How To Design Your Dream Closet

Just like dogs are a man’s best friend, I think closets might be a fashionista’s best friend. If this describes you, then your closet design is important! However, whether you love a good closet or not, I think we can all agree that a closet needs to meet our needs. To help you achieve that dream closet, I’m going to share four things to consider when designing your dream closet.

1. Consider adding an island if your space is large enough. An island works great for three reasons in particular: extra storage with drawers, incorporating a bench can be easily done, and you get a surface on which you can style, set your drinks, and lay out your outfit options.

2. Consider who will be using the space. This closet pictured above is perfect for a male or female (or both!) as it borders the line between elegant and masculine. However, if the colors or materials were different it could easily lean more one way than the other.

3. Consider adding a nook for yourself or possibly a vanity to get right in front of. Make this space your own. Closets can be fun and if you want this to be a “getaway space,” a personal nook is a perfect way to achieve that.

4. Don’t skimp on lighting! You want to see your clothes how they really are and that’s incredibly difficult without the right light. Also, consider adding a chandelier for an upgrade in sophistication and fun.
