If you have a lot of clothes that require life on hangers, devote an entire wall to clothing rods to free up space for surrounding shelves and storage solutions. In this walk-in, a majority of the clothes are neatly hung on the back wall, while folded pants, sweaters and shoes are housed on shelves along the side.
Multi-level clothing rods maximizes the real estate for your hanging wardrobe. Decorative touches are kept to a minimum – fresh-cut flowers and globe pendant lights – keeping all eyes on the clothing and accessories.
Keep a child’s things nice and neat in this built-in closet created by Tailored Living. Drawers, shelves, an accessible hamper and a clothing rod eliminate the need for bulky furniture in the room. A decluttered bedroom makes for pleasant dreams.
Dark cabinetry can bring a sense of elegance to your child's room. If you don't have enough closet space, an open cabinet system may be a better option. Install clothing rods vertically to save space and to give a boutique-style look to the space. Keep items you use every day at hand level for easily accessibility.

Sometimes you can simply eliminate a shelf or two and your storage space will expand significantly. Barriers and other dividers just create dead space within your closet, so the sooner you can remove them, the more space you can create for your essentials. Lisa Adams, CEO and designer of LA Closet Design, made a few cosmetic changes to this walk-in closet that make it feel more spacious and maximize the storage space. "In this closet I eliminated the vertical panels between individual cabinets/sections, creating an open, horizontal look. This opens up the space and makes it feel much bigger," Lisa says. "The use of L-shaped shelves and hanging rods at the corners, again, maximizes the corner spaces and makes the closet feel more customized and luxurious." Photo courtesy of LA Closet Design.
Yes, give your closet the royal treatment by combining drawers, shelves, clothing racks, a storage island and a hutch for the ultimate in walk-in closet luxury. Not only will your walk-in look like it came straight from a boutique, but you'll have an unlimited amount of storage space to work with, making the word "clutter" unutterable. In this suite system, the shelves are designed for those on-display items, whereas drawers are perfect for underwear, accessories and any other items ideal for concealment. With clothing racks separated, you can even organize your clothes according to function: casual, work, dressy.
Now this is one organized closet. On the left side, the closet houses all of the homeowner's casual clothes, with all of his work/business clothes on the right. The center shelving unit also keeps his casual and work shoes separated, making it easy to decipher where each appropriate item is when he needs it. Flat walnut veneer drawer fronts dress up the off-white shelving unit and offer additional storage for underwear and other accessories. Photo courtesy of California Closets.
Straining to reach those too-high spaces? This ingenious side mounted, pull-down closet rod lets you maximize closet space. It comes in three sizes and is adjustable from 34" to 50". Hang clothes you don’t need every day on it, then send them up for out-of-the-way storage.
Sometimes divide and conquer is the way to go. For this child's bedroom closet, a combination of hanging rods, cubbies, drawers and slide-out baskets helps store both clothes and toys. Use dead space under drawers for pull-out baskets that can provide a home for odd-shaped toys.
A rich Espresso finish creates a sophisticated style for this expansive walk-in closet. Hanging rods create zones for each type of clothing, and open shelves keep shirts, linens, and collections looking neat. Drawers, hutches, slanted shoe racks, and corner storage make the most of every square inch.
