Section your closet into zones for different items. Incorporating built-in drawers into your closet helps reduce clutter-gathering in the bedroomand are ideal for storing sweaters, intimates, socks, etc. If you need more hanging space, utilize the area above your existing clothing rods by installing a pull-down closet rod.
Down below, go for stackable shoe racks for your shoes, boots and sandals so that you can see them all and make smart style decisions quickly on the go.
If you have the space, consider an island where you can keep jewelry and other prized possessions. Pedestal dishes, upholstered and carved-wood jewelry boxes and sculptural stands can help put your finery on display – and make it easily accessible. If modesty is more your thing, flat-file style drawers with velvet organizers are a great optio to store your bling, including rings, watches, sunglasses and other smaller items from your jewelry collection.
Now that your clothes, jewelry and shoes are all easily accessible, it’s time to make them pop with the ideal lighting. There’s nothing like bad lighting to make it difficult to see all your clothing options. Hang a chandelier or stylish pendant light, or install high-end track lighting positioned in all the right places and keep the lighting not too bright, not too dark – go for the Goldilocks of lighting – just right.
You’ll need to be able to take a seat to keep yourself from falling over while slipping on those designer boots. The choices are endless and depend solely on your style, but great options for a closet are those that don’t take up too much space, such as an overstuffed or high-art chair, or a plush or pleated ottoman.
These simple guidelines can help transform your closet into a luxury retreat that will leave you looking sharp and feeling on top of the world before you even leave home in the morning.
