How to Create a Sophisticated, Walk-In Custom Closet – at an Affordable Price!

Do you dream of vacations to luxurious locales and wish you could replicate the experience in your own home?  It can be easy to add a touch of luxury to your everyday life with a custom closet.

At Modular Closets, our philosophy is that everyone ought to be able to live a life that feels luxurious and sophisticated, even if you’re on a budget. That’s why we specialize in offering gorgeous, high-quality plywood closet systems that we are able to make affordable through our modular approach to design and easy DIY installation.

If you’re on a budget but want to create a walk-in custom closet to rival the rich and famous, try this 3-step process for luxury every day:

1. Add Open Shelves and Create a Curated Display

One easy way to bring an immediate sense of luxury to your space is to install open shelves and select a few precious and visually appealing items to put on display.

Do you have a favorite handbag or a collectible item that reminds you of an exciting destination?  We recommend choosing one item to put as the focal piece of your new open shelving. Then you can use its color, texture, and overall feel to determine what else will go into your curated display.

This is your opportunity to surround yourself with your own personalized view of luxury every day from the moment you open your closet door.

2. Hang Long Mirrors on the Inside Door and/or Walls

Who doesn’t want a walk-in closet that feels open and spacious?

Given the structure of your home, it may not be possible to create a bigger closet, but you can make your closet feel larger than it is by using mirrors.

We recommend hanging some long mirrors on the inside of your closet.  The inside doors are often an ideal spot, or maybe you have some shelves you want to put behind a set of double doors that can be covered with long mirrors.

You might even want to add some smaller mirrors inside the space.  The added reflection can make even a tiny walk-in closet feel roomy.

3. Add a Plush Ottoman and a Luxury Throw Rug

For a final touch of luxury flair, you can add to the sense of elegance and ease by introducing a small ottoman and a beautiful rug to your closet floor.

Especially once you add mirrors to your closet, you may want to be able to sit while you get ready, or at least have a comfortable way to put on your shoes.  In this way, a plush little ottoman can be both a decorative element and a functional addition to your new closet, one that suggests you can enter, put your feet up and relax.

A soft rug under your feet also adds a sense of warmth and character to your space. A fine oriental style rug can complete the look of luxury you crave.

If you’re ready to take your walk-in closet from dull to charmingly delightful, our team here at Modular Closets will be happy to assist you. We’re known for our closets systems that make everyday elegance surprisingly easy and affordable.
