Is your closet space in shambles? Perhaps you’d want to look at these organized, customized, and well-planned closets and wardrobes from our Real Homes to get a few ideas. One of the lessons you’ll learn is to create a storage unit that’s fit for your space, your lifestyle, and the number of your possessions!

Make it fit around your bed


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.

Place it in a cupboard


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.

Indulge in a luxurious ensuite walk-in


Architect Joel Muñoz didn’t add doors to this walk-in-closet so that the dressing area immediately opens to a luxe, spa-like bathtub area—a great idea if you have the space and the budget.

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.

Work it around a vanity


Decorator Gwyn Guanzon added custom-built cabinetry all around this homeowner’s vanity dresser. Frosted glass panels hide the clothes and bags, but allow you to have a glimpse of what’s stored inside.

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.

No closet?


No problem, according to Kristine Neri-Magturo. For this model unit at Avida Centera, the interior designer opted to use a clothes rack from Urban Abode. The delicate frame and antique brass finish suits the French theme quite well.

Add one under a bunk


Interior designer Hannah de Leon created a customized bunk bed with a closet underneath for this children’s room. This bunk/storage type of bed also works for small studio units, which often lack space for a full closet.

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.
