How to Drastically Improve Your Home with a Walk-In Closet

closet-rod-height-dimension

Want to increase your home value while also increasing usable space for your home? Consider a walk-in closet. Today’s homeowners need a spacious place to store their clothing, accessories, and shoes. A walk-in closet provides all of this, plus a functional elegant space to get ready for your day. While you can start by measuring available space, closet rod height dimensions, and depth of your closet, bringing in a professional designer often is the best way to go.

Increase Home Value

Your walk-in closet will increase your home value. In fact, in some cases adding a closet can make a “bonus” room be considered a bedroom. Consult with a designer to see how to best increase your storage space. You may be able to use an available area by expanding closet rod height dimensions, clearing out unnecessary clothing, and installing a closet organizer system. In other cases, your closet designer may recommend knocking out a wall to expand a space.

Use a Closet Organizer System

A customized closet system adapts to your space, allowing you to store your items elegantly and efficiently. While you can purchase some systems at the store, a customized system has the benefit of truly functioning uniquely to your space. Your home will have a sense of much more space. Store your items in a practical attractive way that is perfect for your unique lifestyle.

Store Clutter Elegantly

We all have clutter. Maybe you have boxes of old photo albums, yearbooks, shoes, or broken jewelry. Maybe you have a box of stuff that belongs to your kids who moved away long ago. Or maybe you just have an incredible collection of accessories, boots, or ties. Whatever the clutter in your life, store it elegantly to make your home feel cleaner and more enjoyable. Clutter causes stress in your life. Real stress.

Some ideas:

  • Customized closet systems for accessories and shoes for your walk-in closet
  • Elegant baskets and storage containers for smaller keepsake items
  • Store items in a functional way like most used items at arm’s reach and rarely used items high up
  • Give away or toss a quarter of your keepsakes (you know you can do it!)
  • Customized drawers
  • Talk with your design professional about how you can store your cherished items in an attractive way in your walk-in closet

How to Design Closets of All Sizes Big and Small

organized-closets

A badly designed closet makes the difference between a beautiful useful space and a costly haphazard clutter zone. Organized closets provide you with ample space for your clothes, shoes, and valuables while also providing you a feeling of spacious style. This upcoming year transform your closets with these incredible closet designs.

Ergonomics

What do we mean by using ergonomics when you design your new closet? You want your customized organized closets to fit your natural patterns of movement. For example, if your spouse only reaches five feet tall and you place their favorite shoes and accessories on a shelving unit a foot higher than their head, your closet will quickly become a nuisance and possible hazard.

If you have to think about children or pets, do you want to have sharp and small items within their grasp? Or valuables and precious photos? Design your closet space logically. What are some tips?

  • Avoid super deep shelves
  • Put often-used items at eye level and within arm’s reach
  • Leave rarely used items and shoes on the very bottom or very top shelves
  • Store valuables high away from children
  • Consider using all the space by stacking shelves
  • Itemize your clothing by those you use often versus those you rarely use
  • Baskets and boxes can hold small items

You may want to add drawers to store some items. Consider placing them where they will be most helpful. Contact our experienced and friendly staff about our numerous customized closets and organization systems.

Use the Space

Maybe you have additional space available throughout your home? Creating a new walk-in closet often needs a little engineering and imagination. You can install a small closet or a spacious walk-in closet. With an extensive variety of customized designs and options, our professionals can help you create the closet of our dreams.

How Do You Design a Closet?

custom-closet-design

You can transform any closet space from a cluttered disaster to an elegant place of functionality and simple efficiency. How to get the closet closet design of your dreams? Whether you have to work with a walk-in closet space, a cluttered urban apartment closet, or decide to design your own custom space, consider these important tips.

Reimagine Your Closet

You need to really look at your closet space. Custom closet design requires a little bit of imagination. If you are starting from a clean slate, consider how you will use your closet. What will you store there? Who will use the closet? If you need to renovate an existent closet, empty out the closet to truly see its potential.

Measure the Space

Be sure to take accurate measurements of the space. Decide how much footage you want to dedicate to hanging clothes, shoes, boxes of memorabilia, hats, or office equipment. Try to imagine the space that you will actually need.

Organize Your Belongings

No matter how beautiful your custom closet design will be, if you have too much clutter, it will not serve its purpose. What to do? Take out all of the items in your closet. Set up three bins: Keep, Toss, Donate. Take each item in your closet and choose a bin for the item. Aim for discarding or donating at least one third of the items for the closet.

Think Ergonomically

If you are petite, don’t store your shoes six feet above the ground. If you are very tall or have a bad back, avoid putting necessary items on the ground. Think about your most likely movements when going through your closet. Place the most-used items in easy reach. If you have small children or pets, place items like jewelry, shoes, or scissors out of reach.

3 Best Closet Organization Ideas 2019

modular-closet-systems

Your closet probably looks like most of our closets – a disorganized mess of shoes, clothes, papers, and other random items. You don’t have to keep your closet looking that way. Instead check out some of these great organizations ideas, from modular closet systems to the KonMari method. From affordable to ultra-luxurious, find the right closet system for you.

1. Custom Closet

Before you splurge on a pricy system or throw out half of your personal belongings, take the time to speak to a professional about creating a custom closet space. If you have a large walk-in closet space, our professionals can help you find the perfect way to customize your closet with the right modular closet systems, lighting, shelving, and storage.

We have the perfect selection in custom cabinetry, lighting, walk-in closets, and closet organizers. Our experienced professionals can help you find the perfect closet for your home.

2. KonMari Method

Maybe you live in a small urban apartment and don’t have the option to customize your home. The KonMari Method of organization encourages you to throw out any items that do not bring you “joy”. What does this mean? Try these simple steps:

  1. Pull out everything, yes everything, in your closet
  2. Go through each item one-by-one
  3. Ask yourself if the item makes you happy inside
  4. If not, put the item in the discard pile
  5. If the item does make you happy, then keep the item

Seems pretty simple? You might want to start with less personal items like shoes or books before tackling mementos and your old prom dress. By the end you will find that you will probably end up discarding half of what you own. It really is that simple!

3. Buy a Closet System

If you have a smaller closet but want to maximize space, look into buying a closet system. There are options from Elga, Algot, ClosetMaid, California Closets, Modular, Easy Track, and more. Speak with our closet professionals and designers about the best system for your space.
