Designer Details: Creating an Haute Custom Closet

Your home should be a collection of things you love, and your closet is no exception! Having a beautiful and functional space to keep your wardrobe organized is easy with the seamless design-to-installation process with C&C Cabinets.  

Been dreaming about your custom walk-in closets? We share what’s trending in luxury living so you can get the extraordinary closet design you crave.

Designing a Chic Closet

When designing a custom closet, we first chat with you about your desires for your space. Then we take a detailed inventory of your items and how you would like those to be stored.  

From shoes and clothes to accessories and seasonal items, everything has a place. Now, that’s happiness built in.

We also take cues from your existing space and its architectural and design elements.  

Additionally, photos from you help show us the direction you want to go in. And we have pictures from our previous closet installations to illustrate details you didn’t even know you would be interested in.  

It’s imperative that we have an open dialogue throughout the entire process. This allows for the perfect haute custom closet of your dreams!

Our Favorite Design Features

Some beautiful features that we love in custom walk-in closets are:

  • Complex, angled segments
  • Feature walls for shoes, boots, hats and handbags
  • Custom drawers for accessories like jewelry, sunglasses, and belts.  

Other exciting features we love are remote-controlled automated wardrobe lifts as well as hidden electronic locks on vanity doors.

Some luxury details that our clients love include a fold-out ironing board, belt and tie racks, a valet bar, and a built-in or tilt-out hamper. And if there’s space, a closet island or a safe are highly coveted elements that we see requested often!

Let There be Light

There are so many ways that exquisite lighting can bring custom closets to life. LED ribbon lighting is an attractive way to showcase all-around cabinetry or molding. Adding puck lighting or a statement fixture are gorgeous ways to add overhead light.


Custom lighting in display cases is stunning for high-end items.

Small Closet Space, Meet High Style

We love working with smaller closets because those spaces will have the most significant effect with an excellent design. It’s a great way for us to showcase our creativity.  

Unique design elements like distinctive hardware, high gloss drawer faces, or fun wood finishes make a big impact. There’s nothing more satisfying than solving a problem for our clients!

No matter the size of your space, C & C Cabinets can design a stunning haute couture closet to display your clothing, jewelry, and shoes in style. Schedule a consultation with us today!

Current Closet Trends

One of the biggest things we’re seeing from clients lately is creating multi-purpose, functional areas in custom walk-in closets.  

These include features like:

  • Make-up stations
  • Laundry sorting, folding, and ironing stations
  • A reading nook
  • And of course, storage for seasonal items in addition to the clothes, shoes, and accessories that are worn every day and on special occasions.  

We also love designing high-end closets with the layering of luxurious finishes that create depth. For example, we’ll blend many different materials and textures with bold or dramatic pops of color.  

You might see varying shades on textured wood with a different texture for wallpaper paired with brushed and glossy fixtures in a contrasting shade. Then adding a pop of color to a piece of furniture will pull everything together!
