4 Elements To Keep In Mind When Designing A Walk-In Closet

Having a walk-in closet is a great addition for any home improvement. Whether you’re adding one or making changes to an existing walk in closet, there are so many ways in which you can make this space functional, yet elegant. Herewith are some points to take into consideration when considering the design:

Choose the Lay-out of Your Walk-in Closet

When conducting renovations in your master bedroom and ensuite bathroom, you’ll want to take these two areas into consideration when planning the layout for your walk-in closet. Consider a “U” or “L” shape, a “his” and “hers” area, an open plan, or will it be a walk-through closet perhaps?

 

Choosing the Furniture for Your Walk-In Closet

Of course, all of these layouts can provide for a seated area in the middle of the room should you wish to have this. If not, you can use the space to put your favorite jewelry pieces on display or just a coffee table with a ornaments or flowers.

There is also the option of installing a dressing island. Not only does this double up as storage space for smaller items, but you can make use of the dressing island to lay out your clothing and accessories for more than one occasion.

Mirrors and Lighting

The purpose of a walk-in closet is to have space where you can move between bedroom and bathroom to get dressed and ready for the day. Think carefully about the type of lighting you’ll need, as well as placement of mirrors and how the light reflects off it.

Downlights are ideal as they can be turned on full brightness to give you the proper lighting you need to match clothing colours and apply make-up. Install them around the perimeter of the room, and above specific focus areas.

A beautiful pendant in the centre of the walk-in closet, above an island or ottoman, not only adds style and glamour but with the downlights off or turned softer, will create a sense of elegance and calm, especially when turning in at the end of the day.

Decor and Style

Just like any other areas of your home, your walk-in closet should be complimentary in style and design to the rest of the home. By keeping the colour scheme neutral, the transition between the different spaces becomes more natural.

You want this space to be light, clean and free from clutter to ensure you can move around freely when getting ready to leave the home.
