Achieving the Closet of Your Dreams

Closet Type #1: The Bedroom Wall Closet

The most common closet in NYC is the bedroom wall closet. This is the type of closet that when you open the doors you have access to the entire closet. Good wall closets include space for long and short items, several open shelves, a spot for your shoes and a place to hang belts, ties, scarfs or handbags. A good wall closet should be at least 24 inches this the rod to lay in the middle of the closet giving clothing on hangers a couple of inches of space.

Closet Type #2: The Walk In Closet 

However, walk in closets have been the favorable closet of choice for most home buyers. A common walk in closet should be about 7 feet in width allowing you to have a 3 foot path down the middle with clothes hanging on both sides.

Configure Custom Closets

High-end custom closets can be exquisitely detailed and though custom systems can be expensive, they can help free up space in your bedroom by eliminating the necessity of a large dresser.  Custom doesn’t always have to mean luxury and expensive. 

Everybody loves choices, when it comes to designing and planning your closet.  The power to make it your own is always a bonus. Customizing accommodates all shapes and sizes transforming and maximizing storage by making the most of every inch of your space. Custom designed closets will need a professional to measure and design your system.

Do It Yourself Closets

Many businesses specialize in designing closets, however, if this option is too expensive, do-it-yourselfers can tackle a small closet in a single weekend.

Installation  

The actual installation should take a day or two. However, if you are doing yourself, you will need to consider how you want your closet arranged and what will be stored in your space. 

Your second step should be take good measurements in order to purchase and install correctly in your space. Your third step should be determining what your budget and requirements are.  And at this point you should decide if this is a good candidate for DIY or if you will require professional help.

If you determine you can and will do it yourself you can find closet systems in hardware and home improvement stores. When you go shopping for your closet system you will find that you have a few options in terms of finishes and types of closet systems.

The most inexpensive are the vinyl coated wire systems, but please note this option is not as sturdy as other options. Another inexpensive option is panel systems made of melamine but this may not suit your needs. The more expensive options are wood veneers or wood simulated.
