Custom closets are extremely versatile and unique to each homeowner's space and situation by their very nature. Nowhere is this more evident than with the closet pictured here. This reach-in was built as a twin to closet 13 and uses the same dimensions and specifications. The use of full-bore panels makes it simple to switch out one organizational element for another, allowing the system to change as the owners needs change. This closet satisfies different storage requirements by changing out a laundry basket for a deep drawer and replacing some of the shelving with hanging rods. Three times the hanging space makes this closet a better solution for dress slacks, jackets and blazers, but still includes some shelving for sweaters and shoes.
Both of these bedroom closet types have benefits and drawbacks, so choosing the right one mostly depends on your space, goals and personal preferences. Mounted bedroom closets and floor-based systems are both extremely strong and able to store wardrobes with ease. A floor-based system is best for buildings constructed with plaster rather than drywall, and it can often create a more polished look than a hanging-shelves closet. You'll end up with a design similar to custom furniture, especially once the system is finished with base and crown mouldings. That said, a hanging bedroom closet can be a little less complicated, as it won't require you to remove base mouldings or change the floors.
