Let there be light! Set the look and feel of your closet with accent lighting. This is essential when it comes time to picking out clothes, applying makeup, drawing attention to a few of your favorite accessories, and improving the overall atmosphere. Whether you have a large or small space, this will add special aesthetic to your individual space. 

Interested in lighting up your space? Incorporate a few of these options to ensure you set the perfect mood for your custom closet: 

  • Chandeliers 
  • Vanity lights
  • Pendant and track lights

3. Shoe Storage

Let's be real - shoes are not meant to be jammed into a confined closet, shoved under your bed or mixed in a shoe bin. Your shoe collection deserves its own space. Built-in shoe shelving allows you to quickly choose your pair of shoes for the day and easily place them back at the end, eliminating the risk of scattered shoes making their way back across your floor. Sneaker, flats, heels, dress shoes - they will now have a special place in your closet. 

4. Adding an Island

  • Spacious drawers 
  • Extra shelving 
  • Unique countertop color
  • Enhanced cabinet facing
