If clothes could talk, the scoop would be that they never had it so good! Custom closets are the neatest thing since sliced bread.
The concept of having a specific spot for each category of clothing is freeing – never having to guess where to find something is one of the best time savers you could ask for. The customized closet map can read in any number of ways. Some of the best ways to compartmentalize your closet include:
- Rod over rod splits for shorter items
- Slanted shoe shelves or individual cubbyholes
- Item-specific jewelry drawers with locking capability
- Accessory niches for belts, scarves, handbags and hats
The Fantastic Four – Features that Favor the Dressing Experience
Many customized closets have become part closet, part changing room. The idea of getting ready in one spot automatically saves time. For this reason, the following four features support the act of getting ready and make you feel special!
- Mirrors. Purchase a good, accurate mirror that gives you a full figure view (top to bottom) as well as a view from all sides.
- Lighting. While ambient lighting may be calming, general lighting that duplicates natural light is the route to go. You will be able to see the difference between black and navy, and dark orange and red.
- Comfortable Seating. A firm bench gives support and comfort while you are getting dressed. A great place to sit down and put on shoes, or just to take a break as you prepare for your day or evening.
- Seamstress Mannequin. This might seem a little over the top to some, but imagine pulling together an outfit and accessories, and being able to view it through unbiased eyes before you decide to wear it.
There are many more features that you may wish to consider, including: sound system with intercom capability, flat screen television, chaise longue and mini refrigerator to have a cold bottle of Perrier on hand while you prepare your day’s wardrobe. Depending on the size of your walk-in, the sky’s the limit!
