Need help with walk-in closet design.
October 10, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have a room we want to make into a walk-in closet. 13.3 X 11.3 ft.
I need ideas and help if someone has done it already.
Going back and forth?? sp.? as to what to do.
Ten foot ceiling.

I've never done it because frankly I don't have that many clothes, but here are a few inspiration pics for you:

You could talk to:
1. A closet specialist, such as California closets, or Home Depot or Lowes
2. You could hire an architectural planner
3. You could hire a finish carpenter who has done lots of closet work.
The third option would probably be the least expensive one. If you find chests of drawers you want the carpenter to incorporate into the plan, that's great. You'd probably find them at Ikea or Home Depot or Lowes. Or the finish carpenter may know of a good source for such items.

Be aware that most of your closet should be double hung, with one rod at a higher height than another. I think you'll even have space for pull down rods which will create a 3rd layer of rodding for clothing at the top of your closet. A small section of the closet should be left for long items such as dresses or ball gowns if you're into that sort of thing. Allow plenty of space for drawers, sweater shelves and shoe and handbag storage.

A good carpenter can help you, but don't just say I want a "to die for closet". They have the skills to execute a plan, but the plan needs to be worked out in advance. Such a large closet would be wonderful.
