A Boutique Closet

A client in Frisco, Texas wanted a “boutique feel” to her closet. She imagined shopping in her own closet daily, while still having that feeling of walking into a beautiful boutique.

One feature she wanted was a lot of lighting. Bright lights paired with simple white cabinetry add to the boutique feel we were aiming for. Glass knobs and a chandelier bring a classy element to the entire space.

This client had a lovely jewelry collection and wanted the ability to see her pieces when getting ready in the morning. To achieve this we added a glass top on the dresser with grey suede inserts. Now her jewelry has a lovely home and adds to the design features all at the same time.

She also had a lot of beautiful handbags to display. Glass fronted cabinets make her purses a focal point in the closet.

The client chose to buy all white hangers to match her gorgeous closet. This makes things look streamlined and really adds to the organized look!

Slanted shoe shelves with ribbon lighting are the perfect way to display those kickin’ shoes! A decorative shoe fence in the matching finish to the closet accessories adds another layer of sophistication.

One last hidden feature is a sliding pull out mirror. It tucks away when not in use. How fancy is that?!! We also installed a valet rod to allow our client to set out her clothes when she is deciding what to wear.

Closet Organization by Color vs Item

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you’ve done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It’s time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

By Color

Have you always loved the look of a rainbow? Do you think in color? Perhaps color organization is for you. My Domaine suggests using those skills you learned in elementary art class to get started organizing.

Once you’ve got everything sorted into separate categories, organize clothes by color. Remember that grade-school acronym, Roy G. Biv? Now is the time to use it! Organize by color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Keep white and black on opposite ends.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

One benefit of color organization is that it allows you to get a clear picture of what colors you have. Is your wardrobe heavy in blues and light on…anything else? Color coding allows you to see at a glance if you have way to many items in one color family. On the plus side, it also helps you see what items would go well together.

By Item

If you literally cringe at the thought of having pants mixed in with shirts and sweaters then perhaps organizing by item would be a better fit. CNN Money has these tips to share.

Organize by silhouette, not color. “No one wakes up saying, ‘I am having a purple day,'” said Amy Salinger, a personal stylist. “It’s more about who you will be seeing that day, how you’re feeling and the weather.”

She recommended organizing a wardrobe based on silhouette and then by style. So all the pants go together and then that section is broken down by type: skinny, wide leg, trouser, etc.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

When you organize by type and then silhouette you can easily find the items that fit the occasion or the weather. That is a big plus for busy people, or for those of us that like to hit snooze 18 times and are always running late in the morning!

Why not both?

If you are drawn to the look of a color coordinated closet, but like the functionality of organization by item why not incorporate both? First sort your clothing by type. Hang all the shirts together, and the pants together. Then within the category you can organize by color. It turns out you can have your rainbow cake and eat it too!

Prepare Your Closet Canvas

Before you jump in to organizing your clothes why not take some time to prepare the canvas? A new closet remodel would highlight your colorful and categorized organization in a beautiful way. With our help, your clothes will become the showpieces they have always deserved to be. And you will feel like royalty each morning as you are getting ready for your day.

Closet Organization on a Budget

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don’t have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you’ll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Purging is Free

Here’s some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that one of the biggest steps to organizing your closet is to purge. We’ve shared steps to cull your closet before. This step is the most time consuming, and likely the least fun, but it’s essential to the organization process. The good news is that this process won’t cost you a cent. It may cost you a few hours of your precious time, but the sweat equity will be worth every penny (saved).

Hanging Space

Did you know that your hangers may be causing some of your organizational issues? All You shares why.

Hangers ensure that clothes stay wrinkle-free but they’re often poorly designed and can take up too much space. There are ingenious space-savers that keep your clothes crisp without all the hang-ups.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Once you have your items purged you will know how many hangers you need. This is a great item to invest some of your hard earned cash into. Find some slim hangers that will consolidate the space you need to hang your clothes. It’s an added bonus if your hangers have a way to daisy chain them. This will allow you to utilize some of the vertical space as well.

Repurpose Items

When organizing on a budget it helps to think outside the box. There’s no need to shop closet supply specialty items. There are ways to repurpose less expensive items to create simple storage solutions. Life Storage suggests creating your own PVC pipe organization system.

I rarely gave thought to the existence of PVC piping before I began scouring the web in search of new and cheap methods of organizing. Now I know how relevant these plastic tubes really are. They can be used pretty much anywhere for storage, because they come in so many sizes. As far as the closet goes, I wish I’d thought of PVC earlier! Stacking some larger diameter pieces makes for a simple—and really attractive—shoe organizer. Plus, you can add on as your shoe collection grows. Set side by side in a drawer, they make easy dividers for your small pieces, from ties and scarves to socks and underwear.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Tension rods or bathroom towel rods are another inexpensive way to get organized. Check out these ideas from Life Storage.

Tension rods are a lifesaver when it comes to organizing any room in the house. You can organize your entire closet with them! High heeled shoes can hang from a single rod, while flats and tennis shoes can rest atop two tension rods side by side. It’s easy to organize your scarves in an unused nook. And using s-hooks and a tension rod makes it easy to keep your purses or jewelry in order. Is your closet a reach-in with space on either side of the door that’s annoyingly empty, yet unusable? A couple of tension rods can make that space useful in an instant.

Consider other household items that could be repurposed to fit your closet storage needs. Gather up things like baskets, bins, tubs, or shoe boxes to begin organizing your closet. You might just find that you already have the items you need to create a beautifully organized masterpiece.

It’s Not As Expensive As You Think

You may think that a custom closet is out of reach for your budget. It might surprise you to know the true cost of your dream closet. It never hurts to schedule a free consultation. Perhaps you’ll find that closet is in your budget after all!

Jewelry and Purses Organization

Jewelry and purses and accessories… oh my! Does it feel like your accessories are slowly taking over your closet? And yet, you can’t help picking up the next adorable item in the new color of the year? It’s ok, we can help with your jewelry and purses organization.

Get Bejeweled

There are many ways to store your jewelry. It all depends on the space you have and the type of jewelry you prefer. Before you begin organizing, lay out all of the jewelry you own. This is a great time to pass on items that you no longer use or wear. Once you know how much jewelry you need to store, and what type it is, you can design the perfect organizational solution.

Do you have mostly rings, bracelets, and earrings? Do you have a drawer system in your closet? Then add drawer dividers to store your favorite jewels. You can get custom designed dividers, or you can DIY your own with a simple silverware organizer. Put your most used items in an easy to reach drawer and then add the remaining items to the back of the drawer or the next available drawer space.

Are you a necklace-a-holic? Have some extra wall space? Consider using a series of hooks to hang all those gorgeous jewels. This organization style has two benefits. One: your necklaces will no longer be a tangled mess! Two: you can easily see what you have, which makes it so much easier to decide what to wear.

Do you have a few items you wear day in and day out? Better Homes & Gardens has this suggestion to make every day easier.

Stow your everyday jewelry in plain sight near your getting-ready station to make it easy to grab your favorite accessories. Keep necklaces knot-free by hanging them on a makeup mirror or a wall-mount hook. Stow the smaller stuff in decorative trays, dishes, or bowls that are big enough so pieces won’t intermix. Keep a small vessel on your nightstand as a safe place to stow the earrings or necklaces you forgot to put away before getting under the covers.

Bag It Up

When you are getting ready to head out the door to you feel like a grocery store clerk? You may not ask “paper or plastic” but we’re guessing you debate “shoulder” or “crossbody” or “tote” or “clutch” or…or…or. If you’ve got more bags that there are months of the year, then it’s time to find an organization solution that works!

Jewelry and purses and accessories... oh my! Does it feel like your accessories are slowly taking over your closet? And yet, you can't help picking up the next adorable item in the new color of the year? It's ok, we can help with your jewelry and purses organization.

First think about how you think about bags. Say that 10 times fast! What we mean is, consider how you categorize bags in your mind. Do you think of them by color? Or by type? Or by size?  Once you know how you search for your bag you will know how to store those bags!

If you search for a bag that will match or coordinate with your outfit, then organize by color! Use a series of cubbies to store your bags where you can see each one. You could also use a bookshelf or the shelf above your closet rod to line up bag after bag.

If you look for bags by type then store them that way as well. Keep all of your clutch bags together in magazine boxes, hang your shoulder bags or crossbody bags where they are easy to use. Good Housekeeping has this suggestion for hanging bags.

Grab a shower hook! Bent to the side, these bathroom staples keep your bags off the floor.

Have a preschooler at home? They can help you organize your bags by size. Biggest to littlest all in a row. Education and free labor all in one. That’s a win win in our book!!

Accessorize Yourself

Are you wondering what other accessories there could possibly be after jewelry and purses? Well…belts, hats, sunglasses, and scarves of course! The items may be different but many of the strategies are the same. Belts, hats, and scarves can all be hung on a series of wall hooks. You can use the back of the closet door to add a hat rack. Or add a tension rod and hang those pesky accessories with shower hooks.

Sunglasses are a whole other ball of wax. You can use a drawer organizer to store those shades with your favorite bling. We also love this sunglasses solution from Cupcakes and Cashmere.

I have quite a few sunglasses, but I can never keep track of them since they’re always strewn about in random spots throughout my place. Yesterday I created a more streamlined solution, while still adhering to the minimalist vibe of my bedroom. I used an extra frame from a recent project (that’s painted the same color as my wall) and used it to corral all of my eyewear. It took only a few minutes to complete!

Sunglasses turned wall art! Now that’s a smart idea!

Closet Organization Hacks for Renters

Renters have the same organizational needs as everyone else, but they have one additional hurdle. Most renters can not put holes in the wall to add organization pieces. Here are our favorite closet organization hacks for renters!

Repurpose Furniture

While you can’t install closet systems in a rental, you can add furniture to your closet. IHeartOrganizing has these suggestions to share.

Utilize a tall bookcase as a temporary closet.  With adjustable shelving, boots and shoes are able to be stored below while a few hooks above offer hanging storage.

Renters have the same organizational needs as everyone else, but they have one additional hurdle. Most renters can not put holes in the wall to add organization pieces. Here are our favorite closet organization hacks for renters!

Take a look around your house to see what furniture might be repurposed  to serve as organization for your messy closet. Use a bookshelf to store folded clothes, or to store shoes. Use baskets on the bookshelf to give you additional storage solutions. You could also add a small dresser or stackable drawers to organize your lingerie, your t-shirts, or your pajamas. Lean a ladder against the wall to add additional hanging space, or simply as a spot to dry your hand washed clothes.

Removable Hooks

It’s true that renters can’t drill holes in the wall, but there is another solution for adding hooks to your closet. Unclutterer loves to use removable hooks.

Apply removable items. I am a huge fan of utilitarian and decorative removable hooks. They’re great for getting so many things up and off the floor.

There are several brands of removable hooks to choose from. Be sure to consider the weight of the items you want to hang. This will determine which hooks you use. You can even find fun hooks to add a bit of whimsy to your apartment closet.

Hooks can help you store hats and belts, but they are also great for organizing accessories. Do you have lots of jewelry? Or scarves? Designate a wall to hang several hooks to keep your accessory stash within easy reach. Hanging accessories also add a lovely design element to your closet. Bonus!

Hanging Organizers

Hanging organizers can offer storage solutions without causing you to break your renters agreement. Unclutterer has tips for using hanging organizers.

Use existing hardware to support alternatives. Hang a closet doubler from a rod to extend hanging area in the vertical space. Over-the-door storage pockets, baskets, and specialty items can be helpful.

A closet doubler will…well, double your hanging space. If you have a lot of clothes, this may be a great solution for you. Hang your summer clothes on one rod and your winter clothes on the other. Be sure to leave some single hanging space for long dresses or pants. Over-the-door storage organizers can hold not only shoes, but also sweaters or t-shirts or hats. You could also find hanging drawers to add organizational solutions. Drawers are a great way for storing socks or pajamas. Consider what items are causing you organization strife and then decide which type of organizer will work best for you. There are many ways to create your own organizational solutions.

How to Utilize Closet Corners

Does your closet have a few dark holes of wasted space? Think about the pesky areas where two walls meet, the dreaded corners. Learn how to utilize closet corners!

Adjust Closet Rods

Many builders grade closets have overlapping closet rods. This design creates awkward corners that are difficult to utilize. What can you do to fix this overlap issue? Organizing Junkie has a few suggestions on how to fix this problem.

For a quick fix, shorten one of the closet rods by at least 24” and then reinforce the hanging rod with a closet support bracket if needed.  One closet rod will stop short of the adjacent wall, creating not only more hanging space but also making it easier to see and access clothes on both sides.

Does your closet have a few dark holes of wasted space? Think about the pesky areas where two walls meet, the dreaded corners. Learn how to utilize closet corners!

Instead of overlapping the closet rods, extend one closet rod all the way to the wall and allow the other to stop short. Be sure there is approximately 12 inches of empty wall space between the edge of the closet rod and the fixture on the next wall, whether it’s another closet rod or a beautiful shelf full of shoes. We vote for the shelf full of shoes! It’s like art for your closet!

Use Corner Cabinets

Another design option for your closet corners is a corner cabinet. You may like the look of two cabinets straight cabinets side by side, or you may prefer an L shaped cabinet in the corner of your closet. Either way, a cabinet gives you many storage options in your closet. Baskets or bins are the perfect way to store a variety of items. Or you can use this space to display bags and hats.

Creative Corner Solutions

Adjusting closet rods or using corner cabinets are common answers to the closet corner conundrum. But HGTV shared a unique solution.

Even in our homes, corners are generally considered dead space, but in closets they can be utilized in a surprising way to free up space for additional shelves and compartments. Lisa Adams, CEO and designer of LA Closet Design, suggests incorporating a corner carousel into your closet design to really utilize a corner that would otherwise go unused.

Picture it like a spiral staircase for your clothes. Not only would this allow you more storage space, it would be a fabulous design feature. Like the crowning jewel of your closet!

Consider using hooks for any awkward wall space in your closet. They will add useful organization in a heartbeat.

Closet Islands

You’ve been browsing photos of dream closets on Pinterest. Have the closet islands been catching your eye? Are you wondering if there is any way you could incorporate a closet island into your space? Here are our best tips for deciding if a closet island is right for you.

You've been browsing photos of dream closets on Pinterest. Have the closet islands been catching your eye? Are you wondering if there is any way you could incorporate a closet island into your space? Here are our best tips for deciding if a closet island is right for you.

Do you have enough space?

The first step is to determine if you have enough space for a closet island. If you can stand in your closet and touch all four walls without moving your feet then you probably don’t have room for a closet island. If you if your closet is tad bit larger than a postage stamp then you may have the room you need. The first step is to decide how large of an island you want in your closet.

You've been browsing photos of dream closets on Pinterest. Have the closet islands been catching your eye? Are you wondering if there is any way you could incorporate a closet island into your space? Here are our best tips for deciding if a closet island is right for you.

One tip is to use paper or tape to mask off the island foot print. Spend a week or so walking around that space and see what you think. Is there still enough room in your closet to move? Should the island be bigger or smaller? Would another location work better. Live with your options before you spend your hard earned dollars on a permanent solution.

Island or Peninsula?

The geography buffs out there know the difference between an island and a peninsula, but for the rest of us here’s a quick cheat sheet. An island has space all the way around, whereas a peninsula is attached on one end and only has space on three sides. Got it? Now while I’ve got you dreaming of a beach vacation, let’s talk closets!

You've been browsing photos of dream closets on Pinterest. Have the closet islands been catching your eye? Are you wondering if there is any way you could incorporate a closet island into your space? Here are our best tips for deciding if a closet island is right for you.

A peninsula gives you a bit more walking space in the closet while still offering the storage solutions of an island. Both have great features and allow you a counter space along with the storage.

The main reason to choose an island over a peninsula is floor space. A peninsula will work better in a smaller closet, but if you have the space you can go all out with a gorgeous island. We think it’s time to make your closet dreams come true!

DIY your own!

If you are a tiny bit handy (we’re talking follow step by step assembly directions kind of handy) then you can DIY your own island. Many furniture items can be used as closet island. Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design shared these tips with the Today Show.

You don’t have to spring for the crazy costs of fully custom built-ins in order to have a perfectly organized space. “Think about flipping cabinets or shelving units on their heads, literally — [they] could make great island pieces in your closet,” Adams says.

One way she suggests getting a closet island for less? An Ikea bookshelf turned on its side, as Adams did for influencer-blogger Chriselle Lim. “Ta-da! You instantly have an island with cubbies,” Adams says. “Islands are functional and beautiful in a closet — to fold and pack while displaying items on the top

You've been browsing photos of dream closets on Pinterest. Have the closet islands been catching your eye? Are you wondering if there is any way you could incorporate a closet island into your space? Here are our best tips for deciding if a closet island is right for you.

Think about the footprint and height you want before you head out shopping. Then look for furniture that fits. A bookshelf on it’s side, a dresser, a bathroom vanity, or kitchen cabinet all have the potential to serve as your island base. You will likely want at least two of whatever you choose so that you can put the furniture pieces back to back. Then all it takes is a top to create your very own closet island.

DIY Closet Organization

Have you been longing for a closet redo but its not in the budget? Here are some accessories to buy for your own DIY closet organization.

Divide and Conquer

Drawers can become a black hole of stuff.  Digging through those drawers trying to find your favorite shirt is a frustrating endeavor to be sure. Organize those drawers with dividers or DIY your own. iHeart Organizing suggests up-cycling shoe boxes.

Shoe boxes can also be an amazingly helpful tool.  I reuse them to keep a dresser full of clothes organized.

Have you been longing for a closet redo but its not in the budget? Here are some accessories to buy for your own DIY closet organization.

You can organize t-shirts, socks, or lingerie with your own DIY drawer dividers. Conquer that mess once and for all.

Hang It Up

A great way to add storage to any closet is to utilize the wall space. You, of course, use the closet rods to hang things in a closet. Adding a double rod is perfect for storing extra clothes, but what about all of those accessories? That’s where the wall comes in!

Do you have lots of tights or leggings that need a new home? Lana Red Studio suggests attaching clothespins to the wall.

I was cleaning out my closet and was very irritated by the fact that my tights didn’t fit anywhere in the closet. I keep my socks, underwear and stockings in separate boxes in my closet, but my tights just kept piling out of the box.
But suddenly I remembered all those tutorials on how to organize your jewelry and thought, why not use a similar method for my tights?!
I still had these wooden clothes pegs and found that they were just perfect for this project! I just simply glued the pegs to the side of my closet and used them to hang my tights on.

We love this organization idea! Not to mention the fact that all those tights and leggings bring a colorful design element to your closet.

But what about your other accessories like scarfs, jewelry, belts, and purses? Who’d have thought that bathroom fixtures could be the answer? Overthrow Martha used just that!

If you’re like me then you hate it when your necklaces get tangled and you can’t find the accessories that you want! I really needed to do something about it, but it’s hard when you’re on a budget! I would have LOVED to do a closet makeover, but unless you’re willing to give me some money or I win the lotto, then that isn’t going to happen!

I really wanted to have my favorite items visible so I came up with the idea of using bathroom hardware to hang up my necklaces and bracelets.

Theres no reason you can’t use bathroom hardware for scarves and purses too! Add some S hooks and you’re in business. Turn those bathroom fixtures into fabulous closet organization!

Have you been longing for a closet redo but its not in the budget? Here are some accessories to buy for your own DIY closet organization.

Sort Your Stash

Your going to be shocked to hear this, but the first step is to sort and purge your supplies. Wait, what? That doesn’t surprise you? Maybe that’s because you’ve been reading our closet organization posts. We knew there was a reason we liked you so much!

Ok, back to your craft supplies. Gather up all your craft supplies in one place. That means you may need to walk around the house and pull supplies from all those nooks and crannies. You know you’ve got markers and crayons in random spots all over the place. When you have corralled your supplies in one space its a good idea to sort your items into categories. Then you can begin to determine how you want to organize.

This is also a great time to purge supplies that are dried out, almost gone, or simply items you don’t like any more. You can trash things that are too old to use, and donate things you don’t like to a local school.

Bins, and Baskets, and Drawers…Oh My!

Now that you have a sense of the different categories you need to store, and the amount of supplies you have, it’s time to start thinking of storage solutions. Bins, baskets and drawers are a great way to house your favorite art supplies. Some storage items work better than others. Open bins and baskets are perfect for over sized supplies such as yarn, fabric pieces, and other sewing pieces. These baskets and bins can sit on a shelf and allow you to easily grab what you need.  Closed bins are just right for supplies that can spill. Think about things like colored pencils, markers, paints, scissors, etc. Once you have your items stored you may want to label each bin. This step makes it easy to find your favorite supplies at a glance. Drawers are another wonderful option for storing your supplies. Particularly when the supplies are the kind that don’t need to be mobile. If its an item you only use one or two of at a time then consider using a drawer system.

Up the Wall

If you have wall space in your closet a system like the Omni Track Wall is the perfect way to store unusually shaped supplies. This is an awesome solution for storing wrapping paper or ribbon. You can also store your crafting tools with a system like this. Turn your craft supplies into a lovely focus wall in your closet. Pretty and organized supplies seems like the perfect way to celebrate Craft Month!
