Angled Corner Closets and Long Dressers

First up, we have a small space with a slanted ceiling. The tiny room is easily transformed into a walk-in closet with a long, narrow dresser, built-in shelves, and hanging rods.

It’s perfect for the places in our house with odd angles, like the attic. You can definitely make the most of these areas and have your very own walk-in closet!

You could even squeeze in a spot for your vanity. Now, you have everything you need to get ready in one room!

Here, we can see the same design with modifications made to the closet space. Instead of having the dresser and closet face each other, the latter is built into the corner of the room.

This is a better choice for narrow areas with a bit more leg room. It also allows you to use more wall space to accommodate a longer closet.

It’s great how the closet plays into the angle of the ceiling to create a sleek and resourceful design.

The design efficiently makes use of every area of this small space to transform it into a space-optimized walk-in closet. 

You can fit a nice, full-length mirror right in the middle so you can check your appearance while getting ready.

This minimal walk-in closet hosts an innovative design with multiple modes of storage. One noteworthy feature is the tall revolving unit that’s ideal for keeping shoes, bags, and other items.

With this design, you won’t have a hard time reaching for your things at the back since they can be easily accessible with one spin!

Another neat thing about this closet is that there is also a ton of space for storage above it for items you don’t always reach for and just want to keep.

This modern and elegant walk-in closet keeps your clothes neat and is even a well-lit area with LED lights framing the ceiling.

It is a sleek and innovative design that is great for hanging up suits and formal wear. It maintains a sleek aesthetic and offers abundant storage for your clothing items.

The openness of this walk-in closet is perfect when you’re in a rush in the morning and need to grab a suit on the go. You won’t have to fuss too much since everything is displayed and arranged.

A jam-packed closet makes use of multiple hanging rods and storage units to keep clothes and other items arranged.

I love the large mirror mounted on the wall. It largens the space and gives you a full body view of your outfit when you try them on. 

If you are going to keep most of your clothes hung, I recommend choosing velvet or wired hangers so you can also maximize the space on the hanging racks and hang twice as many clothes.

If you want to maximize your connecting spaces, turning them into a walk-in closet could be just the solution you need. Here, a former en suite transforms into a space-efficient walk-in closet.

It’s a smart and resourceful way of utilizing the areas of your home that otherwise remain bare.

You get a functional space where you can store your clothes and get ready in no time.

Closet with Compact Open Shelving

This cozy wooden dressing room keeps its contents fresh and well-ventilated with open shelves.

Closed, tight, wooden interior closets can get pretty stuffy and humid. So, an open and exposed design will work best for keeping the condition of your clothing pristine. 

In my experience, a dehumidifier is a big help for these types of closets. They can prevent moisture buildup and potential damage to your clothes.

In this narrow and compact white closet, we can see a similar open design with a shelf that isn’t built in but added into the space.

Another great feature of this design is the abundance of bins and containers to utilize every inch of this walk-in closet.

I also love how there are still closed drawers that let you keep other clothes discreetly.

Most closets are designed with adults in mind, so designing a kid’s wardrobe is harder to do. Fortunately, we found this walk-in closet that showcases efficient ways to keep your child’s clothes and items.

You can stack more than two hanging rods to keep even more children’s clothes. The spacious shelves can also store more of your kids’ things.

As this is so spacious and children’s items are quite small, this closet could really benefit from organizers and dividers.
