11 Dream Closets for Trendsetting Men
- Jun 24, 2016
For most people, bedroom closets are those places where you struggle to fit as many clothes in and hope that your guests will never open them to see the horror behind the door. However, for fashionable men, especially for the millennials who are looking to make an image for themselves in the business world, the place where they store their clothing, shoes and accessories is their sanctuary.
More and more millennials are looking to buy properties with an extra room that they can convert into walk-in closets. With condos and houses shrinking in size every year it has become nearly impossible for millennials wanting to move in the downtown core to find enough space to store their entire wardrobe.
If you’re one of those trendsetting men and are looking to buy a property with an extra room that you can convert into a walk-in closet here’s some ideas:
The Clean and Simple Closet
There’s nothing extravagant about it, just clean and functional. Most men will agree that clean and simple is the way to go. It is compartmented well enough to fit your pants, dress shirts, shoes, ties, belts, accessories, and whatever else you need to store in it. This closet is perfect if you live in a condo and have an extra room.
The Perfect Closet for a Den
If you have a den instead of an entire room and want to make good use of the space here’s an idea for it. Use a solid wood closet that matches the furniture colour of the rest of your home. You may also add a splash of color using a carpet and a modern chair to make the closet functional and cozy.
The Functional Closet
When dealing with closed spaces and multiple doors within the space it’s difficult to come up with a beautiful concept for the walk-in closet. In these situations it’s best to keep it simple and make the space as practical as possible. Ensure the closets are narrower so that they don’t interfere with the door handles and that they fit perfectly in all open spaces. Lastly, ensure that the color of the closet matches the color of the room.
The Closet/Bathroom Hybrid
Getting ready in the morning has just become that much more convenient with a sink in your closet. You can style your hair and groom yourself while trying to pick your outfit for the day.
The Sleek and Sophisticated Closet
When I think Harvey Specter I think this closet. For those who watched the TV Show “Suits” will understand. Harvey is always dressed in the finest suits and exemplifies the dream life of every hardworking bachelor that’s aiming to always look sleek and sophisticated.
The Open Concept Closet
This type of a closet is perfect for apartments that don’t have any additional rooms you can use as a walk-in closet. This open concept closet that stretches across one of the walls of your apartment allows you to maximize storage and efficiency. If you’re uncomfortable with other people seeing your clothes you can choose to close up that space with sliding doors. It’s not necessarily about the space you have, it’s more about the way you prioritize the available space.
The Perfect Closet for Small Spaces
If you live in a small downtown condo you likely don’t have much room to build a walk-in closet and that’s okay. You still have plenty of options and this is just one example of a small but functional closet that gives you enough room to store all your clothes and accessories.
The Secret Closet
This is a side by side image of what’s behind those mirrors. Having your walk-in closet hidden behind those glass door mirrors is the perfect way to visually enlarge a space, bring in more light and offer a break from the design monotony. With a bit of customization you could have a “James Bond” type of a closet.
The Closet/Bathroom Combo
What’s better than coming out of a warm shower, sliding the glass doors open and landing into your stylish walk in closet? Put in a simple but elegant carpet, a cozy sofa and some pot lights and get ready to become the person you want to become.
The Chameleon Closet
Do you want to hide your closet from unwanted visitors? Then it’s time to put in some glossy sliding doors that match the wall paint; glossy surfaces convey a minimalism best suited for people who appreciate simplicity. There’s a soothing honesty in glossy surfaces, constantly reminding one of their own selves through the mirroring effect. The only question remains: is this your style?
Mix & Match Spaces
Perhaps the most popular and practical walk-in closet is the one that is also functional and combines well with a study/recreational room. Given the small square footage of most new condos and townhomes we need to make use of every space we have and if you’re one of the trendsetters then a large closet is a must and this is perhaps the only practical way to have the best of both worlds.
