Master Closet

An unused bonus room with dormer windows and slanted ceilings is custom fit for a master closet. There is daylighting from the dormer windows, plenty of closet storage, and ample dressing area. An antique dresser is reused for large sweaters. An antique bench is repurposed and reused for closet seating. Photo by Brett Drury

Can you share the dimensions of this closet? - We are adding a walk in closet over our garage so the ceiling will not be a full 8 feet and we will have some sloping on the side which follows the roof pitch. We are trying to come up with the best design using shelves, drawers, shoe storage and hanging clothes storage. Our space will be 9' x 12'. I like the way you used your space.

Thanks. This closet has five feet times the length of the room of 8 foot ceiling height. The area where you see the ceiling fixture is 8' ceiling.

The mirror doors you see in the photo fit in a 40"w x 78"h opening. They were custom made by the cabinet maker. The doors have wood backs with inset mirror on the fronts. They swing on piano hinges.

What is the estimated cost of this?

I've just now seen your question. We used a local craftsman doing mostly on site work and dealing with uneven ceilings and walls. The cost of cabinetry, closet hardware, mirrors, and electrical work was upwards of $17,000. We reused the original carpet.

Nice job, very similar to the one we need to do.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Make your mirrors work double duty. In the funky and often constricted space of attic closets, mirrors can help you coordinate an outfit while also reflecting light to make the space seem larger. “For somewhat dark and odd-shaped spaces, my first thought is to harness and expand any available natural lighting,” says Schold. A mirror placed across from a window or near a skylight will help bounce natural light around the space, helping it to feel airier and larger. Utilize the entry wall. When you walk into an attic closet, turn around and check out the wall that contains the door: It may have more potential than you think. “It is pretty easy to make the entry wall look like a paneled wall with full-height mirrors as the panels,” says Clarke. “The door can act as one panel while making an adjacent — or even better, a third — panel operable so that you get a multiple-sided dressing mirror without sacrificing hanging or dresser spaces.”
