Shoe rack, built-in hamper, a full length mirror…wouldn’t it be nice if you could actually chose the exact measurements and features of your closet? Actually, you can- that’s exactly what a custom closet provides. These are wonderful when you’re building a new home or even finally getting around to remodeling your current one. If you’re in the market for a custom-made closet, be sure to consider the following:
#1 Where will your shoes go?
Ideally, the best place for your shoes is inside your closet. Even if you have many pairs of shoes, your closet can be designed to hold them all within arm’s length. One popular idea is to include pull-out interior shoe drawers that look like cabinets from the outside.
#2 What kind of storage do you need?
Your storage needs can be fulfilled in several different ways, sometimes all being used at once. Wicker baskets, cabinets, drawers and more can all be used to store clothes long-term for the next season or just until you decide to pull it out tomorrow.
#3 Do you need to hang suits or long dresses?
If you have an array of long, fancy gowns or business suits, hanging them properly should be one of your top priorities when designing your new closet. You may consider having one section of the closet open for these long items to hang while other areas are more sectioned off for shirt drawers.
#4 Will your hamper be inside or elsewhere in your room?
If you don’t like the idea of a “dirty clothes basket” being out in your room, you aren’t alone. That’s why many people are opting for a built-in laundry hamper right in their closet. Simply line the interior of the hamper with a removable linen sack and take it with you when there is washing to do. If you have a pull-out trash can under your kitchen sink, it’s the same idea.
#5 Do you have the space for a seat?
Where are you going to put your shoes on? On a seat, of course! With many custom closets, the designer and builder are able to work out enough space for an ottoman or bench for you to sit on.
