Because of their spacious accommodation, walk-in closets are favored for extensive wardrobes…and there’s no reason why they can’t have an elegance of their own. Not only are custom-designed closets beautifully detailed; they help to free up bedroom space by eliminating the need for a large dresser or chest.

Check out these ten ideas that go a long way to create the closet of your dreams.

  • Island dressers add personality and subtly create ‘his’ and ‘her’ sides but, they do require a fair amount of space. You need at least three to four feet on all four sides. If you don’t have that much room, the next best thing is a peninsula dresser.
  • Whether you enjoy ironing or not, the closet is the most convenient place to install a pull-out ironing board. It saves steps and time and folds up to disappear when not in use.
  • Right now, cubby holes are off-the-charts popular. When it comes to dimensions, cubbies measuring nine and a half inches wide by eight inches high house most shoe sizes and still leave room for prized heels.
  • Jewelry cabinets with keypad locks can blend in while adding an extra layer of safety.
  • These days it’s not unusual to hang jeans alongside of dress pants with a well-spaced pant rack. And tie racks aren’t just for ties. They hold sunglasses, wallets and cuff links - keeping these accessories together in one place.
  • Drawer dividers add even more organization. Simply adjust them to fit your personal pieces.
  • When it comes to purses, consider hooks. Hook rails showcase individual purses so purse swapping is a breeze.
  • Reduce search time even more with glass door cabinets.
  • Add some drama with light-up boxes to show off your special shoes or accessories.
  • A built-in hamper with transportable bags can fit in with the décor while adding even more convenience.

Walk-in closets have become inviting rooms to spend time in. Make your walk-in as inviting as the rest of your home.
