As a follow-up to our "Dressing Room Bling" post last month, we're showcasing the jewelry island located in the glamorous dressing room and walk-in closet we installed in a client's home in Doylestown, PA.
You dream of waking up and picking out that day’s outfit from a roomy walk-in closet. It’s well-lit and comfortable, almost like you’re hanging out in a fashionable boutique.
That’s the dream. The reality is that you keep your clothes in a cozy little wall closet. These closets may not be as generous as a walk-in, but they can still fill a functional need.
Let’s hear what closet designers have to say about organizing and maximizing your wall closet space.
First of all, to open a closet and find what you need fast, things should be uncluttered, visible, and easy to access. Gain control by taking stock of your closet's contents. You'll want to pull everything out and divide into categories, such as sweaters, pants, dresses, blouses, and jackets. Keep only what you use and love. Be merciless in judgment — throw out clothes that are stained, torn, pilled, or out of shape. Get rid of fashion mistakes you bought but never wore, and that oversupply of painting or gardening clothes.
