The closet is one of the most important spaces in your home. It's where you store all your clothes, accessories, and shoes--and it's also where you get dressed each morning!
As such, it's important to have an organized and functional space that makes getting ready easy and fun.
In this post, we'll be looking at some of the top closet design trends you should have in mind so that when you're ready to start planning out your new closet (or renovating an existing one), you'll know exactly what kind of look suits your style best.
Maximizing Storage and Space
Closets are getting bigger, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for storage. Instead of having a single closet with one set of shelves and rods, think about how you can maximize the space in your bedroom by adding custom shelving that can be used for everything from shoes to purses. You can also get built-in closet organizers like drawers or cubbies that help keep things organized without taking up too much room on the floor. If there's an empty wall in your bedroom or bathroom, consider hanging hooks or installing a full-length mirror on it so that it doesn't feel crowded when you're trying on clothes.
Using sustainable materials
As people become more aware of the environment, they're looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint wherever possible--including in their closets. If you're looking to make your closet more eco-friendly or sustainable, consider using bamboo flooring or other natural elements such as wood panels instead of carpeting or vinyl tiles (which are not biodegradable). You can also choose paints made with low VOCs (volatile organic compounds), so they don't pollute the air around them as much.
Incorporating Color and Texture
Paint is a great way to add colour and texture to your closet. You can paint the walls and incorporate multiple finishes when it comes to shelves and doors even in bright or unexpected colours. Remember that wallpaper is still relevant in interior design, incorporate a wall of it for an even more dramatic effect. If you don't want to commit to painting or wallpapering your entire closet, consider just painting one section of it.
Hooks, rods and shelves are great, but if you want to make sure your closet looks neat and tidy from every angle, drawers are also an option. You can even get creative with labelling systems or custom dividers that help keep everything in place.
Task lighting: Task lighting is a must for every closet. It helps you see what you're doing and keeps your clothes looking their best by eliminating shadows and wrinkles. If possible, incorporate natural light into the design of your closet so that it can be used as both task and ambient (general) lighting.
LED lights: LEDs are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, last longer than CFLs, and emit less heat than halogen bulbs. They're also available in a wide range of colours--from warm white to cool blue--so they'll work with most decor styles. You can even incorporate motion sensors that turn them on and off automatically.
In the coming years, we'll see more and more accessories being used in closets. These include mirrors, pull-out racks and accessibility solutions that can help create a smarter space. You may also want to consider incorporating seating into your closet design--this will make it easier for you to get dressed in the morning.
Creating an Open Concept
Not all closets have to be behind closet doors. You don’t even require a closet space. An organizing solution can be designed and installed on virtually any wall of your bedroom if you keep it tidy and organized, open concept closets work on large and small bedrooms alike.
