A Moment's Peace: A Walk-In Private Retreat

This client had a vision of grandeur — she wanted an extravagant, even majestic, place to call her own. A small, closed off room attached to the bedroom offered the perfect space to build a walk in closet/dressing room that would become her very own private sanctuary. The best way to bring this vision to life was to create a closet that would be her personal escape. Lights and glass would illuminate and display all of her favorite things as in a fashion designer’s boutique. The doors on each of the organization systems gave the closet the look of a small room covered in wall-to-wall built ins rather than a cluttered storage space.

Glass cabinets and LED lights may have been the obvious opulent features of this closet, but the functional details also made this perfect as her dazzling retreat. She had a large collection of clutch purses and small boxes that were ready to be organized with cubbies installed above long-hang sections holding her all of her eveningwear and dresses. Separate cabinets were built for her folded clothing and more casual shoes with solid fronts as opposed to the glass door treatments, showcasing her handbags, high heels, and gowns.

The back wall had a challenging angle that interfered with the client’s request to have all upper cabinets be the same height throughout the entire closet. As a solution, we created a custom template for those specific panels. The upper cabinets on the back wall with the angle ended up being mostly for aesthetics. The angled wall is contained within the cabinet limiting functional storage, aside from housing the lighting transformers. The spaces in between each of the intersecting wall-to-wall units left room for overhead storage, in which she stored hat boxes, luggage, and storage bins.
