Even the most serene of bedrooms can be tainted by disorganized and cluttered closet space. Not being able to know or find what you have can be a daily frustration without the designated storage areas that you have in a custom closet.
Creating a custom closet can completely transform the way you live by adding personalized, functional spaces to your daily routine.
Plus, when the time comes, custom closets sell homes. Having a custom closet can mean the difference between selling fast, above the asking price, and sitting on the market. This addition provides a high return on your investment that you can enjoy if and when you decide to sell.
Custom Closets – How To Add Value to Your Bedroom
Before starting any remodeling work, take a moment to look at the things that you have. Then think of the features that you may need, or want to improve upon. When you sit down with your design-build team, they can help you create a plan that is both cost-effective and in-line with your lifestyle and your storage needs. Here are some ideas that you may want to consider incorporating into your custom closet design.
1. Build a Walk-In Closet
If you don’t have one already, it may be a great idea to design a walk-in closet space. If you have the budget to remove and add walls, a walk-in custom closet can be an amazing investment for obvious reasons when it comes to available storage space.
However, when it comes to adding value to your home, walk-in closets can be crucial. Now more than ever, homebuyers consider walk-in closets a necessity to a move-in-ready home. Like mentioned before, homeowners may see this as a project that they don’t want to take on, and your home can sit on the market for months.
2. Design a Dressing Station in Your Closet
With the extra elbow-room that a walk-in closet provides, you may also want to consider adding a dressing station. The first step is to add a cozy seating space where you can comfortably pick out your outfit and put on your shoes. Then make sure to add a full-body mirror so that you can inspect your outfit from head-to-toe. An optional step that you can take is to include a make-up vanity that allows you to cool off from the steam of the bathroom. This can also be a tranquil area in your custom closet to start your day with a cup of tea.
3. Drawers and Shelving in Your Custom Closet
The most important aspect of your custom closet is your custom storage spaces. Discuss what you need to store in your closet with your design-build team and they can build custom drawers and shelving that store your belongings with some room to grow. They can also help you pick out paint colors and finishes that match your design style. Consider cedarwood shelving for a masculine style or white paint for a classic feel.
Use adjustable clothing rods in hanging spaces to help you store items such as long dresses in a way that makes sense. Then add shoe and purse cubbies to allow you to see everything that you have from the walkway.
For accessories, add shallow drawers with built-in dividers to keep everything untangled and visible.
4. Catch-all space
When you get home, what is the first thing that you do? Throwdown your keys, bags, and wallet. Then begins the endless cycle of losing them and rushing around first thing in the morning to get yourself together. How do you eliminate that problem? Create a catch-all space in your custom closet. Create an alcove where you can add a small dresser. Here you can store items that you use every day, such as your purse and sunglasses. This keeps everything in one place and ready for the next time you need to use them.
5. Custom Closet: Lighting
One of the best ways to create a cohesive space in your custom closet is with lighting. First, install a statement lighting piece in the center to anchor the space and tie in the design.
You also may want to add integrated lighting to drawers and cabinets. This can help to illuminate what you have stored while adding a bit of luxury to your morning. Others enjoy the ease of motion activated lighting in the closet.
