30 Walk-in Closet Ideas for Men Who Love Their Image

Getting out of bed in the morning, opening the window to refresh your mind, body and spirit, showering and then carelessly walking into your closet to pick out your outfit for the day sounds like the beginning of a unique day balanced by a healthy routine. Just before breakfast, you choose your “weapons” for the day.closet-ideas-for-men

And you know how “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”?

There is undeniable magic accessed through design. You can feel it changing your perspective. One day you imagine your dream closet and the next, you’re getting dressed there every morning. The masculine vibe in a man’s walk-in-closet is not given by the clothes themselves, but by a magical mix of materials, colors, textures, light and creative vision. Change your environment, change your habits.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (1)Shop These Products Now: ClosetsClothes Hanger

When Everything Falls into Place

The masculinity of this first example seems to lie in its organized nature. “A place for everything and everything in its place” is the guideline by which a walk-in-closet becomes functional, while the nature and possibilities of the space can be warped according to the designer’s creative vision. If you want to bring masculine details into your home, why not start where you yourself start your day – in the walk-in-closet?Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (2)Shop These Products Now: Cubic OttomanClosets

Closet Design: Minimalism meets Function

Modern minimalism is welcomed in contemporary homes, especially in a masculine wardrobe where simplicity encourages organization. As we’ve seen happening last year, the relationship between men and interior design has changed and this trend is steadily making its way to the closet.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (3)Shop These Products Now: Footwear Rack CabinetTufted Chaise Ottoman

Distinction in Lively Colors

It’s easy to think of a man’s closet in natural colors or dark hues, but sometimes this space is revived with vivid colors. This joyful closet design filled with masculine items was imagined by interior decorator Nate Berkus for his Manhattan duplex. The home-makeover expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show imagined a sophisticated gentleman’s closet infused with functionality and style.

Closet Space under a Gabbled Roof

Gathered under a tall roof, clothes nicely organized on hangers, hats on racks and shoes on the bottom shelves showcase attention to details. An ottoman keeps the comfort level to a maximum in the master closet of this stunning Australian country estate, aiding in your daily efforts of presenting the best version of yourself to the world.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (6)Shop These Products Now: Closet OrganizerStorage Basket

How an Ottoman can Change the Mood

Choosing an ottoman with internal storage is a smart move in a small wardrobe and an option in large closets. This Australian home displays an oval ottoman in a naturally lit master closet with custom-designed furniture – just one detail and everything looks more interesting.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (16)Shop These Products Now: Ottoman SeatWardrobe

From Spare Room to Spacious Wardrobe

What was once a spare room can become a brightly lit walk-in-closet. The example above showcases rift-cut white oak cabinetry with a custom stain built by Old World Kitchens. Customization is the perfect solution when you want the walk-in-closet to suit your personal needs (you might have more shirts and sports coats than the next guy) and store your clothes and accessories in style.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (11)Shop These Products Now: Ottoman BenchClothes Hanger

Shine Some Light from Above

Natural light should flood every gentleman’s wardrobe just to make sure you choose the right colors, textures and accessories. If windows are not present, a skylight can shine some light on your fashion collections, just as we can see in House La Punta, a contemporary home designed by Central De Arquitectura.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (18)Shop These Products Now: Storage LadderCeiling Lights

Floor-to-Ceiling Shelving in the Closet

Here is an example from Josh Brown Design – a spacious walk-in-closet with floor-to-ceiling shelving in light colors. Even if no details are shockingly intriguing, the overall appearance predicts a high functionality.Masculine closet designShop These Products Now: Tufted Chaise BenchCloset Bar

Tie Collection in the Spotlight

This closet seen in the Strait Lane Estate imagined by Dallas-based Mary Anne Smiley Interiors is serene and well lit. There is plenty of room for shoes on the side opposing the shirts, as well as a brightly lit tie storage. This becomes a glamorous focal point that simply brightens up the whole walk-in-closet.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (5)Shop These Products Now: Wardrobe CabinetComfy Rug

Solid Wood Cabinetry and Vivid Colors

A solid wood closet is the classic way of displaying clothes and accessories, and modern versions of masculine walk-in-closets are customized to the owner’s needs. Updating this space might require just a splash of color and adding a modern chair to the mix increases functionality. But don’t take my word for it, check out what celebrity organizer Melanie Fascitelli teaches us about closet organization.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (7)Shop These Products Now: Closet OrganizerMirrored Doors

Mirrored Doors and Closet Configuration

Mirrored closet doors like the one seen in Melbourne Contemporary Kitchen‘s portfolio are the perfect way to visually enlarge a space, bring in more light and offer a break from the design monotony. A man’s closet has fewer types of items than a woman’s closet and also differs in length necessary for the construction of each storing element. But customization could leave you with a stunning gentleman’s walk-in-closet like the one pictured above.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (8)Shop These Products Now: Walk-In ClosetClothes Hanger

Modern Walk-in-Closet: Apartment Version

Romanian Studio 1408 knows how to design a man’s closet for maximum storage and efficiency. Within a spacious Bucharest apartment, the studio imagined an elongated walk-in-closet with plenty of storage room and maneuver space. It’s not necessarily about the space you have, it’s more about the way you prioritize the available space.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (9)Shop These Products Now: ChandelierWardrobe

A Lot of Light in Light-Colored Closet

If you have more accessories like handbags, belts, scarves, hats, and seasonal items, a simple closet just won’t do. Organization is key here, so before starting to build your dream walk-in-closet, you must assess your belongings. This New York City townhouse showcases an inspiring way of using light colors, glass shelves and drawers to store everything.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (10)Shop These Products Now: Closet ShelvesFootwear Rack Cabinet

Grey Tones and Great Lighting

This masculine wardrobe in grey tones is part of Urban Core Ventures portfolio. Seen through the lens of Joshua Lawrence, this space was organized around the owner’s needs – including a safe  – and artistically lit to compose an intriguingly luxurious atmosphere.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (12)Shop These Products Now: Drawer Storage CabinetClothes Hanger

Light Grey Palette Shaping a Masculine Vibe

Another example of using grey to define a masculine walk-in-closet is shown above – a man’s wardrobe with a window seat flooded by natural light serves as example for anyone who considers these two ideas suited only for women. And if you look hard enough in the right places, you could find clever hidden storage tips and solutions for any space in your home, including the closet area.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (13)Shop These Products Now: Ceiling LightsAccent Mirror

Artificial Light Creating a Special Mood

Light is of utmost importance in a walk-in-wardrobe – it helps you navigate and choose your clothes. Downlight clothes rods like LA Closet Design used in this inspiring man’s closet are a great idea for spaces lacking natural light – could you see this idea in your own custom closet?Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (15)Shop These Products Now: Wooden Storage BoxWooden Closet Cabinet

Think Creative: Luggage as Decor

This wooden walk-in wardrobe by Piero Lissoni showcases an exemplary way of storing your clothes in style. Natural colors, carefully placed lights and an organized scene make this closet simply stunning. Using old luggage to decorate and store brick-a-bracks is a great idea for an old-timey gentleman, don’t you think?Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (17)Shop These Products Now: Walk-In ClosetAccent Chair

Masculine Walk-in-closets: Simplicity is Key

We all know how making a good first impression counts. And it might just be the impression you leave on yourself the minute you look in the mirror, ready to face the world in the morning. A walk-in-closet with sliding glass doors and wall-mounted shelves like the one from Viarde Studio could become the scene of your everyday transformation into the person you want to become.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (19)Shop These Products Now: Footwear Rack CabinetCloset Bar

Barn Doors for Modern Walk-In-Wardrobes

A bedroom-adjacent walk-in-closet can be surprisingly hidden behind a barn door. Depending on your preferences, a man’s closet like the one above imagined by Jute can display earthy colors as a background for all your clothes.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (20)Shop These Products Now: Closet Wall ShelvesTripod Floor Lamp

Glossy Sliding Doors for Stylish Closets

Much like this example from Poliform USA, glossy surfaces convey a minimalism best suited for people who appreciate simplicity. There’s a soothing honesty in glossy surfaces, constantly reminding one of their own selves through the mirroring effect. You can have your own modern, multifunctional master bedroom closet by following a few simple rules. The question remains: is this more your style?

The Closet: Claim it Through Design

Having a sink in the master closet helps you and your clothes stay fresh (you can prevent getting your white shirts dirty by washing your hands before getting dressed). A space you can see as your perfect walk-in-closet is first filled with intention, so you must become aware of your personal needs and apply them to this coveted interior space, make it your own through design, just like Sebastian Mariscal Studio did for their client.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (22)Shop These Products Now: Room DividerClosets

Behind Closed Closet Doors

Any gentleman knows how important clothes are for making a first good impression. But even the clothes have to make a good first impression on you and an organized closet like the one above by Sharps helps accomplish both. Behind closed doors, your clothes have a luxurious dust-free space of their own, as our grandfathers probably never dreamed of.

Tradition and Customization

Brown is an all-time favorite color for a man’s walk-in-closet. In a spacious walk in closet, ample storage was designed in cherry blossom melamine by the team of Closet Organizing Systems. Many double hang sections and open shelves keep clothes handy, while the desk area “anchors the room”, as the Chicago-based team describes it.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (24)Shop These Products Now: RugStorage Drawer

Mysterious Dark Nuances in the Closet

Dark colors in a walk-in-closet define a masculine space, but great lighting in a dark space is what creates that alluring mystery. A bachelor pad could very well showcase a dark man’s walk-in-closet alongside those basic spaces for living. Your second skin deserves an organized  environment as you deserve a healthy lifestyle.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (26)Shop These Products Now: Closet BarCeiling Lights

Take a Second Look at That Tight Space

Is it walk-in-closet material? Even if the space you have for storing clothes and accessories is not ideal, customization will help turn things around. Under a slated wall like in the London Mews House by TG Studio, lights line the bespoke shelving unit, while the large entrance with mirrors allows you to use this space for changing in and out of different clothes.Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (27)Shop These Products Now: Wardrobe Cabinet LightsWall Mirror

Color Changes Everything

Painting the walls behind the shelves a different color, like Steilish Interior and Lifestyle Design did in this West Chelsea Residence, is one way of adding that little extra to a classy closet space. A closet island might be the perfect shoe storing solution. The materials, colors and textures of this specific closet were chosen as part of an overall design – it’s your turn to imagine the ideas in your own favorite colors!Walk-in Closet for Men - Masculine closet design (30)Shop These Products Now: White WardrobeWhite Hangers

All-White for a Stark Contrast
