We were referred by our client’s interior designer to design a large walk-in closet after a major home remodel.
Situation: Our client had a large walk-in closet that simply wasn’t working. A substantial center island with upper storage cabinets didn’t actually store inventory well, despite its large size. What’s more, it blocked the natural light from three windows, making it hard to see throughout the entire space.
Solution: We completely reworked the layout and storage elements. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets all around the room and a custom handbag cabinet maxed out the space. We extended the island and raised its height, swapped the upper cabinets for a beautiful, functional wooden countertop, and added handbag storage along an unused wall. The entire room was flooded with light and our clients gained much needed additional storage. Paint colors, finishes and hardware were called out by the interior designer to ensure the space fit seamlessly with the aesthetic of the rest of their home.
Design details: floor-to-ceiling custom painted wood cabinets with center island, semi-custom black velvet jewelry trays, custom cabinet to showcase and store her designer handbag collection, floor-to-ceiling vertical pull-out cabinet lined with suede to store belts and jewelry, full-length mirror, floor-to-ceiling shoe storage with adjustable shelves, oil rubbed bronze hardware.
