We all love the look of a luxury closet—we just don't love spending the money to get one. But despite the myths you may hear online, you don't have to shell out big bucks to enjoy a lavish space.

No matter what you think you know about the cost of custom closets, we're here to tell you that luxury is possible for less. Let's look at how you can design an affordable yet luxurious-looking custom closet with ten easy tips.

1. Paint An Accent Wall

This is the easiest tip on this list! From peel-and-stick wallpapers to bright glossy paint, just choose your favorite color(s) and go to town.

2. Use Closet Accessories

The more you accessorize your closet space, the more luxurious it appears. At Louisiana Custom Closets, we make it easy to get the solutions you need with tie racks, jewelry drawers, and much more.

3. Add Storage Containers

Bins, baskets, and drawers, oh my! There are so many ways to update closets with storage containers. Look for fabric bins to bring a pop of color to your space, or opt for natural-looking baskets for a more muted tone.

4. Glow Up Your Lighting Fixtures

Upgrading the color or intensity of light in your closet can instantly update it from drab to fab.

Start by adding some overhead lighting to bring a touch of finesse to your space. Then, for extra pizzazz, add LED strip lighting for an expensive-looking flair.

5. Look Into Crown Molding

Crown molding is one of the easiest things to add to a closet space. All you need is a trip to the hardware store, a can of paint, and a nail gun.

Most people paint crown molding a cool bright white to accent the rest of their space. However, you can turn crown molding into an accent piece of its own with black, brown, or even a blue hue.

6. Hang Some Artwork

Artwork adds a touch of elegance to any closet space. You can hang up local pieces, add artwork from the kids, or fill up empty walls with family photos.

Don't like artwork? Trying mirrors instead! You'll love the amount of visual space it adds to your closet.

7. Remove The Carpets

If you want to take your space to the next level, you can install vinyl floors inside your custom closet. Not only is vinyl flooring simple to clean and maintain. It provides an altogether upscale look in closets of any size.

Still want something soft on the floor? Try an area or accent rug. You can complement the colors of your existing space while minimizing upkeep and maximizing luxury.

8. Install A Centerpiece

Closet islands are becoming a must-have for homeowners along the Gulf. From rolling carts to marble-topped centerpieces, islands offer extra organization options while providing a flat surface to fold clothes.

9. Place A Chair

You might be surprised how much a chair can revolutionize your closet space. A stool or wooden seat offers a convenient place to consider your outfits, while a bench or cushioned recliner turns any closet into a contemplative space.

10. Infuse Little Details

The easiest way to make your closet look luxurious is to complement the space with tiny yet important accents.

For example, you can try:

  • Adding potted plants
  • Displaying conversation pieces
  • Showcasing perfume or makeup bottles
