Years ago, closets functioned as a tiny place to hang clothes with a small shelf above for accessories. Today, homeowners want big, stately closets, preferably walk-in style. If your home affords you the luxury of having a large walk-in closet or you have tiny ones throughout the house, the goal is to maximize the space so that you can store your belongings in a more organized way. Closet companies in Bucks County understand closet dilemmas and sometimes, hiring one of these companies to work their magic is worth the time and cost.
Before you hire a professional, you need to figure out what is necessary for your own space. This will help the designer maximize your space according to your needs and specifications. That is just smart closet design.
Closets work best if they can actually work for you. If you know that you hang most of your items then you will obviously need more hanging space. You need to think about how you dress as well. What do you grab for the most? This will help you decide what needs to be at eye-level and what less-used items can be stored above or below eye-level. You don’t want too much hanging storage and too little shelf or drawer storage if your goal is to keep things folded and neatly tucked away.
Being able to actually see your ties, scarves, handbags or shoes allows you to see all your choices when you are getting dressed. Even in small closets, every item has a place and a professional can help you design such a space.
Take advantage of all available space your closet can offer. All the way up to the ceiling and down to the floor. Rollout boxes that sit on the floor or a high shelf for items that you don’t use often are all objects to consider. The key is to maximize the entire space.
It’s important to have a closet designed to fit your needs, not what you think you may need, what looks good or what others think. If you are investing the time and money on something that ultimately is just for you, go with what your wants and needs are. A good professional will help you see that vision, not tell you what that vision should be.
