Tips for Designing a Custom Closet for Your Los Angeles Home

If you’re tired of digging through a messy closet in the mornings, it’s time to make some major changes. Having a clean, organized closet makes it easier to get ready in the mornings, plus allows you to see everything you have. This way, you don’t end up rebuying the things you already have, and you can maximize your clothes and accessories. 

Kavin Construction can help you design and build a custom walk-in closet for your master bedroom. Our closet design experts see space in a unique way, ensuring you’re able to make the most of what you have. Below are some of our best tips for designing a custom closet. 

Define Your Space 

The first step is to decide what you want to accomplish by redoing your closet. What types of problems are you currently experiencing? What do you hope to fix by redoing your closet? Are there certain features you must have like recessed lighting, full-size mirrors and shoe storage? 

To help you with this, we recommend writing down a list of the most important elements. Then prioritize them so that you can determine what is most important to you. Perhaps you want an island to fold laundry or a built-in laundry hamper to stay tidy. Don’t forget the basics as well, such as shelving, drawers and rods.

Plan Your Layout

The next step is to plan your layout. You might have a vision of what you want, but it’s important that your space can accommodate it. 

For instance, if you have a small closet, you probably won’t be able to fit a closet island or vanity in it. Instead, you’ll need to work with the space you have and stick to sleek storage solutions like pull-out drawers and adjustable shelving. On the other hand, if you have lots of space to work with, you can use it to your advantage. The sky’s the limit! 

Create Your 3D Blueprint

Once you have an idea in mind, you can start bringing it to life with a 3D blueprint. Blueprints are important because they help you envision how your closet is going to function. Is everything within easy reach? Do you have enough room to put away laundry? Is there enough lighting to see your shoes and accessories? 

Pick Out the Finishing Touches 

When everything is in place, you can move onto everyone’s favorite part of the process: choosing the finishing touches. With a custom closet, you can select every detail, including the color of the drawers, hardware, clothing rods, lighting, etc. 

Some clients like to match their custom closet to the rest of the home, while others use this as their own personal space with bright colors or chandelier lighting. The choice is yours – there is no right or wrong.
