Things to Consider When Planning Your Custom Closet DesignAugust 5, 2015
If you have a walk-in closet, you know that it can be both a blessing and a curse. Walk-in closets give you a lot of extra space, but that can contribute to a lot of extra clutter. Taking the time to optimize your closet with custom closet designs will make you far happier in the long run. These ideas give you a great start to your walk-in closet makeover.
Install a Custom Shelving System
When you moved into your home, you likely saw the cookie-cutter closet system that was there. It does not optimize the space for your closet, with gaps and improper organization that leaves you with a lot of stuff just sitting on the floor. Upgrade to a custom shelving and cabinet system that gives you shelves right where you need them. Make a list of all the things you want to store in closet shelving, so that you know how much space you will need.
Adjustable Closet Rods
You know that you need a hanging rod to keep your nice clothes from getting wrinkled. What you may not know is that you can create a rod system that changes based on your needs. Adjustable closet rods make it easy for you to alter your closet organization as you see fit.
Lighting and Flooring
Two things that people often forget in their custom closet makeover is the kind of lighting they need, and the flooring they want. Lighting is important to make it easy to find everything, and gives you the opportunity to get dressed, put things away or just take a short break. Before you make a decision about flooring, think about what footwear you use most often when you walk in the closet. Then you can decide if carpet or hardwood flooring is most appropriate.
Beyond cabinets, shelves and rods, you may have special uses for your closet. This is where custom closet designs can really shine. Do you wish you had a full-length mirror in your closet? Would you love an ironing station with a foldaway ironing board, or a nice bench for you to sit? Knowing exactly how you plan to use your closet helps you determine all the additions you should make for your closet customization.
You can try to do this on your own, but it takes far more work and may not yield the result you hoped for. A professional designer works with you to create a custom closet design that is specifically catered to your needs, without you having to put in a lot of work.
