No Master Suite Is Complete without the Master Closet

Whether we’re doing a whole-house remodel that includes a master bedroom update or we’re just focusing on the bedroom as a part of a master suite remodel, the one part of the room that always brings the most delight is the master closet. When done well, the master closet can be an oasis within an oasis!

Designing the Master Closet: Function

When you’re trying to decide how your master closet should look, the most important thing to consider is functionality. Do you have 100 pairs of shoes and need a way to see them all? Do you have suits and ties that need to carefully hang to avoid wrinkles? Do you want a dresser built into your closet? Will you get dressed in the closet and need large mirrors and lighting? Should the closet be accessible from your master bathroom directly?

Designing the Master Closet: Aesthetics

Once you understand the way your master closet will function, you can start thinking about the aesthetics. Whether you’re debating between sliding doors or French doors or deciding the color of the wood you would like to choose for shelving, there are many options to consider.

Getting Down to the Details

The magic of the master closet is in the details. Creating a space that has multiple areas for hanging clothes, along with added drawers, baskets, and shelves, can create a space that lets you be more organized. Even the selection of the hardware and accessories – hinges, handles, mirror frames, light fixtures – can help make a difference in the experience.

Master Closet Trends

While we encourage homeowners to ignore trends and make choices based on their own personal needs, some of the most popular trends in master closet design can be truly inspirational:

The Island in the Closet

A center island is no longer just for the kitchen. Offering a ton of additional storage and a space to hold jewelry and even a charging station, the island has journeyed to the closet. Think about using reclaimed wood or, for those romantic evenings at home, including a small wine rack.

Shoe Storage

Rows of shoes on shelves is no longer the only storage solution for footwear. Now you can install a rotating shoe rack that puts your shoes on display without taking up as much room. And those dated shoe shelves are no longer just static storage spaces – they can slide out, rotate, and store multiple pairs.

Finishes

From reclaimed wood to sustainable and recyclable materials, closets can be constructed of a variety of materials. Accessories are equally as prolific – from artisan touches to unique accessories, the closet is more than just a hidden room behind a door.
