Trends are always changing, whether you’re dealing with clothing or cars or custom closet design. So, what will closets look like in the next year? Here are a few trends that are here to stay in 2018.
1. Islands in your closet
A built-in dresser island is a popular storage solution for larger closets. Not only does it provide you with more space to keep clothing and other accessories, it gives you a base of operations when getting ready in the morning. Pair it with a little bench or stool so you have a place to put your shoes on.
2. Closet drawers
Installing drawers within your closet gives you an out-of-the-way organization method. The only challenge is making sure you choose quality materials. Drawers undergo a lot of wear and tear, so you’ll need to invest in durable wood rather than particle board.
3. Drawer dividers
A lot of people have a “junk drawer” somewhere in their homes. But while this system is fine for storing batteries and stationery, you might want to keep your clothing a little more organized.
That’s where drawer dividers can help, allowing you to keep your shirts, socks, underwear and anything else you keep in your closet drawers from getting jumbled.
4. Shoe storage
How big is your shoe selection? Enough to put them in a few boxes? Or have you cultivated a larger collection?
If it’s the latter option, you may want to devote one of the walls of your walk-in closet – or part of a wall – to shoe cubbies. Just make these spaces big enough – or invest in adjustable shelving – so you can accommodate boots and heels.
5. His and hers closets
His and hers closets are spaces that are typically the same when it comes to size and style, but gives each partner room for their own needs. So, if you have a lot of jewelry, and your husband has a bunch of vintage t-shirts, a his and hers closet gives you room for everything.
6. Two ways to hang clothes
Do you have more long dresses than closet space? Consider a double hanging system, featuring two racks to hang your clothing: one up top for longer items like slacks and dresses, one closer to the floor for blouses, skirts and shirts.
