How to fake a fabulous closet: Part 1

This is part of a series on closet design which will be the culmination of about 10 months of research into closet organization, closet wardrobe systems, and closet storage solutions. I’m not even kidding.

Like EVERYTHING with home design, it’s totally possible to spend ridiculous amounts of money on closets. And often with only incrementally better finishing, performance and results. When we bought this place on Miami Beach, it’s biggest issue was not only its lack of closet space, but the ineffectiveness of the closets: they didn’t maximize their use of space, making them virtually useless to my husband and I – both of whom have a Lot. Of. Clothing.

No, really, we have  a lot of clothing: him nearly as much as me, and it all needs a home!

So I’m going to let you in on these secrets I’ve found, and while closet organization begins with intelligent use of space on a macro level, the way to really fake a fabulous, high-end, luxury space is in the finest details. One thing I am absolutely investing in is motion-sensor lighting, for 3 reasons:

1. It eliminates the need to an additional light switch, keeping the wall outside the closet that much cleaner
2. Motion sensors save energy, so you’ll never forget to turn the light off
3. Motion sensor lighting says “good morning” when you open the closet in the a.m., and “time to party” when you’re getting dressed for an evening out. It feels special and personal.
