3 Types of Closets to Transform Your Home

Spring is a time for refreshing your home’s interior and your closets are a great place to start. You may have closets of all types in your home. The most common in any home are small reach-in closets, walk-in closets, or the luxurious “boutique” style closet. Windows & Doors By Brownell has partnered with our friends and neighbors at Inspired Closets Vermont to take you on a tour of 3 closet styles that enhance organization and transform the closets in your home.

1.) Reach-In Closets

Reach-in closets are compact in size and where there isn’t much space. They are the most common type of closets built.  Reach-in closets are usually found in entryways, hallways, and bedrooms. They usually have a door which can be sliding, swinging or bi-folding. Not sure what type of interior door you have? Learn about different interior door styles here.

Reach-in closets always seem to be the ones that leave much to be desired because it is hard to think of possibilities for such a small space. An organized closet system will take these spaces from drab to functionally fab. It’s time to rethink the reach-in closets in your home with a personalized built-in design by Inspired Closets. Space maximizing accessories like their built-in and pull-out scarf rack, pants rack, belt-rack, and canvas bag hampers can be cleverly tucked away for beautiful form and function.

2.) Walk In Closets

A walk-in closet is essentially a small (or large) space usually located in a home’s primary bedroom or pantry. When you enter your walk-in closet, how do you feel? If it is anything less than wonderful, relaxed, and inspired, then it may be time to consider making a change. You shouldn’t have to spend time searching through shelves to find what you need; items should be easy to see and find.

Whether you have a vision of what you’d like or need help figuring out the best way to use your space, there are professionals that will create a beautiful and organized design for you. Envision your new space with built-ins, space maximizing accessories (and more!) with technology like the 3D design tool at Inspired Closets.

Like furnishing and décor, your closet doors should complement your home’s unique architectural and individual style. Are you looking for a craftsman style home? Or maybe a modern vibe? Doors can make a big impact on how your home will look and feel. Perhaps you would like to replace your doors, but need help identifying the right style for your home. Check out the TruStile style guide to help you identify different architectural door styles.

3.) Boutique Closets

A boutique closet is one step above your average walk-in closet space. It is one of the most spacious and luxurious closet options available. This type of design commonly includes all the “bells-and-whistles” including the coveted closet island and integrated lighting…swoon. This space should inspire you, the sky is the limit!
