Your guide to making a dream come true, step by step.
Finally, you have a room available to create the closet you’ve dreamed of! But… the project can be daunting if you don’t know how to plan it well. Do you have your checklist ready? The time has come to make your new walk-in closet come true.
Sometimes, its opportunity that prompts a decision! That is, are you moving house or do you have a spare room? Or is it a long-held desire? The truth is that having a magazine walk-in closet at home, with space to meticulously organize your entire closet, is the dream of many. And if there is one room that calls for a custom designed and built project, this is it!
In order for it to be a space where every piece has its place, that makes your daily life easier and allows you to make the best use of every corner to the millimeter, you should take the time to define your requirements. Then, make movies… indulge your whims and your personal style!
Chapter 1: Measuring Space
First of all, measure the space and expectations! The idea is to take advantage and leverage all the storage space. To request a quote and make a design that fits you like a glove, measure the room and take note of all relevant details, such as the existence of pillars, windows, air conditioning units, outlets, ceiling unevenness, and other features that may influence the furniture design and use of space.
Chapter 2: Give Shape to Your Dream
Once this task is done, it’s time for the fun part: defining the style of your new closet, whether it’s full of glamour or more minimalist and practical. When everything is custom designed, the only limit is your imagination!
What makes sense to include, and which design and layout suits you best? We usually say that “every house is a case”, help us understand what yours is!
Chapter 3: A closet all to yourself… or for two?
An important design consideration is whether this is going to be your private haven or whether you will share it with other family members. In a closet for two, for example, you can play with color contrasts to separate areas or, on the contrary, bet on perfect symmetry and use a dressing table to divide areas.
The options of materials, finishes, and colors available in our catalogs are almost endless. Our team’s ideas too! Tell us what you want.
Chapter 4: Everything in its place
Rule of thumb: consider everything you intend to keep. In addition to clothes, will you need space for other items such as suitcases, bedding, and comforters? Would you like to have a space to organize jewelry and accessories? Your closet will be custom designed: think carefully about the place dedicated to each piece and challenge us!
Chapter 5: The Secret of Our Closets
It’s something we usually say jokingly, but the subject is serious: a good closet doesn’t do without clever organizational accessories! It’s our trick for optimizing a space’s potential and storage capacity.
Fearlessly invest in some “magic” elements: rotating modules, dividers, folding rods, retractable shoe racks… you’ll see that it’s worth investing in these kinds of solutions to get the most out of your new closet.
A good organization
creates storage space.
Grand finale: open the doors of imagination!
Once the more practical aspects have been solved, let your creativity run wild. You can make this a very original space in your home that is just right for you.
Go big on color, think about including different finishes, add “dramatic” elements like a dressing table or a palace mirror, create a gallery to display your treasures (bags, shoes, watches, hats)… or even a place to have tea in your closet while choosing the looks for the next season!
