Some may favor the look of darker wood or industrial-built storage. "We absolutely take the home's interior design into account when planning the closet," says San- dra Sokol of Closets by Design. "We want to coordi- nate colors and select counter top opons that work with wall and flooring colors. We also help the homeowner select doors that complement other cabinetry in the home." Some clients want their closet space to have its own unique personality, according to Ali Rudnick of California Closets Nashville. "We do take the aesthec of the home into consideraon, but we love making the new space tell its own story. We collaborate with the homeowners to incorporate their lifestyle and preferences into consideraon each step of the way," she says. Closets are becoming a design element that is in the style of the home, says Liz Jenkins of A Fresh Space. "People spend a lot of me in a walk-in master closet and it makes sense to create a space that feels like it's part of the home," she says. Mindy Bledsoe of Tailored Living says, "If some- one wants to step outside the basic white closet, they should, of course, select finishes that are co- hesive with the design aesthec of the adjacent spaces or the home itself. "A custom closet that is well-designed and al- lows adjustability to meet future needs will likely never need to be replaced. So it's a good idea to stay with meless design choices—however there's no reason you can't add a pop of color with decorave drawer faces, glass insert doors, or col- orful hardware." Nong that the closet is a very personal space is Adam Floyd of The Closet Company. "It's honestly the one room in the house that almost no one but the client enters. Every space we design and build is done specifically for the individual client, and we get frequent requests for designs that are driven by lifestyles and hobbies." Assessing a client's storage needs is the first step for Sadhna Williams of Alabaster & Walnut De- signs. Aer that, she says, it's a maer of solving a puzzle. Large closets obviously are preferred, as they can also serve as a dressing room. Photo courtesy California Closets.
