Sharing a Closet With Your Significant Other

Closet with customized storage compartments

It’s one thing to organize a closet with all your belongings and a whole other task to share the space with your significant other. Standard closets don’t always come with layouts conducive to sharing, so the team of experts at Closet & Storage Concepts can help build a custom closet that meets both your needs. Let’s take a look at the main features that can transform your closet into the couple’s dream.

Sharing Walk In Closet CharlotteStart with the Basics

First, designate sides for each of your belongings. Keeping things separate will help you stay organized. If you’re sharing a reach in, having individual rods and shelves is the best way to go about this. However, if you have a walk-in, feel free to get creative with drawers and cubby systems or even custom features that work with each of your wardrobes. Maybe you need space for shoes and bags while your partner needs drawers for accessories. You both likely have different needs for the clothes you wear, so don’t let a cookie-cutter layout hold you back from being able to display and organize your items properly.

Luxury Elements

If you have the space, a center island is something that can really step up the aesthetic and functionality of your closet. The counterspace will allow you to lay out outfits for the next day, fold laundry, or even use it for décor like photos of the two of you! We can build custom drawers for each of your prized possessions and include storage space for things like extra linens.

Finishing Touches

There are certain things that can really elevate your closet functionality. Dual rods for more hanging space are great if you have a lot of delicate items that get wrinkled when folded. We can even install pull-down rods if you have tall ceilings to make the most of the height in your space. These work well if you have items you don’t wear often and don’t want crowding your main space, but don’t want them to get shoved away into storage.

Other items like pull-out hampers make it easy to sort your laundry as soon as you take it off. A hideaway ironing board can pop out of the wall for quick fixes in the morning. Lastly, sleek doors on drawers or cabinets will allow you to craft a closet aesthetic that goes beyond standard looks.
