A wonderful closet doesn't have to be created from a room. Just look at this long passageway which houses a stunning closet, while leading to an outdoor porch! The use of the space is efficient, with open built-in cabinetry reaching to the ceiling, capped off with elegant crown molding. The open shelving is key here. If it was necessary to open doors to access items the space would become blocked, making it less functional.
The skylights illuminate the space, along with a string of elegant glass lanterns. With limited floor space, a small bench at the end of the hall provides the necessary seating to sit while putting on shoes.
As a final touch, the inlay around the perimeter of the floor accentuates and embraces the fact that this is a long and narrow space.
