Need help with walk-in closet design for master bedroom
April 2, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Just moved into a house with a closet in the master that needs a redesign. Is it better to put clothes into the closet so the designer can see what is needed, or have them view an almost empty closet? Really need help soon as most clothes are still sitting in "clothes packing boxes".

I suggest you put everything in the closet that you would like stored in there. Also make available anything else that does not fit. A good designer will then know what the "pieces" are and make the "pieces" fit in the space.

A closet designer will know. Make a list of the stuff you wear all the time, sometimes, rarely, and numbers. It's just as easy as seeing it all stuffed in there. They might also give you a better idea of what might help you organize your inventory. Good luck!

Good advice, thank you. I had no idea where to begin. The closet is about 10x6, but about 15 feet high. It is really an odd design, with rods near the top also; we bought a clothes hook in anticipation of putting off season things up top. I am looking forward to a better plan.

The "shepherd's hook" is a good idea. Visual info will help. How you space your clothes can make a difference for the designer too. Any "inventory" info (visual is better, written is good) will help the designer personalize it to you.

Since your ceiling is so high consider pull down rods to better utilize the unreachable space.

If closet is 6' wide, and hanging on both sides, there is not enough room to pull down pull down rod and access easily. Many are broken due to improper operation.
