we are designing a house and have allotted 16'6 x 4'6 for our bedroom closet, with no idea if this is adequate?

For a 'normal' sized home, that's more than enough for 'his' and 'hers' closet by dividing the space in half.

It depends ... if your husband is ok to use 2 ft of closet and let you have the 14 ft then you're good ... just kidding. I think you have plenty of space but if I were you, I would just go and measure the length of the rod(s) on which your current clothes are hung and see how many feet of rod you are using now.

The length seems good but personally I would make it a bit wider.

Just something to consider: I find that a width of 4 ft 6 in. is not wide enough to have 2 parallel rods on each side of the closet. You should allocated 20 in. for the width of a garment put on a hanger. Let's suppose that you were to install 2 rods parallel, it would give you only 14 in. between the two rods to walk which is not enough.
So, if you install 16 ft 6 in. length of rod in a single row, you can do like you have planned: allocated a total width of 4 ft 6 in. to walk inside or another option, (and you may or you may not like it), is to just do a long closet with sliding (or bi-fold) doors opening from you bedroom. In that case you would need to allot only 20 in. instead of 4 ft 6 in.
