Bedroom closets come in many forms. Some bedrooms have one closet either small or large while other bedrooms have his and her closets. Some bedrooms don’t even come with built in closet space. Regardless of the type or size of closet you have there are a multitude of bedroom closet design ideas.
Prefabricated closet organizers are popular choices and there are several on the market to choose from. Custom made shelving and storage is another possibility and can be done by a professional contractor or as a do it yourself project.
Smaller closet space has fewer options than a large walk in closet but there are still several available designs. Add a variety of hanging rods at different heights in the closet space for different size clothing. Hang a high rod for long dresses and jackets and a lower rod for tops, plants and skirts.
If there is room, add a small shelving unit for shoes and purses. Utilize the back of the door if possible for hanging up belts and scarves. Closet design does not just include the inside of the closet. Closet doors are also a factor. A nice wooden door with a decorative handle is an option for closets with traditional doorways.
Longer closets with sliding doors have a few more options. Sliding doors with frosted glass or mirrors are ideal for a wide closet. The mirrored ones allow you to check your appearance before leaving for the day and they also create the illusion of a larger room.
Folding doors are also popular choices for wide closet spaces. Go for a simple design or opt for something a bit more creative such as doors designed like shutters.
Large closet spaces offer the ability to be more creative in designing the space. Wall to wall shelving and cubbyhole storage can come in a variety of designs. The options are endless. Measure your space and shop for a prefabricated organizer than both fits your space and your needs.
If you can’t find a prefabricated one that fits your space or needs or even if you have a specific design in mind, custom built is an option. Hire a local contractor to build your closet to order or for the more adventurous try to do it yourself.
If your walk in closet is large enough, add a small sitting area perhaps with a makeup table and mirror. Place a full length mirror on a wall or purchase a freestanding one so you can check your outfit and appearance without leaving your closet space.
Make sure your closet is well lit and opt for a light or bright color on the walls. Depending on the location of your closet you may be able to incorporate a small window. Be sure to include a privacy window dressing.
Unfortunately some bedrooms do not have a closet space. This can prove to be more of a challenge. Purchasing a freestanding wardrobe can help with lack of closet space. If you only require hanging space choose a wardrobe without shelving or drawers.
If you are also lacking drawer space in your bedroom opt for a wardrobe that has hanging space on top and shelves or drawers in the lower section. For a more permanent solution, close in a corner of the room with walls or a room divider and create a small closet space in there.
