This is one of our favorite closets ever! This closet transformation was part of a ~10k square foot, whole-home organizing project that spanned several months. This closet was for a successful and very busy local professional.
The closet was practically empty when they hired us, and his clothes were scattered around the house in various rooms and closets. He didn't have a designated place to get ready, which was stressful. He also had an extensive shoe/sneaker collection that wasn't being properly displayed.
His spouse had some of her clothes in the closet but was getting her own closet designed in another space, so those items needed to be relocated so he could get full reign of the closet.
Our Process & Project Launch
The first step was locating all of his clothing, shoes, and accessories around the home. Then we sorted all the clothes into like categories. He had many high-end and specialty clothing items that we wanted to store and showcase properly.
We switched out all wire and plastic hangers with either wooden hangers for suits or thin black velvet hangers for jackets, button-downs, t-shirts, and pants. We disposed of all dry-cleaning bags. These don't let your clothes breathe and are only meant to be used to keep your clothes clean on the trip home.
Home Organizing Revealed
The finished product was jaw-dropping. All clothing items were organized by category on matching hangers.
Our favorite part of this closet was the shoe wall. We used clear drop-front shoe boxes to create a massive shoe display. With this, we were able to showcase a vibrant wall of colors and allowed the different sneaker designs to be easily visible. It is truly stunning to look at, and we didn't want to leave!
We displayed some specialty and overflow shoes, such as taller cowboy boots, on the built-in shoe shelves as well.
This closet had it all! There was even a tie bar for his beautiful tie collection, and we created a hat shelf to display his many hats. We organized a drawer for his pocket squares and other formal accessories.
Lastly, we added grey, labeled baskets on the upper shelves for loose items, such as snow gear and memorabilia.
Having his newly organized closet made a big difference for our client. He no longer had to get dressed in a random guest room of the house. Everything was organized and easy to find. He could admire his sneaker collection and pick which pair to wear with ease.
The best part of organizing this closet was his reaction. Our entire team of organizers was there, and we had a big reveal when he got home from work. He was beaming, loved his newly organized closet, and said he could tell we really care about what we do. That was a great compliment to receive because we really do care a lot!
Thanks for joining us to learn more about this gorgeous closet. We hope you enjoyed the photos and stellar shoe wall.
