Everyone wants a home that they can’t wait to return to each and every day. We believe to have the best of the best in your home; you’ll need a walk-in closet in the master suite. Don’t just take our word for it. According to USA Today, 60 percent of homebuyers said they would be willing to pay more for such a feature. On top of that, 44 percent of people between the ages of 35 and 54 view this feature as “very important.” To put it simply, the extra space a walk-in closet provides offers your home organization that will put you at ease and allow the belongings you’ve gathered throughout the years to stay organized. Not to mention, it is a great selling point for both buyers and sellers. With that said, here are some insider tricks that you can use to add character and personalization to the custom closets in your home! Premium Lighting Lighting plays an important role in every room of the house, especially in the closet, and in order to achieve that personal retreat feeling, it is vital to get it right. Light fixtures must be strategically placed to illuminate clothing and can even be used to create a focal point with the use of a high-end chandelier. The perfect lighting can transform any closet into a cozy dressing room and make the space much more inviting. Additionally, cabinet and in-drawer lighting is becoming extremely popular, which can be incorporated into your custom closet to brighten up those dark spaces. Matching Hangers Everyone is familiar with the standard clothes hanger because they’ve been around since the 1800s – without much change. Don’t fix what’s not broken, right? Although the basic design of clothes hangers have practically existed without dramatic transformation over the years, the material that they are made from can vary from plastic to wire to wood and other materials. But, there’s a problem that can make a custom closet feel not-so-premium or tranquil and it has to do with aesthetics. A closet that is full of mismatched hangers can look unkempt and messy because clothes cannot be evenly spaced apart. Instead, with the use of matching, premium hangers, an appearance that flows can be created that gives the closet a boutique-like look that has a calming effect. Built-In Organizers Practical, everyday items like jewelry and ties should be kept in one place that’s on display for quick access. For instance, a glass topped center island can be the perfect place to keep jewelry neat and organized – think of it like the displays at a fine jewelry store. The jewelry display can serve as a piece of closet art while packing a double duty punch as a practical storage solution. The same concept can be applied to neckties, pocket squares and bow ties as they can be laid out in a fashionable manner. Shoe Display There’s no clothing culprit quite like shoes when it comes to disorganization. Whether they are left by the door, beside the couch or next to the bed, for a clean home shoes belong in the closet. Putting a collection of shoes on display in a custom closet can form great habits when it comes to where your family leaves their shoes. From boots and heels to loafers, a shoe display will make an attractive, functional space that homeowners can show off to friends and family. Expressive Wallpaper Another trick that is used to make a custom closet more personalized is the utilization of wallpaper. While some people are still a little apprehensive about wallpaper, it can really signify the homeowners’ style and taste. Most brands of wallpaper are easy to apply and take off, so adding a pop of something interesting is simple. Plus, a little goes a long way, whether it’s used as an accent wall or applied behind a clothing rod, it can add depth and character. The more a custom closet is personalized and styled, the more likely it will remain clean, organized and beautiful. Are you ready to create the walk-in closet of your dreams?
