The Ultimate Guide to Designing Your Dream Custom Closet

Clothes disappearing into the abyss, shoes multiplying mysteriously, and that perfect outfit buried under a pile of forgotten sweaters—sound familiar? If you're nodding (or maybe cringing), don't worry! Closets etc. is here to help you!

Dreaming of a perfectly organized, beautiful, and functional custom closet that meets all your needs and desires? You've come to the right place. Designing your dream custom closet isn't just about extra storage space—it's about creating a sanctuary that brings order to your life, showcases your style, and makes daily routines more enjoyable!

Why Choose a Custom Closet?

Organization at Its Best

Custom closets are all about optimal organization, making it easy to find what you need when you need it. No more digging through piles of clothes or dealing with tangled accessories. Everything has its place.

Imagine having specific spots for your shoes, handbags, and even your workout gear. Now, you can start your day stress-free, knowing exactly where your favorite shirt is—letting your space work for you and enjoying a clutter-free life.

Space Maximization

A well-designed custom closet makes the most of every inch of space. Whether you have a spacious walk-in or a compact reach-in closet, custom solutions ensure that every nook and cranny is efficiently utilized.

You can also add shelves for your shoes, hooks for your favorite accessories, and drawers for smaller items. Even adding a few extra rods for hanging your clothes! The goal is to create a place for everything so you can easily find what you need without the clutter.

Tailored to Your Needs

One of the biggest advantages of custom closets is that they are tailored to YOUR specific needs and preferences. You get to decide everything—from the layout and design to the features and finishes.

Need more hanging space? You got it. Want drawers for your accessories? No problem. It's all about what works best for your lifestyle and taste. Not only that, you also can choose both the materials and colors that match the rest of your home. All by making it just for YOU!

A Project Proposal with Detailed Drawings

Finally, we’ll take all the information gathered during our conversation to create our design recommendations and a project quote.

You’ll also receive a detailed drawing of our design proposal that will reflect your budget and incorporate the aesthetic choices you’ve made for your new or updated storage space.

Toss in pull-out shoe racks, secret compartments for your goodies, and built-in organizers for your belts and ties.

Traditional Closets

If you're into a timeless and classy vibe, traditional closets with classic wood finishes, detailed moldings, and fancy hardware are the way to go. 

They exude warmth and sophistication. Pro tip: Add cedar lining to keep your clothes fresh and a built-in wardrobe for maximum organization! Glass-front cabinets are great for showing off your favorite pieces!

Reach-In Closets

Walk-In Closets

You can also mix up hanging spaces for different clothing lengths, drawers for folded stuff, and a central island for extra storage and display.
