10 Organized Closet Before & Afters
Transformations, makeovers, and overhauls make me feel like a 5-year old on my way to Disneyland. Transforming a space is refreshing. No, exhilarating! Home Transformations remind me of the makeover montages of every brilliant romantic comedy. The physical change signifies a mental shift in the main character. It signifies progress.
When it comes to space organizing, it’s not just about decluttering or rearranging items. It’s about creating change in your space that will inspire change within yourself. Maybe it’s an improvement in your stress level or a boost in mental clarity. Perhaps it’s a shift in how much time you waste searching for things. Perhaps a change in your home will inspire a sense of pride in it, which will lead to more pride in yourself.
I’ve seen these shifts happen in many of our clients lives. Organizing a closet or kitchen isn’t really about the stuff. It’s about the feeling that a refreshed, organized space can inspire in your daily life. A transformed space has the power to make you breathe easier and sleep sounder.
Since y’all responded so well to our last ‘before & after’ post, today we’re sharing our top 10 favorite closet makeovers from our favorite bloggers and organizers. Our hope is that these space transformations will give you some fresh strategies for maximizing your storage spaces, inspiration on the power of decluttering, and motivation to roll up your sleeves and get it DONE!

Shira Gill is a master at helping her clients declutter and create intentional spaces. In this closet transformation, we love that Shira creates loads of whitespace by decluttering and filling up every inch with a beautifully curated wardrobe. This approach immediately creates a calming, energizing wardrobe closet. via Shira Gill
By adding floor to ceiling shelving in this office craft closet, Abby maximized the storage space brilliantly. We love her use of uniform cream-colored labeled bins and paper cubbies for easy-to-access small office supplies storage. via JustaGirlandHerBlog
BneatoBar created more hanging space in this wardrobe closet by removing the dresser and adding uniform non-slip hangers. We’re always a fan of less drawers and more hanging space because it leads to less tedious folding and more wrinkle-free clothing! Also, the shoe racks below and above allow for easily accessible, and beautiful shoe displays. via Design Love Fest
When items don’t have a designated landing spot, it’s common for things to end up on the floor or stuffed into small cubbies. Jen solved this problem by installing drawers to store all the items that were floating around this coat closet. via iHeartOrganizing
Storing children’s toys and clothing in clear storage bins allows you to quickly see exactly where everything is. Also, these uniform, printed labels ensure that no matter who puts the items away (mom, dad, or kiddo), the intended home for each item is clear. via Classy Clutter
This Elfa closet install complete with jewelry trays and drawers is a stunning upgrade. We love the addition of a mirror and printed rug to create a cozy dressing area in this walk-in closet. via Laurel & Wolf
This utility closet turned craft closet is a show stopper! Lauren maximized this closet by adding floor-to-ceiling shelving, labeled bins, door pockets, and a step ladder to reach those hard to reach shelves. Stunning! via Blesser House
Here’s another Elfa closet makeover for the win! Jen used white Elfa closets to create extra storage, complete with drawer, shelves, and counters. She also used our favorite black non-slip hangers to create even more room for this beautiful wardrobe to breathe. via LifeinJeneral
This office closet makeover is a wonderful example of the power of vertical storage. Before the transformation, there was a lot of dead space in the middle of this closet. By installing four sturdy shelves from top to bottom, this closet immediately becomes more functional. via An Exercise in Frugality
Our team transformed this wardrobe closet by removing an old built-in dresser with oversized, hard to open drawers. We maximized the vertical space with an Elfa closet system across the entire width of the closet. The Elfa system came complete with hanging, drawer and shelf space to accommodate a complete wardrobe. via Simply Spaced
We’re such a fan of this closet transformation for a couple reasons. First, Laura upleveled the storage space by adding in some drawers below. Matching hangers and added wall hooks are also functional, beautiful touches to this space. via Laura Cattano of Order Obsessed
From overstuffed to spacious, this closet makeover shows the power of allowing your clothing to breathe. We love the touches of decor with framed photos and decorative details to make this space even more lovely. via W Network
This space looks so spacious after this makeover! Getting rid of unneeded gear and adding some floor cubbies is exactly what this space needed. We especially love the added curtain for an inexpensive solution for concealing this closet. via Brit.co
