While most of us dream of a Carrie Bradshaw-esque closet (and her complete shoe collection) the size and accessories are not always an option. Enter master closet designer and founder of LA Closet Design, Lisa Adams. Here, she shows us how to bring the high-end touches of a no-cost-spared closet into your home, without the big hit to your wallet.
Use Gold Paint
Nothing says luxe like metallic. Paint the metal trim of your closet or your ceiling for flair.
Bring in an ottoman
If you have the room, add a sitting area. “This could either be for the use of lounging or for the basic necessity of putting on your shoes,” says Adams. “The sitting area makes the closet a true living space,even if you can only squeeze in a small round ottoman or pouf.”
Add mirror accents
Choose a full-length mirror or a framed mirror to fill dead space suggests Adams. It will make the room feel bigger and add a different material element to the room.
Replace your knobs and handles
Decorative knobs are the perfect accessory to show your personality and unique style
Add Faux Fur
It not only looks luxe but feels luxe. Faux fur rugs are easy to find (and animal friendly!) and are a great way to add something soft and chic underfoot.
Use crown molding
It’s like a great frame for your closet. Plus, in a small space, it’s completely affordable.
Choose great lighting
The right light is EVERYTHING. Not only will a small chandelier look high-end,
Get the right
The easiest and quickest way to change the look of your closet. “You must find the hanger you like and get rid of all
Customize your jewelry drawers
Say goodbye to tangled necklaces and only being able to find one earing. A well-organized jewelry drawer puts your best pieces on display (plus what says luxury more than beautiful jewels?!)
Add acrylic shelf dividers
An instant elegance killer? Clutter! Use shelf dividers to keep purses and stacks of sweaters tidy and vertical.
Install pull-out valet hooks
“Inexpensive and a must-have,” says Adams. Optimize your closet by making the most of unused wall space.
