Feeling inspired to clean out your closet? The new year has pretty much all of us thinking about what we should keep or donate, what we should replace, and how we should organize everything.
But before you go on a shopping spree for new hangers and containers, hear out Lisa Adams, CEO of L.A. Closet Design, “Keep everything organized by category and color, similar to the way you would find clothing items displayed in a boutique,” she says. So that means don’t go stuffing purses in a drawer — set them out on open shelves and surfaces where you can see them every time you visit your closet. “If you see everything you have, you’ll wear everything,” Adams points out.
And what better way to display everything than with an incredible walk-in closet? Here are 6 dream walk-in closets (in homes that are currently available) for your inspiration and browsing enjoyment:
