If the end of summer has you in a de-cluttering state of mind, take the opportunity to give your closet a full-on makeover. Better yet, give it the celebrity treatment. To help take your wardrobe to a whole new lush level for fall, we enlisted the help of none other than luxury closet designer Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design. Adams is the closet connoisseur and organizational guru behind the jaw-dropping arsenals of Fergie, Christina Aguilera, Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and many more stars. Below, she spills a few of her secrets for achieving the celebrity-caliber closet of your dreams.
Create a DIY Three-Way Mirror
“You can add mirrored doors that hinge to create a three-way mirror effect,” says Adams.
Use a Glass Case to Display Accessories
Adams recommends giving your closet the celebrity look by installing glass cases to display all of your accessories such as sunglasses and costume jewelry.
Hang Your Scarves
“Add dowels (or even a towel bar) to hang scarves rather than folding them in drawers, which makes viewing difficult,” Adams says.
Add Glamorous Lighting
“Back lighting and a glamorous chandelier are celeb favorites,” says Adams. “Lots of lighting is key to creating a ‘shop in your closet’ boutique experience in your closet so that you can see all that you have, and tell blacks from blacks.”
Show Off Your Sunnies
“Having all of your sunnies organized and in full view makes getting dressed that much more fun!” says Adams. “Keep cases in the drawer below your sunglass drawer so that when you’re on the go and packing your handbag you can grab easily.”
Create a Boot Tree
“Angle your shelves for heels and add a hanging rod to hang boot trees for boots—you will instantly feel like a celeb!” says Adams.
Install Custom Suede Drawer Inserts
“Partitioned drawers lined in suede scream luxury,” says Adams.
Protect Your Most Treasured Pieces
“Add fingerprint locks to keep certain drawers and doors secure (say goodbye to key locks!),” says Adams.
Dedicate a Section to Workout Essentials
“Since we all can’t be like Khloe Kardashian, you can create her fitness closet by incorporating a section in your closet for workout only—shoes, clothing, equipment, and accessories,” says Adams.
Use a Packing Table
“Add a packing table to make it easier in your closet to pack and fold—a game changer!” she says. “It is also helpful as a landing counter when changing out handbags.”
Create a Staging Area in Your Closet
“Designate a section in your closet (or bring in a free-standing garment rack) as a ‘staging area’ for new purchases or items you want to admire for a little while before incorporating into your closet,” says Adams. “When you’re packing for a trip, you can stage items you are considering taking in this area. So fun!”
