5 IDEAS FOR THE PERFECT CUSTOM CLOSET DESIGNJuly 29, 2017
Walk-in closets increase both your home’s value and your day-to-day happiness in your home. These closets keep clutter out of the bedroom, hide storage where it’s out of the way, and let you easily see all your clothing. We’ve got 5 custom closet planning ideas that will help you create a functional and beautiful walk-in closet in your home.
1. INSTALL A CUSTOM SHELVING SYSTEM
While it costs more at the outset, a custom shelving system is well worth the initial investment. Custom shelves, when professionally installed, stand the test of time and are tailor made to exceed your storage needs. Take stock of your clothing, and choose a shelving system that provides adequate storage for what you need today and tomorrow.
2. USE ADJUSTABLE CLOSET RODS TO EXTEND SPACE
If you’re still getting by with one closet rod, you aren’t maximizing space. By using adjustable closet rods, you gain flexibility that lets you change your closet rod arrangement as your needs evolve. Maximize the space in every season by adjusting rods to best accommodate your garments.
3. INSTALL THE RIGHT LIGHTING & FLOORING
Not only is good lighting easier on your eyes, it makes the closet space more pleasant and it shows your clothing in the best light. When you can see everything, getting dressed takes less time.
Pick the right flooring for your needs. If you walk around barefoot, a plush carpet can feel nice underfoot for example. Proper flooring will also make the closet a more pleasant place to be.
4. THINK ABOUT YOUR NEEDS AND HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SPACE
Once you’ve accounted for the basic closet needs and your habits, it’s time to customize the closet. At this phase, you can think about how you really want to use the space.
Will you do your laundry and ironing in the closet? If so, then consider a wall-mounted ironing board for ease of use. If you think of your closet as a place for inspiration and relaxation, add a stuffed armchair and a fashionable piece of wall art. Let your imagination guide you toward developing the closet of your dreams.
5. CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL CLOSET DESIGNER
A professional closet designer can help you bring your dream closet to life, while sticking to a budget and making the best use of the space. To get the best closet you can afford, we strongly recommend that you hire a designer.
