Thinking about designing a custom closet in your home? Closet & Storage Concepts Modesto can help! Here are five customizable additions you definitely won’t want to be without.
The goal of a custom closet is to meet your unique needs. In other words, you shouldn’t have to adjust based on the limits of your closet.
Another thing to consider is that, over time, your closet needs may vary. Your shoe collection could grow in size, or you may decide to rearrange your clothing. When this is the case, you’ll certainly want to be able to adjust the size and location of various areas of your closet. This is why having adjustable shelving is always a good idea.
A Closet Island
While it may not be the first thing you think of when imagining a custom closet, an island can be extremely handy. Use it as a staging area for clothing items, accessories, or shoes that you’re considering wearing that day. Or, use it for folding and sorting. You might even store things you use every day there like accessories or use it as a decorative piece and place fresh flowers on the surface to brighten up your space.
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to find something in a badly-lit closet. Overhead lighting provides some help, but can leave some areas of your closet in the shadows. Custom, embedded lighting ensures an even drape of light over your entire closet, making it easier to see everything when dressing, sorting, and cleaning.
Varied Hang Area Lengths
Items in your closet will naturally hang at different lengths. Folded pants and skirts, for example, hang down a few feet, but long dresses and skirts will require more vertical room.
If you hang all of your clothes in only one hang area, you’ll certainly be wasting space. So instead, consider using varied hang area lengths — long, medium, and double — to maximize your space.
A Valet Rod
Lastly, make planning your outfit for the next day much easier with a valet rod.
A valet rod is an extendable pole that can be pulled out horizontally from the side of a cabinet or wall. As you plan an outfit for tomorrow’s workday or a big event, you can hang your chosen clothing on the rod. When it’s time to get dressed, everything you need will be right there, and you can easily slip the rod back in its place to get it out of the way.
