Essentials in Closet Design

Naturally, you’ll want as much space as possible in your master closet. That way, your bedroom doesn’t have to be cluttered with a bulky dresser or armoire. Many people choose to line the walls with drawers and shelves; you can also choose a stand-alone, fixed structure with drawers, cabinets and cubbies as a centerpiece in your closet.

A bench seat can be a beautiful (and necessary) addition. You can choose something sleek and modern or a classic, vintage bench. Either way, you’ll find benches and seating in celebrity closets all over the country (including the closets of Mariah Carey, Kimora Lee Simmons and Christina Aguilera).

You can’t have a complete closet without a mirror – it adds style and the added illusion of more light. Additionally, it saves you the trouble of leaving and coming back as you’re putting together your look for the day. According to Geoffrey Bradfield, you absolutely must have one: “In a very small space, lightness is essential.” Even if your closet is large, it can feel cramped once it’s filled with your wardrobe.
