Designer Maybelline Te had a closet custom-built to fit around the headboard; it also serves as part of a night table. This is a nifty space-saving solution if you don’t have any more room to locate a full closet.

If you don’t like the bulkiness of built-in closets, you can use an aparador or a sideboard instead. Here, homeowner Monette Flores uses a charming glass-front cabinet to store her linen.

Install mixed storage


Storing mixed items in one closet works, as long as you have the compartments to fit each clothing type. In this walk-in-closet, shelves accommodate shoes, drawers are there for folded clothes, and the top-most shelf uses a metal bar to keep bags from falling off.

Don’t add handles


If you’re going for an ultra-clean, seamless look, then don’t install pulls or handles on your cabinets. How will you open it? Integrated handles (cut behind the cabinet doors by the cabinet-maker or sash factory), magnetic latches, or push latches all do the trick.

Create his-and-hers dressing rooms


If you’re a couple living together and all your belongings won’t fit in one space, then why not splurge on his-and-hers walk-in-closets? Leslie and Jedd did just that, and you won’t believe that these closets are in the same home! Leslie has her own elegant space (above) with mirrored closet doors, feminine furniture, and a chandelier.

Meanwhile, husband Jedd escapes to his rustic “man-cave,” (above) with storage cubbies for his equipment for diving, fencing, badminton, biking, and more. “Having everything out in the open…makes it so much easier to pack for our outdoor activities,” he says.
