4 Ideas For New Closets
Whether your closet is large or small, there are ways to make it better. Many closets can be better organized. Here comes four great closet design ideas.
Color coordinate frequently. An even, regular color palette helps this closet feel extra organized. Not only are the bins and pullouts mostly tan, the majority of the visible clothing is in shades of blue and gray, black, white and caramel. This closet is essentially a neutrals heaven.
Face your shoes toes out. If you’re a shoe-lover and lucky enough to be considering a closet remodel or redesign, you might consider building in storage for your shoes. But even if your budget allows for only a freestanding rack (as opposed to built-ins), facing the toes out makes it easier to find the right pair in the morning rush.
Hang a chandelier. If you’ve got the space and the budget, hanging a chandelier as shown in this photo — can instantly dress up a closet area. This spacious closet certainly falls into the aspirational category. Given its many bays of cabinets and rest seat, it feels like a fancy boutique.
Add some windows. If you’re remodeling and creating a new closet, you might consider including windows in your closet. This suggestion does have its downsides — you certainly need to think about protecting your clothing from the sun, and you’ll also want to consider privacy. But If you can work around both of those potential issues (with drapes and a private view, perhaps), then windows can bring in lovely natural light to help you choose your daily attire.
Besides, put extra storage in a hallway or mudroom. These built-in cabinets and drawers make a great place to tuck away backpacks and boots and other everyday necessities, all beautifully hidden behind closed doors.
