Homework Area in the Closet

Open shelving allows everything to be within reach while keeping things organized in this ultimate kid's closet. A dark orange border around the closet highlights the entire space, and dark orange paint separates the homework area from the rest of the closet. Photo courtesy of California Closets

Luxurious Walk-In Closet

This custom walk-in closet features white wood satin lacquer and polished chrome hardware for a clean, luxurious look any little girl would love. A countertop maximizes storage and takes advantage of every corner. The elegant look is complete with pullout shelving, glass dividers in the drawers and floating shelves. Design by LA Closet Design

Double Clothing Rods

A complete closet makeover includes double clothing rods to provide plenty of room for hanging clothes, keeping the most frequently worn clothing on the bottom rod. Custom cubbies are topped with a flat surface for extra space for folded clothes. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn used white paint so the items in the closet stand out.

Color-Coordinated Storage Baskets

Custom cubbies hold colorful storage baskets, which are meant to mimic a dresser. The baskets hold toys, books and clothing. The red baskets are designated for clothes and books, while the brown ones hold toys and games for an easy way to coordinate items. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Girly and Practical

Floor-to-ceiling drapes separate the closet from the rest of the room, while bringing an extra-girly touch to the space. One side of the closet is a dress-up area with hooks and baskets for organization, and the other side houses a dresser to store clothing. Design by RMS user gogirlgo

Laundry Basket Fun

Baskets, drawers and several clothing rods provide plenty of storage in this boy's closet. Include laundry baskets with liners — one for darks and one for whites — to keep things organized, while teaching your child how to identify colors. Design by LA Closet Design

Cabinet System Works Like a Closet

Dark cabinetry can bring a sense of elegance to your child's room. If you don't have enough closet space, an open cabinet system may be a better option. Install clothing rods vertically to save space and to give a boutique-style look to the space. Keep items you use every day at hand level for easily accessibility.

Hooks Accessorize the Closet

Install hooks for a creative way to accessorize your child's closet. You can use them to hang backpacks, coats or the next day's outfit. Lisa suggests hanging hooks at kid and adult levels so items are easily reachable for everybody.

Include a Variety of Storage

Filling your kid's closet with containers keeps things organized and provides plenty of storage. Add a variety of storage, including closed bins and open baskets to hold everyday items. Hang clothes at different heights to get the most use out of the closet space. Photo courtesy of The Container Store

Pullout Shoe Tray

Kids' shoes can get lost in deep shelving since they're so small. Lisa put this little girl's shoes on a pullout shoe tray, allowing them to be readily visible for easy outfit changes.

A Closet Fit for a Princess

Make your little girl feel like a princess with velvet curtains trimmed with beading. The striped closet wall brings in more color, and framed photos add a personal touch. Flank a dresser with open shelving for extra storage for dolls and books. Design by RMS user centsationalgirl

Organized Compartments

Deep, pullout wire baskets allow items to be easily visible in this little boy's closet. Separate compartments give each type of item its own space so everything is at your fingertips. Photo courtesy of California Closets

Clothing Tags

Organize your child's clothes by size, color, type of clothing — or however you wish — with clothing tags. This will help teach your kid how to put clothes back where they belong, and it adds an element of design to the space. Design by LA Closet Design

Polka Dots Galore

This tween girl's bedroom is filled with polka dots and pink decor. The closet features frosted glass doors to enhance the feminine look. Angled shelves hold a variety of shoes, and narrow drawers hold accessories like scarves, belts and hair accessories. Photo courtesy of California Closets

Hangers Save Space

A closet hanger is a simple way to keep your child's accessories organized and uniform. Hang it on the wall to save shelving space, or roll up it up and place it in a storage basket. Design by LA Closet Design
