To keep the peace create happy spaces by designing his and her closets you will love.
Step 1: When framing your bedroom frame in two closets.
The best time to add two closets is to do it during the framing stage of your bedroom. Instead of having one traditional large closet. Have it where the builders can frame two separate spaces. It really doesn’t cost anything more because it’s done early. Make sure you have a specific size in mind for each closet. My closet space was 110 by 68 inches and my husband was 85 by 69 inches. As you can see my closet was bigger 🙂
Tips: When my husband and I were designing my closet spaces, we noticed that there was a space in between the two closets. We asked the builder to frame a little linen closet for our towels and sheets or whatever we wanted to add in there. We also framed little space for sliding doors so we didn’t use regular door which takes up space. None of this cost anything extra because it was done during the framing stage.
Organizing the shelving and baskets.
Everyone has different needs when it comes to closets that why I feel this is so important to get it right the first time when designing your closet. My husband tends to be a neat freak. By having my own closet designed the way I want it. I can keep it messy and not feel guilty about it. I have specific shelving spaces for my things.
Our builder used a closet design system that is very similar to this EASY CLOSET SYSTEM.
My closet was bigger because I had specific areas I needed for my shoes, hats, and pocketbooks. Both of us used baskets we purchased from Pier One. We labeled each basket, so it was easy to find what we were looking for.
My husband’s closet was smaller so he needed a specific area for his suits, shirts, and pants. He didn’t need much-hanging clothing space.
