Sell the dream closet.

What once was just a place to hang clothes has become a focal point of the bedroom. The closet is a spot retailers can outfit with products from their stores, regardless of whether a customer is creating a walk-in closet from scratch or updating a small, disorganized closet.

One way retailers can help customers make changes to their closets is by suggesting they paint the inside walls a different color. This can be a fun pop of color that creates an accent wall.

Retailers will want to draw customers' attention to closet organization items such as hangers, shoe racks, storage shelves and more. One creative way to display these products is by creating a closet vignette that shows the merchandise in action.

Share closet organization tips found online with your Facebook fans and consider holding a contest to see who can create the coolest closet update with help from your store. Have customers post their closet photos online and offer the winner a gift card to your store. Display customer-submitted photos on a closet endcap to give potential customers a visual of what they can create, as well.
