Does your apartment or condominium fall short on storage?  Be creative and find spaces not being used.  When the wall is showing in a closet, that is a space to claim.  Make room for your Armani by double hanging rods and adding shelves to empty walls.

Turn empty walls...

Into room for shoes, shirts, suits and ties.

 

If clothes are important to you, they deserve respect.  Make room for ties and they will brighten up your closet.

Never double stack ties on racks, they get lost. Pull out systems are so convenient.

A shallow linen closet could be converted to just the right depth for showcasing your haberdashery.

if the depth is not enough for linens...

Add shelves for your shoes

Keep things in your home where they are used.  If you press your wardrobe daily, find a home for the iron or steamer in the master closet.

And the ironing board can rest behind the closet door.

Hooks are easy additions for belts and bath robes.  By making good decisions and thinking “outside the box” or “container”, you might be surprised how much room you are missing!

Often a new space is recreated by making modifications to existing structures.  This project is a prime example of how to make an elegant home for your wardrobe without having to start from scratch.  The master closet was redesigned by Chris McKenry and organized by our Get It Together LA! team. 

An obtrusive full length tailor’s mirror was removed from the island allowing the feeling of more space.  Then, the white-painted surface of the island was replaced with a stained Burch top to match the woodwork in the adjoining hall.

More hanging space was created on the back wall and a lovely framed glass cabinet was added for extra storage and display.  The existing handbag cabinet was updated with the same matching framed glass doors giving a beautiful display of Prada, Rodo, St. John’s, Tod’s and Louis Vuitton evening and handbags.

And there is never enough room for designer footwear.  Not true now.  We made room for Micheal Kors, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta and Salvatore Ferragmo by adding shelves perpendicular to the existing shoe display. 

The chandelier and wall coverings were by Preston Lee Design.  Now this dressing room has form, function and finesse.  Organizing does just make life easy, it makes it spectacular.
