3 Trends in Modern Closet Design

One of the best things about a custom closet is that you have a chance to express yourself and your sense of style. Of course, once your beautiful closet is installed, it still has to work. Finding a middle ground between form and function is never easy, but the design experts at More Space Place Hilton Head are here with this little reminder: you don’t always have to compromise between aesthetics and functionality.

Having a few key design principles in your head as you start making decisions about your closet will give it a cohesive look. And if you’re worried about ending up with a boring, old-fashioned closet, the best thing you can do is to incorporate some of these simple, trending design elements.

Open Storage

This is one of the easiest and most cost effective items on our list. Open storage can take the form of shelves, exposed drawers, or hanging shoe racks – but whatever it is, the result is the same: an organizational method that turns all of your beautiful clothes and accessories into decorative elements. Of course, open storage takes a little more time and attention; if you’re the kind of person who likes to toss clothes into a pile, or if you hate folding laundry, this might not be the right option for you.

Closet Islands

These handy organizational structures double as attractive architectural elements in your closet by breaking up the space, providing staggered visual lines, and offering a chance to incorporate color or texture accents. Use a pop of color or a pane of glass on the topmost surface to break up the main design elements, or use it to feature tchotchkes, a vase of flowers, or frequently used accessories. Have fun with it!

Clean and Simple

“Light and bright” could easily be the motto of modern closet design. Look at any fashion and design blog, and you’ll notice that the dark, moody colors that once dominated closets (think rich hardwoods with lots of metal and leather accents) have been overtaken by lots of mirrors and bright color schemes. The days of the cavernous closet have ended, and it’s no wonder: choosing white as a primary color offers a greater variety of accent colors. Along with some strategic mirror placement, bright colors give the entire space a sense of openness and simplicity.
