A custom closet can make a big difference in the organization and functionality of your home. Whether you’re redesigning an existing closet or refurbishing a bedroom for a walk-in, here are a few key steps to follow in designing your custom closet to ensure it’s both beautiful and functional.
Step 1: Assess Your Needs
The first step in designing a custom closet is to assess your needs. Start by thinking about what you’ll be storing in your closet and how you want it organized. Consider your wardrobe, shoes, accessories, and any other items you store or want to store in your closet. Make a list, and estimate how much space each item will need.
When you’re working with professionals, you’ll want to have some idea of what you’re looking for in your ideal closet. Taking time to prepare will help you communicate clearly with designers so everyone can be on the same page.
Step 2: Take Measurements
Next, take measurements of your closet space. Measure the width, depth, and height of the space, as well as the height of any shelves or hanging rods. Be sure to account for obstructions such as doors, windows, or light fixtures.
Typically, this step will be done by the professionals. So sit back, relax, and let them do the work.
Step 3: Plan Your Layout
Now it’s time to plan your layout. Consider how you want to organize your items and how you want to access them. Will you need more shelves or hanging rods? Would you like to incorporate drawers? How about a shoe rack? Don’t forget to consider the ways your wardrobe might grow in future.
Step 4: Choose Your Materials
Once you have a layout in mind, it’s time to choose your materials. Consider the style of your home and choose finishes and hardware that will complement it. Other elements, like custom fixtures and inset lighting, can add a special touch to your closet.
Step 5: Add Accessories
To further customize your closet, consider storage accessories. Options include drawer inserts, pull-out hampers, valet rods, and fold away mirrors. These accessories make it easier to find what you need in your closet and add a touch of luxury to your space.
Step 6: Hire a Professional
Designing a custom closet can be a complex process. This is even more true if you have specific needs or requirements for your space. Hiring a professional can help you ensure that everything is properly installed. Which means less stress for you, and a more beautiful, more functional closet.
