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.

Ryan Benoit and Chantal Aida Gordon of The Horticult threaded stainless steel rods through terra-cotta pots and suspended them from horizontal surfaces. These striking vertical gardens can punch up the smallest balconies and patios.
Long bars across the front of this vanity mimic the drawer pulls, but serve as handy towel rods. Vertical lines are a subtle design theme carried through in the backsplash, window shade and floor tiles.
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.
