Closets play an important role in any home, but the one you setup in your master bedroom will probably be the most important of all. When you’re considering a remodel project for your master bedroom, that’s the perfect time to have a custom closet installed that will literally transform the room and make it something you’ve always dreamed of. Here’s how you should go about installing that dream custom closet.
Consider your Actual Needs for the Closet
Start by considering what isn’t working in your present closet, and eliminate that from your new design. Then think about who will be the primary user(s) of the new custom closet, and arrange things so as to be most convenient for that person or persons. If both spouses will have equal claim to the area, you’ll need to account for that, otherwise make things convenient for the single individual.
Calculate Room you’ll Need for Clothing
You’ll have all kinds of options for storing clothes in your custom closet, so think about how you want them stored – will it be on shelves, drawers, or hanging racks? Does your present wardrobe include lots of sweaters that need to be hung up, or do you have lots of pants and shirts which need to be hung from wracks to remain wrinkle-free? You may have lots of clothes which can be folded and put away neatly in drawers. How many pairs of shoes will need to be stored in your closet?
Accommodate your Present Wardrobe
You’ll need to estimate how much space will be required for coats and full-length dresses, as well as the number of half-spaces you’ll need for jackets, blouses, and skirts. If you and your spouse have several long winter coats, these will need to be accommodated somehow in your new closet as well. In short, think of every garment you currently own, and where its particular space will be in the new closet.
Add an Island with Custom Cabinetry
If you have the space for it, having an island in your walk-in closet can be like a dream come true. You’ll need at least three feet of clearance on both sides of your island, so it won’t become obtrusive. If you do install custom cabinetry with an island, that will give you even more space, because you could possibly install a whole set of pull-out drawers where you can store underclothing and socks, or whatever else you might have in mind. There are endless uses of an island in your custom closet, if you have the available area to install one.
Spruce Up you Closet with Amenities
As long as you’re doing things your way, why not include some useful amenities in your new custom closet? Add in some tie racks, mirrors, benches, dressing tables, shoe racks, and maybe even some additional lighting. A jewelry drawer might be another useful feature you could install, and if you typically would get dressed in your closet, you should make sure you have everything available to make that happen easily.
