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.

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.
