Closets Ideas & Inspiration
Closets don’t have to be all business and no play; there is an array of ways to add designer closets ideas for beauty and purpose. Whether you are in the market for a reach-in closet or a walk-in closet or an entire room as a closet, we’ve curated some of the best closet ideas to inspire your closet remodel or new build.
Here, we focus not only on organizational features but on those luxury and decorative features that make one’s heart sing. What fabulous features shall we include in your custom closet design?
Walk-In Closet Ideas
For those fortunate enough to have the space for a walk-in closet, there are limitless possibilities for making this space extraordinary.
- Turn an extra bedroom or odd space into a grand closet.
- Design your walk-in closet for your wardrobe—do you wear power suits for work, or do you work from home in super casual attire? You’ll want the configuration and features to match the clothing you own.
- Design your closet for your lifestyle—maybe you’re a runner and own 30 pairs of running shoes, or perhaps you are an outdoor enthusiast with loads of outerwear—you’ll want to design your closet to fit your items.
- If space permits, adding an island with a top in marble or glass and lingerie and jewelry drawers below is a must for your custom walk-in closet.
- Hang your purses on decorative hooks installed on the closet wall.
- Customize your closet with floor-to-ceiling shelving to house shoes, purses, and more.
- Include a vanity with a slipper chair or stool with a large mirror or mirrored wall above for primping and preening.
- Strategic placement of mirrors will provide the most advantageous self-view before you leave for the day.
- Add a unique decorative dresser or high boy.
- Install a lingerie cabinet.
- Consider a clothing rack like they use for fashion shows to display your gorgeous gowns or dressier pieces.
- A slipper chair, ottoman, or bench will also further add to the full function and delightful décor of your dream closet.
- Keep a pretty trash can with a lid in an inconspicuous corner.
- Use matching premium hangers in sleek wood for men and velvet-covered hangers for women.
- Wallpaper the entire closet in a stylish flocked paper or the backs of individual cabinets or cubbies.
- Paint an accent wall with your favorite vibrant color or soft hue.
- Hang shoes, scarfs, coats, or robes on the back of the closet door with decorative hangers.
- Display your most prized handbags, scarves, or shoes in built-in cabinets with clear or etched glass panel door fronts.
- Install a tri-fold mirror to view all your best angles and expand the space of your closet visually.
- Set up a beverage station for cocktails, water, juice, or coffee so you can libate while preparing for the day or bedtime.
- Hang your favorite floral or fashion style artwork.
- Add drapes or window coverings if you’re large walk-in has a window.
- Include a desk in your walk-in.
Reach-In Closet Ideas

- Double French doors make a terrific addition to a reach-in closet when installed to open outward.
- Bypass doors allow you to reach clothing easily on either side of the closet.
- Consider a pretty curtain on a decorative rod instead of a closet door.
- Make sure to include lots of rack space for those with work wardrobes.
- A multi-level display shelf works nicely for your most coveted bags, shoes, and jewelry.
