Finding your clothes in an organized closet is part of what makes the morning routine go effortless, as well as having a spacious place to put on your make up and get your hair done in a jiffy. Having a vanity table in your house, instead of a crowded corner in your bathroom can very well be something that will transform your morning routine, saving you time and headaches.

If you don’t have space in your bathroom or in your bedroom for a vanity table, but you have a closet space neglected in your house, you could easily transform that space into your own personal vanity closet.

Here are five easy tips on how to create a vanity closet out of your extra storage space.

  1. Find the perfect spot.

First thing is to find the best location – and the best area for your vanity closet.  Ideally it would be in your bathroom, bedroom or hallway. If you don’t have it, you are better off traveling a bit in your house to an organized and peaceful area, rather than use a crowded corner where it feels crammed and messy.

  1. Purge your closet space.

Decluttering is the key to maximize any space. Before starting your vanity closet project, get three containers ready – SELL, TRASH, DONATE – for better organization let go of your junk, and ignored items that are just collecting dust and cobwebs. Put them to good use, or sell them so you can use the extra money from your sold items to pay for your vanity closet.

  1. Figure out the basic design elements you want.

Custom designers will optimize your space and sketch a design based on your needs. It would be more of a problem if something goes wrong while you put your hands on it, so it’s better to ask for a professional help to save you more time, money, and energy. You also need to consider creating space with extra shelves, drawers or doors for those items that you saved and still need to be stored, such as: linens, towels, clothes, or whatever you had in there previously.

  1. Choose color paint and light to illuminate the area.

Bright or neutral colors work well with wooden materials creating an airy area. Dark colors add weight to any design and don’t work so well for smaller areas since it tightens up the space. However, you should not limit your options to the white palette, feel free to go ahead and sprinkle some vibrant colors too in your vanity closet to add more personality to it.

Illuminating your space is very important in this case, so you want to pick a fixture installed above or alongside a mirror with a high CRI (90+ is preferred). Incandescent and halogen light sources always have the best CRI – 100 – meaning they most accurately render colors when you are putting your make up on. If you wish to use an energy-efficient LED or fluorescent light source, make sure it has a CRI or at least 90. This provides excellent color rendering in this type of settings.
