Custom Closet Home Transformation
When you’re on the lookout for custom closet design inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! At Coastal Closets and Showers, we know the right closet design can not only transform your home, but your dream closet can also transform your life with the ease and organization it brings.
But not just any closet will do. Whether you have a small walk in closet, a reach in closet, or a spacious master closet or anything in between, the right custom closet design is necessary to get the maximum functionality out of your closet.
To help you do that, we’ve compiled some important points to consider when you’re designing a custom bedroom closet.
What To Consider For Designing
It’s essential to consider how you can maximize every possible inch of space in your custom closet. There are many ways to do this, including different organization systems with different hang sections to give you the most hanging space you can get for clothing. But remember, clothing isn’t the only thing we store in closets, especially with closets in home offices that require different organization systems for different items.
A master bedroom closet is almost always used to store clothes, but depending on the size of your closet, there are many other ways it can also be used. Some homeowners also store shoes, clothing, jewelry, and memorabilia in their closets. In many cases, homeowners also choose to add seating and or an island that can be used for folding and more storage. Keep reading to learn about other optional features that can be added to a custom closet.
Here’s a great example of a multi-use closet from Closet and Beyond.
Closet lighting is another vital consideration for your dream closet. In a small walk-in closet or a reach in closet, you likely won’t have any windows, so artificial lighting will be the only light source. In a small, enclosed space, incandescent bulbs can pose a major fire hazard, so a homeowner’s only choice is using the appropriate fluorescent lighting.
In a bigger space, you could have more lighting options. If you don’t want to give up wall space to add a window in your closet, you could consider having a skylight installed. Natural light can be useful if you use your closet to get ready in, but having the appropriate lighting for nighttime use is also important.
We discuss closet lighting and more in this guide to designing a custom closet.
These considerations (and more) are a lot to cover by yourself. That’s why we recommend relying on the help of closet design experts, like our team in South Florida who are eager to help with all of this!
