When you are helping to design a custom home, there are some parts that you can’t overlook. Forgetting about the closets could mean that you run into more frustration than you are banking on, and that could leave you feeling unhappy with how your ideas developed. Here are some useful tips for how to design all the closets in your new home!
Before continuing, you must decide if you want a walk-in closet or a reach-in closet. This choice will be determined by how much space an opening you already have. Walk-in closets can accommodate sliding and bi-fold types. However, they both have one advantage over a traditional swing door – it won’t take up as much floor space to open and close. There’s something to be said about making efficient use of the square footage in your custom home.
Once you have selected the type of doors, the next step is to select the flooring. Take a minute to think about the area around the closet – will the room be carpeted or have hardwood instead? You can mix and match if you are planning on using the closet for storage in the bedroom. But in an area where you intend on grooming or putting on makeup, it might make more sense to have tile, vinyl, or laminate instead.
Although closets are typically used to store clothes and coats, you can do more with it. When you are designing a custom home, you can make the closets as large as you want while also accounting for other types of storage space. It all comes down to what you want and what you need. Hanging rods, built-in shelves, and even drawers can be used to take your closets to the next level.
Finally, it’s time to think about what other features you can add to your closets all over your custom home. It doesn’t matter which room you want the closet to be. Two ideas to consider are mirrors and seating. If you have the chance to make your closet match what you’ve always dreamed of, then now is the time!
