5 Dreamy Walk-In Closets That Will Inspire You to Organize

Keep your clothes neat and your accessories in place


We have to admit, there are days when we forget to fix the contents of our cabinets and drawers—leading to instances when it seem ready to burst. More often than not, we also have to deal with rumpled jeans and tops with creases. We’re sure many of you are dreaming of having a walk-in closet where you can keep all of these things—including your bags and shoes—organized and in mint condition.

While you can always invest in a makeover to make this possible, you may want to start by gathering and saving pegs. It would also help if you begin editing your belongings and folding your essentials neatly (the KonMari method can help you with this!). Here are five photos that you would surely adore, plus tips on how you can incorporate each into your home.

A lot of brands are offering customized modular cabinets and if you have the budget, you may want to invest in these solutions. Take inspiration from this closet that highlights shelves in varying heights to accommodate pants, blouses, and dresses. No space is wasted as small cubby shelves were added in for ties, handkerchiefs, and other delicates.

RL Tip: If you're looking into having a carpenter customize the shelves for you, consider painting it in neutral hues to create a streamlined and sophisticated look.

If you live in a condo and would still want to have a special place for your belongings, keep the unit from looking cramped by opting for glass sliding doors. This keeps your space airy and spacious, plus, your closet can serve as a focal point in your home. Just make sure that it's always clean and organized since guests can easily see the area.

RL Tip: This look would also work if you're placing the closet near your bedroom. It allows you to choose clothes, prep combos, and change into different outfits with ease.

Planning to start your walk-in closet dreams today? Embark on a DIY journey and gather materials that you can recyle and repurpose. Start with an ordinary clothes rack and paint it white. Once it's dry, you can start hanging your clothes neatly. You may want to use similar hangers to give it a sleek appeal.

Install floating shelves above your rack—make sure they are the same color as your rack. If white is too dull for you, you can experiment with plain wooden pieces to add warmth to the space. After securing the shelves, start lining up your favorite bags—be careful not to fill it with heavy items as it might not be able to hold the weight.

RL Tip: Remember to maximize the available vertical space by adding more floating shelves as needed. If you have space on the side, consider installing rods where you can hang and display heels.

You can also achieve your own compact closet in a loft-type unit! Convert the space under your loft into functional storage by adding open shelves, racks on both sides, and a small cabinet for your jewelries and accessories. If you still have space to spare, you can add a pouf or stool in the middle to serve as comfy seating when you're dressing up.

RL Tip: Don't forget to install proper lighting in this part of the home so you can prep easily and without fuss.

If you already have an existing room where you keep your clothes, bags, and shoes—you can give it a makeover by painting your storage pieces the same color. White can keep it sleek and streamlined while a palette of gray can give it a classic and elegant touch.

In the walk-in closet pictured above, the owner chose a similar finish for the cabinets to create a cohesive look. Since the shelves can only accommodate a certain number of clothes, it's best to segregate your belongings and see which ones you can still keep or give to others.

RL Tip: You may want to dedicate one of the drawers for your accessories. Simply use catchalls to keep them in place. You can also look into recycling old bowls from the kitchen and even an ice tray for earrings.
