Our shared walk in closet is finally finished! I’m so excited to share this space because you guys have been begging for a full look at it.
This shared walk in closet is everything we’ve dreamed of
When we found this house, one of the selling points for us was a really large shared walk in closet for Philip and me. In all our other homes we’ve lived in, our closets have been functional, but not very large. And as a blogger and stylist, there are lots of clothes around here, so we needed a good place to store them all, and we wanted a space that was functional, beautiful, and utilized the space really well.
Do I like sharing a closet with Philip?
Although in a perfect world I’d probably prefer my own closet, this walk in closet is really large and definitely works for both of us. Plus Philip is a lot more organized and clean than I am, so he makes sure it stays clean.
We hired a professional to get the layout just right
When we bought the house, we had all of the original shelves and rods deleted from this closet so we had a completely blank space. We poured through hundreds of shared closet ideas, but when it comes to designing a space that functions well and has lots of storage, we turned to the experts.
Philip found a designer on Houzz and he helped us come up with a really fantastic layout for the room.
We had originally planned on an island (which I’ve seen in tons of other closets and loved) but he recommended a jut out with a seat to maximize walking space. And of course I love how it turned out.
My favorite parts of the closet
It has tons of storage, a really beautiful shoe wall, gorgeous lighting, and the show-stopping spiral hanging racks in the corner. I LOVE how everything came together, and it’s just a pleasure to walk in every day.
Here are a few more photos of the closet space.
