    Hello! I am building and currently my architect has a 16' 6" x 6' 6 1/2" closet designed for us. Do you think this is too narrow? The entrance can be on either side or both (into the bathroom and bedroom). The bedroom is on the shorter wall. Thank you for your time!!!

    Hi vmw102, what would you like to accomplish with the space? Would like an island in the center? If you want to send me an email and the plans, I can glance at it and see if the space is appropriate for your needs. My email is janie@closettheory.com

    With regard to your closet, you could do a small peninsula of drawers to separate space. Send me your email address, and I can send you some rough photos of a closet I just finished fitting this description.

    We have a framed in closet diamensions 121/2 ft long x 5 ft wide x 8' ht We have a 2ft pocket door offset on the 12.5 side. Would your design work? Is this cost effective? Looking to do this on a budget. Our designer went MIA mid stream of project. Now left to our own devices yikes...I am not a designer.... Thanks

    Unfortunately, this design won't work because you need 24" at least for hanging. You may want to put shallow shelves on the 12.5 side for shoes. Are you having the closet custom built? I'd love to see how I can help.

    Thank you for posting the dimensions. I've read that 3ft is minimum for walkway between wardrobes, but assuming this is closer to 5 ft. which looks perfect!

    Thank you for your great question, desliebeth. To make sure I answer your question with thoroughness, I asked this question to an expert realtor, Kim Gellatly of Gellatly Properties. http://www.gellatlyproperties.com/ She said that "every year the National Association of Realtors comes out with the best cost vs. remodel statistics but unfortunately they have not featured this yet to show statistics of cost recouped when completed. My professional opinion would be if it is a 4 bedroom home or larger this would be good, but if it is a 3 bedroom home then taking out a room for a closet would make it a 2 bedroom home which could actually be challenging for resale."

    Thank you for your thorough, thoughtful answer. Makes sense.

    18" is a great depth for folded items, yes! If decreasing the cabinet depth to 18", to open up the walkway, I would definitely do that.

    Do you mean paint color for the walls? If so, have fun with the wall colors! You can even use fun wall paper for the exposed walls. Stay tuned for a new closet that we just completed with wall paper.

          What Houzz contributors are saying:

          Fred Albert added this to Turn That Spare Room Into a Walk-in ClosetJan 6, 2014

          Things to consider: Almost any space can be turned into a closet, although the task will be easier if the room is a standard rectangle or square. “Working with different angles is trickier,” says Janie Lowrie of Closet Theory, a West Coast closet design firm.While windows can provide welcome illumination and ventilation, too much sun can fade clothes, and too many windows can reduce the amount of wall space available. (The room’s heat source shouldn’t affect your decision; it’s easy to notch around baseboards or to redirect floor vents into a toe kick.)

          Dylan Chappell Architects added this to Think Like an Architect: How to Work With a Design Wish ListMar 4, 2013

          Put on your thinking cap and make a list of everything you desire for your project. Get it all on paper — no holding back. Next gather up all your ideabooks and that binder or folder filled with lists and sketches, and give it all to your architect. Don’t worry about trying to think or talk like an architect. Your job is to explain and show your wish list in a way that makes sense to you. The architect’s job is to understand you and translate the essence of your wish list into great design.

          Galley style would work for our layout. Like small bench in middle if feasible
