Master Bedroom Closets
I occasionally run into people who say the main reason they can’t move from their current homes was that they couldn’t part with their master closets. What makes a closet so desirable in this day and age?
For the answer, we look to Jason Black, a luxury custom home builder with Artisan Signature Homes. “As much as people enjoy their master bath, they really enjoy their master closet,” says Black. “You can’t just put wire shelving in and call it a day anymore,” he adds. These days, homeowners can have luxury custom closets without taking up too much space.
People choose high-end quality builders like Artisan Signature Homes to get a more functional and needs-tailored design. In establishing a custom closet, Jason Black and his crew takes inventory on the type of space needed – be it for shoes, ties, belts, dress clothes, or other components. “If we get real fancy, we’ll get a company like Closet Factory or Closets By Design that specializes in closets,” Black clarifies. Sliding doors, drawers, LED-lighted rods, and staging rods to set up a full outfit for the day are newer trends buyers like.
Black notes the following trends in custom closet designs around the Louisville area:
• Most customers prefer their master closets located off a bathroom or off the hallway to avoid disturbing a sleeping partner in the bedroom.
• Closets are replacing drawers and dresses, so center jewelry / accessory islands and dresser stacks are popular.
• About half of the closets Black designs are large closets, whereas the other half are His-and-Hers closets.
• Hardwood is the most common type of flooring, but some people like the soft feel of carpet.
• Closets are painted with the same colors, design components & trims as the rest of the home for a seamless look.
• Women particularly love chandeliers in the closet to add glitz and glamour, so it’s not the typical closet.
• Benches next to a window or chairs added to the closet are popular options.
• Multi-level closets with spiral staircases to switch out seasonal wardrobes are trending as well.
• Built-in audio systems add entertainment to getting ready in the mornings.
