You might have a love/hate relationship with your closet. You love the idea of having a walk-in closet where you can easily access all your clothes, shoes, and accessories.

But as it stands, it’s become a cluttered, disorganized mess.

The good news is that with a little effort, you can have your dream walk-in closet and keep it organized. We’ve rounded up the best walk-in closet organization ideas to help you get started.

1. Make a plan

Before you start organizing your walk-in closet, it’s a good idea to make a plan.

Think about what you want to achieve and make a list of the things you need to do to make it happen.

This will help you to make the most of your time and avoid getting overwhelmed by the process.

2. Utilize an entire wall

This wall in our closet is a perfect example of how to maximize the use of space.

I love the combination of the hooks for hats, the floating shelves, and the storage bins. This is a great way to store things you use frequently and want to keep on display.

3. Add storage to the back of the door

If you have a walk-in closet, you probably have a lot of space to work with. However, if you’re running out of space, consider adding storage to the back of the door.

This is a great way to add more storage space to your closet without taking up any space on the floor or on the walls. You can add hooks, racks, or even a shoe organizer to the back of the door to keep your items organized.

This is also a great way to store items that you use frequently, as they will be easily accessible when you need them.

4. Use a combination of storage options

If you have the space, a walk-in closet is the perfect place to use a combination of storage options.

In this walk-in closet, we used a combination of open shelving, drawers, and hanging space to create a custom closet design that meets all of our client’s needs.

5. Sort clothing by type

If you don’t have a walk in closet with an island, you can still sort your clothing by type in your closet. This means keeping all of your shirts together, all of your pants together, and so on.

You can also sort your clothing by type, color, and even sleeve length. This makes it so much easier to find what you are looking for quickly.

6. Place frequently used items at eye level

If you have a lot of clothes in your closet, it can be hard to find what you’re looking for.

That’s why it’s important to put your most frequently used items at eye level. This way, you can easily see and access them.

You can also use this trick to make the items you want to show off more visible. For example, if you have a favorite pair of shoes or a designer handbag, make sure to display it front and center on a shelf.

7. Use a color scheme to organize your closet

If you are someone who has a lot of clothes and accessories, it’s important to have a system. One easy way to organize your closet is to use a color scheme.

This will help you find things quickly and will also make your closet look more put together.

8. Use clear storage containers

Clear storage containers are a great way to store items that you don’t want to display in your closet. You can use them to store out of season clothing, shoes, handbags, and more.

Using clear storage containers allows you to easily see what is inside, so you don’t have to go digging through the containers to find what you are looking for.

9. Label everything

Labeling everything in your closet is the best way to keep it organized. When everything has a place, it’s easy to put things away and find what you need.

You don’t have to go overboard with labels, but you should at least label the shelves and bins in your closet. You can use chalkboard labels, printable labels, or even a label maker to label your closet.

Make sure to update your labels as needed. If you change the contents of a bin or move things around in your closet, be sure to update the labels so you don’t forget where things are.

10. Use drawer dividers

Drawer dividers are a great way to keep your clothes organized and easy to find. You can use them to separate items by category or to create smaller sections within a larger drawer.

For example, you could use a drawer divider to create a section for socks and another section for underwear. This will make it easy to find what you need, and it will also help to keep your drawers looking neat and tidy.

11. Add a bookshelf to your walk-in closet

If you have open wall space in your walk-in closet, consider adding a bookshelf to help keep your items organized.

A bookshelf not only provides you with a lot of storage space, but it also gives you the opportunity to add some personality to your closet.

Use the bookshelf to store your favorite books, shoes, or even handbags. You can also add decorative items to the bookshelf to make your closet feel more inviting.

12. Add a mirror

Mirrors are a great addition to any room, especially a walk-in closet. They can make the room feel larger and help you get ready in the morning.

You can hang a mirror on the wall, or you can get a mirror that is built into the closet. There are many different mirror options available, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs and style.

13. Use every inch of space

If you’re short on storage space in your closet, look for ways to use every inch of space. You can use the back of the door to store shoes, jewelry, hats, and more.

You can also use the space on the walls to add shelves, hooks, and other storage solutions to keep your closet organized.

14. Use S hooks

S hooks are a great way to add extra hanging space to your closet. You can hang them on the rod and then hang one hanger from the s hook. You can also use them to hang purses, bags, or scarves.

S hooks are also a great way to hang belts. You can hang them on a rod like in the photo above, or you can hang them on a wall hook or even on a hanger.

15. Add a laundry basket

If you have the space, adding a laundry basket to your closet is a great idea. You can easily throw in dirty clothes when you’re getting dressed and then take the basket to the laundry room when it’s full.

This is also a great solution if you have a walk-in closet in your master bedroom and want to keep your laundry separate from the kids’ dirty clothes.

16. Use a tie and belt rack

If you have a lot of ties, belts, scarves, or other accessories, you can use a tie and belt rack to keep everything organized and easy to see.

This is a great way to keep your accessories from getting tangled or lost in your closet.

Tie and belt racks can be mounted on the wall or hung from a rod, so you can easily find a spot for it in your closet. These racks have a lot of hooks, so they’re a great way to keep your accessories organized in one spot.

17. Add a valet rod

If you’re the type of person who likes to plan out their outfits for the week, a valet rod is a great addition to your closet.

You can pull out the rod and hang your outfits for the week on it, then push it back into the wall when you’re done. No more cluttering up your closet with a week’s worth of clothes!

18. Use a shoe rack

Shoe racks are perfect for keeping your shoes organized and on display. They are also a great way to save space if you have a lot of shoes.

You can find a variety of shoe racks to fit your closet space and shoe collection. From over-the-door shoe racks to wall-mounted shoe racks, there are many different options available.

19. Add a jewelry organizer

If you have a lot of jewelry, you might want to add a jewelry organizer to your closet.

This can be a great way to keep all of your jewelry in one place and also keep it organized.

There are many different types of jewelry organizers out there, so you can choose one that works best for you and your space.

You can even find jewelry organizers that can be mounted on the wall to save space if you don’t have a lot of extra room in your closet.

20. Add a hamper

I also like to add a hamper to the closet to keep the dirty clothes off the floor and in a basket.

This is a great way to organize the laundry and keep your clothes off the floor. I have a few in my closet and they are game changers. I also like to add a few to my kids’ closets.

21. Add a chandelier

Why not add a little glam to your walk-in closet with a chandelier? This is a great way to make your closet feel like a high-end boutique and will give you a little extra light when you’re getting ready.

If you don’t want to go all out with a chandelier, you can add some wall sconces or a statement light fixture instead.

22. Add a bench

A bench is a must-have walk in closet addition. Not only does it provide a place to sit and put on your shoes, but it also adds a touch of luxury to your closet.

If you have the space, a bench in the middle of your closet looks beautiful. If you have a smaller walk in closet, consider placing a bench in front of a large mirror. This will create a designated area for getting ready and make your space feel larger.

Top it off with a decorative pillow or two and a cozy throw blanket.

23. Add a rug

Rugs are a great way to add some color to your closet. A rug can also help to define your closet space and make it feel more like a room.

If you have a large closet, you can add a rug to the center of the room. If you have a smaller closet, you can add a rug in front of your shelves or in front of your mirror.

24. Add a pop of color

I love the idea of having a black and white closet with a pop of color. In this closet, the pop of color is pink. You can also use a colored rug to add color to your closet.

25. Add a table

If you have the space, add a small table to your walk in closet. You can use this table in a variety of ways. You can use it to fold your laundry on, set out your outfit for the next day, or even use it as a desk to work from home.

If you don’t have the space for a table, you could use a small bench or a few shelves instead.
