Designing a custom closet comes with an array of benefits. Now that you’re ready to start your custom closet plans, it’s time to begin the designs! We recommend reading up on closet design trends and tips before you start planning or head to a professional. That way, you already have a good idea of what you want your closet to look like!
Start by considering that your needs may change–if you opt for a fully adjustable closet system with preset holes you will be able to adjust your closet design to your precise needs. This means that you will be able to set up your hanging sections differently if you and your partner are of different heights. It also means you can transition where shelves and rods sit so that if you’re transitioning your wardrobe seasonally, you can adjust your closet to match.
Use Your Space
One of the biggest obstacles when designing a custom closet is making sure you’re making full use of the space you have. You want to have a full layout of any potential spacing issues like light switches, access panels, and electrical outlets. Using a 3-D design system is a great way to make sure you’re working with the space you have in the best way. One of the biggest ways to save design space is by making sure to utilize a wall mounted system, as floor mounted systems can take up 3-5” of storage space at the base. You may also consider doing a grander remodel to include a walk-in closet, which would mean adding space in a new way.
Balance Shelves, Drawers, and Hanging Space
One way to help create the perfect closet is to take into consideration your actual closet usage. How much space do you need for hanging items versus shelved or drawered items? Hangers are great for suits and formal attire, but if you have large amounts of workout clothes adding more drawer space might be more beneficial long-term. Looking at what you will be storing in your closet and then considering alternative ways to store them based on your new closet space may help you develop a better, more streamlined closet.
