Small Closet, Big Change: An Inspirational Closet Makeover

By: Staff Published: January 10, 2023

When Alyson Taylor, known as Authentically Alyson on Instagram, was ready to give her small, overcrowded bedroom closet a makeover, she partnered with ClosetMaid and selected the easy-to-install BrightWood storage system.

About BrightWood

A tower-based system, BrightWood can be configured in multiple ways to fit a small reach-in closet or a large walk-in. In addition to two tower widths, 16 inches and 25 inches, there are two drawer sizes per tower width, doors, angled shoe shelves and a corner unit.

You can also choose from shaker-style doors and drawers or modern, flat-front ones to suit your decor.

Alyson’s Closet Makeover

Alyson’s reach-in closet was bursting at the seams with all the clothes and shoes she needed it to contain. Her wire shelf and single hang rod system couldn’t handle the task anymore. She realized she needed a new solution with multiple storage compartments. That’s where the BrightWood collection came in.

Alyson started out with a basic wire closet system.

“With the BrightWood closet system, I have drawers, shelves, and a place to hang my jackets,” she says. “which is a huge difference from the open rack I had before where everything was piled in the middle, making a mess.”

Her new BrightWood closet can neatly store everything – from shirts on hangers to folded sweaters to tennis shoes.

New Finishes

Besides the original white finish, BrightWood comes in designer finishes. Each has a wood look. Latte and Ash are available now on, while Frost will be in the spring of 2023.

The new Latte finish will wake up your closet with its warm and invigorating look.

Regardless of whether you decide to match Alyson’s closet look or you select a modern style in a wood-tone finish, you’ll have an affordable, functional new closet.

“I now have easy access to all my clothes, and a stylish design that matches the high-end look of my room, without a high-end budget,” Alyson says of her makeover.
