“I like my money right where I can see it, hanging in my closet.”
Carrie Bradshaw said it best. You want a to-die-for wardrobe and a designer closet to show it all
off, but having them both can get expensive. I know I would rather spend my money on clothes and
accessories, so I’ve figured out a way to have both your dream closet and the wardrobe to fill it.
Ikea is known for making clean, minimalist furniture at a great price. They build things that can be
sold as a single item to make a room pop or you can buy whole sets that fit right in. You might not be
able to pronounce the names of their pieces, but you don’t need to be able to speak Swedish to see that
their whole goal is helping to create rooms that exude beauty and quality. Now, that’s a company I can
stand behind (or a closet I could stand in!).


What do all these images have in common? Other than the fact that I want my own home to look
like this! These closets are functional and beautiful at the same time. It doesn’t take much to create this
look. All you need are a couple of simple tips…
● Stay organized – Have separate spaces for jewelry, clothing, shoes and accessories.
Ikea closets have plenty of storage space for all your special items.
● Add molding – Create a sophisticated look and clean lines by installing molding around
the edges. Go from unfinished to completely redone in a flash!
● Don’t overcrowd – A closet like this is all about displaying your fashion choices. Space
your shoes or your handbags so as to show them off.
● Go with white – White is the best color to highlight your wardrobe. Its an
understatement that goes a long way. Your clothes are colorful enough, don’t let your
design show them up.
When you’re not spending a fortune on hiring an interior designer, you have more room to add
that special wardrobe piece you’ve been longing for. Make an Ikea closet to fit your lifestyle. That way
you can have style and storage and be able to afford it too.
