Unique Ideas for Your Custom Closet

When you think of your closet space, a few things probably come to mind—it’s the place where you rush to pick out your outfits, get changed, and put laundry away. 

We’ll let you in on a closet hack: Your closet space can be so much more than what you’re using it for. For many people with a Closet Works custom closet, their closet space has been transformed into a relaxing space where they can focus on getting ready for the day, an evening event, or unwinding at night. 

When you decide to move forward with your custom closet, it’s worth considering how you can get the most bang for your buck. If creativity, craftsmanship, and excellent customer service aren’t enough, let’s talk about out-of-the-box ways you can potentially use your new space. 

Island Space in Your Closet

Installing an island in your closet provides extra countertop space and has many benefits depending on what you need to use it for. Bending over repeatedly can lead to back pain and makes it more difficult to get around to put baskets of clothes away or keep up with the organization.

Finding enough extra space to fold clothes or just have a little extra storage can be hard when you’re using the predetermined space your home was built with. Not to mention, island space is a great opportunity to install some cabinets and drawers for some discrete and additional storage space!

We have a plethora of countertop options so even styling your island can fit perfectly into the design of the closet you already have. We have granite options to add a luxurious look to your space, cost-effective options for our high-pressure laminate, and more.

Pull-Out Features

Valet bars in a closet space can be used for multiple reasons—all of which are designed to streamline your mornings.

When picking your outfit for the day ahead, having a space to swap out pieces allows you to see articles of clothing as an outfit without having to lay them flat and risk getting them wrinkled or dirty. Hanging up your clothes will also simplify your morning routine. 

Pull-out drawers are a great way to save space while storing items. A pull-out shelving system for shoes keeps them safe and tucked away, but they’re still easy to access when you need them. This shelving system also works for accessories like handbags and more.

Pull-out tie racks are a great option for keeping expensive ties in pristine shape while viewing all of the options you have in your wardrobe.

A Vanity Space

Steam from a bathroom can damage expensive skin care products and makeup, and throwing on makeup in the car can leave you rushing with bad lighting. Getting ready in the morning can be a one-stop-shop when you opt for a vanity in your closet space. With the right storage for your products, high-quality mirrors, and beautiful lighting elements, keeping up with your skincare routine or putting on your makeup has never been easier. 

Choosing your countertop option is the first step in this process. We recommend going with one of our solid surface options for a nonporous space to work with liquids and serums. This is a great cost-effective way to create the vanity of your dreams. 

Next, let’s talk about storage. There are a few ways to go about this, and those include building in a space-saving storage space you can get to by lifting up your work area and creating less vertical movement. Pull-out drawers are also an option to keep your work area in place while you access what you need. 

Lighting features can easily be installed in closet spaces—specifically your vanity space—to enhance your skincare and makeup routines. LED strip lighting can be added around your high-quality vanity mirror for optimal lighting so you know how your products will look once you head out to your destination. 

An optimized custom closet allows you to leave space in your home open for other purposes. If you’re ready to maximize how your closet space is being used, click here to schedule your free consultation!
