That’s why we’ve rounded up this comprehensive list of our favorite custom closet features!
Whether it’s a beautiful island in the middle of your walk-in you can use to store extra items, or lighting that helps with both the beauty and function of your custom closet, there’s a lot to consider. We’re here to help make sure you’ve thought of everything when it comes to designing your brand new closet.
Custom Closet Features
Your custom closet is sure to become the epitome of luxury if you choose to go with these incredible features.
- Drawers for smaller items
If you ask us, any luxurious custom closet will have a dedicated space for items like watches, jewelry, wallets, sunglasses, and other smaller items you need to store. There’s nothing quite as mesmerizing as opening a drawer to reveal all of your beautifully organized items. It will help you to stay organized while also adding that special touch of luxury.
Chances are good that you have some sort of valuable item you need to store. Whether it is the jewelry we discussed above or even important documents, having a safe in your closet can be a huge help. You’ll keep your most important items secure and tucked away with peace of mind only you can access them.
We love this addition to any type of custom closet.
- Closet island
Nothing screams luxury quite like a beautiful closet island. Just like a kitchen island, your closet island will stand in the middle of your walk-in closet space. It can be used as a place to lay out your items while looking at them or choosing outfits. It can also be used for extra storage or for folding your clothing before you go to put it away.
- Hat and bag shelving
You want to keep your hats and bags in great condition. One of the best ways to do that is with dedicated shelving just for these items. Even better if you put them behind a glass door that will help keep the dust away.
The great thing about designing a custom closet is you can choose the shelf sizes based on the items you’re looking to store.
- Luxurious lighting
Lighting can make a huge difference in just about any room in your house. That means both natural lighting and added lighting are definitely something to consider when it comes to elevating your custom closet.
Depending on what the natural lighting looks like, you might incorporate additional lighting to really add some flare. Integrated LED lighting is a fantastic way to help highlight your belongings and will help the space feel extra luxurious. You could also add a chandelier to really take things up a notch in the elegance department or even include dressing table lighting.
- Full length mirror
No matter who you are, it pays off to have a full length mirror as a part of your custom closet! A full length mirror will allow you to see your outfit from head to toe. It will also help open up the space which is especially great if your closet is on the smaller side.
Bonus points if you can add lighting to your mirror. Lighting and mirrors together will help create the illusion of a bigger space and help your custom closets feel more luxurious than ever before.
- Shoe system
Shoes can be one of the more difficult things to store in a closet. Dedicated shoe shelving helps solve this problem as it keeps your shoes in order. There’s a spot for each and every pair without having to stack them on top of one another or dig through a bin to find a matching pair.
You can design your shoe system to have similar types of shoes next to each other. You could also organize your shoes by most worn or seasonally.
- Built-in laundry hamper
When it comes to custom closets convenience is everything! Incorporating a laundry hamper into the design of your closet is a perfect way to avoid an ugly standalone hamper and maintain a cohesive look. You’re also a lot more likely to put your dirty clothes in the hamper when it’s conveniently located.
A series of different types of hampers could also be included like separate hampers based on clothing color or his and hers hampers.
- Ironing board
Speaking of built-in convenience, another great custom closet feature to consider is an ironing board. It’s the simple truth that sometimes you go to pull out a clothing item only to see that it’s incredibly wrinkled.
Rather than having to take it and run to the laundry room, having one built-in to your custom closet makes everything a whole lot quicker. Even a smaller ironing board is great for quick and easy touch ups without having to go very far.
- Valet rods
Valet rods are rods that are added to your closet as a place to hang things quickly. They’re particularly great for packing or unpacking or even hanging up an outfit to see what it looks like.
You’ll love having a place to hang something quickly. The valet rods can also be used to collect a bunch of clothing items you need to iron.
One of our favorite additions to any custom closet is a place to sit. This might be an ottoman, a smaller couch, or a chair.
Seating helps take up the luxurious factor in a big way and also happens to be super convenient as a place to put your items temporarily. You can also choose the style of your seating so that it matches the look and feel of your closet and room.
- Designated dressing area
A place that’s specifically dedicated to getting dressed is a handy feature to have in your custom closet. This is where you might include your seating and your full length mirror so you can get the full effect of your outfit.
Having this space also means you’ll be able to stay organized better and see what your outfit looks like without having to go too far from your closet.
- Beautiful hardware
One of the best things about building a custom closet is all of the design choices you get to make. That includes hardware.
Hardware can make a huge difference when it comes to how luxurious your closet will feel and can help take things up a notch if you’re going for an elevated look.
- Beverage station
Now if we’re really getting fancy then a beverage station is another great add-on. You can include counter space for all of your cups and drinks or even a small fridge to keep your beverages, milk, and cream. There’s nothing quite as amazing as having a little something to sip on while you put together outfits or pack for an upcoming trip!
Types of Custom Closets
Now that you know more about all the best custom closet features, you might be wondering what types of custom closets are possible. Here are the different types of closets you can design to be custom!
Walk-in closets are exactly what they sound like! You’ll be able to walk right into your closet like you would any room in your home. The great thing about walk-in closets is they usually have tons of space which also means plenty of opportunities when it comes to designing them custom.
It’s also super easy to keep a walk-in closet clean and tidy.
In contrast to the walk-in closet is the reach-in closet. Rather than walking into your closet, you’ll be able to reach into it. This type of closet usually includes hanging rods and shelving, but can also be customized.
Customization is particularly great for reach-in closets as it allows you to use up as much of the space as possible. You can optimize your storage needs depending on what it is you need to store and ensure no corner goes wasted.
It’s also possible to include many of the great features we listed above in your custom reach-in closet.
