As today’s buyers seek out hyper-amenitized homes, they also crave elevated everyday spaces. Plush and spacious hotel-like primary suites and spa-like bathrooms are sanctuaries for homeowners, and as these become more of a design focus, so do walk-in closets and dressing rooms. No longer just a place to store your expensive clothing, epic shoe collection, designer handbags, or jewelry and watches, the walk-in closet is now a full luxury experience. Many designers create high-end closets with aesthetically pleasing displays, lighting, hidden storage, and even amenities like a champagne bar or espresso station so owners can feel inspired to start their days in complete luxury. Closets are becoming less of an afterthought and more of a place you want to spend time in. From bursts of color and large windows to playful prints and museum-quality lighting, these closets across the world will have you ringing up your interior designer for the ultimate closet refresh.
