8 Dream Closets Go Beyond Storing Clothes

Yes, they’ve still got hangers and drawers. But these luxurious dressing rooms also have views, artwork or an added purpose.

In the past the bedroom closet was the place where clothing was hidden from view. Today the emphasis is on creating functional, organized closets that double as comfortable places in which to hang out, work and play.
Spa-like retreat. This restored 1910 bathroom, designed by Solomon + Bauer + Giambastiani Architects, has a contemporary vibe with a definite slant toward pampering. Its generous glass sliding doors display robes and towels while showing off the room’s spaciousness.

Room with a view. While most closets can’t offer a view (maybe there’s no room to add a window, or it’s built within an interior space), this closet takes full advantage of its vantage point from inside San Francisco’s Millennium Tower.

A bench offers additional shelving to make up for any lost storage space or a dedicated seat to enjoy the sights. The window theme continues through the use of frosted glass doors and a cabinet topped with thick glass.

Library effect. Architect Dan Featheringill ofFeather & Gill Architectsgave this closet the qualities of an elegant study, with bird’s eye maple paneling and hickory flooring that were blackened with a stain from PureColor. Wood appliqué ceiling tiles were chosen in a pattern similar to that of the client’s favorite store: Chanel.

Warm lighting and a comfortable chair offer a cozy spot for getting ready or curling up with a book.

Corner office. A large closet is a beautiful thing, though not everyone has the space to dedicate just to clothes. By putting a desk in the closet, like architect Taylor Hannah did in this spacious setting, it’s possible to use one inspiring room for two purposes.
Boutique. Martin Perri Interiors created this design as part of a European contemporary project to emulate a high-end boutique. High-gloss polyester lacquer cabinets set the stage for accessory displays behind half-inch glass doors. Motion sensors turn the cabinetry’s backlighting on when someone enters the room. Additional LED side lighting is provided by manually operated switches. An embossed leather stool sits prominently so as to give the homeowner a view of her wardrobe options. Plush carpeting atop oak floors adds comfort to the dressing experience.

Art gallery. Why should the clothes and accessories get all the adulation? Art is a wonderful opportunity to add color, beauty and perhaps a bit of amusement to the dressing experience.

This closet’s rich, monochromatic palette, designed in keeping with the rest of the sophisticated home, creates a sleek backdrop for an art exhibit that reflects the client’s nautical passion.

Other possibilities for any closet include framed photographs of family members and pets, and inspiring fashion shots.

Party pad. Wake up and get excited to start your day by way of a vibrant color. This closet, part of a whole-house renovation designed by Dencity and built by Cablik Enterprises, features vivacious purple cabinets from Kingdom Woodworks.

The contemporary chandelier matched with shag carpeting and a polka dot love seat would make anyone want to crank up some tunes and have a good time, no matter what time of the morning.

Washing-dressing room. Can you think of a better time saver when it comes to laundry than creating a closet around the laundry room? Or is it vice versa? Walker Woodworking designed this clever double-duty space as part of a house renovation to enable good chore flow.
