The Ultimate Walk-In Closet

This storage-packed walk-in closet creates an organized, stress-free environment for getting ready in the morning.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Closet Door Storage

      For this closet, savvy storage begins before stepping foot inside. Hats and other accessories are stashed on a canvas shelf that's mounted to back of the door. Larger items hang from orderly hooks just below the shelf.

    • Custom Closet Organization

      A semicustom closet system -- available at home improvement centers -- maximizes the storage potential of this standard 8x10-foot master closet. Drawers, shelves, pullouts, clothing rods, shoe racks, drawer organizers, and more accommodate all clothing necessities and accessories with ease. This do-it-yourself closet system rivals a high-end one but without the heavy price tag. Plus, it can be installed in a weekend.

    • Tidy Drawer Organizers

      Modular organizers sort socks and belts in this pullout tray. Each item has its own compartment, creating a clean look.

    • Hidden Laundry Storage

      Two joined door panels conceal a tilt-out hamper and mini laundry-prep station. A bag designated for delicate items and laundry essentials is stored on the shelf above for easy grab-and-go access.

    • Clutter-Stopping System

      Floor-to-ceiling shelving smoothly transitions from wall to wall, making the most of vertical and horizontal closet space. Clothing hangs from eco-friendly, durable bamboo hangers that can be personalized with monograms.

    • Clothes Hanger

      This specially designed hanger has holes to neatly display and store up to 10 scarves. The hanger puts scarf options in plain sight and eliminates rummaging through a drawer to find the perfect one.

    • Shoe Storage

      Shoes on slanted shelves -- held in place by a metal bar -- are easily accessible. This attractive display simplifies each morning's shoe selection.

    • Canvas Storage Boxes

      Zippered floral canvas boxes pack extra pillows, blankets, and other bed linens away. They're stylish, simple to use, and stackable.

    • Double Hanging Rods

      Stacked closet rods double storage space by maximizing the height of the closet. Shirts hang from the upper bar while skirts and longer blouses are hung below. Canvas storage boxes squeeze right in to small, deep shelves nearby.

      Vanity Shelf

      An open shelf functions as a mini grooming station inside the closet. The space features a mirror for applying finishing touches after dressing. A jewelry box, perfume, and a picture frame personalize the space.

      Drawer Labels

      Colorful rub-on labels clearly identify the contents inside each drawer. Labeling minimizes search time and ensures you'll return items to their proper storage space after use.

      Jewelry Drawer Organizers

      Jewelry and other accessories remain untangled and tidy thanks to drawer organizers. There's even enough room left to stash small clutch purses in the drawer.

      Built-In Storage

      This closet boasts built-in storage and smart features. Ties, pants, socks, and shoes each have designated storage spaces that cater to individual organizational needs. Multiple hanging sections keep shirts and pants separate and tidy.

      Charging Station Storage

      A drop-zone drawer features a charging station for cell phones and iPods and compartments for watches, sunglasses, and spare change. The charging station contains electronics and chargers in one safe and convenient space.
