the closet? How tall is it? Is there a light fixture you have to navigate?

What kind of door is on it?

Have you looked at any of the closet organizing catalogs or websites, for ideas if nothing else?

Shelves on either side sound like your best bet. Floor to ceiling especially would really maximize the space. You could also get those battery operated lights you can stick on the ceiling so you can see better in those corners.

Turning the shelves sideways at the back will only work if the closet is deep

I have this product and I'm very pleased with its versatility. Around 100 bucks at either Lowes or HD. A lot cheaper than a custom closet. I can't remember which store carries the product, but the other one sells closet maid. I didn't find that one as good
