Are Walk-In Closets Worth It?

Building a waterfront custom home in Maryland allows you to create a space that suits your lifestyle to a tee. At Shore-Line Construction, we are dedicated to creating a detailed house design that gives you a place to call home, a place to enjoy your daily life as you want. A very practical aspect of daily living is clothing, which brings us to closet space. In your custom home design, are walk-in closets worth it?

What Is a Walk-In Closet?

A walk-in closet is an enclosed room dedicated to housing clothing and sometimes other amenities such as a vanity and an ironing station. A walk-in closet usually sits off of a master bedroom. It can connect only to the bedroom, or it could be a room in between the master bedroom and the master bathroom. Sometimes, it will connect only to the master bathroom. Although it is a closet, its size is flexible. It could be as large or as compact as one wishes.

Perks of a Walk-In Closet

A walk-in closet is not just a space to store all your clothing. It can also be a dressing room, a dedicated place of privacy for getting ready in the morning and at night. The purpose of the dressing room is to give a single place for this one daily task. 

Meanwhile, it also can keep your bedroom and bathroom clutter-free. Grooming supplies and clothing can all stay within the confines of this one enclosed space. Even so, you can also keep the walk-in closet itself pristine with proper storage design and good organizational habits. 

Everyone has to iron their clothes at some point, and this task usually happens in the laundry room or bedroom. A walk-in closet can house your ironing board as well. If the room is small, it could have a wall mount and fold out. If it is spacious, you could have an island counter on which to put the ironing board.

Elements of a Great Walk-In Closet

One can have a walk-in closet, but one could also have a great walk-in closet. What makes a walk-in closet worth it depends on its functionality. It must be large enough to house your wardrobe, and its storage design must fit your clothing needs as well. It must also be a room that will not likely become a sea of clothing on the floor. Construction-wise, a walk-in closet should not eat into precious bedroom or bathroom space and have proper ventilation and lighting.
