The primary bedroom in your home is likely the place you spend most of your time—even if much of that time is spent sleeping! Next to your office, there aren’t many rooms you’ll spend eight hours a day in. This is why it’s so important to make these spaces comfortable and well-organized! For your master bedroom, this includes making sure your closets are beautiful, efficient, and well-organized. With that in mind, today we’re going to share our top walk-in closet ideas to help you make this space as beautiful and functional as possible.
Walk-In Closet Ideas and Designs
So, if you’re looking for inspiration for the walk-in closets in your bedroom, you’re in the right place! And of course, when it comes to bringing these ideas to life, trust JB Closets to make your vision a reality.
Organize Your Storage by Type
Have you ever heard the saying, “A place for everything and everything in its place?” When it comes to walk-in closet storage, this is incredibly true! When everything has a designated space, it makes it much easier to keep your closet organized.
To do this, we recommend considering organizing your storage by type. For example, creating a designated space for shoe storage, jewelry storage, and so on.
Consider Speciality Storage Solutions
Who says a closet can only have hanging rods and shelves? The beauty of a walk-in closet is you have more space to utilize. At the same time, you have more options for specialty storage available to you. Depending on the particular items you intend to store in your closet, you can also consider specialty storage systems.
So, if you have a special collection of hats you’ve never been sure how to store, this is your time to let that collection shine. There are all kinds of walk-in closet ideas that can suit a variety of unique storage needs.
Here are a few examples:
- Clear storage for jewelry or sunglasses to make these items easy to find
- Storage for seasonal items so they can be tucked away for months at a time without disrupting the flow of the space
- Special collection storage solutions for hats, shoes, and other items
When you have plenty of space to work within your walk-in closet, consider adding seating. Almost instantly, this makes the space more cozy and comfortable. Whether it’s a small bench or a plush chair, this helps make the space look more inviting. Even better, it’s also a convenient spot to sit and put shoes on or any time you need to take a load off.
Solid Surfaces for Folding and Organizing
We have all had “that chair” in the corner of our room. The one that becomes a catch-all for laundry, purses, and other items at some point. But when you add an island or another countertop surface to your walk-in closet? Then you’re giving yourself the ideal spot to fold and sort clean clothes so they aren’t left where they shouldn’t be.
Not only are these surfaces ideal for laundry purposes, but they’re also a convenient place to layout items for the next day.
Built-In Laundry Hampers
Speaking of that chair that acts as a catch-all for your laundry, why not go ahead and include built-in laundry hampers in your walk-in closet for another way to keep your space organized? A standalone laundry basket is one thing, but when this item is built-in in your closet, it takes up less space and helps you keep your space in order.
Utilize All Vertical Space
Although this post is centered around walk-in closet ideas, this next tip applies to both walk-in and reach-in closets: utilize every inch of vertical space!
Any time we meet with a new client and take a look at their current system, we tend to find a large amount of vertical space that simply hasn’t been utilized. In some cases, this means we can add a second hanging bar or add shelving at the top of the closet for seasonal items that don’t need to be accessed every day.
Floor-to-ceiling storage options quickly help you make use of every available inch. Before long, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without that storage in the first place.
Focus on Visibility
One of the challenges in many closets is not being able to easily see or access what you need. Then, you end up taking 20 items out just to find the one thing you really need. One way around this is strategically increasing the visibility in your closet.
Then, you can see what you need and grab it without taking out a bunch of other things in the process. Glass doors are an excellent way to do this. You can easily see what’s located where, and it also helps make the space look bigger at the same time!
Maximize Natural Lighting
In any space in your home, lighting is the key to making the space look as big as possible. So, even if your walk-in closet isn’t flush with extra room, you can make it seem even bigger if you use lighting to your advantage. Is there a window in your walk-in closet?
Do your best not to block it so you aren’t limiting the light in the space. If you don’t have a window, carefully consider the lighting options that will look the most natural in the space.
If you use this space to get dressed and ready, it makes sense to have at least one mirror in your closet. By doing so, you’re also helping reflect any light in the space and making the closet look bigger at the same time.
