Staying organized can be difficult at first, especially if you can’t get all of your clothes in one central location. One of the benefits of incorporating a custom walk-in closet to your new home’s design is that it helps you get ready to face the day. Here are some factors that you will need to consider along the way!
Choosing a Layout
First things first, you must select a layout that works for your walk-in closet. The kitchen and bathroom in your custom home are much more functional when they have an optimal design, so by that same token, you can’t ignore the layout for your walk-in closet. For instance, there is the “galley” style, which has two walls lined with all the shelves, drawers, and hangers you will need. There is also a floor-length mirror included so you can view your entire ensemble. This arrangement is perfect for couples! Now let’s look at some other possible configurations:
The U-Shape provides more storage, even on only three sides. The L-Shaped walk-in closet works for narrow closet spaces. The L-shaped design takes advantage of a dual walk-in closet setup. Finally, having an island or center console could make your life more comfortable than you ever imagined when it comes to getting ready. That’s because this is where you can store socks, underclothes, and accessories! You can also include a lounge chair if you wish!
How to Design It
Conventional wisdom dictates that you should focus on using white or other bright colors for your closet. But the beauty of a custom walk-in closet is that you don’t need to shackle yourself to that ideal. Try using more lighting paired with dark walnut wood for a more refined and elegant tone. Add a rug over the flooring, whether or not it is hardwood or carpet. Emphasize symmetry and have enough shelves and drawers to make sure heavier items aren’t tricky to retrieve, and nothing gets lost when you need to look for it!
How to Make It Comfy
Finally, we need to talk about ways to make your walk-in closet comfortable as well as functional. Track lighting can make a world of difference, especially when you also incorporate motion sensors that turn the lights on and off automatically. A quiet exhaust fan is a necessity, especially to improve ventilation. If you’re unsure how to make this happen, then it’s time to speak to the experts who have decades of experience handling the entire process!
