Walk-in closets are a great luxury feature of a home. To enjoy them to their fullest potential, they must be organized correctly. Whether it’s a his-and-hers in the master, or a walk-in closet for your kids, knowing how to maximize space is key. Customized designs have one thing in common: functionality. From great lighting to shelving, you can create a space that not only works but looks good, too. Here are a few ways to enhance your design:

Use Every Space

Every wall and space that doesn’t have a rack or shelf on it should be used for something. Hang a few hooks to add belts, hats, jewelry, ties, or scarves. The space at the very top of the closet? Add some additional shelves to house seasonal items.

Use Higher Bars

A lot of closet space is wasted because there’s just one bar to hang clothes. By raising the bar, you can add another bar, drawers, or cabinetry underneath for additional storage options.

Consider an Island

If your closet is large enough, an island can serve many purposes. You can use it as a dressing table, a space to hold jewelry or lay out clothing. You can also have one side of the island mirrored to see how shoes look with an outfit, or have one side operate as a dresser with built-in drawers to alleviate the need for extra furniture.

Add Shelving

Floor-to-ceiling shelving can help organize all the extras in the space. It’s easier to see shoes, and adding bins and labeled boxes makes things tidy and easy to find. Open shelving with drawers on the sides or bottom creates a functional, yet attractive option.
