Have Fun with Storage - Make it fun to stay organized. Treat kids' closets to practical touches that mimic their room's decorating theme or play to their favorite interests. This young sports fan, for instance, has room in his walk-in closet to display favorite ball caps. A decorative border of helmets and balls lines the ceiling. And he can even change sneakers on a locker room-style bench. Be creative and play up the theme, installing a basketball hoop above a clothes hamper, for example.
Great use of space. If clothes will hang on both sides, ideally the width should be 7 feet. This will allow a 3-foot path down the center of the closet for moving around. Resist the temptation to line the back wall with rods, which tends to take away from space, because the rods have to overlap in the corners.
The homeowner wanted a closet large enough to hold her entire wardrobe, including shoes and accessories. In response, the designers created a well-organized French-inspired space that concealed her entire wardrobe behind closed doors—including a special closet just for shoes. A large center island and glass-front shelves and drawers keep handbags and accessories organized.
Because the homeowner loves detail, the designers covered every inch of her dressing suite with luxurious fabrics and finishes. As a result, accessories stored in this space enjoy the ultimate indulgence: drawers are lined with silk and trimmed with gimp braid. In fact, it’s the same silk the designers used for the room’s window treatments.
