Combine Closed and Open Storage
Help organize and add structure to your dream closet with a mix of storage spaces. Open shelves are perfect for items that are used often so that you can see what you need and access it quickly. Closed storage is excellent for more delicate items and less used items. Your furs, formal wear, and other specialty items can be safely stored in closed spaces. Interior Designer Katharine Pooley makes use of combined open and closed storage systems in her designs both for aesthetic and practical reasons.
A mixture of closed and open storage is a must so that some pieces can be displayed and others kept out of site. Always go through your collection first and consider how much you would want to see and what should be kept closed away. Many clients rotate seasonally.
Install Mirrored Doors
Choose mirrored doors for the closed storage spaces in your luxury closet. Not only will mirrors brighten the space, but they will also make it feel larger, too. Multiple mirrors are also a necessity so you can get a 360-degree view of yourself before going out. Getting a great view of yourself helps ensure that you look good coming and going.
Add a Place to Sit
A beautiful sitting area makes your closet look more luxurious, and it serves a purpose. Take a seat while you put on your shoes, try to decide what to wear, or check your phone messages. Select a chair that fits your personality and style. This beautiful sheepskin chair by Old Hickory Tannery is one luxurious option to consider for your dream closet.
Choose Great Lighting
Treat your closet like any room in the house and carefully choose the lighting for your dream closet. A decorative light fixture will add a beautiful design element to the room and elevate the space. A well-lit space will be easier to see in and keep decluttered. Choose as natural a light as possible so that you do not skew the colors in your luxury closet.
Add a Rug to the Dream Closet
A rug adds warmth to any space. Plus, no one wants to walk on cold floors barefoot! Keep your feet cozy with a great rug in your closet. Choose the rug based on both your personality and the design of your dream closet. Laurel and Wolf have several examples of great closet designs, all with rugs. In the closet pictured above, the zebra patterned rug adds to the rustic old world, masculine charm of this space.
