How to Take Your Walk-In Closet to the Next Level

March 12th, 2012 Bed and Bath

If you're lucky enough to have a walk-in closet connected to your bedroom, you may be wondering if you're maximizing this most coveted of spaces. Sure, you can use it as a place to store all of your things, but what if you'd like to make it a little more visually appealing as well? There's no reason you have to sacrifice style for function, or vice versa. Here are some tips on what you can do to have an exceptional walk-in closet, according to HGTV.

Perhaps the best thing you can do is introduce some color to the space. Most walk-in closets tend to be fairly bland in their presentation. Spend a weekend giving the walls a fresh coat of paint and you may see a huge difference when the job is done. One idea is to create a bit of contrast - paint the walls one color and use a complementary hue on hanging rods or cabinet doors.

According to Easy Closets, you're probably going to have a lot of clothing to place in the room. Do your best to keep it organized, both by type and color. Not only will this make it easier for you to find items as they're needed, but it will help give the space a more unified aesthetic. This is where cabinets and extra drawers will come in handy - items that are difficult to organize neatly like belts can easily be stowed out of sight, which will do a lot to improve the look of your walk-in closet.
