Discover seven secrets to making your closet a fun and more than practical area of your home. From shelving to drawers it’s important to create a room for all your belongings so that your experience in the closet doesn’t have to be like mine –
I push my back into it, digging my right elbow in the mounds of polyester, cotton, and a weird blend in between. My left hand holds up a blouse precariously slipping off its wire hanger. I manage to work it in between the gray and white sections of my wardrobe. I color coordinate, but other than that, it’s all a pathetic mess with hangers not evening making it to the bar.

As they defy gravity by sheer force of other gravity defying clothes, then all is well. Whoa, please don’t look down. The shoes are all attached in pairs, but the piles of them may be season coordinated but finding the summer pair at the bottom of the pile, lets just say closets have been on mind.

For today we are going to sketch out the top design essentials for a closet spa.

Imagine having enough closet space to have nearly two inches between each hanging item. Or having enough drawer space that your stacked and neatly Gap approved folded clothing is manageable.

Drawers and shelves of different dimensions, rods at different heights so that you can hang your beautiful wardrobe to display it to perfection.
