Good Questions: Sprucing Up a Walk-Thru Closet?

Good Questions: Sprucing Up a Walk-Thru Closet?

ATDC reader Jennifer needs help beautifying her walk-thru closet:

Hi there, I have recently moved into an apartment that has a walk-thru closet. In order to get to the only bathroom, you must walk-through my large main closet. I really need this closet for functional purposes but I would like it to be pleasant to walk through, reducing the appearance of clothes jutting out at you as you make your way to the bathroom. Any ideas?...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: dc(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com)

I'm not allowed to paint the walls, but I was thinking maybe getting sweater boxes and painting the dresser -- but I am trying to avoid having too many colors competing in this room, as there is enough with the clothes.

Thanks, Jennifer


We think you are already off to a great start with those well curated narrow shelves. We've never had to deal with a walk-thru closet before, but think that the more organized you are, the more comfortable you will be with the space. Perhaps hang your clothes by color or group all like items together to reduce the visual clutter? We know we have readers who have dealt with this situation before, and hope we get lots of good ideas in the comments below...
