What do home buyers want in a closet design?


As home buying in the Lake Area is HOT HOT HOT, homebuyers are expecting more out of their closet space. Here are the top five closet trends that are in demand.

1. Adjustability. Homebuyers want to be able to move their closet around to fit their needs. Whether it’s adjusting a shelf to accommodate thick sweaters or lowering a hanging rod to reach clothes easily, homebuyers want more functionality from their shelving. We tell our clients all the time that their closets need to be tweaked two to three times per year. So when you are clearing out the clothes from the summer season that you didn’t wear, go ahead and adjust your shelves to make room for your winter boots. Our systems have the strength to adjust whenever the mood strikes and the versatility to add and adjust for years to come.

2. His and Her Closets. Homebuyers want to create perfect harmony with their significant other with a his and her closet. They are personalizing their space too! Even men are decking out their area, some are even transforming their closet into a ‘man cave’. Women are adding touches of serious glamour with chandeliers and wallpaper accents. If you are building one closet, divide the sides in the closet with a distinction in product design for a his side and a her side.

3. White Finishes. Homebuyers are having a moment right now with white finishes. They want bright white finishes to liven up their closets and highlight their wardrobe. Frankly, none of us are getting any younger, white will always be a classic while allowing you to easy sort between brown, blue and black slacks.

4. Ditch the Dresser! Say goodbye to wasted space and hello to a minimalistic bedroom. Homebuyers everywhere are looking for ways to nix their dressers, and want drawers and open shelving in the closet to store their entire wardrobe. Homebuyers want their closet to be a one-stop-shop when it comes to getting dressed. Our systems boast a full line of components like drawers, hampers and pull out shoe shelves to effortlessly contain any size wardrobe homebuyers throw at it.

5. Maximizing Every Inch of Space. Homebuyers are no longer messing around with wasted space. They want to take advantage of every available space; after all, storage is a premium! Closets have nooks and crannies that were going to waste, but not anymore. Homebuyers are demanding shelving that maximizes space by going wall-to-wall. No wasted space!
