This may be an unpopular opinion, but I hate builder grade closets. They usually seem like an afterthought with poor space planning, minimal storage, and unpolished finishes. I already gave our master closet an upgrade (you can read all about it HERE) and now I’m moving on to the girls rooms. To kick it off I’m sharing a kids closet mood board with all of the essentials to turn a builder grade box into a super-functional glam storage room to grow with your child.

1. Closet System
Elfa from The Container Store is one of my favorite closet systems and is always on sale at the first of the year (perfect timing for this project). It’s fully customizable with several finish options and pretty easy to install. I love the drawers because they glide easily and have optional interior dividers to keep them looking tidy and the system can be modified to grow with your child.
Proper lighting is important for closets so you can see all of the clothes and accessories. It doesn’t have to be expensive to have impact! This flush-mount chandelier was only $30 from Amazon.
3. Kids Hangers
Kids clothes can be challenging to keep on a hanger. Sizing and material makes all the difference, especially when your kids are transitioning from itty bitty to pre-teen. While adult hangers can be too large to easily get clothes on and off, kids hangers can be too small to keep clothes from sliding off. By using these velvet kids sized hangers from Honey-Can-Do you can solve both of those problems.

4. Soft Storage
Kids closets rarely store just clothing. I love this set of baskets from Honey-Can-Do for storing toys, shoes, accessories, or even dirty clothes! Kids styled baskets are super cute but I recommend using more neutral products to ensure years of use as your child grows and interests change.
A peg board is a fun way to organize and display jewelry, ribbons, and knick knacks.
Labels are key for any organization system. They ensure items are found, AND returned where they belong, helping your systems run smoothly. Design your own custom labels in the shop.
Tip: Too big and too small baskets are a must for kids closets! Too big stores the next size up while too small is for tossing recently outgrown items.
