Your home warrants impeccable design and decor, especially those areas you use for entertaining guests. You’ll want to have a perfectly designed kitchen, filled with kitchen cabinets and appliances that are both functional and stylish. Your living spaces need a touch of elegance and sophistication, whereas your dining room should be warm and inviting. Your bedrooms, on the other hand, need to exude maximum comfort and of course, a generous touch of personalization.
One of the most important parts of your bedroom will be your closet space. You need to come up with one that’s not only well-designed but one that will help you make the most of the given square area. There’s only so much that a closet can do (store your clothes and other personal belongings, of course), so you’ll want one that can function well, and not provide you with a nightmare of mismatched socks and missing tops as the year progresses.
To help you make the most of every inch, here are three considerations you need to analyze carefully:
Focus on what you truly need
Whether you’re renovating or building from scratch, deciding on the closet’s size is paramount. You need to know how little or big you want the space to be, but be warned—anything too much will result in regrets! That said, make sure to think about your big blank walls carefully—just because there’s space, doesn’t mean you should sacrifice it for a closet. Those spaces can easily be turned into more functional areas, such as a makeup space, or perhaps a reading nook.
You also need to pay attention to the number of clothes you have, especially when it comes to pieces you need to hang. Your bed should also be taken into consideration, as with other elements you wish to incorporate into your bedroom.
Consider adding storage elsewhere
You’d want your room to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, and that can easily be mixed with functionality. A small space will unlikely be a problem, but a well-thought-out design means using every inch of the bedroom. In other words, it’s paramount to achieving a design that works. As opposed to hanging every single piece of clothing you have, for instance, why not use extra corners of your room for folded clothes and shoes?
A bespoke bedroom dresser, like the Jazz by Presotto, can house your everyday essentials like robes, pyjamas, and underwear garments. Leaving high-touch items like these can quickly make a mess out of your wardrobe, so make sure to invest in not just your closet space, but extensions of it.
Flexibility is key
The mark of any good closet is flexibility. Using hanging rods, for instance, can help you make the most of your spaces, especially if they have been designed with intention. Simply making the holes in the same sizes and lengths in various heights can help you switch up your closet.
You can hang your rods low in the summer, for instance, making way for your blouses and skirts. When the winter comes, you can easily hang your clothes higher, right below a shelf where you can keep off-season items.
Having extra drawers inside your closet can also help, one you can easily store by the floor for a more organized space. The key here is to ensure that organization remains intact—and that can only be so if you can come up with a closet of not only flexibility but purpose!
Making The Most Of Your Closet Area
It’s easy to neglect certain areas of your home, especially since the kitchen, living room, and other spaces warrant your most attention. When it comes down to it, however, the most important part of your home will always be your bedroom, a place where you relax and rest after a long day. In other words, you need to exert as much effort, especially when it comes to organizing your personal belongings, such as clothes.
