We’ll break down key elements when it comes this type of closet design below.
Contemporary Design Basics
Contemporary design is all about the here and now. Although certain elements may borrow from the past and feel a touch nostalgic, the overall look is something that speaks to the present. However, contemporary design isn’t just about following the current trends and creating something that is disposable. When contemporary designs are done with proper planning, they can age extremely well and provide a sophisticated look. Here are a few key elements when it comes to nailing a contemporary design.
Clean & Flat Panels
Contemporary cl0sets are often sleek and neat. Look to flat-styled panels to achieve the look. Shaker profiles also work well and add a touch of nostalgia. When it comes to finishes and colors, white is a solid option which let your clothes take center stage. Other contemporary finishes include textured wood grains in a cool-toned brown or gray. An espresso or smooth black finish can also work, although we usually recommend it in large spaces.
Keep It Open
It’s all about keeping spaces open. Keep your closet devoid of clutter for a neat appearance. Keep accessories and items on display to a minimum. Utilize cabinet doors to keep clothes and accessories tucked away. And spacious drawers and tilt out hampers can help keep dirty clothes out of view. Keeping everything in its place will ensure that your walk-in (or reach-in) has a nice flow to it, giving you an airy open feel.
If you choose to give your closet a fully built-in look, don’t neglect moldings and baseboards. Flat styled pieces to match your cabinets and drawers are the way to go when it comes to contemporary design. And simple bar pulls, which come in a variety of metals, are another great feature. Avoid pulls and cabinet knobs that are flashy or ornamental.
