This storage-packed walk-in closet creates an organized, stress-free environment for getting ready in the morning.
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.
Modular organizers sort socks and belts in this pullout tray. Each item has its own compartment, creating a clean look.
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.
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.
Shoes on slanted shelves -- held in place by a metal bar -- are easily accessible. This attractive display simplifies each morning's shoe selection.
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.
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.
Ties stay neat and wrinkle-free with this battery-operated tie rack. With the touch of a button, the rack rotates, making it easy to find a favorite.
A wooden pullout trouser rack holds 10 pairs of freshly pressed pants. The attractive display lets you clearly see each pair. The dowels lift out for easy access.
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.
A pullout valet bar keeps outfits close at hand when dressing or pressing. Hang freshly pressed shirts while choosing the tie that coordinates best.
This built-in ironing board saves floor space and stows vertically between cabinet units. Shelves nearby keep an iron, water mister, and linen spray handy.
