8 Simply Amazing Closets

Great closets make getting dressed a grand affair.

1. Greenwich Village Town House by Harry Heissmann

When Harry Heissmann‘s clients requested glamour for their 1,200-square-foot master suite dressing room in their Greenwich Village town house, he certainly delivered. The space boasts a Finnish mid-century chandelier and a plywood desk, flanked by custom glass sliding doors. Inside, the doors are painted with a giant circle motif rendered in glittering paint.

2. Highline Apartment by Workshop/APD

Off the master bedroom in this 2,300-square-foot New York apartment, a dressing room features custom hemlock millwork and a herringbone-pattern calf-hair rug in various hues of gray, reiterating the overarching color scheme in the rest of the apartment. “The whole reads as a cohesive story versus a series of individual vignettes,” Workshop/APD partner Andrew Kotchen says.

3. 1930’s Belgian House by B-Architecten

This modernist home in Antwerp, Belgium, features a glamorous master suite dressing room with purple fabric-covered closet doors and an eye-catching vanity on a round pedestal table with mirrors that can revolve like reflective planets. 

4. Chelsea Apartment by Alexander Gorlin and Larsen Design

In the master bedroom of a Chelsea loft by Alexander Gorlin and Larsen Design, a dresser behind the bed’s headboard creates a semi-private changing area.

5. Gold Coast Apartment by RDK Design

IKEA storage units create an organized yet stylish shoe display in the daughter’s bedroom of this 3,330-square-foot Chicago apartment by RDK Design.

6. John Bricker’s West Village Apartment by Gensler

What was once just a closet in Gensler creative director John Bricker’s West Village apartment is now part of a two-room dressing room. Bricker made small adjustments to his 850-square-foot apartment to open up the flow, removing the short hallway that connected the bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet, to transform the space into a proper dressing room. 

7. Flatiron Factory Loft by Messana O’Rorke

The walk-in closet of this 800-square-foot factory loft can hold 200 pairs of shoes on its rows of wood shelves, without straying too far from Messana O’Rorke’s design principle of “primitive minimalism.”

8. New York Pied-à-Terre by Eric J. Smith and Erik R. Smith

The master bedroom of this New York pied-à-terre by Eric J. Smith and Erik R. Smith includes a dressing room that features bleached anigre built-in cabinetry.
