If you are like most homeowners, you are always looking for ways to maximize existing space in your home. Unfortunately only a few homeowners have the luxury of building new add-ons for the home that include an expansive walk in closet. For the vast majority of folks, we have to maximize every inch of space that we have been given in the overall space given by the original architect and builder. Many homeowners look for ways to expand the closet space by taking away from living space to create more storage space. This is the number one request for a closet remodel project designed to meet your needs that involves moving walls. Taking this route can have an impact on the doors, flooring and base molding, so it is not something that is entered upon lightly. The great thing about the new closet design trends for 2016 is that you have more creative options for storage solutions.
Let’s take a look at one of the hottest trends in closet solutions – The look and feel of the closet materials. The most classic look for closets has always been the traditional white closet shelving. Over the years, you have come to see a cranberry color that is known as Cherry or natural color. The latest colors in closet materials is bringing interesting textures and colors into the space, with colors that are Thermal Fused Laminates (TFL). These colors range in a variety of wood veneer finishes that range from light to dark colors. The great thing about these color options for closets is that they can match the personality and style of the homeowner or person the closet is designed for. There are several great manufacturers of TFL materials such as Formica, Wilson Art, Arborite, etc.
Integrating technology into a custom closet is huge right now. There are so many motorized products to choose from. One of the hottest items for maximizing closet space is by having a revolving closet system. Benefits of having this super clever item include the fact that it allows you to store all of your clothing in a single space. It also works for small closet areas with limited space. Personally, I like the revolving aspect of this item and the fact that you can view all of your clothes at a glance. This helps you keep track of everything and not let things fall by the wayside because you don’t see them or forget about them.
