At More Space Place, we have a variety of options for custom closet design. In this article, we want to put a spotlight on two of our most popular styles: traditional and modern! Which style works best for you? Keep reading to find out.
Go for a modern closet style if…
You live in a modern or contemporary home. If your home was more recently built or was renovated to have a modern interior, then a modern closet style should work best for you. It will match the interior of your home and blend in seamlessly.
You are short on space. When designing a smaller closet, modern closets can feel less cluttered and more streamlined. With smooth, sleek lines, they often take up less space than traditional closets or give the appearance of doing so.
You like a minimalist aesthetic. Modern closets are sleek and sharp typically built with a neutral color palette. This makes them ideal for people who prefer a minimalist style for their home.
Go for a traditional closet style if…
You have a historic home. In older or historic homes, a modern closet can look out of place. For a closet that blends seamlessly into your home, opt for a traditional closet that can be built to match your rooms.
You like a closet that feels refined and elegant. There’s no denying that a traditional closet can give an air of elegance. With crown molding, real wood options, and subtle design touches, a traditional closet can add lots of refined personality to any room.
You enjoy vintage style. If you’re the type of person who prefers vintage furniture with lots of personality, then you may enjoy the look of a traditional closet more than a modern one.
Still Not Sure? Why Not Both!
While these two closets styles are on opposite sides of the design spectrum, there’s no reason that they can’t still meet in the middle! If you enjoy some design elements of traditional closets and others from a modern closet, our team of experts can work with you to find a closet design that incorporates both.

For someone who loves to have their wardrobe on display, a closet with open shelving is a great choice. Display your shoes, handbags, jewelry, accessories, and clothes on stylishly built shelves, hanging rods, or cubbies. Open shelving will also make it easier to find what you’re looking for when getting ready.
Modern & Clean-Cut
Enhance a modern or minimalist home by upgrading to a modern, sleek closet model. Crisp white or black shelving and a simple, functional design will make any room feel clean and modern. For an added touch of style, consider sliding glass doors.
If your personal style is more rustic and down-to-earth, we can design a closet perfect for you, too! A wood-built closet with a natural finish will provide warmth and a natural aesthetic. When designing for a rustic home, we love the appearance of dark-stained wood.
Crown molding can be used to add understated elegance to your closet – and your home. Many of our walk-in closets are designed with crown molding, but we can also incorporate this style element into any closet we design.
Colorful & Unique
Your closet doesn’t have to be neutral or fade into the background. Add a personal touch to your home with a closet painted in a vibrant shade such as green, royal blue, or even red. Consider what color tones would work best with your home and go from there! A colorful closet could be the perfect accent piece for your bedroom.

When it comes to the material of your new doors, drawers, shelves, and other closet elements, you have a few options to choose from! Wood is a popular choice as it brings natural, welcoming beauty to your space. Plus, it can be stained to any color or tone you like. We find many homeowners love the look of white-painted wood custom closets for a clean and classic look.
While wood is homey and classic, glass elements in your closet add a tone of modern elegance. When you have glass shelving doors, for example, you can opt for clear or frosted. Clear glass beautifully displays your belongings and makes them easy to find, while frosted hides them a bit more.
Drawers, doors, and shelves also come with knobs and handles! We don’t miss a detail when it comes to design, and even the material you use for these smaller elements plays a big role in the final look. Accent the rest of your design with material like gold or chrome.
Light fixtures are another aspect easily overlooked, but they too bring cohesion to your final design. Perhaps you will go for a crystal chandelier or choose matte black lighting fixtures to match your knobs and handles. Choosing the right lighting not only sets the mood in your closet, but is a style statement on its own!
