Interior Design Ideas to Complement a New Closet

A new closet is a chance to change a lot in your life.  From expanding your wardrobe to giving a room that had no use of the label of 'bedroom,' it's an awesome way to change things up. 

If you're adding a new closet and are ready to make other changes while you're at it: these are the top design ideas that will go with it!

Spacious Built-In Storage

Storage is the keyword for so many people in 2022. We want to have spaces for all of our items and don't want to leave our closets and rooms full of bins that are nothing but an eyesore.  Consider getting built-in storage or a modular closet, that will encourage you to put things on display instead of just leaving them stacked up in piles. This type of storage is the best way to ensure a closet isn't just a space where you can hide your clutter and instead is a chance to give your room a fresh start.

Gorgeous Floors Throughout the Home

Luxury vinyl floor

Floors are something that matters in every property, we’re almost always in contact with them, and they can change how we feel about a room or home. Because of this, it’s a good idea to go for luxury vinyl product that looks like hardwood flooring. This type of flooring can handle water, has a consistent color that you can pick out of a huge selection, and offers the chance to avoid the denting and staining that comes with the usual hardwood floors. 

When paired with the right closet, it can make this space feel like a natural extension of the room instead of an afterthought.

Matching Stain On All Wood

Wood is something that's always in style for home design. Because of humanity's long history with this material, it's natural to want wood throughout your home. It’s important to balance the wood tones and grains.  This is when you should consider working with a professional interior designer to help you will pulling everything together.

 Take the time to either restrain or pick items that all have a stain that matches. The best stain for interior wood suits everything else in the property.

Cozy Touches of Luxury

Luxury matters to most owners because we pour so much money into these properties; we want them to feel worth that expense. Adding touches like heated floors, or a smart thermostat, may feel small and insignificant, but they add up and make being at home so much more enjoyable.

 You can make small changes, like luxurious fixtures, replacing the handles on doors and cabinets, updating towels, and slowly shifting the things you own into higher quality items that are built to last and amaze. Although it can seem expensive when you step back and look at the big picture, piecing it out like this can ensure you have a closet full of clothing and items you love instead of fabric that you only wear because it's there.

Clean Freshly Painted Walls

Besides scrubbing down every wall with a magic eraser, the best way to leave a space feeling truly fresh is to paint it. If you're feeling creative, you can even take this further and paint the interior of your closet a different color or a fun pattern so that it's a neat surprise when someone opens it to take something out.

Make sure that you take the time needed to piece out every part of the project if you're painting. Paint property, take your time so that the bright paint doesn't splatter wood doors with white trim and that the colors in your home speak to you. Although you'll have to do at least two coats regardless of the paint you use, take it slow and don't apply too much pressure, and you'll get a more even coverage out of the paint.

Vertical Storage to Kill Clutter

Clutter is annoying no matter who you are: so you must take the time to get rid of it. You can do this by following the Marie Kondo method and deciding which items matter most to you, but make sure you follow her next steps- selling, donating, or recycling as much as possible so that it's not wasted.

Getting rid of clutter will ensure that your closet has more space for clothes and fun and that you don't feel like that area is immediately cluttered even though you just built it. Take your time, and create an area that only has things that matter to you, and bring something positive into your life.

A New Closet is the Chance for a Home Makeover

Whether you're building this closet to add storage or to make a bonus room into an official bedroom, you can do a lot with this addition. Keep your eye on good storage, pay attention to the layout and flow of a room, and you can design a space that feels entirely new.
