12 Things to Consider BEFORE you Design your Master Closet

Wednesday, July 24, 2013
If you’re lucky enough to have a walk-in master closet – whether it’s shared space or there are “his” and “her” versions – it pays off to plan your storage design.

So here are the top ten things to consider when planning this space (whether you’re doing it yourself or meeting with –oh – say – one of our fabulous design consultants).

Here’s the inside scoop on how to master “The Master”.

1) If it’s shared space, decide on the division. How much space will each person get? The typical division is 2/3 Hers; 1/3 His.

2) Do you need drawers and if so, approximately how many? And do you like deep drawers, shallow drawers, or a combination?

3) Shoe Storage. How many pair need shelf space? Honestly.

4) Make the Long Hang decision. How much of it do you need and where will it go? If space is tight, you don’t wear the Long Hang items frequently and you have other closets, consider moving the Long Hang out of the master closet.

5) Do you hang pants long or fold them over a hanger? This will help determine what other hanging space will be needed (short, medium or long).

6) Where does dirty laundry end up? And what about clothes that need to go to the drycleaner? Would you like pullout baskets/drawers for that?

7) Are you a “folder” or a “hanger”? People who fold most things need more shelves. People who hang need hanging space.

8) Do you like all of your clothing and shoes to be visible or behind doors/drawers?

9) Do you need a full-length mirror?

10) Do you travel and need a surface (island or peninsula) for packing?

11) Where will you sit to put on your shoes?

12) Would you like some hooks for hanging the clothes you “hang around the house in”. They’re so much better than the floor.

These are the things we “masters” consider when we have the privilege of working with people on this most important and intimate space. If your husband is the “master” in assisting you with this project, then he’s one lucky fella. And if that doesn’t work out – we’re here for you! Just schedule your complimentary in home consultation and we’ll make the process painless and the result beautiful.
