What Makes A Good Closet Design?[email protected]
You might not have considered the aspects of good closet design, but believe it or not, there’s a lot that
goes into making a mediocre closet space so much better. And if you’re aiming for a custom closet, not
only will it give you space to store all your clothes, shoes and accessories, it can offer a place that’s a
reflection of you and your home. There are several great features and accessories to consider if you’re
searching for good, common sense closet design:
- Incorporate your personal style
Since your closet is tucked away and yet a reflection of your own personality, it’s a wise idea to allow it
to be “you”. Choose colors and simple design choices to personalize your space.
- A Valet Bar
When you’re possibly spending a small fortune on dry cleaning, or you’ve gone to the trouble to
handpick an outfit, or have a fresh-pressed ensemble, the valet bar is the perfect addition to make your
closet work for you. A valet bar in your closet area can make life easier – no more throwing clothes on
your bed, removing the plastic and re-hanging them. Instead, hang them neatly on the valet bar when
you get home, remove the plastic and place them on your good hangers. It’s that simple. Or hang an
outfit on a valet bar in order to make choosing what you’ll wear a fast process. Bottom line – valet bars
allow you to have a good visual and a handy hanging accessory.
- Tie and Belt Racks
Rather than have an unsightly pile of belts or a heap of wrinkled ties, keep all of your ties wrinkle-free
and your belts easily accessible with the right storage. They can match the color of your project and the
finish of your handles. And best of all, they’re an easy way to add storage without taking up a lot of
It seems like a simple idea, but hooks are an easy way to provide a spot for everything in your closet.
Hooks are a perfect way to store hats and bags, or clothes you plan to wear again soon. Rather than
tossing them on the floor, or folding them up, placing them on your bed post or dresser, just hang them
on a simple hook. They come in all shapes and sizes, and can fit the overall style of your closet, adding a
nice design element.
- Drawer dividers for efficient storage
There is no bigger closet disaster than trying to find a place to store all your smaller accessories. Special
items require specialized storage. Velvet jewelry inserts to hold each ring or bauble and drawer dividers
to hold each rolled up tie or undergarment. Inserts and dividers can really help personalize the storage
in your closet organizer.
- Specialized Accessories
Unique problems demand creative solutions. We have a variety of options – from shelves, scarf racks,
shoe fences, lazy susans and ironing boards. Shelves are perfect for shoes, folded garments and other
items that otherwise can’t be on a hanger or hook. Cubbies are a good complement to shelves and can
store your sneakers, flats, sandals and flip-flops. With dedicated shoe storage you’ll feel like royalty
every time you step in your closet. An added fold-out ironing board allows you to work effortlessly to
keep clothes neat and presentable before you store them.
Above all, when you consider the design process for a good closet, keep in mind the features that will
make your life easier, and your storage options versatile.
