Give Your Walk-In Closet a Makeover

A walk-in closet is not just a functional staple in a home, it is something wanted by most and typically shows up on the “must have” list of home buyers. An organized closet with all clothing and accessories easily in view and in one place, makes creating a “put together” look fast and simple. Most walk-ins are designed using the same generic metal framing or melamine shelves and basic cabinetry. With these closet upgrades, you will not only have a walk-in closet that is functional, but also will make others envious.

Clothing Storage

The first upgrade is incorporating wardrobe lifts into your hanging spaces. Wardrobe lifts are hanging space that can be installed into a cabinet, from the ceiling, or in any space to create layers of hanging space for increased vertical storage. You will simply hang your items and then use the movement bar to push the rack into the locking position. This upper level storage is idea for suit and sport coats or formal dresses or outfits that you might not need all the time. Signature Custom Cabinetry, Inc., offers wardrobe lifts that can be installed in a Morris Black designed cabinet or closet.

Another option for clothing storage is installing lighted closet rods. This is a must have for everyone, whether you have a regular closet or walk-in. Lighted closet rods contain strips of LED lights that will turn on and illuminate the clothing hanging below. It makes finding the right clothing piece easier as the lights are on the bottom of the rod and illuminate what is below. These are ideal for inside taller cabinets, dark spaces, or closets that are ready to be upgraded.

Shoe Storage

Since we talked about clothing, let’s now talk about shoe storage options. One thing that many struggle with walk-in closets is shoe storage space, or lack thereof. Take advantage of every inch of your space by incorporating a corner shoe rack that includes multiple lazy susans.

The second option is simple and effective, which is installing a shoe rail so shoes are kept in place. This is ideal for flats, heels, or men’s shoes as they stop the shoe from falling while not relying on a small heel to keep it in position, like a traditional shoe rack.

Tie it Together

Ladies, don’t forget about the men with a plethora of ties. Hafele offers a tie rack that holds 20 ties at your fingertips. The best part? It easily swings under your clothing rack for sleek storage.
