Walk-in Closets As Personal Havens
A well-equipped walk-in closet is essential to many homeowners these days. These storage areas have evolved into personalized spaces that are much more than a place to keep clothing. Men and women both want these customized closets to be as aweinspiring as the rest of their homes. The master bedroom’s walkin closet or closets make a distinct style statement frequently showcasing one’s wardrobe so that it mimics the layout of a small yet chic boutique.
Closet with Many Uses
Modern walk-ins are often more than “closets” with some transformed into a personal haven for meditation or a place to relax and unwind in away from other family members. Some people incorporate unique features such as washer and dryers with laundry stations, counters with espresso machines, mini-refrigerators with wine bar, charging stations and small desks,make-up dressers, and lounging areas.
Style and Function
In the past, the walk-in was considered more practical and defined as a closet that one could walk into and store their wardrobe. Ideally, these closets are rectangle or square however these spaces can come in all shapes and sizes. Many as large as a secondary bedroom while others are barely big enough to qualify as one. Due to their popularity walk-ins are no longer reserved for the master bedroom and are frequently seen in kids bedroom, secondary bedrooms and guest room. Walk-in closets can be designed with open cabinets (American style), or cabinet sliding or hinged doors can be added everywhere or in certain parts only.
The more clothes, shoes, accessories, and handbags stored, the larger the closet must be. Now an essential amenity for today’s homeowner, custom designed homes feature them as a key selling point, while master bedroom remodeling projects center around adding or expanding a generously sized walk-in closet.
The most popular upgrade to these good spaces is a built-in custom closet system which has been carefully designed to store, display, and work with the flow of how the users like to coordinate their outfits and get dressed. A well-designed custom closet system can increase the usability of the entire walk-in by possibly as much as double what previously was there.
Decorated Like Rooms
Today’s walk-ins have room status and frequently decorated with opulent chandeliers, textured wall treatments, wood flooring, and glamorous chaise lounges. While the closet systems often include large islands, vanities, built-in dressers, and three-way mirrors.
One thing has become clear the walk-in closet has become a unique and one-of-a-kind space.
