Closet Design Mistakes You Don't Want to Repeat

Designing a custom master closet requires thoughtful planning and creative problem-solving.  

Some mistakes that you don't want to repeat include:  

  • Ignoring lighting: Poorly lit closets can make it incredibly challenging to find what you want quickly. Incorporate different forms of light, such as recessed, spot, and track lighting, into your design plan. Consider the location of the light fixtures and the type of bulbs to ensure optimal brightness and visibility.
  • Inadequate space planning: Not appropriately utilizing the available space can lead to a cluttered or cramped space. Ensure you allot space for every item type, considering your wardrobe habits. Don't forget to include room for bulkier items like seasonal clothing or luggage.
  • Lack of adaptability: Fashion trends and your own style choices evolve. Although a custom wardrobe is a long-term investment, it should be adaptable enough to accommodate changing wardrobe needs. Use adjustable shelves and rods or modular custom cabinets that can be reconfigured as needed.
  • Disregarding aesthetics: A closet is as much a part of your home as any other room. While functionality is vital, you shouldn't overlook the style factor. It should reflect your taste and should be a place that you enjoy using. That’s why we love helping clients go custom!

Learning from these common design mistakes can help you create a closet that not only serves its primary purpose but also enhances the beauty and functionality of your home.
