5 Helpful Ways to Design an Optimal Master Closet

Posted on Friday, September 5th, 2014 by Govi Reddy

The master closet has come a long way in just a few years. What was once considered just a functional space has now been transformed into an extension of the master bedroom, as well as a sanctuary from the day’s stress. It’s an escape where outfits can be coordinated, makeup is applied and styles are refined.

Yes, the master closet is now every bit as much about form as it is function. Here are five spectacular and often under-utilized ways you can transform your closet.

master closet Vertical lighting 

Not all lights are created equal. There are lights that simply illuminate your closet, and then there are lights that bathe you in illumination, accentuating your most attractive features. For the most flattering lighting, install fixtures that run vertically from the top to the bottom of your closet mirror. Avoid overhead and recessed lighting, which can cast harsh shadows beneath your eyes, nose and chin.

More mirrors

Turn your closet into a dressing room by installing floor-to-ceiling mirrors on three different walls. This will allow you to see yourself from every angle, which makes it much easier to decide which outfit to wear.


Early mornings are a lot easier to tolerate if you’ve got your favorite music vibrating through your ears, a cup of coffee in your hand and the weather report on the television. One of the easiest ways to take your closet to the next level is to install high-end electronics, including a coffee bar, stereo system with overhead speakers and a flat-screen television.

Center Island 

The center island has long been a staple of kitchens, but it’s now migrating into master closets. Not only can islands provide a larger space to lay out clothing options, but they can also provide extra room for drawers and an opportunity to add a touch of high-end elegance with a granite countertop.

Add a window to the world

What should you wear? That depends largely on two things — your mood and the temperature, both of which are largely affected by the weather. So see for yourself what the day will bring and what outfit you should wear by installing a window in your walk-in closet.

If you want to transform your closet, start with a center island with a granite countertop, and contact Arch City Granite & Marble, Inc. today to begin the conversation.
