Include These Elements In Your Dream Home's Master Walk-In Closet

Perhaps the best thing about hiring a custom home builder to build your dream home is that anything you can dream up can typically be implemented. One thing that the average home may not have but that a dream home should definitely include is a large walk-in closet off the master bedroom. If this room appeals to you, take some time to envision exactly what you want in this space, and then share these details with your custom builder. He or she may even be able to make some suggestions based on past building projects that can make this space one of your favorite spots in your home. Here are some elements to consider including.

Skylight

One of the issues with the average walk-in closet is that it lacks natural light. Because each of the walls of the room is lined with shelving or other storage for clothing, it's rare to have a window in a walk-in closet. You can get around this dilemma by having your custom builder install a skylight in the ceiling above the space. This way, you'll have natural light to help you assess how certain articles of clothing look when they're paired together, which may be difficult with artificial lighting.

Sliding Door

Your custom builder will want to know what style of door to include at the entrance of the walk-in closet. While this might seem like a minor deal, it's important to consider. Instead of an average swinging door, consider a sliding one — and perhaps a large and stylish barn-style door on a heavy-duty overhead track to increase the visual appeal of the space. This type of door is handy for a walk-in closet because it doesn't intrude on the space. For example, if you and your spouse are using the walk-in closet at the same time, one of you can enter and exit without risking hitting the other person with a swinging door.

Adequate Floor Space

It's also important to ensure that your custom walk-in closet has adequate floor space. By the time you add a variety of shelving solutions to the room and possibly an island-style unit to hold smaller pieces, floor space may be at a premium. You'll want floor space so that you can walk around with different outfits and shoes on, just as you do when trying things on in stores. If the space is too small, you'll need to walk out of the closet, which isn't handy.
