A long-time staple amenity for luxury houses, walk-in closets are still as vital as ever – and they’re continuing to improve in functionality and design. We’ve compiled 4 distinct closets from Mexico, South Africa and more, as well as provided advice on replicating these looks at home.
Boutique Style Closet
CANCÙN, MEXICO | US $8,300,000
The master suite in this 17,000+ sq. ft. Cancùn estate includes a bathroom with an Italian Teuco brand hydro massage spa and oversized closet reminiscent of a high-end boutique. Each section, of which, is invitingly organized and highly functional. Web ID: IGEC
Tip: The sky is the limit when it comes to designing your closet. Take inspiration from your favorite clothing stores, Pinterest boards or any other relevant sources to craft the space to your personal preferences.
Walk-In Closet And Vanity
MOSMAN, AUSTRALIA | PRICE UPON REQUEST
Within this prestigious whole-floor Balmoral Slopes residence in Mosman, Australia, is a deluxe master suite, offering panoramic views, direct terrace access, full bathroom with heated marble floors and a custom dressing room with vanity, making it the ultimate space to get ready every morning.

Tip: Walk-in closets are an excellent location for vanities, allowing you to seamlessly move from your beauty routine to selecting your outfit for the day. Be sure to find a space within yours to create an ideal spot to get ready.
Simple And Sleek Master Suite
HIDDEN HILLS, CA, USA | US $6,275,000
Remodeled in 2018, this Californian modern farmhouse includes a master suite with numerous amenities, including a fireplace, wet-bar, spa-like bathroom, private balcony and Rosewood lined closet, styled in minimalist fashion above. Web ID: DTDE
Tip: Less is definitely more. Approach your wardrobe Marie Kondo-style by only holding onto clothes you actually wear, and neatly organize them by category and color within your closet space. Accessories like jewelry can be kept neatly on countertops or organized in drawers.
Detail-Oriented and Stylish Dressing Room
CONSTANTIA UPPER CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA | R32,000,000
One of five bedrooms in this Cape Town, South Africa home is a glamorous master suite, just off a conservatory with a temperature-controlled pool. The dual dressing rooms offer abundant space and beauty. Web ID: TUTH
Tip: It’s important to remember the details. The above closet accounts for all dressing needs – seating for putting on shoes, counterspace to fold clothes and a hamper to discard dirty ones. This helps keep the space functional and easy to maintain.
