How to Take 10 Walls and Make a Closet that is a Perfect 10!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Most Walk in Closets are shaped like a square or rectangle – but not this one! Not only does this closet have ten walls – but also it needed to serve almost as many functions.  The clients wanted everything behind doors.  And they wanted the space to serve as a dressing area and a laundry/pressing area.  All designed to be in harmony with the rest of their décor. In order to make this happen – we had to involve engineering aspects hand-in-hand with design aspects.  Everything needed to flow just as much as it needed to function. 

As a result, we used several blind corner units.  We also provided cedar backing, which was attached to the walls.  Then we installed the structure of the closet without the doors and drawer fronts.  And we did this so we could be certain that everything fit perfectly.  We also scribed this closet to the ceiling and installed base molding for a true built-in look.


You see, we utilized some very high-end materials including walnut with burl inlays, patterned glass and mirrored doors.  A mistake of even an eighth of an inch would mean the door/drawer didn't fit properly – and then didn't function properly. And no one wanted that – so patience was an important aspect to this project. We located the pants presser and the laundry in a niche near the back of the space.  There’s also a three way mirror (with storage behind it) that serves double duty in its’ function and in making the space appear larger.

A chandelier further enhances these gorgeous materials, shedding light on one of the most beautiful custom storage solutions that we have created so far.  And our industry colleagues concur, because this project won a Top Shelf Design Award.
