Home Trends: Dream closets for the real world

One of the newest television series I am obsessing about is HGTV’s “Million Dollar Rooms,” which gives viewers an all exclusive sneak peak at some of the most luxurious rooms and homes across the nation. A few weeks ago, the series aired a special episode with million dollar closets. Lisa Adams, one of L.A.’s hottest high-end closet designers, takes on the challenge of transforming four celebrity closets.

I was blown away by Adams’ ability to take a cluttered closet lacking in any strategized organization and convert it into an attractive, welcoming space that presents an abundance of purpose and user-friendly qualities. The finishing touches that were incorporated in these deluxe closets were, needless to say, extravagant. Drawers upon drawers with individual cubbies lined in velvet provided delicate storage room for jewelry, belts and scarves. Angled floor to ceiling shelving units provided a striking display for shoes and folded garments. Plenty of hanging space gave home to other clothing items, which were then categorized and arranged according to seasonal wear, color and even style. Everything in the closet had its place, and not one thing went unseen.

These costly closets are actually a trend that is much closer to home than you may realize. Summit County possesses its fair share of pricey closets. Weeks back, I discussed the value per square-foot in Summit County. Keeping that in mind, an 8-foot by 6-foot closet in Summit County has a value of about $14,000 (with each square-foot having a value of close to $300). Once you insert all of the bells and whistles that provide the capacity to store your several thousand dollars worth of clothing, you’re looking at a high-valued closet.

You may be assessing those figures and thinking to yourself that it seems silly to put so much money into a space that you don’t spend that much time in and no one ever really sees. Consider this though: There are only a few rooms in your home that you will without a doubt use day after day. Your kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom probably come to mind instantly. However, I’m confident that you forgot your closet.

We can’t avoid getting dressed every day. But how are you supposed to achieve that high-design closet without digging for spare change in the sofa? (Insert sigh of relief here.) All of these attractive closet design options being used in these high-end closets don’t need to come with a million dollar price tag. You can affordably achieve your dream closet that allows you to truly take pleasure in getting ready every day.

You put an emphasis on design and visual appeal in many areas of your home, so why not put that same level of consideration into your closet? You deserve to live like a celebrity. If you long for a closet that looks like it’s worth a million bucks, you can utilize today’s newest closet design concepts to assist you in creating your dream closet in our realistic world.
