Her clothes are hung up on racks with velvet hangers, her shoes are grouped together by frequency of use, and even her shapewear has a special place. All in a light and bright space with warm wooden floors.

There's a lot to love about Eva's closet and while you may think it's harder to organize a small closet with lots of clothes, you can still use her timeless techniques.

Before starting anything, you'll need to clean your closet thoroughly and sort through all your belongings. Toss anything you don't need and declutter your clothes so you have plenty of room to work with. Once you have a solid foundation, you'll be ready to copy Eva's closet system. 

One of the first things we noticed about Eva's space was her custom lighting scheme. “One of the easiest ways to improve your closet is to add some LED lighting. You can use strips, pucks, or rods to illuminate your clothes and accessories, and make your closet more attractive and convenient," says Kanika Khurana, principal interior designer and founder of Kanika Design.

These RXWLKJ under cabinet lights available from Amazon are a great pick to add some brightness, with over 3k customer reviews.

Then Eva groups similar items together, like when she hangs her matching tops and bottoms together using a connector. "Grouping garments to create distinct zones within your walk-in (just like you would when organizing a small bedroom) not only maximizes the utility of your closet space but significantly reduces time spent looking for things", says professional organizer Shannon Krause, co-founder of Tidy Nest

Eva uses drawers for smaller items like undergarments and hangs all of her larger pieces of clothing like tops, bottoms, dresses, and athletic gear. "I recommend clients use drawers for things like socks, underwear, and t-shirts. Some people also like to fold their pants up and stow them away, which is fine. Use velvet hangers to hang sweaters, dresses, suits, and jackets, as well as nicer blouses and button-ups," says Amanda Wiss, design expert and founder of Urban Staging and Urban Clarity.

Eva hangs all of her hats on a wall which is not only visually appealing but handy as well. You can hang up a selection of items using these highly-rated Command Hooks available on Amazon.
