We know your wardrobe turns head, but does your new custom walk-in closet? Make your walk-in just as much of a fashion statement as your outfit. Afterall, your walk-in closet says a lot about you and how you view style and order in your home and throughout your life. Here are five tips that will help you take your walk-in closet to the next level.
1. Showcase your favorite items
Put your favorite purchases as well as your luxury items on display. This won’t only make you happy every time you walk into your closet, it will impress anyone who also enters the space. Think, your collection of Louis Vuitton handbags and Christian Louboutin shoes, or maybe your husband’s impressive arsenal of Italian wool and silk ties. Displaying these items are a great way to add color, style, glamour, and your own personal touch to a standard walk-in closet. We recommend using shelves to display shoes and handbags and a custom tie rack for ties.
2. Take a load off—add seating
Sit down, stay awhile. Install a sitting space adds not only comfort, but functionality. Trying on multiple pairs of shoes to get your outfit just right can be a time-consuming process whether we want to admit it or not. Having seating available to sit and try on a few pairs helps your knees, back, and your patience. Consider anything from custom upholstered chairs or a pouf to a large storage bench with cushions and pillows made of luxurious or trendy fabrics. The added benefit of a storage bench is its practicality of additional storage space!
3. Brighten the experience—add lighting
Don’t just house your clothes and accessories, highlight them! Install superb lighting to really kick your beautiful custom walk-in closet up a notch. Lighting closets is often overlooked, but it’s really important for a few reasons. Good lighting makes it far easier and pleasurable to find what you’re looking; it also beautifying the space at the same time while making the environment bright and inviting. For that little extra something, consider lighted shelves that highlight your favorite items. Or, add a fantastic chandelier or contemporary floor lamp for that personal touch of style and sophistication.
4. Be on permanent vacation—add an island
Islands are the dream addition to any walk-in closet. We recognize that not every walk-in closet has the appropriate space to install one—check out Rule No. 6 for more details on measurements—but for those that do, islands are a wonderful amenity that adds storage, organization, and luxury.
5. Remodel—with luxury materials
What’s more lavish than adding luxury details to your custom walk-in closet? Leather details and furnishings and textured panels are brilliant examples of rich materials that add drama and opulence. Customize your walk-in closet to match your home’s style and your personal taste with the materials that best fit that description.
