Much like their parents, children and teens are getting their own custom-designed walk-in closets outfitted with designer wallpaper, velvet-lined jewelry drawers, boutique-style shoe racks and even handblown glass chandeliers.

Costs can range from $5,000 to $15,000 to build a high-end closet in a child’s bedroom, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Lisa Adams, founder of LA Closet Design, whose clients include Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates, said she’ll often build children’s closets  at or below the child’s current eye-level, with adjustable shelves to accommodate children as they grow. A boy’s closet will sometimes get a sports theme with a locker-room style setup and girls will often receive gold-framed mirrors with acrylic accents.

Two sisters, 16 and 19, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood have a walk-in closet featuring three handblown glass chandeliers and glass shelving. The closet has a mirrored wall and boutique-style shoe racks for their expanding shoe collection, according to WSJ.

New York-based firm Clos-ette said children’s closets can cost between $10,000 to $15,000 and often increases home value once its time to sell.

Soon-to-be mom Stefanie Termini in Encinitas worked with California Closets to create a reach-in closet for her baby girl, due later this month.

The $5,000 closet features a metallic rug, wallpaper with metallic dots and sparkly knobs and pull-out shelves with tiny baby shoes.

“We wanted more of a glamorous look,” Termini told the WSJ. “We wanted the bling.” [WSJ]Subrina Hudson
