Are Closets the New Sitting Rooms?

We’re certainly ready to make a case for it! Gone are the days where closets served simply as a clothes depository, often cluttered and packed to the brim. Enter the new era of closets—chic, boutique-like spaces that guests are—get this—invited to hang out in. You heard that right, closets are the new sitting rooms!

There are a number of factors that have prompted this transition—the pandemic forcing people to reevaluate how their homes function; the upsurge of self-care mentality; the effect of influencers showing off their closet renovations and us wanting to follow suit. Whatever your reason, now is the time to take advantage of one of the hottest trends in home design—a boutique closet.

Imagine yourself sitting on an upholstered ottoman in the middle of your perfectly designed closet, sipping a glass of bubbly from the built-in mini fridge and chatting with friends who have stopped over before a dinner out. Or imagine yourself alone in your perfectly appointed closet, easily sifting through the impeccably organized racks and drawers, actually enjoying the process of getting ready in your own personal space. It’s a sense of refuge, a sense of home, and a little taste of old-world elegance. Those are the sentiments that boutique closets create.

So how exactly do you design a boutique closet? First, you need to think about your closet footprint. If you’re building a new home, make sure you’re allotting the right amount of space to make your closet feel luxurious and house all of the accessories you desire. If you’re renovating an existing space, think about if your current footprint is large enough or if you need to increase the size of the space. Second, give us a call! We’ll lead you through the entire process, showing you layout, finish and accessory options to make your closet a space you want to show off time and time again!

Let’s get started today!

 

Wine Storage But Make it Art

Wine storage, but make it art! That’s our philosophy when we approach residential and commercial wine storage projects. Whether you’re looking to fit a display into an unused space or create a stunning focal point, we’re here to make your wine storage look as good as it functions! Here are our favorite ways to add attractive wine storage to your home or business:

Wine Wall

Wine walls work equally well residentially and commercially. For businesses like restaurants and hotels, we usually go larger to accommodate their inventory. But in residential projects, we find smaller displays work better so as not to overwhelm or take over a space. Wine walls are an especially great option when you have limited floor space.

Wine Room

For our hardcore wine enthusiasts or our largescale commercial projects, we recommend a wine room or cellar. These larger spaces provide enough room for your collection or inventory and can be done in many attractive ways. Some clients even choose to turn their wine rooms into a makeshift tasting room by adding barstools, a countertop and lighting.

Wine Staircase  

This is our favorite way to add wine storage when space is at a minimum, both residentially and commercially. You can go more rustic with wall shelving or more modern with glass-enclosed storage. Either way, it’s a creative and attractive way to incorporate wine storage into your home or business.

Design Trend: Dual-Purpose Rooms

At Behind Closed Doors we’re all about maximizing functionality, which is why we’re big fans of dual-purpose rooms. Why have a laundry room AND a mudroom when you can combine the two? Why dedicate an entire room to guests who only visit a few times a year when you can add a Murphy Bed to a home office? As the preeminent leader in storage solutions in Coastal Maryland and Delaware, we offer tons of creative solutions to take advantage of one of the hottest trends in home design right now: dual-purpose rooms. See our top tips below to start making the most of every room in your home!

Laundry + Mudrooms

Typically located off the garage or a side entrance, lots of people are opting for a combined laundry and mudroom rather than dedicating a separate space to each. If you think about it, it makes sense. Both rooms require similar materials—durable, water-resistant flooring and cabinet or cubby storage—and both serve as a dumping place (whether it be dirty clothes in the laundry room or jackets, shoes, backpacks, etc., in the mudroom). When combining the two rooms, most clients opt for a combination of cabinets, cubbies, lockers, hooks, and benches to accommodate all those dropped items and to store all your typical laundry room necessities.

Office + Guest Room

2022 06 30 0004
 

This one is a no-brainer. Home offices were once a neglected, sterile space used only sparingly, but they’re now a worthwhile addition thanks to the increase of people working from home part or full-time. As home offices become more coveted, it only makes sense to double up these spaces as guest rooms with the help of a Murphy Bed. The great thing about wall beds is they’re the ultimate space-saving solution. When not in use, they fold back and out of the way. Plus the lines we carry are so much more attractive than the Murphy Beds of past!

Closet + Bathroom

There’s something so luxurious about a master bathroom that flows into a master closet. We love when clients choose to blend these spaces together for a smooth transition throughout the master suite. It gives you easy access to all the things you need while getting ready—clothes, shoes, accessories, hair products, makeup, and more! And it makes you feel like you have your own little apartment inside your house. Who wouldn’t love that?!
