Today’s Closets: Sanctuaries of Style

In the past, closets were nothing more than dark rooms used to contain a wardrobe. Thankfully, those days are over. Today’s closets have evolved into sanctuaries of style and comfort. While a number of trends have contributed to this much-needed change, the two that we experience most often are the incorporation of furniture and lighting. Let’s take a look at both.

Furnished in Fashion

Many homeowners are opting for bedrooms that are clean in design, evoking an almost Zen-like feel. To achieve this element of serenity, homeowners are opting to keep as little furniture in the bedroom as possible. The result? The closet has become a complete dressing room and space for relaxation and comfort.

Large armoires and dressers that one would typically place in a bedroom are being integrated into the closet. Homeowners are also placing sofas and lounge chairs in their closets, allowing them to sit back and relax in style. When you have a sophisticated wardrobe, you want to be surrounded by it. We help you create not just a closet, but your own personal style retreat.


Integrated Lighting to Illuminate Your Wardrobe

Closets of today have stepped up their game by incorporating lighting that is both practical and aesthetic. By infusing lighting into the closet and interior casework, homeowners are no longer at the mercy of a single lightbulb to illuminate their wardrobes. With integrated lighting, the guessing game is over.

Lighting integrated into your closet and casework brings out the pure colors of your clothing. Now, you don’t have to wonder what your bejeweled gown will look like under the warm undertones of a ballroom at your next gala, or whether the navy suit or black dress you’ve carefully selected for your next presentation will hold up under the lights of the boardroom. The result: you look your best every time you step out.
