A few years ago, I was working with an interior designer, Jan Romanuk (my business partner at the time) on a renovation for a client and I was asked to choose the colours for the closets in the bedrooms. I specified a white thinking it would be easier change the colour of the bedrooms down the road as the closet would not need to be re-painted. After the house was done, I looked at those closets, painted a boring old shade of white and thought “Note-to-self, don’t do that again!”.
So the first guideline is to paint the closet the same colour as the room.
Second would be to make it a room all on it’s own. If you want it to flow and you have 2-3 colours in your bedroom already, choose one of them. And you could make it glamorous and exciting like this one:
