The concept of a luxury, custom closet is not new, but has been gaining in popularity in recent years, particularly among empty nesters, who have the space to build a closet and the wardrobe to fill it.
The beauty of a custom closet is that it is just that – entirely custom. It can be created and customized to accommodate a person’s entire wardrobe and accessory collection and can include spaces for items such as floor-length dresses and bulky jackets, small purses and large handbags, shoes and boots, belts and ties and jewellery trays, as well as rod and counter heights that are comfortable for the owner to reach.
If such a project is on your to-do list, I recommend starting with a budget.
You’ll also want to a realistic estimate of the space you require for your new closet. A professional can assess your wardrobe and make recommendations for the overall size of the closet and amount of space that should be allocated to hanging storage, shelves, drawers, etc.
You will also want to determine your goals for the space: Increase hanging space? Boost open storage to accommodate dozen of sweaters? Create separate shelves for shoes and boots of different heights?
Prioritize your needs and wants for your new closet and work with a professional to check off as many of the items on your list as possible — while sticking to your bottom line.
