Brass pendant lights suspended above a central dresser make this closet seem like an upscale boutique. The dark and refined color palette is suitable for a man or a woman, or would even be appropriate for a shared closet for a couple.
Bookshelf for Shoes
The closet of your dreams doesn't require expensive custom built-ins. Converting a simple bookshelf into an expansive shoe rack is an easy way to amp up the charm. With some crown molding at the top, the shelf will look like it was always meant to be there.
Even though it's usually hidden behind closed doors, there's no reason a closet can't be cute. Upgrade a blank slate into a custom creation by painting a simple pattern on the walls. In this closet for a pint-sized diva, gold dots add visual interest, and stacked rods make the most of the available space.
Room with a View
Closets are often dark and dreary, but this design is all about embracing the sun. A large window floods the space with light that reflects off a central chandelier, while white shelving heightens the airy ambience.
One way to maximize storage is to steal space from unexpected and unusual spots, such as the steeply pitched interiors of attics and the awkward bits under the stairs. Well-devised shelving makes the most of these angled areas.
Work of Art
When every article of clothing has its special place, your wardrobe can look like it's on display at an art gallery. Enhance the effect by hanging actual art on the walls to create a luxe setting for your finest fashions.
Room Within a Room
Give some of your most beloved items the VIP treatment by setting them apart in their own special space. Here, mirrored doors section off a stretch of closet, creating a spot for cherished pieces, or even a place to plan out a week's worth of outfits.
Dark wood shelving and a matching upholstered bench keep this closet sleek and refined. The large window brightens the subdued space, while the seating area below is perfect for putting on shoes.
Small Space, Big Impact
This modest closet looks as good from the outside as it does from the inside, thanks to a chic metal barn door that slides along a rail. A crisp and organized interior maximizes efficiency.
You can feel like a celebrity every day if your closet features an actual red carpet. With its spacious interior and storage-smart design, this closet leaves you plenty of room to practice your poses behind closed doors.
