We all dream of creating our dream closet, but it can be difficult to choose the products to do it.

Designer, Jo Alcorn, shares some of the items that can transform a dull space into a Hollywood star-worthy closet.

If you can spare the space why not transform an unused room into a spacious closet!

Every space needs a wow factor whether its statement pieces, colour, accents

  • Use inspirational piece like flashy, bright wallpaper
  • Opt for functional yet practical and stylish pieces
  • A custom built-in closet system can work wonders for maximizing your space
  • Identify different hanging areas for specific areas and organize each one
  • Black felted hangers prevent clothing from falling off so that everything looks pristine
  • Colour blocking your closet acts as its own decoration
  • Install a full length mirror so you can see your outfit from head to toe
  • A nice chair makes trying on shoes easy

Think outside of the box for clever ways to store items

  • Umbrella can hold yoga mats, shoe horns, etc…
  • Vintage suitcases look stunning stacked together and create extra storage 
  • Screw the bottom of a paint can on the wall and put your shoes in them plus it turns your wall into an art piece
  • A kitchen rod can serve as a necklace stand
  • Use a towel rack for shoe storage to showcase them beautifully or as an accessory hanger
