Your closet doesn’t have to be a simple storage area. With the right master closet design, you can create a space that serves as a multifunctional dressing room.
Here are a few points to consider when planning your closet design.
How much do you actually have to store in terms of clothing, shoes and accessories? Do you add to your wardrobe on a monthly basis or more sporadically? If you spend a lot of money on the latest clothing designs, you’ll want enough space available not just for the clothes you have but for the clothes you will have. You’ll also need space to get dressed, to display clothes and to plan out what you'll wear the next day, not to mention accessories, shoes and the like.
You may want space available for your children to get ready for school while you get ready for work. If you don’t have kids, you may want ways to display your accessories, neckties and jewelry in an organized way. In fact, think about installing closet organizers that divide up your clothing into different areas that are in line with your lifestyle. Place full-length mirrors on both sides of the closet so you can see what you're wearing from every angle. If you have the space, consider placing a sofa, chair or upholstered ottoman in the middle of the closet for a place to sit while putting on your shoes.
Just because the closet serves mostly as a functional space doesn't mean it can’t have a little style. Add directional lighting, pendant lights and wall sconces to provide a relaxing atmosphere and decorate the space using photographs and artwork.
