Have you ever dreamed of turning your overstuffed closet into a design masterpiece? With Closet Envy at your side you can have your very own showcase closet.
Storage vs Showcase
The first step in creating the closet of your dreams is to shift your mindset. Yes, any closet should be all about storage. But in a showcase closet your favorite items aren’t just stored, they are on display.
One key element to creating a stunning closet is to utilize plenty of space. Rather than crowding your closet with as many things as it can hold, give each item the space it needs to shine. Highlight your favorite shoes, purses, and accessories by putting them on display. Leave several low shelves available for housing your shoe collection. Add vertical shelves to hold your favorite purses and bags. For items that need to be stored but aren’t as display worthy consider a collection of decorative boxes. That way your items are still easily accessible without cluttering up your shelves.
Fashion Meets Function
Your showcase closet can be just as pretty underneath the surface as it is on the outside. The more organized your closet is, the easier it will be to keep everything neat and clean.
Divided drawers are the perfect place to feature your favorite accessories. Just because they aren’t on display for everyone to see doesn’t mean they can’t be displayed just for you. It’s so much easier to find the perfect necklace, bracelet, or cufflinks when they are given their own storage space.
Your closet is not the only showcase space in the house. You might also want a way to showcase your favorite outfit. A Valet pull-out bar is a great way to hang the outfit you plan to wear tomorrow, or the dry cleaning you still need to put away. Just the word valet makes you sound Downton Abbey kind of fancy. We all definitely need more of that kind of luxury in our lives.
Another tip for making your closet look streamlined is to use matching hangers. When all the hangers in your closet are identical your eye sees it as uniform and clean. This allows the rest of your closet to be the showstopper rather than focusing on a row of mismatched hangers.
Design and Lighting
The last thing to consider when creating your showcase closet is the design and lighting. Your dream closet is the perfect place to indulge in your favorite finishes and elements. This is a space that’s just for you. Which is why Mansion Global encourages you to add luxe touches.
Luxe touches include full-length mirrors, chandeliers, in-cabinet lighting, fabric drawer inserts, an island with a cosmetic refrigerator, safe and/or coffee station, packing tables, and beautiful decorative hardware. Seating, in the way of ottomans, poufs, a settee, sofa, or bench, can elevate the look and feel.
There are so many ways to add high end design elements to turn your walk in closet into a stunning showcase.
Some design details, like lighting, may seem small but they have a huge impact. Shelving with back lighting or up lights really add that extra wow factor to your display. Lots of bright white light can help you pull together the perfect outfit. Light also helps you dial down the clown factor when applying makeup. Let your closet help you showcase your good looks!
