Whether you just got new custom closets installed or are in the process of designing them, you’ll want to take advantage of your new area as best as possible. Your custom closet could free up space for new creative projects that you never had room for with your old closet. Instead of merely hanging your clothes back up and shutting those closet doors, consider a few of the ideas below from More Space Place Sarasota to get creative with your new custom closets.
If the space allows, consider adding a few features in your walk-in closet to make it a special dressing room rather than just a clothes storage space. Add a fancy rug, a cozy chair, and perhaps a lighting feature like a small chandelier or a modern floor lamp to create a stylish feel. Don’t forget to bring in a full-length mirror as a finishing touch – this could even be attached to the back of your closet door!
Even if you don’t end up spending a lot of time in your closet, it’s important not to neglect this space. Instead of leaving the walls a boring white, pick up some adhesive wallpaper to create a feature wall. Bring in bright baskets or drawers to add a pop of color to your shelves. If you have a shared closet, consider color-coordinating spaces with paint or curtains.
Your closet can be a cozy place to get ready in the mornings, so why not set up a handy station? If the space allows, you can add the appropriate items to make your morning routine a breeze. Bring in a small vanity, equipped with a mirror and lighting for makeup, or acquire a small espresso stand and adorn it with your favorite brewer, cream, and sweetener. Whatever your morning calls for, a custom closet can be designed to allow you plenty of space to create the perfect morning station in your Sarasota home.
If a good DIY project is up your alley, then you may consider making curtains or cushions for your new closets. Sew curtains out of any fabric you like, or pick up some premade ones at the store. Hang your curtains on suspension rods to enclose certain shelves and spaces. If you have a bench area or often find yourself perched on top of a set of drawers, sew up a seat cushion to add comfort and style to the space!
