When it comes to maximizing extra rooms at home, homeowners get creative and carve out dens, home offices, and storage nooks. Aside from these three options, many often turn unused spaces into chic walk-in closets where they can keep and organize their clothes, shoes, and bags. If the space and budget permit, some even incorporate huge mirrors and plush seating pieces into the final look to create a special place where they can play dress up every morning, too.

To maximize the available space, the owners of this apartment in Makati transformed a part of the fourth floor into a walk-in closet/vanity area. The customized storage system consists of open shelves, drawers, niches, and a desk filled with beauty products and other essentials. To make sure that prepping every morning will be comfy and fun, they furnished it with an upholstered chair and a tufted bench in a neutral color that matches the finish of the shelves.

If your space allows, you can add furniture pieces, too! Start with baby steps by investing in a pretty footstool or an ottoman.

To maximize the available space, the owner of this unit and her design consultant decided to divide the space into a sleeping area and a walk-in closet. A sliding barn door separates the two, giving the owner privacy when getting ready every morning. The walk-in closet looks sleek with the handleless cabinets but warmth is maintained because of the wooden finish.

You can also get creative with hooks and rods. Use these to display your chosen outfit, a favorite dress, or simply to organize your clothes.

Since the owners share the walk-in closet, the lady of the house had to edit her belongings to make sure their essentials can fit in the tight space. To keep the closet organized and picture-perfect, they placed a sturdy shelf and set a huge mirror against that wall that doubles as décor. With their own clothes and accessories serving as accents, the walk-in closet looks chic and personalized.

A quality shelf can go a long way when it comes to organizing your belongings. Make sure it fits in the available space and that it can handle the weight of your belongings.
