1. The “U”, “I”, and “L” Shaped Closets

Depending on the existing closet or the space you’ve set aside for the closet, feel free to choose from either of the three shapes for your new closet. The good news is that straight (“I”), “U”, or “L” walk-in closets are all viable options in terms of storing your dresses, clothes, shoes, and anything in between. However, you will need to have three walls for the “U” shaped walk-in closet to maximize space whereas the “L” shaped closet will require only two walls. For the straight or the “I” shaped closet, you will enjoy the advantage of making easy adjustments should you need to incorporate more storage space. What is more, you can modify it to have your own section as well as that of your partner.

2. Closets with Islands and Peninsulas

Custom home owners have taken things a notch higher in the way they create space in their closets by making them stylish and cozy. Incorporating islands and peninsulas is a distinctive feature for new closets. In case your current closet seems to be running out of storage space, the best way to go about this is using a wardrobe island. Thanks to the extra drawers that offer sufficient storage, any space issues that you earlier had will become a thing of the past.

3. Lighted Closets

You can never go wrong with lighting when it comes to setting the mood. Whether it’s in the bedroom or kitchen, closets with cool lights not only increase visibility but also enhance the attractiveness of a room. Whether you have a traditional closet or are in the process of building your custom house, this is a great option to enjoy a tad more of beauty. During your home renovation, ensure that your existing closet is fitted with your preferred lighting in order to get a result that you will love.  The shoes compartment, for example, will do with some light in the background. Then on the wall adjacent to the shoes’ compartment, you could insert a fluorescent light fixture with white plexiglass.
