Walk-In Closet Makeover: The Reveal

Walk-In Closet Makeover:
The Reveal

This post is sponsored by Lowe's Canada, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I'm thrilled to be revealing our master bedroom walk-in closet makeover today! Thanks to Lowe’s Canada for partnering with me on this project.

If you recall my article, How to Make your Walk-In Closet Look and Function Better, our closet was a builder basic one that really didn't function well. It was stuffed to the gills with things we'd shoved in there when we moved into our house and was generally an unorganized mess. Plus, it was painted hospital green, which was um, yucky!

After emptying the walk-in closet and sorting through our clothes, we narrowed down what we actually needed in the space and came up with a plan for how to make our space function much better for us (on a budget). 

And now our master bedroom walk-in closet looks like this.

We've never had a walk-in closet before, or at least one that was so organized. And even though it's only been a couple of weeks since we finished it, my husband and I are both very much enjoying the sheer organization and increased pretty-factor of it all. Luckily, Lowe’s Canada carries a large selection of closet organization products. Products, like hangers and laundry organizers, to help keep everything well within reach.

So, how did we get this dreamy level of storage? It was much easier than you think! 

The first thing we needed to address, after painting the walls, was the poor lighting. In our original closet, there was simply one of those bare bulb light fixtures you'd expect to find in a basement or garage. Not exactly helpful or conducive for choosing clothes in the morning!

We decided to go with a simple, budget-friendly schoolhouse style semi-flush mount ceiling fixture, with a bright white LED bulb hidden in the frosted glass shade by Allen + Roth. Are you looking to add some lighting in your space? Be sure to check out Lowe’s Ideas & How To articles, which can help you choose the right lighting for your room!

After adding lighting, we then based our design around two ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony Starter Towers, one in the  16" version and one in the 25" version. They were the anchor pieces for each side of the closet. 

On my husband's side of the closet, we placed the wider tower to store his folded work clothes. In the place of one shelf, we added the ClosetMaid SuiteSymphony 25" Shaker Deep Drawer With Soft Close Glides, to tuck away his unmentionables. We may add another drawer or two later, when we see how he actually uses the shelves on a daily basis.

His side of the closet also got two levels of hanging storage space for his button-down shirts and jerseys. Our suitcases are simply tucked in at the back corner out of the way. 

On my side of the closet, we added in the narrower Starter Tower. Since I have a dresser in the bedroom, I didn't need quite as much space for folded clothes in the closet. We added one hanging rod to the top left, for my dresses, longer tunics and sweaters, and a lower hanging bar on the right for my regular shirts and blouses. Underneath the higher hanging rod, we tucked in the ClosetMaid Laminate Stacking Storage for my shoes and boots.

Here's where we got a little creative with the storage. Instead of adding a secondary hanging bar to the right of the shelving tower, we installed a shelf at about counter height (36 inches from the floor) for jewelry storage. 

I've always wanted a better organized place to keep all my earrings, bracelets and necklaces, and this little space is perfect for that. We finished the shelf with some caulking along the walls (leaving no cracks for jewelry to fall through) and then added a couple of jewelry organizers and a simple mirror on the wall.

We finished the space with a rug, some baskets, a leaning mirror and chair that we already had to give it a little bit of pretty style too. Of course, if you don't have those things already, Lowe's has plenty of stylish decor too! In fact, Lowe’s offers one of the largest selections of home decor anywhere, so chances are they’ve got exactly what you’re looking for. Accommodating our walk-in closet for two people may seem like a daunting task due to the small space that was available, but thanks to a variety of closet organization solutions and products available from Lowe’s, we were able to make this project achievable!

We are so happy with how this makeover turned out. Thanks to Lowe’s, I was able to find what I was looking for from the top brands all in one place. Thank you for following along with us. We hope that you've been able to see some ideas to incorporate in your own closet as well.
