Use curtains instead of sliding shutters: If you cannot have sliding shutters, then hang curtains or hanging screens as shown here in the image below. All the stuff can be hidden behind the curtain and that space will be mistaken for a window.

When walk-in is an option, preferably have a window in the walk-in area, as natural daylight and ventilation in a small but packed space is beneficial. You could also have a small, cosy window seat like the one in the picture below.

Have additional facilities in the Walk-in closet if you have the room, like a dressing area with a storable ironing board and a bench or chair for dressing. Or have a chaise lounge/sofa for reclining. A great way to be inspired to get dressed every morning is by creating a designated spot in your closet to hang and display the outfit for that day.

The higher you go, the more space you can create. Store your most-used items at eye level, less-used items below and least-used items up high. Have separate shuttered storage above the usual 7′ window lintel level for storing suitcases, or just have a shelf at that level and keep interesting storage boxes with handles for stacking out-of-season clothes. Remember to have a safe step stool.

ADD DRAWERS:

Drawers are some of the best closet storage pieces. Opt for a combination of shallow and deeper drawers. Deep drawers are useful for stacking t-shirts. Store folded items like sweaters or t-shirts vertically, instead of horizontally, so you can see all folded items in a drawer. Shallow drawers are great for everything from jewelry to scarves and sweaters. It’s easier to find items in a shallow drawer than stacking them (where they can be forgotten) in a deep drawer. Just because your closet doesn’t come with drawers, doesn’t mean you can’t add any. Add some drawers like the one shown here below.

USE THE INSIDE OF THE SHUTTER FOR HOOKS:

Use the inside of the wardrobe shutters for hanging things. Hooks on the inside of your closet door will offer space for your entire collection. Also, it makes picking out a purse that matches your outfit so much easier. You can also hang a laundry hamper on a hook on the back of your closet door. This way, you’ll know when it’s time to put the load into the washing machine.

HAVE GOOD LIGHTING IN THE WALK-IN CLOSET:

Add lights in your closet so you can see what’s in there. There are a number of clever, low-voltage and battery powered lights that can be added to shelves, drawers and other dark corners. Also, you can get lighting that turns on and shuts off automatically when you open and close drawers and cabinets.
