Plastic bins and tubs are one solution for storing a collection of fashion dolls, but there are other options. In this closet, a women's slide-out shoe rack has cleverly been used for display storage of a group of fashion dolls. The "arms" secure each figure to the rack, which keeps all the dolls in plain sight and within easy reach.
Bring new life to your old household items. Amanda of A Lovely Place to Land transformed an old wooden thread rack into a clever storage solution for kids' shoes. Display the rack on a dresser or mount it on a wall to save space. Arrange shoes by type and color to make it easy to find what you need.
In this spacious and organized walk-in closet, pullout shoe shelves allow you to see shoes at the back of the shelf while also taking advantage of the closet's depth so you can store two to three rows of shoes together. Similarly, pullout tie trays allow you to see all of the ties in one glance because they are organized into separate compartments.
In this glamorous walk-in closet, a central island provides drawer storage while hanging racks line the two side walls. In the back, shelves and shelves of shoe racks are a fashionista's dream come true.
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.
This spacious closet features a white shelving unit with a shoe rack and plenty of hanging space. A white island with dark countertops sits in the middle of the closet for a convenient place to set necessities and provides extra storage space.
Luxury closets are not just for ladies. The other half of this elegant walk-in closet is specifically designed for him. With rich, dark woodwork, this space has a more masculine touch to it; however, there is just as much room for organizing things in his closet as there is in hers. Hanging racks accommodate all of his suits and shirts, while a floor to ceiling shoe rack gives him easy access to all of his favorite pairs. To light this well-ordered closet, easily customizable track lighting has been installed to shine a light on his favorite things.
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.
Making the most of the vertical space in this closet, sleek black shelves hold purses and accessories. Racks underneath are perfect for stowing shoes, and four separate bars provide plenty of storage for hanging clothes.
