How to Turn a Room into a Closet
In many older Minnesota homes, ample closet storage space can be a scarce commodity. There are ways to best optimize your existing closet space, such as adding more shelving and hanging rods or even downsizing your belongings, but sometimes these solutions don’t cut it. If you’re in need of more space for your clothes, accessories, and happen to have a spare room in your home, one option is to turn your spare room into a walk-in closet.
Benefits of Choosing to Convert a Bedroom into a Closet
If you have the space to turn a room into a walk-in closet, you’ll be able to enjoy storing and organizing your clothing, shoes, accessories, and more — all in one place that’s both beautiful and functional. Traditional walk-in closets add this ability to an extent (depending on its size), but making a spare room your closet comes with so many more possibilities for customizing and optimizing the space.
Turning a room into a walk-in closet doesn’t have to be just for storage. You have the ability to look at your newly constructed closet as your “personal oasis.” Add a vanity with drawers, and use the space to store and put on cosmetics. Add some plush chairs or a chaise lounge for a cozy reading spot, or maybe a pedestal surrounded by full-length mirrors for a luxurious dressing room area.
Design Elements to Consider When You Convert a Bedroom to a Closet
When you turn a spare room into a closet, the world (or closet) is your oyster as far as organization and design elements are concerned. You have endless storage options such as shelving, drawers, doors, racks for accessories, and rods for clothing, and are able to customize which elements you need and where they are located in the closet.
You also have customizable design elements to consider like lighting features, hardware, and flooring. Some people opt to turn their spare room into a closet in a way that reflects the rest of their home’s aesthetic, while others want to glam it up a bit more. LED lights can be added in crowns, rods, and shelves, in addition to overhead puck lighting. Hardware on each drawer or door can be customized to reflect your personal style.
When you turn a room into a walk-in closet, you not only get to maximize your storage space, but you get to customize it to your exact needs.
