Designing a custom closet can be a challenging task, especially if you’re working with a limited amount of space. However, there are some tips and tricks that you can use to maximize efficiency and make the most out of your available space. In this blog post, we’ll share some of our top tips for designing a space-efficient custom closet. Whether you’re looking to save on square footage or just want to make better use of the space you have, these tips will help you get the job done.
Use All Verticle Space
Take advantage of all available space, up to the ceiling and down to your feet. Bins on high shelves are great for storing items you don’t use every day but need access to in case something comes up unexpectedly (like a wedding). Even rolling out boxes that sit nearby can be perfect if there’s enough room left over after rotation purposes; just make sure these “extra” places aren’t TOO accessible because then they’ll end up filled with dirties clothes.
When considering a custom closet design, you must think about lighting. Natural light from skylights or windows is great but beware of fading sunlight that can produce shadows on what you’re trying to see inside your closets when it’s not available. Incandescent bulbs pose hazards in these tight spaces due to heat, so they should be avoided altogether. Fluorescent lights are one common alternative that is likely to be code compliant. Another alternative lighting option is LED lights which can really create a custom look since they can easily change colors.
It’s important to know your wardrobe — and habits. Closets, more than any other space in the house, work best if you make sure ahead of time how they will be used! For example, if you wear a lot of dresses, you’ll need more hanging space. If you have a lot of pants, you’ll need you might prefer hanging or folding them. Why not design your closet to make it easy for you? A place where clothes are organized by type and color so that all the pieces in one category can be found together. Designated spaces on shelves or drawers allow more room than just hanging storage; this way everything has its own assigned spot instead of taking over an entire space with messy piles collected throughout.
Think About Visibility
It is important for people to be able to see all of their clothing, not just what’s on top. This way you can choose which items go where and make sure nothing gets lost in between! There are many different types of options available like wire bins with transparent covers so that everything inside doesn’t get hidden from view; acrylic fronts which give the illusion when opened up completely flat (or closed)and glass doors/drawers
Don’t Forget To Look Down
For a closet to be warm and inviting, the floor needs some thought. Carpet is great for warmth underfoot-just keep in mind vacuuming can sometimes get tricky since there’s little space. Wood or vinyl floors offer better traction which makes them easier to keep clean. They are also a more durable option and can add value to your home if you ever decide to sell.
Closets need a steady flow of air to keep the mold and mildew at bay. A small fan will help remove excess moisture from closets, even when you’re not opening up your closet door! For really musty closets that don’t get much natural light because they are lower on ground level – invest in a dehumidifier for some added Relief. A large part of having clean clothes is making sure there’s enough space inside where all those pesky insects can’t breed easily
