A Dream Closet can mean different things to different people. It can be space for your entire shoe selection, it can be places for your jewelry, it can be enough clothes hanging for your entire wardrobe, it can a range of accessories that make your closet as beautiful as it is functional. In this case, we present a space that does all of the above! In general terms, when we talk about a “Dream Closet”, we are describing a custom closet solution that goes beyond mere functionality, and also incorporates many decorative upgrades. A solution like this will typically cover the majority of the available wall space, and utilize a series of built-in cabinets to complete your closet. A typical Dream Closet will often include:
Other details that may into play in a Dream Closet arrangement can include lights, glass, accessories for ties, belts and laundry. The closet featured here is an example of a factory-painted project. With factory painting, you pick a colour from the paint deck, any colour you like. While most often of course people will select a white or an off-white, as in this scenario, you could in theory pick a bright red or a purple, anything you like!
This Dream walk in Closet features cabinets on all walls, providing ample clothes handing for both long clothes as well as double hung short clothes hanging. Drawer fronts feature a modified Shaker-style front with crystal knobs for added elegance. Adjustable shelves have an ogee edge detail and are located in groupings of holes to minimize visual distraction yet still provide flexibility, and all vertical panels are finished with decorative flutes that match the drawer fronts. With a crown up top and a decorative base, this closet is detailed from top to bottom. Shoes are stored on angled shelves using brushed chrome fences to hold shoes in place. In the picture to the left you can see we also left access to the drop down hatch that leads to the attic – you never know when you’ll need to get in there!
Other features of this closet include tie and belts racks, and fabric liners for drawers which are themselves installed using automatic soft-closing hardware.To the left you will see another feature: a hidden fold-away ironing board. The upper “drawer face” in this case drops down on hinges and reveals a collapsible ironing board. The board is hinged and folded for storage behind the false drawer front – you pull it forward, unfold it and employ the support on its underside to stiffen it, and rotate it to the position that is most convenient to you. This item also employs soft-closing hardware on the mechanism, and means you can do away with your free standing ironing board and finding a way to store it.
