Whatever the lifestyle or living arrangement, most people don’t have enough closet space. For people who have a basic wardrobe, the basic closet may suffice, but for the fashionista, the basic closet will never do.
Closets serve a purely functional purpose, but they are rarely organized sufficiently. A good closet design should have a combination of hanging space, shelf space, shoe space and drawers. With this combination, it’s much easier to organize a wardrobe and find things in a timely manner.
Although a closet is a utilitarian space used to store things, it doesn’t have to look like that. Whether it’s a large walk-in closet, separate dressing room or small built-in area, the closet space can be designed to reflect the same appeal of the bedroom or other area in the home. As shown in Traditional Home Magazine, a closet can be a stunning and beautiful space that’s well designed to optimize storage.
To protect clothes, shoes and accessories from dust, an enclosed closet space is best. A walk-in closet or dressing room may be an extension of the bedroom with no closure, but it’s easy to add bi-fold doors, pocket doors or shutters that can close off the closet for privacy. A built-in wall closet can be closed in with doors, fabrics or decorative screens.
When planning a closet space, think of it as part of the bedroom or adjoining space. Give the same attention to décor and design details as has been given to the rest of the house. If you would like more information on how to design your closet space, contact Design Build Team.
