Closet Confidential: Total Design Source’s Guide to Custom Closet Design

Custom closets are an asset to any Tampa home. With the ability to stow away your items in style, a closet can streamline your day-to-day and make the most of your space. 

With that said, a custom closet is only as good as its design. Read on for our complete guide to custom closet design for your Tampa Bay home!

Maximize Your Home’s Square Footage (and Overall Value)

A custom closet is an excellent solution to limited storage space. Even for those with plenty of square footage, a well-designed closet makes it easier to organize your Florida home. 

Here are our top tips for maximizing your Tampa closet space with a custom design:

  • Take advantage of vertical space for items you don’t use every day, like suitcases and seasonal items. 
  • Design a closet that matches your needs. For example, you may benefit from double-hanging rods to store shorter garments, like skirts and tops. You don’t need to conform to the features of a typical closet. 
  • Don’t forget about the back of the closet door, which can include hooks or pegs for longer hanging items. 
  • Utilize drawers for smaller items, like shoes, sunglasses, and accessories. 

Custom closets not only maximize square footage; they also increase property value. Investing in custom closet design can enhance the overall value of your home. Potential buyers are often drawn to properties with well-designed, organized closets, making it a worthwhile investment in your future. 

Form and Function: The Best of Both Worlds with Custom Design

A custom closet should be as functional as it is beautiful. Consider features that streamline your routine, like built-in shelf or drawer lighting to illuminate your items, making it simple to find the perfect outfit. Closet seating can enhance the area’s functionality by providing a space to put on shoes or relax. 

Designing a Closet that Exudes Style

Your personal style should play a role in your custom closet design. From modern to minimalist, luxury to contemporary, your style can shine through the shelves. 

Design elements to consider include:

  • Elegant wood finishes
  • Glass display doors
  • Stylish cabinetry hardware
  • Built-in lighting 
  • Accent colors
  • Thoughtfully placed mirrors
